Happy Labor Day…

It’s been a really low key Labor Day around here. I did some laundry, mopped the floor, and took a nap…perfect. I was also able to scrap a few pages and print some stickers.

I just thought I’d drop by and share my PL pages for the last few weeks. I still have the spread for this week to do and I’m all caught up again, but it will probably have to wait until next week.

All of my pages for this year use Just Jaimee’s Ready to Go pages!! They are a life saver for me. All I have to do is add photos and journaling and I’m done. Sometimes I change things up a bit, but if I’m in a bind, I don’t have to. They are seriously amazing!!

And while I’m here… I’m going to try to stay more of top of sharing my planner pages. For those I use Just Jaimee’s Story Planner kits. They are amazing as well. I’ve been printing the stickers for my desk planner and also making a pocket planner for my purse using all the contents of these kits.

And that’s it from me for today. I hope you have all had a fantastic Labor Day weekend and the upcoming week treats you well!! Peace, out…

Planner Peace…

I honestly haven’t decided if there is or not, but I am having fun figuring it out and my planner has really helped me out tremendously. I wanted to do a whole post on this because I did abandon my Heidi Swapp. It’s not that I didn’t like it, I just wanted to try something new.

First, I bought a Big Happy Planner. I was going to buy a Teacher Happy Planner but found the regular planner at a really great price and decided I could modify it to meet my teacher needs and so far it’s been great! I am simply using thin pastel washi tape to split the 3 daily sections in to 6 and I added an information section to the front with class lists, meeting notes, parent contact, etc. I haven’t taken any photos recently, but here is one when I was playing with sectioning it off before school started:

It’s really working out well and I am really loving it. Then I started thinking that maybe I needed the smaller one for my home stuff. Again, trying to justify spending the money. And then I realized that I already have some fantastic calendar pages and inserts in Just Jaimee’s Story Planner Kits!! So, I went on a mission to make my own version of the happy planner! I found some great covers and inserts at Planner Addiction, ordered some discs, and a punch, and got to work.

This is the cover:

The full year calendar is a freebie from the MAMBI site and is the inside cover.img_1847

 

The tabs aren’t exactly what I want, but I hope to update them when I have time. This divider is from Just Jaimee’s Story Planner September Kitimg_1848

 

The monthly and weekly calendars are from Just Jaimee’s Story Planner A5 System and these pages are decorated with the September Kit.img_1849img_1850img_1851

 

I added a Grocery List and Menu Planner insert each week and they are both from Jaimee’s A5 Systemimg_1852img_1853

 

I’m also adding a journal card to each week to note any memories that I might not have room for on the pages. Not pictured is the photo pocket, so that I can add a couple of photos for each week. img_1854img_1855

 

I am really loving it so far and printed enough weekly pages to get me through December or January. I’ll try to get some more photos this week of how I have updated things. Happy Planning!! Peace, out…

 

Quick Planner Update…

Too busy planning to be sharing ha!! I am loving my planner so much. I actually took it to work one day last week to get some photos in better lighting, and left it there. I was lost when I got home! I’ve been updating the gallery, but haven’t come to share on the blog.

This is the end of February and the first week in March, which is still a work in progress. I need to print a couple of journal cards to pop in there, and at the end of the week, I’ll add a couple of photos for the week.

I am still playing around with the format I’m using to see what I like the best, and I may just change it up every month. I really look forward to the weekend so that I have time to work on the next week!! I’m off to fill in some things for the next couple of days and then off to bed. I’m hoping to catch up on PL tomorrow and be back to share those pages. Over the hump and downhill from here. Peace, out…

Planning the New Year

Well, the day has come…back to work tomorrow and I’m not sure I’m ready for it, mentally anyway. My goal for the last several years has to be better organized, and I think I’ve done fairly well at it every year, but not where I’d like to be. So, this year, I decided to purchase a planner and really get down to business. Another thing that is helping me along is all the great planner accessories out there in digi-land. There are so many pretties!! I am going to do my best to share my planner progress here and have created a page for it – Planner Pages 2016. I’m really enjoying dressing it up and keeping track of things already.

I am using a Heidi Swapp Memory Planner and it is the perfect size for me. Everything I have used so far to decorate it comes from Just Jaimee’s Story Planner 2016 January Kit and her Welcome Bag. Make sure you check out all the great deals you can get by subscribing and becoming a VIP!

This is a dashboard that I printed for the very front of the planner. In the pocket to the side are the stickers that I have printed and cut to be used throughout the month.

The Planner came with some pockets, so I just printed a couple of cute journal cards for the new year and slid them in.

On this first sheet that was included with the planner, I am tracking all the basketball games and practices that we have coming up in January.

This is a journal card from Just Jaimee’s Storyteller 2016 Collection that I just loved.

I also added a month at a glance card from the Welcome back and another dashboard that I printed and glued to the first page of the new month.

I prettied up this page with some fun stickers and am using it for birthday and important date tracking.

And this is the first week of January, with not much there yet, with the exception of a few fun stickers and a back to work reminder.

I will try to be back and update with each week’s progress as I can. I already have some fun ideas for the coming weeks. Thanks for looking and hope you have a terrific week ahead! Peace, out…
