I am on a quest for organization. And I realized that there is one thing that could be considered central to organizing my life that I have been neglecting. Using my planner. A couple years ago, I started using a small 3-ring binder as a planner, with different tabs for different categories. It was one place that I could jot down anything and everything. I actually used it a lot, until the front cover fell off... Eventually I bought a new, sturdier binder, shoved everything inside, and it's only been minimally used ever since. And it needed a makeover!
I decided to start out with a little update to the exterior. Maybe if it's cute, I'll use it more?! :)
So I gathered a few supplies: scrapbook paper, stickers, and a paper cutter.
The process was pretty simple... measure the areas where I would be inserting the paper, cut the chosen papers to size, add stickers, insert the prettiness into the appropriate places. Tada!
I wiped it down, too. Not sure what the nastiness was that was splattered all over it... :-S She sure is pretty now, though, huh?
How about a couple detail shots... taken with my new camera that I barely know how to use.
The Before & After:
A little bit of pretty can make a big difference. :) I love my "new" planner. Now I need to overhaul the inside...
p.s. My binder is this one from Staples. There are a variety of colors available in store.
