Planner Friday - January

Hello!  Welcome to the first Planner Friday of the year!  I am Amanda from She's Eclectic and once a month I share my ideas for prettying up your planner. 

The start of a new year is when a lot of people make a resolution to get more organised and using a diary or planner is the perfect way to start.  I get bored with plain pages in my Filofax so I like to decorate them and make them more fun.  I start with choosing a washi tape and adding a strip of it to the top and bottom of the page and then I use my Trendy Page Dots reinforcements for another pop of colour.  Annies Paper Boutique has a range of planner stamps which I love using as they look so neat and tidy, they also save me from having to write the same reminders over and over each week.  Lastly I add some stickers to complete the look but I make sure I leave enough space just in case I need to write a note or add to my to do lists.

Another resolution people make at this time of year is to get more healthy and I am one of them.  I never drink the recommended eight glasses of water a day so I decided I was going to try and change that habit this year.  In the Drinks & More stamp set there is a Hydrate stamp and an Am/Pm one too so I am using these to record my water intake.  If I drink three glasses of water in the morning I check the box and if I drink three in the afternoon I check the pm box.  I'm trying to build it up to eight glasses but for now six will do.

This is how my week is shaping up now, as you can see I also use my diary pages to record how I have been feeling using some journalling stamps.  I like selecting the stamp that best reflects my day and they don't take up much room on the page.  I find it quicker and easier than trying to write about my day!


My week so far

If you have brought yourself a new planner or were given one for Christmas why don't you take a look at the store and see what goodies take your fancy?  

I will be back in February with a new post, I hope to see you then!

  10. Looking at your pages makes me want to get a bit more organized too! I really like how you use the stamps to remind yourself of how you are feeling for that day. And I like that you have a plan for cleaning something in the house daily. It looks awesome!
