It’s finally here. I was literally on the last page in my previous planner and I NEEDED my new one to arrive. Simply put, I LOVE IT!
I love the signature design this time and couldn’t resist the color and cheerfulness of the mid century circles. But I went with the neutral on the inside, so the contrast of the black tabs with the party of color on the cover is a little mesmerizing to me.
I fell in love with the neutral when I was able to see the new designs at Geaux Wild in New Orleans last May. I loved the idea of having absolute contol of what colors I would use each week and the neutral offered this complete freedom.
My message this year to myself and others is “Do Hard Things”.
It will serve as a constant reminder to myself to keep dreaming and better than that, to do things that will bring me closer to those dreams even if they are scary or hard!
July is off to a busy start and my monthly view will be an overview for bills (those are not on there yet), extended activities, and a quick glance for business related items.
I’ve tried using multiple planners, one for personal, one for finances, and one for business, and it’s just too many things to keep up with. This year, I’m keeping ALL of the information in one place, which means it will always be at the tip of my fingers!
To do this, I’m utilizing the inspirational quote pages and repurposing them as a space for contacts. I am writing the quote on the large flag on the opposite page so I can still be inspired by the words!
I am definitely a lover of the zipper pouch and I’ve placed mine right before the pocket page. I have important stickers, stamps, and address labels as staple items, and other misc things find their way there as well.
Have you seen them up close? Feast your eyes on the cutest sticky notes on the planet!
But then I found “The Classy Planner” on Etsy and her monthly overview stickers were perfection!
This year I don’t want to “plan ahead” with stickers and color choices. I’m looking forward to having a clean slate each week, and while I know my time will be limited, planning is a therapeutic and relaxing activity for me, and it has become one of my all time favorite hobbies!
