It is August already, how did that happen? Next month I will be starting my Christmas planning, now that is a scary thought! So before I start to hyperventilate lets get on with Planner Friday.
My week so far
I went with a fun owl theme this week, I like how bright and colourful it is. I was inspired by some cute owl note cards but I will tell you more about them in a minute. I find cheerful pages make me more likely to look in my planner and keep on top of what I need to do, if I had boring pages I would probably only open up my Filofax once a day and then I'd end up forgetting things.

I started using the Feeling Happy planner stamps last month and I love them! They are perfect for keeping track of my feelings and are quick and easy to use. On my daily sections I write down any appointments or events, my to do lists and reminders and I keep track of my blog statistics, that doesn't really leave me much space for anything else.
Details of the day card - recording occasions big & small
Some days something big and memorable will happen, like the first day of school, but sometimes it can be a little moment that you want to remember. I am using these Details Of The Day cards to record both kinds of events. They have a line for you to write the date, a list of feelings for you to check off, some options for what the weather was like and a section for you to write what you would like to remember about that day. I used one this week to record making daisy chain bracelets in the garden with my youngest daughter. She will be starting nursery school next month and I'm going to miss her being at home with me during the day. That is why I want to remember these little moments with her because before I know it she'll be too old to play with me any more!
Owl Note It card
This is the note card that inspired my decoration this week. My husband is going away with friends for the weekend and I knew I would have to write a packing list. I think the little blue owl on it is adorable! You can use these cards for journalling or notes so they are cute and practical.
I hope to see you all again in September, I wasn't joking about starting my Christmas planning then. In fact I have just ordered some fab Christmas Tree Paper Clips from the store!
