Today we continue this 10 day series with some fun extras that can make planning pretty and a fantastic creative outlet. Although I can’t draw or paint, I find decorating calms me and makes me smile when I look back on what I created.
Some of my favorite things ever for planning:
Even though I have good penmanship, I like the consistency of using a label maker for even spacing and straight lines. For my ARC tabs, I bought some clear tape cartridges-and I still was O.C.D about getting them on just right.
What better to make something pretty when you don’t have a huge creative streak? Gorgeous colors and patterns already made for you!
Made Just For You:
Even if you have a planner that is popular, you can still make the outside your own! I just ordered an adorable monogram for my planner from The Sassy Coconut on Etsy. It will be my monogram, and I can’t wait for it to get here!!
There are planner charms, you can make homemade dividers, personalize a “dashboard”-the sky is the limit!!
I am most fond of felt marker-like pens.
I also just ordered some Staedtler Triplus from JetPens. Photo credit JetPens.com. I love the triangular grip!
Believe it or not, I will be discussing my favorite pens tomorrow. A pen addict has to devote an entire post to such a beloved category if you ask me!
Since I am not of the girly variety, you will find no Hello Kitty or bursts of pink, but you will see owls! You’ll also see lots of blues and teals and ORANGE!! Purple used to be my favorite color, but I do believe orange has taken over the top spot for me!
These are my favorite goodies, but I would love to know what yours are!
Be sure to check out what my friends have for you this week.
