Time is a precious commodity and it's easy to let it run away from us. I'm trying to make sure that I have time to plan in the things I really want to do amongst those things I have to do. It's really been helping to have monthly, weekly and daily layout views so that I can see the bigger picture and then be able to allocate time on a daily basis for what's important. Here's how I'm using each layout to help me do that.
As well as producing wonderful stickers EllieBeth Designs makes a wonderful Creative pack. Each month there is a 'Throw Back Thursday' with a vintage collection being re-released along with a creative pack to match. They are available from the Thursday's release until the end of Sunday and are a fabulous addition to any crafter and stickerator's stash.
If you are ever tempted to buy one but don't quite know what to do with it here are some ideas.
As planners we are all about the visuals. February 2021 is the perfect month for this, starting on a Monday and ending on a Sunday. So with a Monday start calendar, four complete weeks, no overhang, no switching between monthly tabs in my planners…..and I love it!
I decided to celebrate this wonderful visual……… by choosing the beautiful ‘Meadow’ collection for my Hobonichi monthly layout, 2 weeks of its weekly layouts and the first week of February in my Erin Condren vertical layout.
With the latest releases, we were all treated to a revised format for the collections. I went a little bit sticker mad and bought most of them to try out in different ways and in different planners. I’ve set up three monthly spreads, three monthly tracking pages and two weekly spreads. I’ve had a lot of fun stickerating and thought I would share my five favourite things about the changes and how I’ve used them.
At the beginning of a new school year, my new work planner naturally makes my mind wander to thoughts of a new personal planner in a few short months. So many of us are thinking hard about what we want in a planner for 2021 and someveryorganised planner people have already purchased theirs (if you are one of these people, I salute you!)
This is a time of potential, possibility and positivity as a planner person (say that three times quickly!) and it has prompted me to sit and have a think about why we plan in the first place. Therefore, in the style of a chart countdown, ‘from’ Top of the Pops from the olden days, I give you, the top five reasons I plan.
