Can you believe it is almost Christmas! This time of year in our house is by far the busiest! Not only do we have the typical hustle and bustle because of the holidays, but two of my boys have birthdays a week apart and my son’s basketball season is in full swing. To help keep me organized and on top of things I have to have a functioning planner. I use two planners. One is a TN I carry with me that doubles as a wallet and the other is a Happy Planner that sits on my desk. The Happy Planner has the monthly overview as well as everything related to family life and my work. I did a walk thru of my planners for you.
I have desperately missed my Happy Planner. It is the first planner I ever used and old habits die hard. I have enjoyed my TN, but I have noticed that I pretty much just make it cute and don’t utilize it like the Happy Planner. So, for the month of November I am going back to my first planner love — the Happy Planner! I do plan to use my TNs for another form of planning, just not my everyday family life.
The October 2017 The Planner Society kit is GORGEOUS. I used it to set up my planner.
Here is a tutorial on how to make page flags and a walk through of the planner:
One thing I have been hoarding is a cute little shaker card I made at the Summer Creativation show in July using the new Tim Holtz die! I had the perfect spot in my planner for it. After all, October is Halloween! Super excited I get to enjoy this little shaker all month!
I really have to think about how I want to set my planner up every month because my needs change depending on the time of year. I actually struggled setting up this month. I don’t know why. Once I got it done I was pretty pleased with it.
Hello Friends! It is that time of month again in which we start to think about what is to come in the near future. Time to set up our planners! I have been in a state of confusion lately regarding my planner. My home life is full and my career has taken on a new chapter. I also have stepped away from the Happy Planner because I can not take it with me — I really need something portable. I have experimented with a couple different set ups. For the month of August I have decided to use two TN planners — one for home and one for work. The best part is they are both easy to grab and go.
I set up my home planner for August with the June Planner Society Kit last month. So, I used the August kit to set up my work planner. I put together a video of the process. You can click HERE to watch it.
