Plan With Me Monday September 5th to 11th


Good Morning and welcome back to another Plan With Me Monday. Although technically its not Monday but Tuesday but I have been thinking about this weeks planner layout all weekend. I started planning for this layout this morning and it took me over an hour to complete it. I really wanted to take my time planning it out because I absolutely loved the theme this month and it was a perfect week to use it with Back to School week.

You might recall last week I posted about the planner subscription box I receive monthly from Design Pandemonium and this months kit (Savy Reader) well since getting that I knew that it was going to be used this week in my planner.


This is the completed layout before the pen and I have to say that I am normally a no white space planner but I find with Design Pandemonium’s subscription that I have to force myself to be a white space planner and I have to say that I think it looks really good. What do you think?

I have to say that I think my absolute favorite thing in the box was the sample of the washi books. Its perfect for the book lover in me.

This week I actually have two Plan With Me Mondays for you. In July when we went to Plattsburgh, NY for the weekend I decided that I wanted to try out The Happy Planner because it was just a little cheaper (and I had a coupon from Michael’s for it)  then the Erin Condren and I wouldn’t be able to get a new EC until they went on sale next April (2017). This Happy Planner is dated from July 2016 to December 31/2017.

This is mainly my blogging planner until the new year when it will be come my main planner.


For the past 11 weeks I have been getting use to and playing around with this planner trying to get use to it because its a little different then the Erin Condren and I have to say that its growing on me. This week I used a kit from Isabelle The Owl that I bought back from her in April called Rustic and Rose weekly kit. Her shop is currently closed so I don’t know if this is still available or not.


I like how it turned out and I think I am starting to get the hang of the planner. Perhaps thats another plan post to come.

What do you think?

Plan With Me Monday August 29th – September 4th

Good Morning, I hope you all had a good weekend. It was a really good weekend here because we got to go to Chazy Lake in upper New York state (about 30 minutes from Plattsburgh). A hockey family that we know invited us along with 5 other families to their cottage by the lake for the weekend. It was so pretty there.

Its time for another Plan With Me post. I hope you are enjoying these.

With much encouragement from my family they suggested that I should share with you my Plan With Me Mondays on my blog instead of just on instagram.

You might recall back in April (you can click here to see that post) I mentioned that I was finally able to get a Erin Condren Life Planner when they had their 50% off sale. Since then I have been decorating my planner, which I found out is a huge thing all over the world and there is a huge planner community as well. Which has been a great source of information.

I tend to do my Plan With Me, Sunday mornings just because I am usually up early and on my own and the house is super quiet. So while I prep the coffee I take my planner and stickers (that will be a upcoming blog post perhaps) and head to the dining room table to pick out what I want to use that particular week. This week I am a little late in doing it because we were away and didn’t get back until last night and by then I knew if I started to plan it would come out all wrong.

I purchase all my planner kits online from various etsy sellers. Mostly Canadian ones just because of shipping and the exchange rate but I do purchase some through USA or international sellers depending on what they are.

This week since since its back to school for Michael and I didn’t really plan for a back to school week kit I decided that I would use The Best is Yet to Come Little weekly planner kit from Little Paper Prints.  It came with 8 pages filled with an assortment of stickers. Sadly this kit is no longer available in her shop. This was one of the first kits I bought back in April.

This is how the finished product before the pen looks. I wish I would have captured a better photo but the battery in my  camera was charging so I used my phone instead. I really like how it came out.

What do you think? Do you do planner decorating? Do you have a favorite etsy seller?

See you next week. Happy Planning.
