WEEK IN REVIEW: 11.02.15 - 11.08.15

PLANNER: Gillio Firenze Medium Croco Grey Compagna
Inserts: SewMuchCrafting 2O1P (Personal sized)
STICKERS: Mostly from CreatingandCo with a few other stickers from one of the Happie Scrappie Planner kit, Scribbleprints Co, and KG Planner

It's been awhile. I'll try to make this part short. Was using the Erin Condren Life Planner for a few months but felt that #1) It made me UNorganized since I can't really future plan in that  #2) It's too big. 

I did get into all the hype about the planner stickers and such. You should see my Etsy wishlist. It's insane, Anyway, after I decided to move out of the ECLP, I went back to a binder planner (before it was the Filofax Domino in turquoise; but moved to the Gillio two weeks ago) but before I had moved in, I wanted to try out different inserts since I had been using the diyFish inserts for awhile and I wanted something simple.

Choosing the type of inserts was a bit difficult. I wanted them all. I ended up with the 2 Days on 1 Page inserts. Some days are super busy and others are quite slow. I don't write very big nor do I write very small. I think I write at a medium size. 

It took me a long time to get the hang of decorating. In fact, the week I'm showing you is the first week I really liked how I decorated. The weeks previously were decorated horribly or not even decorated at all (except I drew in check boxes. Does that count as decoration?). I still have some planner stickers from when I became an ECLP sticker addict.

Updates... 11/1/15

Don't mind me, I'm blogging on my phone, in a car waiting for a movie to start.

Work updates:
Currently I'm on vacation. I go back to work on Saturday. These will be the last days off (paid and requested) we can get before our black out period (can't request any extra days off unless it's an emergency or a medical thing)  which is very soon.

We're hiring people like mad. We've been getting about 10 new hires a week and soon it'll be new hires daily instead of weekly.  Also, a lot of positions were cut and changed. I don't know why they did it right before the holiday season. All the crazy changes...

They've also started training one of our cashiers to be a seasonal audit associate which is good. Because being in audit during holiday season is crazy. And I work in audit on the busiest days (weekends), so I'll get some help. Yay!

I+TA updates:
Now that I've finished the customs and etc, I'm going to relax a bit and work slowly on the collections that I want out. I plan on having the Card captor Sakura one out soon and will also have a small holiday set.

There are some new products/projects  I've been working on the side also. Liquid lipsticks which have been in the process for over a year.  Non-subscription themed boxes which I had planned for over two years. Etc. :) I'm quite excited about them.

I kind of want to change the layout of the blog. But... Don't know what.

I also plan on doing the week in review posts again. I kind of lost touch of them since I had switched planners and am using a different time type of planner insert than I've used before. Obviously the ECLP ones are different than traditional planner inserts and before I was using WO2P vertical and before those, I used the DO1P inserts. Now, I'm using 2DOP (2 days on a page). I'm also, surprisingly using the monthkt inserts a lot too

Anyway that's enough babble.
