I had a really hard time trying to decide what type of planner I wanted for 2015.
I knew it had to be pretty, functional and have lots of room for doodling or maybe day dreaming.
I've had tons of different Franklin planners since the early 90's. This time, I went for something I could make all my own and do a little journaling and paper crafting inside. I think that a "To Do List", just looks prettier with stickers and washi tape. I also like to tell myself that if it's "pretty", I may get more done.
I went with the Lilac personal size kikki.K planner. It really caught my eye and of course because it was on sale was even better. I've always been a sucker for purple.
This planner is far from finished, still a work in progress. I've been making divider pages by just using the ones included as templates. I've been using my label maker too--which I love.
I found the calendar pages I'll be using each month at The Handmade Home. Totally awesome and FREE. People like this are so cool :)
I found the address book pages here. I absolutely LOVE them. They have other cute printables too--such a fun site.
I used a telephone post card Aaron and Jess gave me to put on my "dashboard". It's actually from a book of postcards they got me for Christmas. This one stood out and I immediately knew it matched my planner :) I love it when that happens. I also added a little notebook, charm, butterfly paper clips, stickers and a photo. I adore it! I can't keep my hands off of it.
I've always been a NERD like that.
Last but not least, the chicken bookmark is from Jake's school. Dan bought it for me at the book fair. He told me I had to have it. It must be because of an old joke I tell him countless times.
"Why did the chicken cross the road?".
"To get to his lady friend on the other side".
It always makes him smile. (unless he feels sorry for me for telling such a stale joke).
Until next time.......
