Here's my planner::
I like the looks of it inside, but it's way plain for my tastes on the outside. I thought I might get some kind of scrapbooking sticker to decorate the front, but then I was in a big hurry and didn't have time to really search.
I grabbed a bunch of sparkly ones because with the swirly and lace, I figured maybe there was something I could do with it. In the end, I'm not actually in love with it. But little rhinestones like that will fall off left and right so I figure I'll just recover it in a few weeks anyway and maybe by then I'll have a better idea.
Howeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeever.... The inside rocks, I think! I got a few handy mini materials so I don't have to dig around in my bag for something to write with.
Because I had already spent a lot of money on supplies (that colored pencil set was 9$! As much as the planner was in the first place!) I didn't want to spend more money on fancy mounting supplies. I was trying to think of a low cost, fast way to to it without just tucking them in there all loose but that wouldn't be permanent. I found some Command Strips in the closet and thought, well, why the hell not?
Without any idea how to mount tiny pencils, I tried a piece of sticky putty like you can use to attach posters or whatnot to the walls and made a thick pad to bury the pencils in. Putting something sticky on top of something sticky felt a little Xzibit too, so that was fun. : D The pencils hold well, but you can still peel them out without residue and without the putty losing shape.
I LOVE the tiny pencil sharpener and eraser in the pencil set! I'm sure the tiny pencils will fit in the sharpener too. n...n And little llama post its. XD Rad. Although you maybe can't see, the little black pencils have a bright green Swarovski crystal on the end where an eraser might normally go. NAICE.
I just love all the tiny sized, super convenient stuff. And the fact that I didn't have to sew cases or pockets when I really wasn't in the mood is the best part. It was probably the quickest customization I've ever done. I'll either have to find a place to attach an ID and debit or sew a little wristlet bag to dump the scheduler in. Something like that.
On a side note, when my sister is in town, she takes the lead on dressing Flora.
I think it's a nice one. : D
And here's my sis. I think you can see the style inspiration. n...n
I have been collecting some little bits of things to make a bird cage with. I think it'll be my next project.
