okay okay!! I’m really excited to share my 2015 planner system with all of you today! Last year I used the Martha Steward disc bound system through Avery and I loved it!! Such beautiful colors and was just great for my organizational needs!
Originally I was going to just buy the new planner inserts for the MS system but I couldn’t find them and lets be real… once I saw this new planner from Heidi Swapp I didn’t even want to look for anything else!
the black and white stripes?? Just beautiful and then I found this pretty notebook from Sugar Paper through Target! Doesn’t it just pair perfectly with the stripes!
I thought the pockets on the inside of the binder could use a little sprucing up so I added some of my favorite glitter tape from MME and then all sorts of pretty paper clips and binder clips!
after I did some searching in blogland I had 2 thoughts… 1. Why has it taken me so long to get into this planning business?? I mean I loooove planning and I looovvvvee pretty paper, you’d think I would have married these two a long long time ago. 2. I need a sweet dashboard… like a really fun and pretty one… and this ladies and gentlemen is what I came up with!
I love love love setting goals and I love the fact that I can look at these ones anytime I want and they’re just so nice to look at aren’t they!? It makes me all motivated to actually accomplish some of these goals of mine.
The one thing I love most (besides how gorgeous this planner is) is the fact that I can also keep track of my memories!
For the past 2 years, I’ve done project life on a monthly basis. I know my life is way too busy to actually try to keep track of the week to week things so I thought a month would be way easier to handle. Basically I sit down with my iPhone pictures and put them in pocket pages and then add as much journaling as I can. I LOVE this planner because I can just slip in my pictures and some journaling and call it a day! Really easy and really low key, exactly what I need for this mama.
this divider is probably my favorite part of the planner…. I used an old Hambly screen print with these beautiful gold cameos and I think it’s just perfect!
I also wanted to put everyone’s birthday so I used this beautiful rose gold washi tape from My Minds Eye.
I’m gunna be real though….. the only thing I don’t like and I mean really really don’t like, is that I had to hand write in all the days of the week. What I don’t like even more is the fact that there are only 6 days on two pages. Which means that monday isn’t in the same place every week AND I can’t see all the plans for one full week at the same time… I’m not sure how this is going to go over but I hope it isn’t too big of a deal because I really want this planner to work!
I’m the kind of girl who loves to make lists and I loved the ones that I was using with my Martha setup but it’s not compatible with this system so I decided to make my very own!
and of course my planner isn’t complete without some doodles from the littles! I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get my kids to stay away from my planner! Oh well… it’s all about the memories right?
Please leave me some love and let me know what you think!!
