Today mambi Design Team member Jen Randall is talking to us about the first month using her new Create 365™ Happy Planner™, what's inspired her, and how her process has been.
On her inspiration for these pages, Jen writes:
"I am completely new to the whole planner world. With that being said, I am super excited that The Happy Planner™ system is so user friendly. I want to be organized, but I don't always have a lot of time to sit down and actually do the planning. All the stickers, add ons, and stickies make it so easy. The products themselves inspire me to plan my little heart out creatively. Not only are Create 365™ products inspirational, but my fellow Design Team girls have been on planning fire! For someone who has not really taken out a planner in YEARS, following the lead of these incredible ladies really helps."
About her process, Jen writes:
"I really didn't want this planning process to become too overwhelming. With SO much fantastic products to use, I really needed to find a way to simplify. To do that, each week I choose a few colors to focus on and tried to use just those colors. Not only did it make my page less chaotic, but it eliminated the stress of too many choices!"
"At the beginning of the month, I use the monthly calendar to write down anything going on (birthdays, events, practices, games) that I already know about. Then each week, I go a little more in depth. I didn't go back to the month and add things, but rather focused on the weeks with more detail."
