If you follow me on instagram then you've seen the Botanical Garden, Happy Planner, that I shared and I bought online within Australia from, HERE. BUT it's not the first happy planner I bought. How did this idea all come about? I love walking, in winter I slacked off, like a lot, like my cheat day lasted all winter and winter seemed to go into Spring. When the weather picked up I was back into it daily. Some days I didn't want to, others I couldn't wait, I made myself go daily. Podcasts are my best friend for this reason. But I wanted to keep myself accountable, and so came the Mini Happy Planner for Fitness, HERE. I actually ordered the Fitness planner first but it was on back order and was here when I returned from our holiday. In fact can I give a BIG shout out to Scrap Boutique. Amazing service and based in Australia, HERE.
I'm sort of in love with the fitness planner. It's small and compact yet has everything I personally need. I dropped off the wagon a bit over Christmas and with just not long getting back from our Summer holiday. But I had been keeping a strict eye on what I was eating, the amount of water I was drinking and my blood pressure in general. This planner is going to help me keep accountable, set goals, bet them and get a general idea on my eating habits. The stamp set peek you see is my design and one of two coming in 2017.
I tried really hard to resist buying the Botanical Garden planner, but then Scrap Boutique had a sale and I caved, plus it's stunning. I mean a bargain is a bargain, am I right? I've now started the class over at Big Picture Classes taught by the QUEEN of Happy Planners, Amanda, HERE. My plan is to use the planner as a memory planner of sorts. I am FOREVER behind in project life. As of last night I'm currently 14 weeks behind in my 2016 album. I'm now working on catching up, but while I do that my 2017 album will already be behind. Catch 22. My plan is to take a little time each night or mid week and print/write/stamp and keep little bits of the month in The Happy Planner. If you are thinking about or doing this for the first time, I HIGHLY recommend taking the class by Amanda. I've started it and already blown away and not at all overwhelmed like I can be at times with new projects/ideas.
Do you have a Happy Planner?
