My First Etsy Haul


My First Etsy Haul — LittleSurpriseShoppe
Because stickers seemed essential

It’s officially. I’m obsessed with stickers. Blame it on all this planning nonsense I keep buying into 😉 So I finally gave in and made a delightful purchase on Etsy!

I have done plenty of research to get the best bang for my buck for getting into planning. I know that I am going to wait for June 9, the unofficial holy day for planner addicts because of the Erin Condren Life Planner, and see what I think of the new layout. Otherwise, I am planning on getting a Plum Paper Family Planner with PLENTY of add-ons for the same price. I have yet to decide because as much as I love how functional the PPP is, I just can’t get over the ECLP.
Back to the real story– my first Etsy haul. After meticulous searching for stores through YouTube and Pinterest and looking through the stores on Etsy, I happily settled upon the LittleSurpriseShoppe. The rest is HISTORY. They had just enough of my nerdy adorable stickers and floral print to justify my purchase. I happily ordered plenty of my “planning firsts,” like a little book of adorable adhesive notes and floral paperclips. I snagged two sheets of teardrops with mixed floral prints just because they were too adorable, not to mention tons of other floral print shapes and to do lists. A few samplers of washi tape and sheets of My Little Ponies, Totoro and Kikis, and Adventure Time characters later, I wound up with only a $30 purchase, thanks to a fabulous 10% off code provided. Regardless of the 10%, I would have DEFINITELY made this purchase because the sticker sheets were SO inexpensive! I found most sheets cost less than $2!! It is the perfect store to stop by if you are just getting your feet wet in planning.

I cannot wait to use my stickers! I might pop a few in my current PaperSource planner while I wait, but I hope to use most of them in my new planner. Once I make a decision of course…
Do you have any suggestions on which planner I should buy to use my first Etsy haul on? I’d love the advice!

Thanks for sticking around for my first blog post!


welcome to my blog!

Hello, and welcome to Vanilla.Nutmeg.Chic!

I am asking myself the same question — why am I making a blog? The answer is pretty simple. I just want on the bandwagon. I’ll admit it.

I hope to bring about material about my daily life as a college graduate / graduate student. I want to use blogging and the material I provide as my creative outlet in terms of keeping busy. I aspire to create a blog full of ideas on how to stay sane during my journey at audiology school by being creative with some kitschy flair.

Thanks so much!
