Happy Wednesday y’all!
I see so much negative talk about pretty planners on social media. And I used to contribute to it. I’d judge photos and even leave snarky comments. Yikes. Hard to admit, but true. Why? I have no idea. I just remember feeling so judgy about it.
Why do you NEED so many planners? (I used to be guilty of this one and it makes me cringe- so sorry for saying this in a snarky way on one of our your photos years ago, Christy Tomlinson). Um, because I feel like it? They bring me joy and I trade the covers out like handbags? Shrug.
Why do grown women need stickers in their planners? What is this 7th grade? Again…because I feel like it. No one sees it but me and who the heck cares? It’s not like I’m sitting in a board meeting on Wall Street. It’s therapeutic to me.
What is it with this planner craze anyway? Here’s the gist of it. I enjoy decorating my planner because it’s my only creative outlet right now, and it combines my two favorite things…list making and scrapbooking. It’s a fine line between pretty and functional, though. And one I’m still learning how to balance!
Decorating your planner isn’t that different from a notebook or a scrapbook page. DO WHATEVER MAKES YOU HAPPY.
WHY THE HELL NOT? Go for it!
If you are a simple list + highlighter girl, rock those highlighters. Or, cover every freaking inch of the page in stickers. WHO CARES? TREAT YO SELF. Play! Have fun!
If you feel like making a page that looks like Mean Girls exploded all over it, knock yourself out. See a theme here?
You’ll never know what you do or don’t like unless you try.
And if you think paper planners are stupid and you put everything in your phone then AWESOME. You do you, boo.
So what do you think? Would you ever decorate your planner?
