This week just flew by! Maybe because this week started on Tuesday (because of Memorial day on Monday), but I’m not complaining! It’s nice to have a 3-day weekend every now and then. Even if it makes you look like a crazy person the next week because you’re off by a day and keep thinking it’s Thursday when it’s really Friday!
Can it be? A new post from Organized Potato? And a freebie, no less?! 💖 It seems like forever since I last posted… oh wait, it has been forever. I think I only made one post here last month… and it was just a free printable. No planner spreads, no Washi Wednesday posts… 😭 Where did January go?! 💔
Did you guys know that the Winter Solstice was yesterday? Wanna know why I’m so excited about it? Because the winter solstice marks the shortest day of the year. After that day, the hours of daily sunlight begin to slowly increase! ☀
I’ve been counting down until the Winter Solstice for a little over a month now. My least favorite thing about winter is how short the days are. It’s the absolute WORST when you wake up and leave to go to work/school/etc. and it’s still dark out… aaaand then it’s dark by the time you leave to come home! It’s like you missed an entire day!
I tend to feel a little gloomier during the winter months. Probably because it gets dark so early, and it’s so cold nobody wants to go anywhere or do anything. I mean… I don’t blame you guys. All I want to do is stay home, snuggled in bed. Which brings me to this week’s printable…
How is October almost already over?! Where did it go?! At any rate, fall is most definitely in the air. The days are getting shorter, the temperature is dropping… well, not exactly here in Southern California. It’s been just about 100 degrees this past week! 😱 I am SO ready for colder weather! Come on Fall, any time now!!! 🍁🍂🍁🍂
Well, I guess I can just pretend it’s getting cooler, and nothing helps more than this warm and cozy color scheme in this week’s free printable. 😍 I even snuck a little bit of Hello Kitty and Molang in there. I just couldn’t help it! Everything is better with a little touch of kawaii! 😍💖
I feel so stupid about today’s challenge. I use sticky notes A LOT. So I buy a lot of them. I like to buy cute ones. But sometimes, I know that they’ll only be available for a limited time, and I don’t want to run out because I love them so much. so, I just hoard them.

Honestly, this printable makes me crave strawberry ice cream. Like the good stuff. With chunks of real strawberries in it. And of course with rainbow sprinkles on top!! (♡‿♡)✧°･* This printable was inspired by the little popsicle drawing already in the corner of my Happy Planner!
I’m so in love with how this printable turned out! I know I feel like I say that for EVERY printable, but I really do love the printables I make (why would I make ones I hated? 😂). Plus, I found a way to sneak Molang into this printable! 💖
Hello, everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely Memorial Day weekend with their family! ❤ Sorry I’m a bit late to share this week’s spread with you all, I was spending the weekend with my family! My boyfriend and I decided to fly back home to Chicago to surprise our families… I’m so glad we did! It was so hard to keep this secret from my family, but it was totally worth it!
One of my favorite parts about this weekend was that my mom and my brother’s girlfriend, helped me to set up and take my #beforethepen pictures this week! They both got totally into it, and we all had a blast. Even my dad got involved! Stay tuned for a “behind-the-scenes: planner photoshoot” blog post! But for now, here’s what this week looks like!
Remember those shaker clips I made for the planner meetup I attended? At first, I didn’t like them (can you believe it?!) But they’ve since grown on me, and now I kind of really love them! 💖 I had a couple left over from the meetup, and they matched PERFECTLY with this week’s theme! Aren’t they just the cutest?
The fresh flower was my mom’s idea! She has the loveliest garden– I’m so jealous! After visiting home, I realized what my garden was missing: flowers! I have mostly succulents and leafy tropical plants. Sure, they can all flower, but I don’t have any plants that are grown JUST for their flowers. Guess I have another excuse to visit the local plant nursery… 🌸🌺

I’m not sure if there’s anything more exciting than using a printable/planner kit you made yourself. This week, I used my Sakura printable, and I just love how it turned out! I know I’m a little late and cherry blossom season is pretty much over, but I can still enjoy the soft colors and cute floral patterns this week in my planner! 🌸
