Monthly Planning


I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” L.M. Montgomery October’s printables are here! Supplies I used to create these pages: Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pens (These are the pens I use for headers and calligraphy. They are amazing, they basically do the work for you!) Pilot Metropolitan Fountain Pen Staedtler Triplus Fineliners Prismacolor Colored Pencils Prismacolor Colored Pencil Blender – This is the first time I’ve tried these blenders and I love them! They can give you a nice watercolor effect even if you’re using regular colored pencils. For a full explanation on each of these spreads and how I use them for monthly planning, click here.

September has arrived and here’s hoping that sweater weather will quickly follow. If you’ve been reading my blog this year you might have noticed I’m not a big fan of the heat. When it comes to summer weather, I’m all too happy to ” Let it go.” After all –  ” The cold never bothered me anyway.” Wow, can you tell I have three kids and have seen Frozen 362 times?

Anyway, September printables are here! Scroll to the bottom to sign up for yours! If you’re already signed up you can head to the Printabundle Library and enter your password.

If you’ve been reading my blog this year you might have noticed I’m a little obsessed with my Monthly Planning sessions. Before I started journaling regularly, I used to take things as they came. That may sound super chill, but the results were anything but. Because I wasn’t planning ahead, things would slip thru the cracks. I was always busy, but curiously unaccomplished. This is because I was being “reactive” instead of  “proactive”.

August is here and for many that means the summer is winding down and back-to-school is kicking up. Here in the deep south, it means it will be blazingly hot for at least 2 more months but we still have to pretend summer is over and be productive. It’s a sad time. However, it does give me an opportunity to break out some new planning pages for my peeps, which makes my faux “end of summer” a little brighter.

June is less than a week away and that means summer is here.  Summer is not my favorite season mainly because I’m not crazy about the unbearable heat the South East is famous for. Being in Georgia in the summer is like being in Antarctica during the winter. Air conditioning becomes my very best friend and we spend a great deal of time together.

Time for another monthly planning session! April is around the corner and I’ll be honest, I’m happy see March go. March proved to be as tumultuous a time as I expected. After several school events, a big family wedding, and unfortunately, 2 funerals, I’m in need of a lazier month. April isn’t completely the snooze fest I’m dreaming of, but It’ll do.
