This week the CPT are taking a look at the age old debate of 'Functional v Pretty' when it relates to planning. Take a read and then head on over to the EBDUK Facebook group and let us know how you balance 'Functional v Pretty'.
I can be a little bit hit and miss with my monthly and notes pages. Recently I've seen some fantastic ideas and examples of what others are doing with theirs. It got me thinking about how I have used mine in the past year and how I want to continue using them. You never know it could inspire others to create new spreads in their planners.
It's that time of year again.... planner itch season! We all know it, we've all experienced it. There are a few short weeks left before 2022 is with us and it's time to start thinking, if you haven't already, about what planner to use for next year.
To help start the choice process I wanted to use something different from my normal planners for this week. So I went to my stack.... yes I said stack....of planners and pulled out a couple that I haven't visited for a while. They're very different from my normal style and I hope that using something different will give me
Do you ever just get mind block, you have all these lovely stickers and supplies but don’t know where to start. Well that’s me this week I have so many ideas in my head but when I go to create they have gone, just disappeared.
So here I am with my life planner in front of me, the sticker collection I want to use, all I need now is the inspiration.
I was always taught to look on the positive side of things, kind of philosophy of 'if life gives you lemons, make lemonade'. But I’ve learned to be super flexible too. I started gathering resources whilst my children deschooled from main stream schools and I used Penguin Joe and decorative pages from past collections to brighten up my planner, and the long lists of resources.
We all have different planners and most of them have a variety of notes pages. For me though, they all had one thing in common - they were hardly ever used. I like my planner to feel used, so it was really annoying that there were these chunks of my planner that were blank and empty.
