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”.
Anybody who scrolls through Pinterest on a daily basis knows – washi tape is the sh**. There seems to be no end to how you can use this hip and colorful tape to create oodles of creative projects. Though I love a good mason jar craft as much as the next girl, I longed to use my growing collection of tiny tape in a more practical way. Being the planner obsessed girl that I am, I found a way to use washi tape to boost the productivity of my planner and not just its beauty.
Enter the washi tape index! Today I’m going to show you how I use washi tape as a DIY index for my planner. It’s simple, easy and way more fun than writing everything out. And who doesn’t want another excuse to buy more washi tape, right?
Let’s get started with the basics. What is washi tape and why does it rock?

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.
What’s for dinner?
shot question heard ’round the world. I just made dinner last night, doesn’t that count for anything? Unfortunately, humans need to eat regularly, making providing dinner a “what have you done for me lately” kind of deal. If you happen to be the main chef in the household you are in a high-pressure job with a new deadline every day and unsolicited performance reviews around every corner.
I feel you. But there is hope for the weary. My solution to everything? Planning! Which is why there is a Bullet Journal spread to answer every question, solve every problem and eventually bring world peace. 😉✌

What’s the best part of being a blog-aholic? The free printables! Yes, we all love a good freebie. But sometimes our freeloading joy is marred by poor options for application, especially if you’re a bullet journal junkie. What do we print our goodies on? Do we just tape them in our notebooks? Glue stick anyone? Huh, now that doesn’t look as pretty as I thought it would.
Well, today I’m going to show you a strange and wonderful solution. When I was hit with the tape and glue blues I did some research and found a cool way to make a DIY planner sticker. The answer was, oddly, Avery Shipping Labels.
Since I first started sharing my Bullet Journal on social media in 2016, I’ve gotten so many questions about the pens I’m using to create my headers. I’ve also been asked many times if I’ve been formally trained, taken any courses on calligraphy and the like. Well, today I’m gonna give my readers the goods. The juicy secrets of handwriting success, if there is such a thing.
Why plan seasonally? Each season brings its own events and responsibilities. For instance, if you live in a cold climate, winter brings the extra chore of shoveling snow regularly to clear a path for your car in the driveway. If you have a yard, spring brings the extra chores of gardening, weeding, mowing the lawn regularly again, etc. Though these may be considered minor changes, if you’re already on a tight schedule and overworked like most of are, these chores can get overwhelming fast. If you happen to be pursuing long-term goals on the side, guess which tasks get put aside to make room for these seasonal changes? You’ve got it. Suddenly the time you were using to write the great American novel is spent catching up on the laundry. Bummer.
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.
