~Quilter’s Planner 2018 – How does this planner work? Review~
Are you a planner? Do you like to keep track of your creative ideas? Do you work or have a series of weekly obligations you need to keep track of? I am all of those things, plus a few more. Each year I work on a new daily calendar. Sink time, money and lots of energy into getting it just right. This year, I decided to give the Quilter’s Planner 2018 a chance. Let’s take a closer look
Last year – 2016
There were a few things I had on my yearly goals list. One was to blog more! Before I could do that though, there was a series of things I needed to prepare in order to plot out my goal. Top of the list was to get organized and for that I needed a planner. Not the digital ones or small little dollar store calendars. I needed to be organized and have tabs with places to fill out important information. Personally I am one of those folks who needs to write things down to make them real, pen to paper so to speak.
I went to Target and bought a fancy binder with page protectors, paper, pretty page dividers and some pretty stickers. Total cost was around $40 and then I had to print and assemble it all ($15 worth of ink). On top of that, I had to buy Calendar sheets from Etsy ($5) and create my own planning pages (3+ hours). Assuming my time was free I still invested $60 cash into my planner. I made a lot of mistakes and had to re-print a lot. There was a moment I sat there and questioned why I was putting so much effort into this. The answer, I needed to have a place where all my personal, work and creative content could remain. I am glad I spent the time, I am glad I put in the effort, I wasn’t happy about the money but really – it did end up working.
This year (2017)
The new year is fast approaching. Just a few weeks until 2018. Seriously, to say two-thousand and eighteen out loud makes my brain hurt. I remember when I thought I would never get out of high school or graduate collage or have a baby. These things all did come true and the saying, “All good things are worth waiting for” is true, but just the year 2018 sounds space age to me, smiling.
This year, or I should say next year, I don’t want to spend the time or energy creating what I know is already out there and finished for me. That is what got me looking at the Quilter’s Planner 2018 calendar. It is more than just a list of days, weeks and months. It really has so much more to offer the creative individual inside me.
Looking inside the Quilter’s Planner 2018
Watch the video
First off I want to point out the cover is lovely! Just beautiful and full of life, designed by Allison Glass.
You will notice the calendar is set up from Monday to Sunday. A new way of thinking for me, but it was explained that this system works great if your life revolves around family and not necessarily around work. This system keeps the weekend days together vs. apart.
At the end of each month is a coloring sheet. My goal will be to color a little each time I am in front of my calendar. What will your goal be?
The tabs are beautiful and durable. Not flimsy at all.
There are lots of places to draw, be creative and color.
Stickers!! Four pages of coordinating stickers are in the back of the Quilter’s Planner along with pocket. So funny how this makes me happy but seriously I love the pocket.
