I'm pretty sure it's no secret that I love all things papercrafting and that includes pretty planners. Over the past two years I have been using the Me and My Big Ideas® Happy Planner™ and I love it.
I love The Happy Planner™ for a few reasons:
#1 It's so darn cute.
I mean really? How could you pass up the beauty of this planner? There are several styles to chose from and they even include topic specific planners such as; fitness & teacher. Yay! And not to mention the beautiful caboodles of accessories that are available. So gorgeous and fun!
#2 It's so versatile.
With the disc bound set up, removing and adding pages is super easy. They literally pop in and pop out.
#3 It's functional.
You can tell a lot of thought went into the design of The Happy Planner™. It really does "flow" well. And with several expansion sets you can customize the planner for your individual needs.
I went back and forth on whether or not to get more than one Happy Planner™ and decided I would try to make one work. I honestly needed three; one for home, one for homeschooling, and one for my social media accounts. However, I decided to create three planners in one. How I did that was by removing the already existing calendar and making photo copies on to card stock. This can be a little tricky to make sure your getting the right pages printed together. But after a little while I had three planners in one. Each month has three monthly calendars and each week has three weekly calendars. When I plan for the month or week I plan for all three. I like having them all together and in one planner. If you would like me to do a more in depth tutorial on that just leave a comment and I'll try to make one.
Okay, okay! Enough about the reasons why and how... On to the fun and pret ty stuff.
I wanted to share my take on planning and how I do it. I use this planner as a functional planner but I want it to look pretty at the same time.
My first weekly spread is for our home calendar.
This holds all of our appointments, to do list, bills to pay, things to buy and do.
The next spread is the same week's homeschool layout.
This holds everything we need to know for homeschooling; lessons, co op, field trips, projects, etc.
And the next spread is my social media weekly layout for that exact same week.
This holds all my scheduled blog and vlog post, promotions on Facebook and Instagram. And to do list for editing and writing post.
