Busy Lizzie Plans was created at a time in my life when I needed a project to focus my attention on. Planning reduces the anxiety in my life and provides a creative outlet that I didn't know I needed. I love making beautiful spreads in my planner with stickers and washi tape and pen doodles.
The shop began on Etsy in August 2018 on a folding table set up in the kitchen of our new place in a new city. Since then, we've expanded our capacity with a beefier printer and an extra sticker cutting machine. Oh, and we are officially taking up nearly a quarter of the basement now!
Lizzie, Mr. H and I live in Regina, SK in Canada. Conveniently located in the middle of the country so your happy mail gets to you faster!
As the only one with thumbs, I'm the one who draws, designs, and makes all of the products in the shop. I don't have any kind of design background and though I'm self-taught, I'm constantly learning new ways, techniques and programs. I literally draw every sticker with a pencil and paper (no fancy tablets here!) and scan them before colouring it with a design program.
In addition to the shop, I work full time for the provincial government.
We adopted Lizzie from the SPCA in 2015 when she was 10 months old. She is a husky/corgi cross who was found living in a garbage dump in a northern community here in Saskatchewan.
Lizzie is a pretty girl and she knows it, but she's also the biggest dork you've ever met. Follow us on Instagram to see what Lizzie's up to.
