The time management aspects of this planner rock. The daily grids are roomy enough for my scrawl. The goal setting and tracking pieces are perfect for me, though there is one worksheet I haven’t a clue how to use, LOL. There is even a journal section to reflect on how you did over the course of the year.
It is big. 8.5 by 11 and maybe half an inch thick (certainly not for everyone). It is also very utilitarian with a rather flimsy cover. Something I was willing to live with due to the awesomeness of the rest of it.
Then. Then Joely posted what she did to her planner!
We’ll start with the paper. I had been gifted this paper a few months ago. It’s gorgeous but not the style I usually scrap in. :cough: Boys. :cough: Thus it had been hanging out in my craft closet. But it was perfect for my planner!
With all the sections in the planner, tabs were next on my list. Well, I have a Stampin’ Up Tab punch complete with pretty stamps to go with it. I dug through my paper scraps and found this beige-tan card stock that complimented the Tea papers. A brown ink pad, a sepia tone pen, and ta-da…
I vaguely remembered having a tea pot charm stashed away amongst my scrapbook hoard, er, collection. So digging I went. Turns out what I was remembering is actually a jewelry toggle set, tea pot and spoon. Undeterred, I attached them to the bottom of my bookmark.
Then I attached the top to the back cover of the planner and covered it with a Tea paper.
Then it was just a matter of adding Tea papers to all the blah pages and finishing off with the tabs.
Now, I’m looking forward to next year’s planner just so I can decorate it!!
