a little planning...

I thought I would stop in with another planner post.  I am still planning away and love love love my Erin Condren planner.  Like my cards, I definitely keep my planner clean and simple.  These new stamps from Waffleflower are SO fun and help out so much.  Here is a quick shot of this next week before I added in all my lists.

I use some very thin washi I found at Michael's to mask of the column headers.  Then I use the Wafflweflower set called Planner-Stay Focused for the AM and PM, and BLOG headers.  I also use the little check boxes because I LOVE to see things marked off my lists.  These stamps are so handy and keep everything neat.  I don't like my messy handwriting, so these definitely help me to feel like I have everything neat and tidy.  I start with my Monday DT tasks and then I cross of what I have finished and transfer the unfinished list to Tuesday.  

In the same set, there are some little calendar boxes, which I find super useful for reminders.  I have a whole stack stamped out and I can pull them out when something is due.  

Just another close up shot of the sticky note....


I use my Versafine Black Onyx ink and I keep a mini acrylic block in my planner bin, so I'm ready to stamp and plan the week!


I got a new cover too.  I think I am an addict.  But I have learned I am not alone.  So I am ok with it.  I love this new Turquoise and Platinum cover....


Here is a shot of my favorite pens. These Frixion Erasable Gel Pens are fabulous!  Like I said before, I am not a fan of my handwriting so a lot of erasing happens in this planner.  Click HERE to get a set for your own!  :)
