Hobonichi, Chic Sparrow, Erin Condren rainbow week layouts

It's an exciting week this week - EBDUK is 4 on Saturday!

To celebrate the occasion as a Design Team Linsay, Sophie, Robyn and I are decorating our planners in true EllieBeth Design's fashion with a riot of Rainbows. You'll be able to find us all on Instagram and in the EllieBeth facebook group but we thought it might be fun to showcase our planners together. We have 2 A6 Hobonichi's, a Chic Sparrow personal with daily inserts, B6 WO2P, Erin Condren vertical and a Hobonichi Cousin video from Robyn. That's just the ones we're admitting to now.....

Erin Condren, Chic Sparrow, EllieBeth Designs and so much more

“What does the Planner Community mean to you?”

It appears an easy question on first asking and amongst the initial quick answers you get when you ask this question are Erin Condren, Chic Sparrow, Foxy Fix, EllieBeth Designs UK, stickers, pens, planners and how they all help people to get organised and be more productive. And yes it’s true that being part of this community can help you to achieve your goals and be more productive. But for me it’s been about so much more than pens and paper and ...yes even stickerating!

Goal Planning for the first time

I love the last few days of December. The frenetic activity of Christmas is over and there's a feeling of expectation in the air. A new planner sits waiting to be setup and filled in, sticker sets are chosen and the planning begins.  But one thing still fills me with a sense of unease is goal setting! In recent years a lot of time has been taken up with the day to day running of 2 busy children's schedules and all that school life entails but this year the balance has tipped and there is less for me to fill the extra time with and more time to decide what I want to do going forward.  It's an odd feeling and as I sat down to plan my goals and decide what they might be and how they looked I realised I don't have a system for goal planning for me!
