Last Saturday, I went to my first ever planner meetup at Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons. Chinky posted in The Philippine Planning Society that they will be hosting a mini meet on March 19 at Maker’s Market bazaar held at Commons. I had to go! For one, the meet up venue was near our place and two, I’m really really excited to meet other planner sisters. Before joining planner groups in FB, I thought I was the only one who is into “creative planning” and crafting. Thankfully I stumbled upon a couple of planner groups. Rej also added me in Journals and planner Enthusiasts Philippines. My life (and wallet, I might say) was never the same again. So much creativity flowing in my feeds because of them! <3 Love you guys!
Come March 19, the day of the meet up. The allotted time given by the organizers for us was 1-5PM. I arrived some time around 3PM because I did some errands first. Before meeting the girls, I went around the bazaar and checked some of the sellers there. It was heaven! <3 All of the booths are selling handmade items and most of them are IG sellers that I follow. If I hadn’t exceeded my shopping budget for that week because of my Lasting Impressions haul, I would’ve splurged a little more at the bazaar. After checking the shops out, I decided to go and meet the girls! <3
After introducing myself, I sat at the table and chatted to some of the girls I was sitting beside. I asked where they’re from, etc etc. After some time, I decided to join the stamp buffet and stamp away!
My view at our table. Chinky and Jujet in the middle, Ann and Joan on the left. the hand on the lower left belongs to Kristine, I think. 🙂
My favorite peg would have to be Chinky. (@lionachinky on IG) She makes incredible planner layouts you should check her out! The photo below shows the master at work last Saturday. 🙂
Ms Juliet (@iamjujet on IG) took this snap while I was coloring the little monster from one of the stamps at the stamp buffet. Thank you for the candid shot Ms. Juliet! <3
Our planner tower. So much awesomeness in one pic. Can you spot my websters Pages in light teal and my happy planner from the stack below?
Of course, no meet up will be complete without pictures!
Can you spot my large purple duffel? I didn’t know what to expect and bring in the planner meet that I decided to bring half of my collections.
We dropped by Planners and Journals and Craftee Dandee’s booth after our stamping sessions. I bought some doilies from Dandee and planner inserts from PnJ.

I got a little too overwhelmed by the number of stamps at the stamp buffet that I did not know what theme I was going to do on my planner. Thankfully, I brought my Daler Rowney watercolor notebook I got from SG and used it as a stamp swatches notebook. The unicorns turned out mighty fine! My favorite is the purple one. What’s yours?
Situation today: coloring the stamp samples I got from yesterday’s meetup! I was a little overwhelmed by the number of stamps at the stamp buffet that I did not know what theme I was going to do with my planner so I used my watercolor notebook from @daler_rowney instead and stamp away! I think I went overboard with the unicorns, right? Haha! @lovecynthia stamps are sooo cute!

All in all, I had so much fun! I wish we had more time to bond and do planner stuff. Looking forward to more planner meets in the near future. 🙂 The Philippine Planning Society is cooking up another mini meetup on April and a planner party on May. I’m definitely going to be there if my schedule permits! See you soon, planner sisters! <3
