Happy Monday friends. This is a melancholy Monday for me because it is my last Monday while on maternity leave. (I’m not crying, YOU’RE crying.) Next Monday, I resume my work outside the home. I am looking forward to working with my colleagues again and treating my wonderful patients, but I will miss this slow and sleepy respite I’ve had at home with Theo. This will be a bittersweet week and if you please could pray for us during this transition, I would much appreciate it.
But, on to why I’m posting — week 2 in my planner! I had a ton of fun with this spread. I used a happy planner sticker book and some colorful washi. While I’ve always used a planner, my new use of various stickers and colors has become a restorative creative outlet. Usually, I’ve purchased run-of-the-mill planners that already have their own colors or themes. But my beautiful Blessed Is She planner is simply perfect. I can personalized it and make it my own each week, while also keeping on top of my schedule, my to-dos, and the liturgical seasons. I cannot rave about it enough. I exclusively used a bullet journal for all my lists and planning needs, but I had a hard time keeping up with the weekly spreads. So now I use my planner and my bullet journal separately and it’s working out nicely. I’ll show you my 2019 bullet journal set-up soon.
If this is your first time reading one of my planner posts, I’ll share with you some supplies I use. If you’re a regular around here, keep on scrolling to the photos.
- Blessed Is She Liturgical mini-planner
- The Happy Planner value sticker books
- Tombow twin tone pens
- Uniball signo pens
- Washi tape
- Fiskars paper cutter
- Fiskars scissors
- Label maker
- Zebra Mildliner highlighters
- Loose leaf planner paper
I wheel everything around on my craft cart. Maybe one day I’ll upgrade to a craft closet hehe.
On to the planner!
These photos don’t do the stickers justice. They are shimmery and oh so pretty. I think I’ll start showing my after the pen spreads too so you can see what the planner looks like when it’s been used. Would you like that? Happy planning friends!
