One Year in the Making

Well, ladies and gentleman, has been here for almost one year. I created the URL, blog, shop, and all the social media pages including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter on the same day. That day was December 03, 2019. 

Counting down the days until the one year anniversary of xoxPlannerisms, I thought I’d share with you a little bit of my humbled experiences as a shop owner and boss babe. 

Now, it hasn’t been easy, by any means, but it has been very fullfilling work. My success doesn’t go unrecognized any day of the week. I am humbled and grateful for every like, comment, share, and purchase on my shop. I am forever grateful of all the love and support I’ve gotten, as well. Also, I am doing a little happy dance every time I get a notification of any sort! 

So, where has xoxPlannerisms come in the past year? 

Growth of xoxplannerisms in 10 months time
This was the growth of xoxPlannerisms Etsy Shop in ten months. Words cannot express how absolutely grateful I am for each and every visitor that even comes and takes a look!

Since the beginning of the year, I have had some milestones and each one has been appreciated and celebrated in its own way! 

I hit my 40th sale on Etsy on 08-18-2019.

Did you know, every time you make a purchase from a small business owner, an actual person does a happy dance!? 

And then, on 11-08-2019, just three months later, I hit my 150th sale milestone!

Words cannot express how much this meant to me! Honestly, I cannot say


enough to express the gratitude I have for each and every purchase, view, like, comment, share, and amount of support I have received. 

One Year in the Making

So, what would have been one of the first pictures I took with my brand in mind? Let’s take a look!?

my very first Happy Planner that I couldn't be more proud of
This was my very first Happy Planner. I decked it out with expander rose gold discs and absolutely loved everything about it. This is what got me started on my dreams to become a reality from this moment.

xoxPlannerisms was always something I had in mind for years. In fact, Plannerisms has been a thought of mine since early 2014. 

the OG - original plannerisms thought and idea I had came up with back in 2014

I had the URL, I had the blog. I had the idea. I didn’t have the resources or the time. I had a lot of missing, key elements to make it work. However, the idea never went away, and the dream has always been there. I have considered re-creating Plannerisms since then again and again. It was never the right time! 

However, what better time than to start right now!

I truly believe in the quote that states: 

“In one year from now, you would have wish you started today.”

And one year from last, I am so happy I did. 

So, what are you waiting for? Begin your dreams today. Because one year from now, you’re going to wish you had already started. Because in one year, you have no idea how great things can grow! 

Thank you all for the love and support. Here is to many more years together, and many more celebrations and milestones to share with you all!
