Planner Peace...Does it Exist?

Ever heard of planner peace? Ever experience it?

I have been planning my whole life but in the last 3 and a half years I have fallen down some type of rabbit hole called the planning community. I have loved and am loving every second of it. 

In the planning community there has been a lot of talk of "planner peace."

What is that you may ask?

Planner peace is when you are at peace and have no desire to change your current planner or setup. For most people this is very easy to achieve because they have found what works for them. The rest of us are still searching for what works for us. 

Now you can have planner peace even if it only lasts for a day. You have found peace for one whole day. Maybe a whole month or maybe you change hourly. (There's a planner for that😝)

No matter how long it lasts for, it counts. 

Now let's talk about my planner peace or lack thereof. 

I started planning in 2015 after my mom, Lisa, told me about Erin Condren! I immediately started searching the internet and before I knew it I had a brand new Erin Condren Life Planner in my hands. This was perfect. Perfect horizontal layout and soon after I was scouring Etsy for the perfect sticker kit. Added in some washi and my planner layout was done. 

Soon after, Kikki.K was the next big planner I had to have. I spent quite some time in a personal rings Kikki K. From there it was a Michael's Recollections planner, Michael's zippered planner and not before long I had my very first Foxy Fix. Let's also not forget that while I was trying all of these planners, I still had my trusty Erin Condren at all times. 

Foxy Fix number one was a pocket wide Sugar Icing. This was perfect and went everywhere with me. I could throw it in my purse and it was the perfect size. I really enjoyed using this planner and it definitely helped me to figure out the type of setup that I was happy with. 

From there I went to another pocket wide in Sugar Cookie. Then came a B6 in Sugar Cookie. Then in December of 2017, Foxy Fix announces they are releasing personal rings. Well of course I had to have it!

I ordered the day that they came out and after the long anticipated wait, I had a Foxy Fix Personal Rings in the beautiful new spice saffron leather. 

I have been customizing this planner for 8 months now I think that I can say I have found semi planner peace. That's kind of the same thing...right?

Anyway, I love this planner and I still have and use my Erin Condren vertical Life Planner. I have also tried pocket rings. But these last 8 months I have used the personal rings and the ECLP consistently. Well semi consistently. We all know how that goes!

So planner peace? Have I found it? Sort of!

I am happy planning and that is what's most important!!

What about you? I'd love to know!

New Releases

Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since my last post. I am trying to get back into creating more blog posts. Here is my attempt to start up my blog again.

Being sick is no fun but does make for a lot of down time. I put that down time to good use tonight and created some adorable images for my Etsy shop. I released quite a few images and wanted to share them with all of you here. I am also hosting a giveaway on my Instagram, @prettypaperpieces4u. Go check it out if you have a minute!

The new releases just went live tonight and I have posted a picture of a few of them at the bottom of this post. I really hope that you enjoy these new die cuts that I have created. I can't wait to see them in all of your planners!

Also head on over to the Facebook page and join for more fun and announcements!

Remember to tag me if you post your goodies on Instagram!

Thank you all for stopping by and reading my post today! Hope you are all doing well and those in the path of Hurricane Florence are staying safe. Thoughts and prayers to those in that path right now.

See you all again soon!
