Littlebit Passed Away

April 29, 2019
Littlebit Passed Away

Hello everyone,

As you can tell from the title, my cat Littlebit has passed away. She was the inspiration behind half of this blog’s name. She was almost fifteen years old. I remember the day we got her. This couple was going to get the few kittens they saw and take them to a shelter and were having no luck. My dad handed my sister and I a fishing net, and we came back with a tiny white fluff ball, who had two different color eyes. I remember my mom holding her on her chest and swearing we were going to give her away. However, it was my mom who gave her name to her.

At the beginning of this month, I was already having a lot of things going on in my life, and was under a lot of stress. And unfortunately, it seemed like just another thing that went wrong when my cat started to go downhill. She was having a lot of trouble breathing and she was eating or drinking. We took her to the vet two or three times, and found she did have an enlarged heart. They had given her some medicine to try, and unfortunately the next evening she passed away.

It Has Been Difficult

With all the things going on in my life at that time, it really hit me hard that when my princess Littlebit passed away. It’s been a few weeks now, and I still have moments where I come home and expect her to be there, or I think I hear her meowing to come inside. I don’t want to make this blog post too long, or really, it’s just that I’m still not in a place where I can dwell on her passing without tearing up. So, instead, I will be posting some of my favorite pictures of her, and I hope you all hug your pets today. Because while some people see them as just animals, they are apart of our families, and when they are gone… It hurts.

Make sure you love your furbabies today. And for those of you who are having trouble grieving the loss of a furbaby, be sure to check out “The Rainbow Bridge

Thank you all for your love.

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 my purchases from then on wisely. 

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. 

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. 

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.
