cocoa daisy: may planner pages
the add-on kit, so i was stoked when christine announced a subscription for that one. i mean, it was totally stressful wondering if there were going to be any left of the june kit with kp's post it notes in them. i am proud to report that mine arrived earlier this week. whew!
i have also realized that the place where i stick all my sticky notes is called a "dashboard." see! i'm learning. :)
free downloadable calendar each month.
on the right is where i've been putting my important events for the week as a reminder to myself and then decorating it a little with stamps. i had the revelation this month that it would also be a fun place to write little notes about my day. i think with this new plan, however, i need to start writing my weekly events in a fun ink color, so they'll stand out from my journaling.
i am not at all happy with my stamping on this page though. i'm a horrible stamper to begin with and then i used grey ink which wasn't dark enough. i went back and tried to stamp a couple again with black, but that just made them look fuzzy. now i've decided it would look cute to restamp the tag and bunny on white paper and then cut them out and glue them in. i think i'll even color the bunny then a la sam ho.
florence antonette's #creativemidorichallenge and had a blast. i've looked at a few list making/journaling type challenges before, but i really am loving this one. it's the perfect mix of thoughtful with fun and fluffy. i just get bogged down mentally when they're all requiring me to think. it's too much work after working all day, lol. these two pages hold prompts 1-9. i did 10-18 yesterday and have started another set today. i'll share those soon!
bee stamp set from cocoa daisy this month (i also used it on a set of cards).
how about you? are you a planner girl (yet)? :)
