Planning has really become my current creative outlet. I've been into Erin Condren planners for a few years now but have finally reached planner peace with the Erin Condren Horizontal Neutral. I've tried all three setups, the vertical layout, horizontal layout, and hourly layout. The horizontal layout just works for me. I would love to share my spreads each week, for the week before, to show everything fully completed and filled out, with much more detail than is shown in Instagram.
This last week, February 27th through March 5th, is a super girly
planner week. I got this kit from The Glam Planner on etsy and
immediately used it. It's a pink princess theme with accents of black
in the dragons, crown, and castle. It does have accents of red, a color
that doesn't thrill me in the slightest, but pink definitely is the
overwhelming force in this spread.
I stopped posting my filled out spreads on instagram for privacy
reasons, but this way works much better. This week wasn't too eventful,
but we did travel up to Chicago over the weekend for the hubby's
birthday. We got to spend time with his family on Saturday and had a
fun pizza party at this brother's.
I like to think of each day in four sections, just like the vertical
layout without the separation. The left column is usually reserved for
work and one really important thing going on in the day. The second
column is reserved for my to-do list. I've really been drawn to simple
checklists instead of the checklist boxes. The third section is for
appointments or other semi-big things going on during the day and the
fourth section has the full boxes.
Clearly I like a good mix of white space although I've found that too
much white space also bothers me....because that makes some kind of
weird sense. I'll usually fill out too much white space with decorate
stickers if the day hasn't been too eventful.
Overall I really like the look of this spread. I can't predict if I'll
like the week until the end when everything is filled out. Glam Planner
kits are historically some of my favorite spreads, although she does
seem to use alot of red in her stickers, especially in the monthly
What was your planner theme for last week? Did you like how it turned out?
