February, Creativity, and Looking Ahead

One month of 2017 has evaporated into thin air, only a memory. February is here and it feels a little like winter again but that's not stopping me from dreaming and scheming!  Basically took me the full week to even feel like I had energy again so please beware of the killer virus if you encounter it!

I thought I'd take a minute today to show you my little planners I'm using in two areas of my life for 2017.  I picked them up at Michaels and with a coupon they cost basically ten bucks each.  They are so cute. The inserts in the yellow one are actually a mini Happy Planner that I am using inside the adorable yellow binder. The yellow makes me smile and reminds me that warmer days are ahead!

The blue one is a mini faith journal for 2017. The last two years I used a larger version (The classic Happy Planner) but I decided to mix it up a bit this year. For January I followed a scripture reading plan called Pure Joy.

The yellow one is my planner that I carry with me but honestly with being retired I don't need it as much as I have in the past. On days where I don't have a lot to record I just add something pretty or write a quotation!

I usually set up the week and record appointments, etc and then at the end of the week if there's blanks I add more embellishments, sayings or write any thing noteworthy from the date. Planners are definitely all the craze right now!

I'm excited to be looking ahead and planning a spring break trip to Seattle with Katie and Evan, my grandson. Also in June we will travel to the Badlands, Deadwood and Mount Rushmore. For some reason Evan is really wanting to see Mount Rushmore.  I'm sure I will be cooking up so more adventures for the months ahead so stay tuned!
