Please raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by your Silhouette Cameo, Cricut Explore, or other sticker cutting machine.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Believe me when I say that I too have experienced my own fair share of troubles when it comes to fighting with my Silhouette. There was shouting. There was crying. There was lots of lying on the floor staring at the ceiling wondering where I went wrong. In fact, I can vividly remember my various stages ...

You will need to create new designs several times a year to attract customers to your Etsy shop. Generally speaking, the more often you release new stickers, the more visibility your Etsy shop will get, and the more likely you will be to receive orders. Most shops try to prepare new releases for each month. However, this might be too fast or slow paced for you based upon your lifestyle. It will be up to you to determine how frequently you can produce new ...

Let's talk about planner stickers.

Don't worry, this isn't an intervention. In fact, it's quite the opposite!

I know firsthand just how addicting planner stickers can be; there's just something about receiving a nicely packaged envelope in the mail filled with colorful little stickers that can turn even the worst days upside down. Then, peeling the perfectly cut stickers off their sheets and carefully arranging them in your planner is about as therapeutic as it can get. There are so many amazing sticker shops on Etsy that it is hard not to think to yourself ...


Xaga Doll May Box Opening - Ball Jointed Doll

Feb. 9, 2017, 2:02 p.m.

After a long, highly anticipated wait, my first ball jointed doll has arrived! For those of you unfamiliar with ball jointed dolls (BJDs), these figures are highly collectible pieces of art, hand sculpted by artists and cast in smooth resin. Although the term "ball jointed doll" refers to any doll that has ball and socket joints, it is most commonly used within the doll niche to refer to a particular subset of dolls created by Asian companies.

Because these dolls are generally made to order and ship from Asia, it can sometimes take several weeks or even months to recieve ...

Happy November!

november bullet journal setup

Today I wanted to share with all of you my November bullet journal setup! The biggest difference this month is the move from my Leuchtturm1917 back into my Webster's Pages Color Crush A5 Planner. I like to jump back and forth from planner to planner; It really just all depends on what suits me and my lifestyle the best at the moment. In prior months, I was really into carrying my bullet journal around with me (thus needed something small and compact).

However, I have really been into decorating and embellishing my pages lately. Cute papers. Post ...


How to Mod an Obitsu Head onto an Azone Body

If you've read my Obitsu/Azone Hybrid Comparison Guide, you know that I'm a big fan of the Azone body. It's just so cute!

However, the neck hole of the Obitsu 21 cm Female Head is too small to fit onto the Azone Pure Neemo Flection body. The natural opening to the head is only as big as the smallest, top most portion of the Azone body.

After months and months of sitting in pieces on my shelf, I finally decided that it was time to overcome my fear of accidentally messing up the Obitsu head and ...

Who doesn't love stickers?

Seriously, stickers are awesome. I used to have a sticker collection when I was younger... although, at that time, my idea of a sticker collection was using all the stickers I got and putting them all into one notebook to display. I'd just fill the pages with as many stickers as I could find.

I had forgotten about this love for many years until just recently, as I have been falling down the ...


My First Happy Planner - Be Bright - 2016/2017

My First Happy Planner

Its been about 5 months since receiving my first planner, my Webster's Pages Color Crush A5 Planner in white. I am absolutely loving the customizability and functionality of the binder based system. However, like any good planner addict, I have decided that just one planner is not enough; I need more.

I have also been itching to try decorating the ever so popular vertical weekly layout. I have already accepted that I will shortly begin my downward spiral into the abyss that is sticker kits and no-white-space spreads. Don't worry; I've mentally prepared myself.

Anyways, without further ...
