Little Craft Place | The Goodies!!!

Today's post is about the goodies I purchased at the Little Craft Place last week. If you haven't already seen it, click here to see my post with alllll the pictures!! It's a paper lovers dream and it's so close to my casa!

Let's start with the washi tape. I love washi tape. It can be used in so many different ways and not just on paper but folks are using them on their computer keyboards, the inside of a lampshade, decoration on the wall, and even on their bikes. Some folks have killer collections of washi tape, like drawers and boxes full of them. Places like the Little Craft Place have a wall dedicated to washi tape. Honestly, I don't know how many places have a wall like they do but I did a little happy dance when I saw it. There may have been a few tears, too. Haha! As much as I love washi tape, I don't use it as much as I'd like. #dontjudgeme So it sits all pretty-like on my desk until I think I've found the right time to use it 😂 which half the time ends up with me saying no don't use it or it'll run out. This is how a lot of paper heads end up with tons of supplies, haha!

Check out this video Bre took for the Paper Files Instagram page.

Friendly bear sticky notes and it's blue? Yes, I'll take that! Small enough to fit in my pen bag, too! Oh, and I got that blue pen, too. I like gel pens a lot but I smear my writing so I stick to ball point.

Because fruit and they're mini clips! 
There a ton of different colored and themed clips
at one of the end caps in the back of the store.

Drawing a Bujo calendar is not easy. I did it once and my hand got really tired towards the last four months. Yeah, sloppy numbers is what I ended up with. So I'm okay with stickers that have all the work done for me, haha! The clear stickers work well with Bujo spreads as well as scrapbooking.

Traveler's journals have been on my mind for a while now. It's basically a planner but it can hold multiple journals. I could use one journal for my blog, another for my personal life, and maybe another for work. These journals are typically leather with a clasp. Sometimes they have a spot for a pen or two and a pocket. Some have a zippered pocket on the back like the one I bought.

The traveler's journal I bought is by Prima Marketing (affiliate) and it's glorious! There were a few on the shelf but none in a color I liked so I asked Ian if by any chance he had more in the back. When he came out with this one, I immediately said yes! Just look at the picture above. I could put four journals in here. Four, y'all!!

The idea to start Bujo-ing in this has crossed my mind but I don't want to abandon the journal I've already started. I'm staying firm on finishing the journal I'm currently in until the very end!

Two journals were included, a black one and a gray one but neither are lined or dotted. I knew I had some ruled journals at home that would fit in here so I went ahead and bought a weekly journal. You can add the month and the date on them.

I like ducks and sticky notes. I also like the way they hook up to the back of my journal for my convenience.  I've been using them a lot inside my journal because I can't bring myself to use them as a bookmark.  I don't want the duckies edges to get hurt LOL!
