It was hard to find time to just sit and let the creative juices come through, so I spent time reading or just browsing Pinterest and creating boards about things that I wish I had time to do. I have missed the papercrafting and all the creativeness that comes with it.
So, it comes as no surprise that when I stumbled across pictures on Instagram of decorated planners (usually by teachers, Mrs. Harris to be exact) and then the name Erin Condren kept popping up, and I was onboard quick! Decorating planners... why not, right?
I had nowhere to really start so I began with the planner I was already using. So I got started with whatever scrapbooking supplies I had on hand. THEN I started seeing more pictures and discovered the Planner Life... and "oohed and ahhed" over all the pretty and cute planners that others were creating. So I took myself to Michaels (not ready to indulge in an expensive Erin Condren planner quite yet) and sought out something similar, but more affordable. I also picked up a few starter things to get going.
And here is what I have created for this week:
(It is simple and cute...but I have bigger ideas for the coming weeks!)
And here is where I am linking up...a few days late, but I jumped on the boat a little late!
Click on it to get to Kreative in Kindergarten's blog post and check out others who are linking up and showing off their Fall/October Themed planners!
There is SO much papercraft stuff out there for this fun, new hobby of mine! I need to make a Spending Jar just to be able to buy all the cute stuff on my Etsy Wish List!
Will I keep up with it? Maybe. I really think I will though, even when life gets too busy. I do lesson plans and meal plans every weekend, so all I have to do is squeeze in some extra time to make my weekly spread in my planner look pretty!! And by linking up with Plan With Me Sundays, I can try to keep myself on track!
