Memory Planner: May 2015


I'm pretty sure this is the longest I've ever "kept up" with a planner.  I always have a running calendar of some sorts, but this planner has kept me motivated and energized for this entire year so far.  I love taking a few minutes here and there to fill in the details of our lives, as well as our daily activities.  


I love that there are no expectations and no rules.  I can stamp here and there; add journaling cards or sticky notes - you name it!  

I keep the majority of my planner supplies in a few wire baskets in my craft room, but I usually find myself pulling out my extra Studio Calico supplies when I work in my planner.  Using my alpha stamps and inks is my new favorite (as you can probably tell by looking at these few weeks).  Once I get started on something, I usually can't stop!  :)


I've found that our Saturday/Sundays aren't as "list-y" as the rest of the week, so I usually print off a few photos of our week and add those in on Saturday/Sunday.  The mix of photos, stamps and lists just makes me super happy!




It's a super simple way to work in a planner, but it's a great outlet for creative play!  I'm still curious if I will be able to fit an entire year in this book.  I kind of stopped adding in extra inserts in hopes of being able to keep everything in one binder, so I'm staying hopeful!  :)
