December Planner Spreads

2017 is coming to an end and I must say that I am truly happy with the new planning hobby that I started earlier this year.  Throughout the past ten months I have come to find a sense of tranquility when I am decorating my planner and peace when I see things are organized for the month or week.  Of course, I still leave room for spontaneity especially because I am married to Mr. Spontaneous himself, but I find comfort in knowing the bill payments have been scheduled, the appointments are set, and the meal plan is complete.  Next year I plan to add Memory Planning to my hobby and I look forward to creating some beautiful scrapbook photo albums.

My December planner spreads are filled with plenty of glitter, sparkle, and color.  I love the holiday season so my planner spreads definitely reflect my love for Christmas, family time, and making lifetime memories.  This month the spreads feature stickers from the Me and My Big Ideas (Happy Planner) sticker books as well as washi from Dollar Tree and Amazon.  You can see my monthly and weekly planner spreads via this recent YouTube video.

My faith journal monthly spreads include a breakdown of a beautiful card made by my friend Catina, along with other goodies available in detail via my recent blog post.

 

Hope your holiday season is off to a great start and I pray that you enjoy making great memories for the remainder of 2017 and beyond.

 Make this season bright,

My First Planner Meet-up

I was so excited to attend my first planner meet-up here in the Lone Star State!  I was able to meet some awesome women, learned so much about my new hobby, and even won some amazing goodies. I found out about this event by clicking a hahtag on Instagram, which I usually don’t do.  It landed me on the DFW Planner Addicts page and from there I joined the Facebook group, and started joining in on the fun conversations.  I love this group because the ladies share more than planner photos, they share coupons, life stories, and even encouragement.

You can watch my meet-up experience via this recent video.

I am so grateful for the time I had there and I hope you enjoyed a peek into my swag bag along with some amazing photographs from the event.  If you are a part of an great planner group on Facebook or follow an awesome planner via Instagram please comment and let me know.

You can also check out a recent flip through of my October planner spreads in this recent YouTube video.

    JD and Brooklyn & Mocha Glam Box for Planners

    Recently I was in search for some planner stickers that represented women of color and I was having a hard time narrowing down my search.  I tried a couple of shops but did not like the shipping time and upon arrival, the items weren’t up to par.  While clicking hashtags on Instagram I came across a few posts showcasing the Mocha Glam Box for Planners.  I was so excited! The very thing I had been looking for was available to me via monthly subscription so I decided to try it out.  To see the goodies I received check out my recent YouTube video.

    Included in the box I received were stickers from a new Etsy shop called JD and Brooklyn.  I have become a faithful customer of this shop because of the variety of planner stickers offered, the great price point, and extremely reasonable shipping cost.  With JD and Brooklyn you are able to customize your stickers with several skin tone options and a few even have various hairstyles to chose from.

    Since the shop is so new I know most people wonder about shipping time and customer service.  With my first order, two sheets were missing and I notified Philshaunda via Etsy message the same day.  She contacted me immediately and the missing sheets were at my house within three business days.  As for order shipping times, my orders have all shipped and arrived to my mailbox within six business days.  I encourage you to check her shop for the detailed shipping information and keep in mind that it takes time to customize, print, pack, label, and ship anything.

    Mocha Glam 5

    This month I used items from my Mocha Glam Box for Planners and my multiple JD and Brooklyn hails in my various planner spreads.  Remember to check out my Instagram for weekly planner posts!  And don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you will see all of my October spreads via my recent planner video.

    Happy Planning,

    Today, I Need Some Encouragement 

    Last month, my family endured a devastating loss and after all we’ve endured, rest is definitely needed. Usually, I’ve prepared my monthly blog posts well in advance but right now, my mind is all over the place.  I am typing this completely worn out at 1:00 am CST in our hotel suite.  My family is resting after a long two weeks and I think tonightI will FINALLY get a long overdue 8 hours of sleep.  I look forward to coming back in September with a tribute to our family member and some great series but until then, enjoy these reposts and recent videos. 

    This week I needed some encouragement so check out my recent video about the covering of God and check out the blog post by clicking this fantastic hyperlink.

    Make this week grand,

    My Newest Addiction: Planners Galore!

    My newest addiction is one that hit me like a ton of bricks after watching a suggested YouTube video.  My friend Bridgette has been telling me about using a planner for years but with the increase in phone capabilities, I just moved away from pen and paper.  Last year, I noticed that I was becoming drawn to my phone for every menial and important thing, including planning.  I noticed that I’d wake up and reach for my phone immediately and even end the day with playing on my phone.  That is not how it should be!  So, after some research and binge watching of planner videos I decided on the Happy Planner.

    In January, I was so grateful that I happened to catch some Happy Planners on clearance in my local Mardel for $5.99 each and I purchased both designs.  One was the horizontal Rose Gold 2016-2017 and the other was vertical Peonies 2016-2017 style.  I immediately put both to use by just practicing spreads and alternating weeks for a couple of months.  As I defined my planner style, I realized that I preferred to use vertical for family/personal planning while the horizontal would work best as a gratitude journal.  In addition to those, I have added a several more planners to fit my lifestyle and I am so excited to share my planner line up for the remainder of 2017.

    2017 HAPPY PLANNER LINE UP

    • Family/Personal scheduling will be jotted down in the beautiful Wildflowers 2017-2018, Classic
    • Daily Goals and Resolution Reminders will be placed in my undated A Well Crafted Life, Mini

    • Morning Prayer will be written down in the new horizontal, Have Faith, Classic
    • Weekly Sermon Notes will be transcribed within the 12 Month Box Kit – Faith Edition, Classic

    • Gratitude Journal entries shall be placed in the remaining months of my horizontal, Rose Gold, Classic
    • Fitness plans, goals, and accomplishments will be noted within the Fitness Extension Pack

     

    I truly believe that using my planners for these various avenues has been a great decision.  It is so relaxing to begin and end my day with journaling rather than staring at a smart phone screen.  I’ve been able to put down the phone, pick up a book, and use my time wisely.  Of course, I still scroll aimlessly from time to time; however, those purposeless swipes are few and far between in 2017!  Thank God for my newest addiction and all the time I’ve managed to use wisely since my starting #plannerlife.

     

    You can see more of my weekly spreads, planner hauls, and some of the sticker shops I use on my @Married2KDK Instagram account.  A blog post featuring my favorite sticker shops will be coming soon.  In this month’s flip through videos you will see stickers from several shops including MadeWithSouthernLuvTheBustyPlanner, Armadillo Amore,  StickItInYourPlanner, and PreppyPlannerCo.  You can also see individual flip through videos of each planner I showed via The Happy Planner youtube channel.

     

    Make this week organized,
