Happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful week. This week I would like to tell you all about a cool company called Write It Designs. This blog post will feature their planners. Next month I will tell you all about their fully customizable planner pads and notebooks. So let’s get started.
When you visit the Write It Designs website, you can choose from a number of different planners. All the planners have the same content, but you get to choose the cover pattern which in turn determines the colours of the inside content. I chose the Hello Today Teal Dot planner. These planners have one of my favourite features. They are coil bound! I learned many years ago that because of the way I read and write in my notebooks and planners, that I need everything to be coil bound.
Given that it is the beginning of January, I knew that I would use this planner for the 2016 calendar year. As soon as my daughter saw the planner, she grabbed it and said that it would be perfect for school because the planner is not dated so you can start it on any day and month that works for you. Too bad for her, as this one is for me. I can see ordering a planner for her in my future though!
When you open the planner, there is a full 12 month foldout spread housed behind this fabulous quote. I like how each time you peel back the cover this is what you are going to see, something positive and lively!
Next up in the planner are three years worth of mini calendars. It is always helpful to be able to look both forward and backwards from the current date. For each month you will then find a full month view as well as a week by week view.
I have been sick this week so I don’t have a lot of tasks listed each day, but on a normal week, these checklists would be filled with organization!
The open space at the bottom is perfect for making notes that are not day specific. I like to jot down things I need to buy and places I need to go sometime during the week.
Each month also has a to do list for the month. I quickly added reminders for things I want to accomplish this month. Having them written down here will give me a bit more pressure to actually finish them.
At the end of the planner, there is a plastic envelope to hold loose items. For now, I have tucked in the extra stickers I ordered for adding the dates to the planner and for marking special events and occasions.
My photos don’t do this planner justice. It is truly fabulous!
Shelby from Write It Designs would like to give one lucky Scrapbook Expo friend a planner of their own! Hooray!
