Some Cocoa Daisy Love

In preparing for my planner workshop, I contacted Cocoa Daisy and received a typical monthly planner box to show what a subscription box would look like.  I chose them because I had seen some unboxings of their products by Miss Vicky Bee

Although I am not a 'pretty planner', I really loved the look and feel of their product, so much so, I subscribed to their Facebook page so I could follow along.  And thus, I was able to enter a giveaway by someone who works there and had tons of stuff left over from previous years.

A bit of a disclaimer.  The box I 'won' was for scrapbooking.  I am not a scrapbooker, but I can still use most of what I received in my planner.  Plus, Texter has her eye on some of the stuff.


So what do you do when you can't sleep at 2 a.m?  You get up and sort through the box.


Tons of little envelopes filled with buttons and stickers and 'stuff'!  Some awesome goodness.  Or as Lady K would say - "a-door-able".


And this doesn't include the huge stack of scrapbook papers, almost all of which is double sided.  I can see some journal making in my future!  

So two hours later (and two cups of coffee later), I had sorted and touched all the little goodies in the box, separating things into like groups.  I have to tell myself to use them and not save them for something 'special' or they will never get used.

I can see 2017 will be a bit more 'colorful'!

  1. I think I must be the biggest procrastinator in the world because I do leave things for to use when the cuteness factor comes into play so I wait to use something so I totally agree with what you said about that . Looks like you had fun going through the box kudos to you and lots of color I hope to see from you in 2017.
