Hey there everyone!
First of all I’d like to apologize for losing track of keeping up with my blog. =o I’ve been working really hard at youtube and my day to day job aswell. (Yay, I found a job!) But with the new year that just started, I made it one of my many resolutions. ;)
Speaking of the new year! I’ve decided to make a video on how to turn a plain & cheap planner into a more unique and personalised one. This keeping in mind that not anyone can afford a filofax or expensive planner. There’s nothing more fun than experimenting and trying to be a creative planner on a budget!
The planner I chose was a simple planner from ‘HEMA’, one of my favorite stores. It was around 6 euros, so very inexpensive. Then I decided tot transform it! If you wanna see how I did that, watch the video down below! ;)
I hope you enjoyed watching the video! Maybe it gave you some ideas for planning on a budget too! :3 Thanks for watching and supporting me!
Hey there! :D I’m back with a little update! First of all I’d like to thank you all for helping me reach 500 followers on this blog! I never thought I could make it this far! A lot of you have been with me from the very beginning! Thanks for all the support! <3 It means the world to me!
A few days ago I went to a convention with my mother and grandmother called “Country Life” in Ghent. We’d never been there and decided to go and have a look. It was mostly about furniture and decoration, but there was this one cute stationery stand! It was the last year they would be there, as they’re closing up their store! They had some really cute stationery, that I just couldn’t pass by… :p Here are some pictures!
First of all, there was this super cute address book! I just love this kind of vintage look! :D Esecially with the passport & postcard on there! Since I have my own place now, I thought this could come in quite handy. ;)
These, I could NOT ignore! :D I mean look at that cute chubby cheff with his fabulous moustache. How can one pass these by? They’re also super tiny! Honestly I wish I would’ve bought some more! :o
These were the last things I bought at this lovely stand. I thought the memoblock on the left was pretty fun with the “huh?” :D And it just happened to be two for the price of one, so I grabbed the foodie one aswell!
Finding unique stationery like this really makes me very happy. :) I did not expect to find anything at that convention, but was caught by suprise by this cute stand. Too bad they’re closing the store.. well, that concludes this little update! More to come. :D
Hey there !! :D
It’s been a while since I last updated my blog and I sincerely apologize for that! A lot of things have been going on in my life lately, although of course, that’s not an excuse. ;) I guess this blogpost is going to be a bit more personal than I usually write them. For starters, I decided to quit my study at University. For those who didn’t know, I was studying Japanology. There are a lot of reasons for that decision, but the most important one was, that I was unhappy. At this moment I can honestly say, with a smile, that I’ve made the right decision! Following by this event I am looking for a job right now. We’ll see how that goes. :) Another very big development in my life is the fact that I’m no longer living with my parents but have found a little place in Ghent where I now live with my boyfriend, Sascha. He just graduated and is also looking for a job at the moment. Now, that should give you a better overlook of what’s going on in my life. :D
BUT of course, during all of that I did keep making videos (not as frequent). And I plan to make lots more! I also want to update my blog more regularly as I used to. Aside from that I’m starting to add more and more physical things to my etsy shop, wich is very exciting ! Here’s a link in case you’re curious. https://www.etsy.com/nl/shop/JumpyJess
Oh! And here’s a link to my youtubechannel. I did upload a few videos in the last couple of months. ;)
That’s it for this little update! :D So yess, I’m still here and will be making more content! Thanks everyone for supporting me on my blog, youtube, etsy, … It fills my heart with joy! :)
See you soon!
Hey there! :D
It’s been a while since I’ve uploaded a new video. =o This is due to some very big changes coming to my life soon! I might actually vlog about this. :D For now I’ll just leave it as it!
Now about today’s subject! Me and Milli decided to exchange some happy mail, and ofc I made a video with my reaction ! I was very happy with all the goodies she gave me. :D It really puts a smile on my face when I know she carefully put together that happy mail! (Thank you milli! <3)
First of all, here’s the video!
Now for some pictures!
How cute are those stickers? :D You can see them more upclose in the video! She also added some masking stickers and washi tape samples!
Check out this cute Hello Kitty bag! :D
She also added some page flags samples! :3 I especially love the cat ones!
These are some other things she gave me! Cute paperclips and binder clips! :D And I just love that aplaca eraser!
She also added a sweet handwritten letter! :3 I’m so happy !
Ofcourse you can see everything clearer in the video, so check it out if you’re interested! :D I hope you guys enjoy it! :3
That’s it for this update! More to come soon!
Hey there! :D
I’m back with another video! I’ve been very busy lately with my last studentjob. =o and haven’t been able to make as many videos and content as I usually do.. Sorry for that! I do try to get a video out every week! ;)
In the video I have for you this time I show you how I make a paper folder for my Passport sized traveler’s notebook (which is in this case a paperdori). ;) It’s so handy to store stickers, bills, pictures,… :D If you’re interested and want to make on yourself, it’s very easy! ;) First of all, here’s a picture !
Feel free to check out the video here!
That’s it for this update! :D I hope everyone had a nice weekend and a great week! ;)
Before I talk about my new video, it’s time to anounce the winner of my “random clumsy giveaway”! :D The person that is lucky to receive the cards that I accidentally bought double (yep!) is: DOVIE!
Now for the video! :D
Those that follow me on instagram know that I recently got my first midori traveler’s notebook inserts! Which I am super stoked about. Although I love the inserts, the cover is a bit to plain for me. Therfore I decided to personalise them and decorate them to my hearts content! Here’s a picture of how they turned out on the front!
