New planner, new plan

I see I need to do another ICAD update. Must take pictures! Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, I’ve started a new project. Naturally. I bought an Erin Condren planner a couple of weeks ago to start memory planning in … then couldn’t wait until July to start so I cobbled together ┬ásome planner pages and glued them into my ECLP. Gave me a jump start on working in this kind of format, and I got to document my trip to NY and NJ for a weekend of doing and seeing theater.

I can already tell that I should have gone the Happy Planner route instead of the coil bound EC Life Planner. Far easier to start a new volume when the pages get full. But live and learn. I’ll see how far I can go in the planner I’ve got!

But I’m loving being able to put in pictures I print on my HP Sprocket, and little bits of my day … business cards, fortune cookie fortunes, clothing tags … and use up some of the VAST collection of die cuts and stickers I’m NOT using to scrapbook with since I can’t seem to get motivated to scrapbook.

I’ve been watching a million planner videos, a few of which are done by actual memory keeping planner people, which trying to avoid falling into the MUST BUY ALL THE STICKER KITS frenzy. I have more paper and paper doodads than any three people need. If I can use some of them up, so much the better. I even broke out my sticker Xyron I got for Christmas. About time!

So here’s two spreads in my new life planner/planner of my life… It is, as Miranda Hart is fond of saying SUCH FUN!

ICAD days 1 to 8

And so here’s week 1 of the Index Card a Day Challenge for 2017. Some of them got overworked. It’s hard to edit for a 4×6 inch space! And some of them were rushed, or done in pairs. But the first 8 days were fun, and that’s the important part!!
