Erin Condren Hardbound, STM, planner process review

Last year I discovered the concept of “proper” planning and excitedly purchased my first ever Erin Condren planner, a vertical hardbound edition. However, I found that I was still in a planning rut, as you can see in the first photograph. I’d spent quite a bit on the planner so I wanted it to be visually attractive and user friendly but I didn’t know how to do it. Shortly afterwards, I came across a YouTube of Rachel Blundell talking about  EllieBeth Designs UK stickers and that’s when I had my light bulb moment!

Design Team, Creative spaces, planning area, craft room tour

This week as a Design Team we are sharing our planner spaces with you - from nomad planning to dedicated spaces we all have a different set-up and it works for each of us.  I think most of us dream of a planner room where we can set up our planner systems and work in an area that inspires us and feeds creative thought but in reality a space that works and makes us productive is what we make the best of. Follow our highlighted links for Instagram and YouTube to learn more about us, including new member Tracy Macheta and returning DT member Katie Teage.

Passion Planner - Non-work planning

This is a topic where I am still exploring and experimenting. As a teacher, there are a number of weeks within the year where I am not at work which has always given me a bit of a headache when it comes to planning. Before discovering Passion Planner, I just reverted to one week pages in my bullet journal or no white space spreads in my Erin Condren. However with the Passion Planner this presents more of a challenge given the timelines. In this blog, I am going to share with you a few of the different ways I have tried to plan during non-work periods.
