|11/9/18| Is It Too Early To Decorate For Christmas?

November 9, 2018

Is it too early to decorate for Christmas? This is a question that spirals around usually after Halloween every year, and it is one that I just don’t get. Why is everyone so obsessed with controlling Christmas decorations? If it’s November 1st and I want to put up Christmas lights, why does it bother you so much? If I put them up in April would it bother you then too? What if I left Christmas decorations up year round?

My Big Question

I think my big question is: Why do people put so much effort into hating other people for decorating early for Christmas? How does it affect you if I put Christmas decorations up in my house early? It’s not like I’m going around and demanding everyone go and start decorating for Christmas early too. It’s just what I’m doing. Honestly, people need to take a chill pill, and worry about themselves. If they don’t want to decorate until November 30th or December 1st, that’s fine. If people don’t want to decorate at all, that is fine.

My point is that Christmas is a time of year for people to come together with their families. Not everyone looks at Christmas religiously, and purely just on the fact that it is a time of year they can spend with the family they might not always get to see. Some people might start decorating early because they are excited to feel the spirit of the holiday. To feel the happiness that Christmas or being around family gives them.

Did I Decorate Already?

No, I didn’t. I have some cute Fall decorations I like to use, and I want to enjoy them for a few weeks before putting up my Christmas decorations. However, I am fully supportive of people who have already put up their Christmas decorations. Because for some people Christmas might be the one time of year that brings them true happiness and joy. It’s also really none of my damn business if they decide to decorate early or not too. Just throwing that out there πŸ™‚

What about you?

Did you decorate for Christmas already? On another note, who is getting ready for Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday? I’m already super excited, and planning out my shopping for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Planner Sticker Haul – August 2018

August 14, 2018

I think it’s time to do my first planner sticker haul for this blog. I haven’t really talked about this too much on this blog, but I love to plan. My planner is my life, and I use it every day. I bought my first Erin Condren planner last year, and my second one this year. I absolutely love the planner’s layout, and it’s a perfect style for me to make lists.

I started getting into planner stickers in the middle of last year, and I realized very quickly that I was addicted to buying the pretty stickers to go into my planner. The one thing that I didn’t count on was how pricey some of the planner stickers can be. With that in mind, I slowed down on buying planner stickers and chose myΒ purchases from then on wisely.Β 

Planner Sticker Haul

My purchases this time are for 1 week in September, October, November, and December. I purchased from a shop on etsy.com called The Glam Planner. This particular shop isn’t always open, as it kind of just depends on if the shop owner is on vacation or if they have too many orders. But if you like planner stickers, I definitely recommend going to check out this shop.Β 

Festival Stickers – September 2018

This particular kit was initially for Coachella, but I like the layout and look of the whole kit and decided to get it for my September kit. It’s kind of like saying get all the Summer fun in while you can because it’s about to be Fall and cold weather is coming.

Halloween Kit – October 2018

I really liked the bright colors on this kit, and thought it was perfect for Halloween. Unlike the usually full kits, I got this kit as an essentials kit. So there will be some white space on my spread for the week of Halloween, but I think there is so much going on in these full boxes it won’t matter.

Harry Potter Hogwarts – November 2018

I really am excited about this kit. Instead of getting a traditional Thanksgiving or Black Friday themed kit, I chose Harry Potter for November. I don’t know why, but it seemed to fit in with the whole fall theme.Β 

Furbaby Christmas – December 2018

This is another kit that isn’t a full covered spread, and only has the essentials. I loved the animals in this kit and thought the whole Christmas theme wasn’t overdone. I’m super excited to end the year with this kit.

Those are the four kits I purchased for the next four months. I do plan on buying more, probably around Black Friday/Cyber Monday, but for right now these four kits are on my to-do list. Well, my planner to-do list. I have plans to put the spread in for September around the middle of the month, but that could change. I do plan on posting a new blog post with my finished spread whenever I do get it done.

Are you into planner stickers? What are your favorite shops on Etsy? And, if you own your own Etsy shop, let me know, so I can check out your products. Check me out on Instagram, where you might see a sneak peek of my planner spreads.
