If you keep up with this blog and my YouTube channel you know I’ve dipped my toes in the planner world. Or I thought I was dipping my toes. I’ve felt the need to get organized lately given the changes in my life. So, I bought an Erin Condren Life Planner and the rest is history. I am in love with it, and with the planner world. I talk about my disorganization and my problems with my Heidi Swapp planner in this video. I also talk a little more about why I’m disorganized.
My planner finally arrived and I was so excited, I filmed an unboxing video. It comes in such a pretty box, and it’s wrapped so beautifully, it really is fun to open! (I’ve also started stepping up my game in terms of videos. I’ve got this music thing down now! Lol)
Because I’m a papercrafter, and because I had purchased the Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice collection, I had to do my October monthly layout using that paper. It’s so cute! I’m not usually a “Fall” person. I don’t normally go gaga over fall and Christmas collections, but this year, maybe since I’ve gotten married, I’m feeling a little more sentimental about the fall. Here’s a process video of how that October decorating was done. I added a Snap page insert and put a little Project Life into my planner as well. Using the Erin Condren clips I was able to add the page, and the pictures and PL cards can be changed out with the seasons! Love it! It makes the planner so much more personal.
While I love my ECLP, I chose to purchase the horizontal planner. I have been struggling with it a bit. This week though, I have finally landed on a system that works for me. It’s all about the strategic placement of washi and stickers. I’m using a 4 column set up in this video, and am able to track meal planning/appointments in one column, household To Dos in the next, journaling and general “This happened today” entries, and finally I track/plan all my social media interaction and Etsy business in the last column. I think it is totally going to work!
And of course, because I love my planner soooo much, I’ve been making it some little accessories. I love macarons. So, of course, I made some little planner charms. I am in love!
Of course I’ve listed some for sale in my Etsy shop because I want to share them! They are sooooo cute!
Here’s a link to one of the listings! Planner Charm Listing
