Today we're sharing this Happy Planner™ bundle mambi Design Team member Mary-Ann Maldonado is planning on gifting to her son's new teacher, and with it has single-handedly altered mambi's "live creatively" motto to be "GIVE creatively." (That works too!)

About this project, Mary-Ann writes:
"My idea was to set up Roman's teacher with all of the supplies she may need to get her through the school year. I started by gathering the months of September through June. I should have included July because last year we went until the end of June with all the snow days. Who knows what will happen this year!
I grabbed a couple of folders, sheets of paper, sticky notes, notepad, pens and stickers to embellish the planner. I placed a large sticker on acetate for the front cover. That way, if she wants to change or just use the gold polka dots, she can easily remove it."
"I decided to decorate the first month for her for two reasons. One: the first month has got to be ridiculously crazy, and two: just in case she has never planned the way us planner addicts do, it gives her an idea!
I wrote her a quick note for when she opens to the first month. Am I hoping this gets my son brownie points? NO. I would NEVER!!! Well, maybe just a little. Imagine receiving this as a gift from a parent?! I would love it. Maybe she will like me enough to invite me in to volunteer. They don't do that much around here as they get older."
In conclusion, Mary-Ann writes:
"I know it is hard to part with these pretty planners, but because it will help my child if his teacher is organized, I don't mind sending it off.
The pens I included were the Paper Mate Flair. They do not bleed through the paper and do not smudge. Win win!"
Live & give creatively!
