Weekly planning

Happy Sunday!
So… I’ve been spending some time each day on my listers gotta list and I feel good for it.  It’s only been ten minutes each day when the baby is in bed but I feel a bit more like the old me – someone with something to say and not just a mum.  It’s been really nice to make a mess and create.




And while I’ve been impatiently waiting for July so that I can start using my Ban.do I’ve even found some time to decorate my filofax.


I wasn’t writing my blog when I did it but I couldn’t find any A5 inserts that I liked – the Filofax ones are way too thin for me and Paperchase didn’t have any inserts in store or online so I had to create my own.  Basically I just bought a spiral bound planner from Paperchase, cut off the holes down the side and punched.  The paper quality is really good.


Back to work planning

Hi again, I’ve been meaning to add this week’s pages to the blog but it’s been a mad week of enrolling and trying to prepare for the first week of teaching.  This week’s pages were inspired by this journalling card:

So last week’s pages looked like this:

This week I’ve received some lovely happy mail from My Pretty Week after winning a competition on Facebook:

they were gratefully received after a hard week in work.  I recently bought the dashboard and dividers that are currently in my filofax from My Pretty Week’s Etsy shop here: My Pretty Week on Etsy

This week I’ve also signed up for an ‘At the End of my Pen’ workshop with Tangie Baxter (here) and the idea is you art journal for 21 days from 10th September so I’m looking forward to starting – i’ll try and post my pictures here as I think this’ll motivate me to actually do it each day.

Hope you’re all ok and having a good weekend so far.
