Buddy the Elf Planner Stickers

Hello there, readers! 

I have a confession. I'm a bit addicted to planners. I have mentioned this before. I have even done blog posts on creating my own planner.

Thankfully, I have discovered a couple of great planners that work for me. I use a
Passion Planner for school. I use a MAMBI Happy Planner for home and as a memory book. You can see how I use them on my Instagram page (along with cute pictures of my girls and my dog).

Earlier this year, I bought myself a Silhouette Portrait cutting machine. My sole purpose of buying one was to create my own stickers for my planner. While I love the Etsy Shops I use for stickers, owned by ladies who have become real-life friends, I was spending way too much money on them! I am all for supporting small businesses, but I had a problem. 

So here is one of my sticker sets I've made. I've made a couple others with different themes, including Care Bears, but this one was a hit when I shared it with planner groups online.
Use the link at the bottom of the post to download!

I have created this as a free download. It is for personal use only. If you would like to share it with your friends, please send them to my blog so they can download it themselves. They are designed for The Happy Planner, so they are a little taller than Erin Condren boxes. One user trimmed the To-Do boxes and turned the extra piece into a flag. The possibilities are endless. 

If you use Instagram, please tag me in your picture! I would love to see how you have used it!

Here is how it looks in my planner. I goofed and forgot the headers above the full boxes. Thankfully, I had Christmas Washi to fix the mistake. I am off work the week of Christmas, anyway, so I don't foresee a large amount of things scheduled.

Whirlwind Year

I can't believe it's been almost a year since my last post. This year has flown by, and it's been insane.

Summer 2015 started with Big Sis leaving to go live with her dad. She started her freshman year without me, but seemed to have fun and she made some new friends and got to enjoy living in the Bay Area.

School started in August 2015 with Little Sis starting middle school as a 6th grader. I continued to work at her school (previously Big Sis' school) as an instructional aide. I also went back to school to finish my Associates in Social and Behavioral Science. My goal is to transfer to CSU San Marcos for my bachelor's and my teaching credential.

The school year flew by, and the next thing I knew, Big Sis was set to move back home. The deal was that she would spend the whole year up there, but she had to keep her grades up. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to keep her Biology grade up to standard - she never has been good at the hard sciences.

On my trip to pick her up, I met up with a friend and we both decided it was time to start eating better and getting active. On June 29, I officially started my weight loss journey. I've been tracking my food consistently since then (well, technically, since before then), and in the process, I have lost 16 pounds.

In August, I decided to get my body fat measured and received some tips on how to manage my macros - protein, fat, and carbohydrates. I am still working on how to fit in the foods I like to eat into my numbers, but I am getting there.

I am hoping to use this blog now as a way to focus my efforts, share and receive some helpful tips, and keep a running record of my progress.

Here is one of my NSV. I was shocked when I saw the difference!
