I had alway just been writing my things down, with pretty colored pens, because I like pretty things. Well, in a quest to get organized, I started searching Pinterest for effective ways to use my planner.
Oh. my. goodness.
So many pretties. I now have a pinterest board just for planners. I also asked for, and received, a little sticker maker for Christmas. I spent a good portion of my Sunday making stickers. Then I planned out my week:
Ok, so actually, this picture is from before I got my sticker maker. Washi tape has been a pretty big thing at our house lately. I had several rolls, and was just using that. Then I got the sticker maker. I ran to my pinterest board and started printing the things I'd been saving and added a few.
I printed the little running guy to represent cardio from a clipart I found online. I got the water tracker from here, and the Happy New Year banner from here. I had to seriously cut down the new year banner, as it's made too big to fit in the lines on mine, but still pretty.
I have been anxiously awaiting today so that I could start using my new planner. My old one was wonderful, but there's just something special about a new year, and the crisp, cleanness of a new planner and a fresh start.
