A few days late … But here it is! I didn’t have as much time to think of a good layout, but I still like how it turned out. I’ve been doing more research on planner decorating and I guess I’m into what they call “glam planning”. Unfortunately, I’m finding out that glam planning and all the things I want to track aren’t mixing very well – I don’t have enough room! Thinking about making some inserts for myself for more space. I don’t have the money to spend on another planner yet but I’m totally loving the new Filofax look and kiki k’s! I also am looking into disc planners – I’ve seen them at craft stores but didn’t know how they would work for me. I’m on the hunt for now, but I still think maybe I could design a planner that fits me perfectly. Maybe someday!
I. love. planners. Apparently a TON of people feel the same way. (There is a whole planner addicts community on instagram and youtube)! My sister in law also loves planners. We like to talk about how much we love our paper planners in front of my husband, who thinks paper is obsolete and that I should stop living in the past and just “use your iCalendar already”. Then, we like to keep talking about how we will use our paper planners despite his attitude towards them because.. well WE DO WHAT WE WANT. And what we want is to physically cross off our to-do lists with a writing utensil … amen?! Haha!
Anyway… my super awesome sister-in-law, Tiffany Malloy, introduced me to the wonder that is the Erin Condren Life Planner and OH MAN am I excited! If you haven’t heard of these planners before I highly suggest you go to her website for a review! She has an affiliate link to get you 10$ off your purchase 🙂
Anyhoo – I just received mine and could barely wait to start organizing and decorating. While I was waiting to get it I found a lot of cute ways to personalize the planner and I thought maybe I’d share what I came up with each month. So here it is… the month of January!
I found these great stickers on Etsy
I’ve also seen someone print off instagram photos on sticker paper and decorate with them – which I think is an excellent idea! I still haven’t decided exactly how I’m going to use the calendar, especially the week by week pages. I don’t think it’s quite big enough for me to fit everything I do on daily basis, but I do think it would be a fantastic milestone calendar for my baby girl! I’ll do my best to keep up with this month to month, and let you know how it goes.
Do you have an Erin Condren Life Planner? How do you decorate? Show me!!
