I tend to be one of those people who buys or receives a lovely new notebook but won't use it for fear of having to cross something out, or my handwriting looking naff and ruining it. Similarly, I've been putting off starting my scrapbooks because I've always thought I lack patience and artistic flair. I felt like I'd get inspiration from my Pinterest boards, try and do something similar, it turn out completely different/awful and me hate it.
I didn't think this current craze of using adult colouring books to relax would ever work out for me. I'm indecisive so it would take forever to choose from the evergrowing range of books available. Also, when I went to colour in, I'd get annoyed that it wasn't perfect or I'd wish I'd used different colours so the last thing it would be, is stress releiving! By now you probably get the jist of what I'm like and you probably can sense that I'm about to tell you I've overcome all this...you'd be correct and it feels great!
this by chance and learnt that, like with blogging, there's a whole community of people who decorate their planners into little pieces of art and share them on the internet (check out #plannergirl, #plannercommunity, #planneraddicts etc on Instagram), I was so so excited and enthusiastically started following some of my favourite accounts and furiously buying washi tapes, stickers and paperclips. I've found the dreamiest planner but before I invest in it, I'm seeing how I stick to decorating my current one. Not much of my stash has arrived yet but as you can see I've made a start towards decorating the upcoming week in my Frankie Magazine Journal.