Yess, they are very colorful, just the way I like it! If you’re curious to see how the back looks like, I show you that in the video! Now what is the video about? I know some of you sometimes don’t know how to get started when it comes to decorating inserts, plannerpages,… So I’ve decided to record how I decorated one of these inserts. I talk about the goodies I use following by me decorating the inserts. If you’re curious, here’s the video below! :D
That’s it for this little update! :D I hope you guys enjoy it and had a great weekend!
Hey there! :D
I’m super excited and happy to share with you guys that I made my first “Feltdori” ever & filmed it! Even though I knew it was going to be clumsy (first time afterall) I decided to film it to put it on my youtube channel! ;) I’m very happy with how it turned out and feel like the color of the felt I picked matches well with my personality. :3
Those of you that are following me on instagram know that my “Midori traveler’s notebook inserts” finnaly arrived! :D You’ll be seeing lots of decorations of those on instagram in the future! ;3 More about those inserts later! But yess, so you can tell there has been some changes in my little plannerworld! But I am very happy! :D The biggest change is going from a passportsized dori (paperdori) to a regular size feltdori! But we’ll see how that goes. ;)
For now! Here are some pictures of how the “Feltdori” turned out!
Instead of a charm, this time I added a cute yellow button with white polkadots! :D It definitely represents my love for polkadots doesn’t it? :p
I’m very curious to know what you guys think of my new feltdori? :D Let me know in the comments below!
Now for the video! Here’s a link to the DIY video on how I made it from scratch! If you decide to try it out I wish you good luck! And as always, I would LOVE to see how your feltdori looks like! :3 It’s always fun to see you guys making things from my DIY videos!
I hope you enjoyed watching the video & reading my post! ;) Have a great day!!
Thehe here’s a little update, a bit different from the sort! :D
I actually decided to make a Facebook group for planners, crafters and stationery addicts from Belgium & The Netherlands! :D I have been wanting to do this for a while now! and finnaly did it! The reason for this is that I honestly know close to “nobody” in Belgium with whom I can share my excitement for planners, crafting and stationery.
Oh how I would love to share the joy and excitement when I visit a Hema store for example! :D My dream is for this group to grow and bring people together! :) One day I hope to even organize some planner addicts meets! Drinking some coffee and tea together while sharing our experiences with planners and tales. =)
I’ll just see how this goes! :D
So for the people from Belgium and the Netherlands who want to join, feel free! :D
oh and you can definitely invite others who share the passion! :D
So this was just a small little update! ;)
I hope everyone is having a great week!
Hey there! :D
I’m back with a video! A lot of you know that snailmail has been super populair lately! You see it around on blogs, instagram, pinterest,… One of the fun things about swapping snailmail is the decorating part! Giving your snailmail personality and charm. :) It’s especially fun when you work with a certain theme! That way it can be a creative challenge! :D I decided to make you guys a video where you can see me decorating some snailmail! Of course this is just an example. ;) Be creative, put your personality in it! :D I’m sure it’ll put a smile on the receiver’s face!
Here’s a picture of 3 plain snailmail envelopes that I decorated!
I made a “Superhero” themed one, a “random things” themed one and a “flower” themed one. The one with the flower theme is the one I’ve put together in the video! :) So you can see the process of that! The superhero one, I just HAD to make as an example, since I love them! :D And lately I’ve been collecting some superhero stickers, so yeah. ;) For the envelope with “random things” I used my DIY cat stamp! :D You can see the envelopes more up close in the video! ;)
I hope you all enjoyed the video and blogpost! :D Have fun decorating and swapping snailmail! :3
Hey there! :D
I got another happy mail!, yay! this one’s a little special though. (not that the others aren’t…) My friend and I, whom I met years ago decided to become penpals! She lives in the Netherlands and I live in Belgium, so staying in touch hasn’t been the easiest, so therefore, SNAILMAIL! Yep! I’m very happy to get in touch with her again, especially with this medium! Since we’re both stationery lovers, it’s perfect!
Like I always do I recorded the opening of her lovely happy mail! :D But first, some pictures!
Look at these! :D I absolutely adore those cute suirrel clips and that GIGANTIC strawberry clip! I just love it! Also those cute embellishments! I’m definitely gonna make paper clips out of those little strawberry embellishments!
She gave me a lovely dog keycap! I love the little dog’s expression, it’s funny!^^ Aside from that she included some small deco tape rolls with a dispender! They are so tiny. And then some cute bear pageflags!
I got my first stickerflakes EVER! :D This I am very excited about! And they are Kokeshi dolls! How cute are these? :o I really want to try making my own stickerflakes (working on that) :) Love the teeth stickerflakes too! She also gave me cute flamingo and cat stickers!
Here’s the letter she wrote me! She added a cute sticker and sticky note! Her writing is so pretty. :o The pink pen you see next to the letter is actually an invisible ink pen! When you use the little light you can see what was written down with this pen. (it took me some time to figure out though. :p)
These magnets are just <3 There are so many! I love the whole newspaper theme a lot! :D I already used them on my magnet board of course!
Now for the video: (if you’re curious to see my reaction :D)
Well, that concludes another Happy mail update! For those who are waiting for more planner related videos & posts, don’t worry ! I’m working on those. :D Bye everyone!
