Hi everyone! I’m back with another edition of my Plan with Me posts. As I’ve said before, February may have been a short month but I’ve been so busy. I tried to keep up with my planner and making it pretty but I wasn’t as successful as I hoped to be. You can tell which weeks were busy and which weeks I spent more time planning; I’m still trying to get back into the groove of it. I actually switched back to the Erin Condren Life Planner and got the hourly layout to help with my time management. Their Life Planners were 30% off and they had a flash sale that took an extra 20% off items site-wide. Of course I couldn’t pass a deal up! So when I publish my March 2017 Plan With Me post, I’ll be using my Erin Condren Life Planner. Keep an eye out for that! Until then, let’s check out my February 2017 Plan with Me.
February 2017 Plan with Me
I got a little festive with the monthly view this month. You can never have enough glitter washi… or glitter anything! Besides the glitter and washi, the monthly view is quite bare. I only wrote down due dates, pay days, and of course, blog post topics on post-it notes. I do like how February’s monthly view turned out compared to January’s monthly view.
Just like last month, the notes page is still blank. I still have yet to figure out what I want to do with these two pages. I kind of want to turn it into a dashboard or tracker of some sort. Any suggestions?
For week 1, I started off strong with my planning. My tools typically include stickers, rubber stamps and black ink, Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens, Tombow dual brush pens, washi tape, and my current favorite — Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pen in 0.5mm.
I try to make my weekly spreads as visually appealing as possible; it makes planning more exciting. And I get to put my old scrapbooking skills to use! But obviously, I forget to plan some weeks or don’t get as decorative.
I also use my planner as an excuse to practice my brush lettering. Like they say, practice makes perfect! And if you mess up, just cover it with a sticker. ?
Week 4 of February was also very bare. But I sketched an Oscar and practiced cross hatching! Did anyone else watch the Oscars? And did anyone get pancakes?!
That’s it for my February 2017 Plan with Me post. I can’t wait to share March’s PWM! I’m thinking about filming my PWM posts starting next month but I’m still debating if I should use both my Ban.do agenda and ECLP… or just stick to one. They both have their own unique features that I enjoy.
Which planner do you want to see me use for March?
