Pretty Planner Party

For the last two years, I have thrown a Pretty Planner Party for a group of friends that enjoy crafting and planning in their planner as much as I do.
We get together and enjoy good & wholesome association, we share washi tape, stickers, coloring pencils, tips and tricks, etc.

Typically I hold the party at a public place but this year I was fortunate enough to host the party at someone’s home which gave me a chance to decorate and plan a menu. I bought the majority of my decorations at The Dollar Tree and 99 Cents Only Store and I highly recommend these two stores if you are ever planning any type of party.

Here are a few pictures I took:

This was my third year hosting the Pretty Planner Party and I feel like this was the best year so far.

I’m very grateful for the turnout and everyone who brought a dish and supplies to share!

Processed with MOLDIV

  • Received an e-mail stating that my LDC application was approved.
  • Planned and hosted the second annual Pretty Planner Party.

What did you do this month?

Spiritual Planner

A few of the goals I’d like to accomplish this year is to be better equipped while in the ministry, deepen my love for Jehovah with my personal study, and comment more during meetings.

Instead of carrying journals for each separate category, I decided I would combine them all in one.
(Before I deleted my Instagram, there was a follower of mine who inspired me to create this spiritual planner so I would like to give her credit and you can find Kassandra here.

After looking at quite a few planners I decided to go with the, Creative Year Solid Planner By Recollections from Michael’s.
I purchased this planner in the Metallic Ivory color.

Inside the planner, there were three different tabs with blank pages, graph paper, and to-do lists.

While the inside is nice, I still wanted to customize the planner so I added a few things.

My add ins: Peppa Pig stickers, House to House Records, Field Service Reports, Invitations, reusable tabs, a JW card, a bookmark from the 2014 International Convention, post it notes, and a pen.

It’s nothing extraordinary but it’s enough to keep me organized in the ministry and be prepared if I happen to find myself doing informal witnessing.

I decided to add a little extra to my dividers so I spruced them up with some washi tape.

Remember my categories:

  • Meetings
  • Personal
  • Service

I also wanted to add some color to my dividers so I found some scrap-booking paper and punched holes in the paper to align with my dividers.
I also found this gold Recollections hole puncher at Michael’s.

I also added washi tape to the scrap-book paper to make it look nicer.

I purchased some journal inserts as well and they can be found here.
