New Year’s special!: Transforming a cheap plain planner into a unique one!

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!

See you!

Long time no see! UPDATES!

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.Β 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!

DIY Snailmail envelope decorating!

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!

IMG_1149
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

Bye!
