May 2017 Planner Setup

Happy Spring, everybody! (I will continue to say it regardless of how much the pollen is trying to kill me.)

Here’s what is going on in my planner right now… a planner that is, by the way, utterly delicious. I’m currently in an A6 Pemberley Angel from Chic Sparrow, and it is amazing. Just… amazing.

All of the links to all of the goodies are below the video! Enjoy!


Here it is! All of the links to all of the goodies are below and on my website!

Agendio Planners – Customization Nirvana

Agendio Planners – Customization Nirvana

There isn’t anything I could write that would do a better job than what I said in the video, so I’m just going to put that right here for you to enjoy!

Go look at Agendio, seriously. They’re all kinds of awesome. Spiral-bound planners with lovely colors and additional little extras that make it yours. Customization and personalization of your inserts to a wonderful extent — and I don’t just mean fonts and colors (although, those are customizable as well). Your page layouts, divisions, labels, with your events and activities pre-printed onto your pages.

Yes. That good.

The first half of this video features a walk-through of the Agendio website and the customization process, and the second half features what I’m using from Agendio.

Periscope Rebroadcast: By Request: My Project Lists

Periscope Rebroadcast: By Request: My Project Lists

This was supposed to be just regarding my Project Lists, but it turned into talk of #onebookdecember, inserts from DIYFish, RogueCrusade, and PlanInk on Etsy, and the lovely Filofax Personal Original in Pillar Box Red.

(And, yes, next time I’ll record the Periscope broadcast in Landscape mode. I’ve already gotten used to just holding the phone in portrait for Periscope and didn’t even give it a thought at the time.

New Field Notes Size Planning Pages (vCarie) from DIYFish

New Field Notes Size Planning Pages (vCarie) from DIYFish

I’ve developed several bad planning habits. I’m not entirely sure how that happened, but they’re definitely habits that need to go.

Chief amongst these bad habits is that I haven’t been maintaining a Long View as far as projects are concerned. I’ve had an absolute lack of focus. Every week I go through my project lists, picking and choosing a few; this would be fine if I also completed said projects. However, I’d take the whole week to prep for those projects (namely, video projects), get bogged down with everyone else’s needs (which really can’t be avoided in The Frat House), and then I’d be planning out the next week again, sifting through my lists again… right back at The Dreaded Square One.

As it’s the beginning of the school year, I was helping two of the Frat Boys plan out their book projects for the first quarter. While we were sketching out the pages for these projects in their Field Notes notebooks, it occurred to me that something similar might help me regain the focus I’d lost and find my Long View again.

I hastily threw together a few sketches and sent them to DIYFish. What she created from those sketches is even better than I could’ve imagined.

From the epic brain of DIYFish, I give you vCarie (yes, she named it after me, even though she’s the brilliant one).
