Good morning, everyone. I’m Nikki from Plans Creatively. This is my blog, my brand, and my life. Formally once known as – xoxPlannerisms, I switched the name, ditched the logo, and re-branded the entire style.
It was a lot of work but I am worthy of putting forth that much effort into something I absolutely love to do. Plans Creatively is all about that – planning creatively, but still functionally, and sometimes decoratively. Whether your plan in a Happy Planner like me, or any type of planner. You’ll be able to find something here that could help you.
However, this site isn’t going to be strictly talks about planners. Plans Creatively will also include information and posts about home, decor, budgeting, and more.
Planning creatively isn’t just about planning by using stickers, but, planning your life in a creative, functional way!
About the Owner
So, a little about me first. You can read more about me here as well. I am Nikki, although my first name is actually Nikkole. I’m in my early thirties. My loving husband, Mike who I have been with for over 15 years now. Also, our two boys, N and M. They’re both older than ten. A tween and teen, and they keep me on my toes! They are my life, though. But, that goes without being said, doesn’t it?
I have been into planners and writing down my tasks and ideas since I was in grade school. The second I reached 5th grade and we were given assignment notebooks – well, it was all over from there. Ha-ha. I entered the planner community in the early 2013, 2014’s and realized that it wasn’t that large at the time. I had other priorities and although I had some ideas, they never took off.
In 2018, I stepped foot into Joann Fabrics for the first time in years and to my surprise there was an entire array of planner supplies available for purchase. To much of my surprise included a hard hit on the pocket book. I started buying like crazy.
FOMO is a real thing, people! ‘Fear of missing out’ was so real for me in the beginning. There was a new release, and everyone went crazy, so I had to too, right? Well, I did. I went crazy like the rest of them, buying up everything without really paying attention to the fact that, things are going to continue to come out. There will be more releases, more products, etc.
Soon enough, I became more mindful of the situation and of my spending. While I am not on a complete, NO SPEND for planner supplies, I did make some investments for myself, my business, and my future in the planner community.
More About the Brand
This is all going to be told in my journey through this blog and my social media outlets. I want to share with you guys the truth behind some of the dark and ugly things in the planner community, but also some of the best things that ever happened in my life, as well!
So, enough about me, and my history… why not take a look around. You can check out my Etsy Shop, where I sell mostly printable goods for your planner. Someday, I hope to work full time making physical products for everyone – but that someday will have to come at the price of quitting my full time, 9-5 job. Also, you can learn a lot about me, my style, and my passion for my Instagram page. Facebook is another resource I use often to post a lot of my IG posts, giveaways, and more!
You can find me on Youtube making some planner videos and some how-to videos for the Cricut and my printable stickers.
Thanks for stopping by and welcome to the brand new, Plans Creatively!
