Getting Organized For Summertime!
Getting Organized For Summertime!

Hi there, it’s Emma here! For more months now I’ve been saying I need to get organized and find a balance between, home, work and everything in between! 

I’ve decided to reorganize my ‘desk planner’, the planner that sits on my desk and is always open ready for me to scribble in. Using the Home inserts and the inserts from the last 6 months of the year I’m ready to get organized! 

I love summer, it makes me happy, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to redo my ‘desk planner’ , I’ve swapped everything over into the Mint Blossom and I’m using the Sunshine & Blue Skies Collection. First up, pockets! 

As always, I’ve simply used off cuts of the 12x12 paper and some die cuts, easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!

You can see here how I literally just draw lines around the off cuts of papers to ‘finish’ them!

For the dashboard I chose to pick out the coral colour to coordinate with the inside of the Mint Blossom planner, I used the 6x4 card from the snap pack and layered it up with papers from the 6x8 paper pad. 

...and again I drew around the edges of each layer, which just makes them ‘pop’! 

I love how the Home inserts come with dividers, stickers and even the pocket divider! I’ve sorted out all the sections and chosen stickers to label each divider, I’m actually feeling excited to get organised!!

Here’s a little look at how I’ve done one of the daily schedule pages, I’ve written A.M at the top as my plan is to have an am and a pm routine, basically, before work and after work. Then the weekends will be when I get a full house clean done and the remaining washing. ...that’s the plan! ;)

Hope you’ve enjoyed a little look at how I’m hoping to get myself organized and some balance back in my life!
