I’m a planner girl. I utilize a planner for pretty much every corner of my life. Spiritual. Growth. Memory. An actual planner-planner. For me it’s just vital to keep all my thoughts in their rightful places.
Keeping it all together not only needs to include function, but form as well. Pretty form is the best kind of form. Am I right? The Floral Memory Planner Boxed Kit, now available at Hobby Lobby, is a most pretty little planner.
Today I want to take you on a little tour of this planner and all that makes it so perfect for any type of planning.
The planner, of course, is separated by monthly tabs. This planner starts with January, but one can start anywhere they want at anytime. I am starting with October.
Next is the dashboard. The dashboard allows plenty of space for planner goals, to-do lists, inspiring quotes. It’s there for basically anything you need at your fingertips.
It’s a great place to start the month, if you will. I always take some time at the beginning of the month to fill in some notes. My to-do lists. What it is that is out there for me to accomplish. Words of encouragements are helpful right here too.
The next page is the calendar page. A month spread out at a glance.
The Floral Planner Kit includes lots of filler pieces to make it workable. One most useful item are the clear number stickers. There are two sets. The smaller numbers are designated for the calendar page as seen above.
I use a piercing tool to lift the round sticker off the backing and place on the appropriate date in the journal. Makes it super easy to place all the stickers right where they need to go.
I am using this planner as a growth journal. A personal inspiration journal if you will. This will be home to quotes and notes from books I am currently reading that promote self growth.
I like to keep track of what books I am reading and what nuggets of wisdom I can pull from them.
For me a planner format is perfect to track my reads. Otherwise it just all blurs together. I need space to write down, plan, think, and even challenge myself. Still prone to use pen and paper, having this process housed in a beautiful spiral-planner keeps my mind organized and not a cluttered mess.
Next in our tour, the week-at-a-glance pages.
More clear number stickers are provided to fill these days in too. Again the piercing tool is put to work to easily place the number stickers on the days.
Now all that’s left is to fill in the spaces and days and weeks in progress. A planner is not one of those albums that is filled up all in one day. It’s a work in progress.
For me a planner is a daily creative therapy. A place to hold all the things. A place to get a little creative and make it pretty all the while attempting to stop and organize the blur.
