If you are an avid user of Instagram, Facebook, YouTube or even Pinterest, then you'll know that 2015 is the year of the planner! My addiction with notebooks and planners started back in 2007, when I first started my business. This year it has fuelled to a whole new level, with social media publicising others like myself.
First, I found the perfect year planner from sugarpaper.com, who are on Instagram as @SugarPaperLA. Their planner is super affordable and cute compared to some of the others available, plus it can also be found at Target.
With planners taking over social media, a whole new business is developing around production of labels, stickers and so on. I've been finding more and more sellers on Etsy that carry these items, but having too much choice can be overwhelming. In fact, I got so overwhelmed and frustrated that I didn't purchase a single thing!
Then, last month, a light bulb went off in my head! I remembered a load of labels I'd purchased that were the wrong size, and were just collecting dust. So, I made a list of what labels and stickers I needed for my planner, and then made my own. Problem solved!
I was so happy with them that I couldn't wait to embellish my pages that first week! With several businesses and a very busy personal life, it's vital to stay organised. So my advice to all planner addicts like myself is - if you find yourself becoming overwhelmed, just do it yourself! Then buy some cute washi tapes, and you're good to go. Happy Planning!
