Planner Girls Collective: Planner Meets – Pamper, Plan and Create 2018

Hey Everyone and welcome to another Planner Girls Collective post.

This week we have all picked our own topic and today I will be talking about planner meet-up’s, particularly Pamper, Plan and Create (PPC) which I was lucky enough to go to earlier this month.

PPC is organised by three beautiful ladies. Michelle Mills of Ugly Bug Plans, Leanne Snowball of The Geeky Planner and Kelly Bendelow of HazyDaysUK. The first PPC was last year (2017) and was in Newcastle. Unfortunely I couldn’t make that.

PPC was originally set up to provide a relaxing environment for people to get together and share a love for all things stationery. Set to be in the North of England to give those who couldn’t attend southern meet-up’s a chance to partake.

I got really lucky this year and my beautiful friend Debbie purchased a day ticket for me. The tickets are sold either as a day ticket or a weekend ticket which includes an overnight stay and meals.

I was really looking forward to going. I was 50% nervous and 50% excited. I was worried I wouldn’t make it due to either my illness or the horrendous snow that showed up the week of the event. However, I managed to make it and last the day.

I had an amazing time. I got to meet some amazing people and what’s more, I didn’t feel out of place for my hobby. I felt at home.

The day was so relaxed and easy going. Kelly held a travelling workshop on Brush Lettering which I loved and has helped a lot. There were stalls from shop owners which I got to meet and browse.

We also got the most fantastic goodie bags which were little craft totes. They were full of freebies and discount codes. We even got Erin Condren items and a gift certificate for a full price planner from Personal-Planner.

The best thing though…the table I was sat with. Table 3 was fantastic, what an amazing bunch of ladies I got lucky sitting with.

Honestly if anyone ever has doubts about attending a meet, don’t, you will really enjoy it. I’m going to save to attend PPC again next year as I really loved the atmosphere the girls worked so hard on achieving. All in all it was a massive success in my eyes.

Now here are some pictures:)

Planner Girls Collective: 2018 Goals 

Hello 2018!

Today’s Planner Girls Collective is focusing on our 2018 goals.

2017 was a big year for me. I took on so much and really advanced myself in ways I hadn’t predicted. It was also a difficult year as my health took a nose dive and I was diagnosed with a condition which will continue to effect me. This been said I have thought really hard about what I want to achieve in 2018 and where I want my focus to lay.

My words and focus of the year are Balance and Health.

My goals as you can see below are quite broad but encompass all aspects of my life.

I hope that 2018 will be the year for me to settle into my life with all the changes that came in 2017.

I wish all my viewers, friends and family have an amazing 2018.

Feel free to share with us what your aspirations are for the new year and don’t forget to visit the other ladies in the PGC.
