Artsy-Fartsy Mama: Let’s Get Organized {again}

Hopefully, everyone came back to me. I need to share the awesome planner I made today!

I printed off the planner sheets on a 2-sided setting… 8 weeks and then 52 weeks in a year… I think it was 6 or 7 copies.

3-hole punch & a 3-ring binder…

Guess what?! I’m done.

Well, except that I went to put it in my purse, and it was a no-go.  Since my other half already calls my purse a “satchel” I decided I needed to downsize. Men just don’t get it… {along with having the same shoe in 4 colors.} So I went back to the figurative drawing board.

I’m not really very tech-savvy. Like, at all. I’m impressed with myself for blogging with so few failures disasters hiccups. So after entirely too much time figuring out how our printer/copier/scanner/fax/panini maker {ok, that’s a small exaggeration, but still}  works, I was able to make a planner that was half the size of the original. I can’t explain the process very well, but I selected 2-sided print as well as combine pages to get two weeks on each side of the page. After that, I just cut the pages in half with my best friend & handy helper, the office paper cutter. Then for the cover, I pulled a Coke box from recycling, and got to cuttin’.  I used the lamination-thingy {it’s a technical term} and sent my covers through. Now, I have a dry/wet erase friendly cover for my planner. Hole punch and the little circle rings {made out of paperclips and boredom} and she’s all finished!


Hope everyone gets a chance to do something they love this week. I’ll be linking up here with more people who love what they do.
