Goal Setting, II

If there's one thing I learned about myself in 2016 is that paper organization is the way to go. All creatives know that it's easy to bounce from project to project or get caught up in the latest trends. So when I purchased my Plum Paper Planner in the fall of 2015, I honestly wasn't sure if paper planning was just my latest project, or if it would truly stick around as my main method of organization. Within a few months, I was swept up in the world of planner stickers, binders, stamps, etc. I purchased a lovely raspberry colored Filofax to house my planner; it would also allow me to add or take things away as needed. For 2017, I'm keeping with the planner train - but downsizing slightly. The A5 size planner was a little large to carry with me, so I'm swapping it out with a personal size. Since I loved the vertical layout of the PPP, the Erin Condren, and the Happy Planner, and I wanted to be able to use all those stickers I've purchased, the SewMuchCrafting planner inserts were the no-brainer choice. Little did I know the paper was butter smooth and the ink doesn't bleed through to the other side. Now, with a few other accessories, both for fun and function, I'm all set to tackle this year in a super organized way.
