Kikki K Love +Giveaways!

About two weeks ago or so, I received an exciting package. I ordered a Kikki K Textured Leather Personal Planner, and a few accessories to go with it. I'm beyond excited!! Honestly, I've been so obsessed with it these last few weeks, it's put everything else on hold. I find myself playing and referring to it every. single. day. 

The color alone is enough to make me pull it out and stare at it all day. Gorgeous! Seriously, these photos do not do it justice. I immediately started setting it up, and filling it.

Stickers, project life cards, dashboard set ups, washi tape, the works. I've gone through every single tab. Every single page. Every pocket. Everything!

Personalizing, and decorating my pages. Oh the joy! A few years ago (and I mean long long ago), I was a huge planner fan, but it was never this much fun. I've figured out that even in this digital age, the physical act of writing something down seems to better help me remember my goals.

It helps keep me on track through out my day, month, year. All that jazz. Sure, just using a piece of paper to write down your errands works. However, I found I kept loosing my notes, or just forgetting to bring them along with me. When you have an entire day full of errands, it just gets plain irritating. 

Before I realized it, my planner was bursting. I was watching every you tube video available to help me make the most of my planner. SO many videos!

And the ideas are endless! I have to say, I'm in planner heaven! 

Well, it's worked out splendidly! There is definitely another purchase in my future! I'm thinking a medium perhaps?

So now for the fun part! Giveaway Time!! 

 I've decided to do TWO GIVEAWAYS! Yay!! 

The first is in honor of my new reborn obsession. Planner Love. Ready?...

Sew Dreamy

So I had this idea for a mug rug one day. From beginning to end, it was a total improv project. I never really knew what this was going to look like, as most of my projects go, but this turned out 'Sew Dreamy'! 

The idea came to me when I was on a call. I started sketching this cutie on paper, simply because I'd rather be asleep dreaming of sewing, instead of on such a long drawn out boring call. 

The backing is Michael Miller, that I scored from a IG destash. It's a beautiful honey brown color. 

The quilt idea was sketched a little differently on paper. Once I got going though, I started liking the simplicity of the patchwork. These are all various japanese fabrics I either received in swaps, or purchased on Etsy or destashes. I'm addicted to Japanese fabrics right now :).

As for my girl, she was hand drawn on natural linen, and then embroidered. Some are COSMO floss others are DMC floss. 

I really love how this turned out! I wonder what my next project is going to be.. any thoughts?
