Hi everyone! I’m so thrilled to say that last Monday, on the 16th of November 2015, this blog turned 6 months old and I wanted to share this happy moment with you all! Quite honestly, it seems like I just passed the three month mark but somehow, these past few months have really flown by. Last time, I created a few social media accounts – such as my Facebook Page and a new Instagram account specifically for my blog. Now that we’re at the 6 month stage, I wanted to do a quick update on what I’ve gotten up to in these past three months – as well as use this opportunity to talk about an upcoming giveaway that I’m really excited to do!
Firstly, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been a part of my blog. I am so grateful to have your support and a special thank you to those of you who read & share or comment on my posts. It’s those small moments that makes me carry on blogging! So I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you – you are absolutely amazing!
Since I created my Facebook page and Instagram last time, perhaps I should start by saying a huge thank you to all of those that have followed me! I’m so honoured to have recently reached 100 followers on both of those channels (well actually, over 150 now on Instagram)! I would love to hear what you would like to see on my other social media accounts – or on my blog, for that matter – so please do let me know if there is anything I’m missing! I created those other pages to give you all a chance to find out more about me and what I get up to outside of these weekly blog posts. It also allows you to message me and interact with me, if you want to do so (and I would love to get to know you all a bit more so please do message me!).
In the past three months, I have also written my first Guest Post – which you can read over at the Pocket Notebooks blog. It’s a question style interview post that will allow you to find out a little bit more about me. They have also posted similar guest posts with other stationery bloggers or addicts so be sure to check those out too, if you want to find out about them. Huge thank you shout out to Tony and Pocket Notebooks for asking me to get involved with their guest post series!
And lastly, I have some more good news to share with you all. I have achieved one of the goals that I set for myself and this was to join a planner or design team for a company that I support. So I am really honoured to have been chosen join Plannermania’s Planner Team, alongside 6 other lovely ladies. I am so excited to be a part of such a great team, full of amazing planner girls! To find out more about the rest of the team you can click the image to get their Instagram details. Big thank you to Shanni and Plannermania for taking me on board and I look forward to working with you in the coming months! So what exactly is this team that I’m on? Well…
Plannermania is an Etsy store owned by Shanni and it’s full of amazing goodies for you planner. She sells everything from handmade stickers to dashboards. I recently received my first package of items from Shanni so I thought I would share this good news with you as well as show some of the goodies that I got! I am just so thrilled to be able to be a part of this team and will definitely be sharing more of the goodies – as well as how I use them – as time goes on. If you are interested in seeing what I do with the items then have a look at my Instagram account as it will be shared on there. (Also, hint: Plannermania’s Thanksgiving/ Black Friday Sales starts on 23rd November and runs until the end of the month! Now is the best time to grab some items that catch your eye!)
This was only possible because of all of your support. You all read my posts, share them, comment and inspire me to continue – so thank you so much.
As a thank you for all of your support these last six months, I’ll be doing a giveaway that I hope to have set up by next week. It will be hosted over on my Facebook Page so be sure to like the page so you don’t miss out! Unfortunately, not all of the items that I have ordered have arrived yet so I can’t start the giveaway today. However, I will be including two prizes so there are two chances to win! In the spirit of the festive season, one prize will be a Christmas Bundle. However, as not everyone celebrates Christmas, I wanted the second prize to be a general Stationery Addict Bundle so that there was something for everyone! Once the final items arrive, I’ll set up the Giveaway – if you are interested in winning one of the bundles then be sure to check out the giveaway when it’s up. That’s all from me today, I’ll be back shortly with the giveaway and some reviews! See you soon!
