If you think you're going to see pretty little stickers in this post, you'd be disappointed. It's because I'm not going to write about how I use stickers but about how I don't use them.
I tried, I really did! I was inspired by how so many of you use stickers to make your pages colorful. I had the Filofax-brand stickers. I had colorful index labels from Etsy. I had washi tape. I had whole sheets of sticker cute-ness.
But I never bothered to use them. The Filofax brand ones were tiny and didn't really stand out from the page. It was a bother, at least to me, to choose a sticker, stick it on the page, write around it (if it's on the diary), etc., etc. I was also sometimes distracted by them on my diary pages which to me are more functional than decorative. Color-coding already gives me some color.
I sometimes doodle the weather on the pages, but even then, I've never been able to keep it up for any length of time.
I've been using the Dodopad Diary for a while now, and maybe that's why. There really is no need for any more embellishments because the pages are pretty enough as they are. (And which is maybe one of the reasons why I like the Dodopad.) For 2013 though, I'm using the Cotton Cream with the days divided into To-dos and Appointments, and I know I'm not going to use stickers this year either.
Is there something wrong with me? Why is everyone else creative with their pages? I feel left out and different ): I know I shouldn't, but I do.
Oh well . . . !
