Happy Monday Guys! By now many of you will probably know that one thing that always brings a smile to my face is stationary. I am a self confessed stationary hoarder with too many cute notebooks, planners and cards to even count! In fact one of my ultimate dreams is to one day have my own line of stationary with beautiful planners and wedding invitations (aim high guys right?) Each year around this time, I treat myself to a brand new planner and this time I went for my second one Ban.do which I’m already obsessed with! As cheesy as it sounds, there’s something so refreshing about a opening a brand new planner and penning in the dates of things to look forward to.
You might have seen my post two weeks ago where I visited the Wonder Photo Shop to print some instax photo’s and for months it’s been on my mind to make a scrapbook of my first year in New York with all of my polaroids taken at momentous occasions, but then I bought my new planner and thought of an even better idea. I used a couple of my favorite instax photo’s to mark important dates into my planner so that when I come to the week I have a cute little reminder of something from the past. As I said before, sometimes in this digital age I find myself forgetting to print my photo’s, and the few times I do print them, they usually end up in a drawer somewhere until one day I feel like a walk down memory lane! But by sticking them into my new planner, I’ll be able to see them more often which is great! I used to absolutely adore doing little DIY projects like this, but I feel since moving to NYC there just hasn’t been enough time to get my creative thinking hat on. But this particular project literally took 15 minutes and was super easy to do, especially if you use Washi Tape instead of glue! That way you can actually remove the instax photos once done with your planner next year!
