New hobby: Kawaii planning

I finally gave in to a new hobby which is kawaii planning (or creative planning) just this August. And today, I'd like to share with you my spreads and my progresses so far. :)

My current planner is actually one of my stocks at Crescent Kiss, a kawaii lifestyle shop I just opened recently. The shop carries novelty items, collectibles, accessories for home and stationery. I'm pretty low in stocks atm but please do check out the page and you might find something you would like! I named the shop after my daughter, Beau Crescent and my dog, Kisses. :)

Here is my first ever spread for August. Ew! Noob levels I don't know what to do really so I kinda went sticker crazy lololol. It was my birthday month and Dorotee Sweetlips' anniversary month hence the cakes and sweets avalanche.

My September spreads are now divided per week so I decided to create a weekly theme this time. Forgot to take a photo of the first week so here is second to fourth week spreads. Cats, Rilakkuma and Wonderland themes~

I also find journaling interesting. Thanks to Rainbowholic for inspiring me. But with how busy I am juggling mommy duties + multiple micro businesses + self-branding, I don't think I can commit to a daily journal yet so I decided to make a monthly recap instead where I document the month's highlights and victories to remember. The thought of reading through my spreads a couple of years from now is exciting!

Here's my highlights for September! It's really important to write down every small details of our lives because it's nice and healthy to remember. While blogging or micro-blogging on instagram or any social media can do the job, there's something with journaling that makes it extra spiritual and personal. This would be a great mommy and daughter activity! I can't wait for Beau to be old enough so we can planner/journal together.

October week 1 theme is lolita and week 3 is Totoro. I skipped (actually forgot lol) week 2 due to idk sometimes life just happens eh. hahaha.

The cats stickers from the the first pic is available at Tea Pawty. Plugging because proceeds goes to building a shelter for stray domestic animals!

Welcome to my desk. I don't always work here (sometimes on our fugly dining table or on the floor lol) but please appreciate the set-up hehehe.

Totoro ice cream sticker by Little Miss Paintbrush. Totoro pen from Crescent Kiss. Cat pen from Light in the Box. Love them~

Kawaii planning + coffee = zen.

 And here's my cover spread. Sorta not yet done though. It's my painting of me and Beau + my few other paintings I made into stickers.

So far so good. What a great way to organize my forever busy life but in a "kawaii"way. It's helpful because instead of feeling overwhelmed with my daily tasks and workloads, it brightens my mood and help me feel motivated and happy because that's how kawaii lifestyle should work!
