Plan with me: 2nd- 9th October

Morning, afternoon or evening everyone!

So, it’s Sunday morning in Greece (that’s where I am at the moment) and TTP (aka Time To Plan). I haven’t done a plan with me post for ages. So, I decided I wanted to do a rose-themed planner spread with a few stripes. You can check out my spread and download my washi strips (the big rose washi) at the end of the post if you want to recreate (or create a better spread than me 🙂 <3. I do a lot of planner reviews, so do follow my blog (check the sidebar on the left hand side) or just give my Facebook page a ‘like’ and that way you won’t miss out on my super duper posts. Oh!I am colourblind, so if the colours look random…. forgive me 🙂 So, let’s check out my spread.

ROSE themed washi Tape.jpg

I bought digital paper from the Etsy store Sybil Design (she has beautiful floral digital paper and sales at the moment).I washi-taped all the tabs and put my work schedule on the left page. I used the notes section for bills and stuff I want to check out.

My right hand side has to do with my blog stats (yeah, that part will bore you unless you are a blogger).

I blog about makeup, clothes, travelling and I buy stuff which I review/share with you, so if you like the same things as me, don’t forget to follow. Check out my September favourites  while still drinking your coffee (or tea). I think I will be doing #Blogtober which is blogging every (other) day (for me). So, stay tuned. Oh!

Plan with me: Printable and Coupon Code

Hi loves!!

This week’s post is a reverse plan with me! Yup! I am going to share a printable, an interview with an Etsy store owner, and a fantastic  coupon code, but my plan with me post will come up some time later this week cause I am out of ink (gotta be honest!). I also want to jazz things up a bit and invite you to make a spread, share it in the Facebook groups you found this post, and if I have your permission, then I will share your pics here as well(let’s be a bit more interactive , shall we?). So first of all, make sure you follow my blog (it’s as easy as giving my Facebook page a ‘like’) and let’s get down to business.

Sunflowers PIN.jpg

I ❤ sunflowers (and Van Gogh of course) and I haven’t really seen sunflower spreads, so I thought I’d buy some digital paper and make a printable. I also contacted the store owner, Tamara,  asked her if she would be willing to give my readers a coupon code (she said yes) and if she would like to answer a few of my questions. So, without further ado, let’s get this post started already!!

Let’s meet Tamara from TbL Simply Digital

I asked Tamara to tell me a bit about herself, what inspires her and

Well I am a school teacher  turned artist…..did study art in College and learned how to cut my photos and paintings on photoshop and learned to build rooms, streets then towns (you can read my bio about that) and also at the end of my shop it tells what inspires me like light and color. My digital papers are an extension of my clip art, making a design out of them, usually repeating the design and saving the pattern and using really good background papers to put the pattern on. My Van Gogh one was an extension of my love of impression and post impression as well as all things French, Italian, and anything from the UK. I have traveled a lot and love to express recently in my art around the world of my experiences from lots of traveling almost around the world.. I am really a lover of color and light. I am still fairly new as a shop starting August 21, 2015 and have been (knock on wood) fairly successful of what I really LOVE to do.

My Printable

4 full boxes and 4 half pic/ half white. The dimensions are: height 1.5 and width 2.5 inches (I have the happy planner with the heart).

Sunflowers

So, this is the printable and you can download it below.

Sunflower printable

Remember that your printer settings need to be at ‘fit actual size’.

The Coupon Code

You can check out Tamara’s store (and support her at this new beginning) by using this code: 20FORU (you get 20% Off)

There is a lot you can do with digital paper. You can make cards, nabbers, printables. You can use it for your printables. I even used it for documents I use for my blog. The sky is your limit. You can also find printables in Tamara’s store and make posters and frames for your home decor. You can also buy clipart and use that in any way you want!!! This is a great opportunity!!

Share with me (blog feature)

Once you have downloaded the printable, used it, added your washi tape, and made everything look nice and pretty, you can share you pic under my Facebook post (where you saw this) or email me (see my about page). I will be sharing your pics at the end of May ( I hope someone decides to take me up on my offer). I am excited!!!!

This is not a sponsored post. I found Tamara’s store by chance and made a lovely new friend!

Plan with me: 4th-10th April

Hi lovelies!

Another plan with me post this week. Haven’t done one for ages cause I wasn’t really feeling it. Anyhow, today I am feeling inspired and I am using printables from the Story planner 2016 (#justjaimee) which is sold at the Lilypad. You get a dashboard, a monthly spread (small boxes), loads of stickers for your weekly spreads, clip art, half boxes and checklists etc.

❤ My spread

I like the spread because it is colourful and looks as if spring is going to jump out of the pages. So, here is my weekly spread.

Bri.jpg

It is quite minimal because I do not know my work schedule yet. I am planning a trip to the UK, so some of my check list stuff is on this spread.

So, there you have it. This week’s spread.

*The pens in the pictures are from Amazon and you can get them here.

What are you doing today? How about making a time capsule?

Hi mummies!

I am not a mommy blogger, but I did post a blog post about something similar on my edu blog and thought I’d pop onto here for a very quick post.

Today is February 29th and I thought it would be a cool idea to make a time capsule with your kids. You could even make it a whole family time capsule.

What do you need?

A box (you can use a cardboard box and decorate it with your kids. They can draw on it, stick scrapbook paper or anything they like.)

A smile

The process

Tell whoever in the family you want to be involved, to put things in a box (your time capsule) and that you will open it on February 29, 2020. They can find newspaper clippings, they can make lists of popular songs/ games/ movies (maybe even a usb stick if your kids are really high tech), chocolate rappings.  Anything! You make the family time capsule and it is stored somewhere in the house till 2020.

It would be a nice idea to video tape the whole process or take pics and keep them in the box as well!!

capsule

So, that’s all folks.

Eisenhower Matrix: plan with me

Today I did something a bit different in my planner. I used one page for my work schedule and another page for my To DOs. I used the Eisenhower matrix which is a matrix that makes you think about what you want to do but prioritise.So, you have to decide what’s important and urgent, urgent but not important and so on.  It helps you be more productive and this week I am giving it a shot. You can try this type of planning method by printing my printables.Please do subscribe to my blog if you liked what you read. It does help me out a lot (look at the sidebar on ways to follow ). So, may the planning begin ❤ ❤ .
