Planner obsessed

A new little planner shop opened in Houston, it’s called A Little Craft Place. They sell awesome washi from Japan and France, some Carpe Diem and Webster’s Pages planners. Have no idea what those words meant? I didn’t either, until my sister Kim took me to the world of planners! Let’s roll back – in 2015 I bought us these Russell+Hazel binders so we can organize our notes and calendars for Mind Speaks.

I created inserts and calendars for the binders but they were only 1 inch and we couldn’t seem to fit in everything we needed. So we used these for awhile. If you look through our Mind Speaks Instagram, you can see videos of the inserts I made.


Fast forward to September 2016. Kim’s bday – she wanted to visit the store I was describing above. As a bday gift, I got her the A5 mint. After browsing the store I noticed the other colors they had, if you know us…we are very weak with colors and matching. I ended up buying Kat and myself planners as well. It was crazy but they called out to me!! Kim got a mint A5, Kat a pink one and I got the teal.

A5 is the size I was used to with my binder but the rings hold way more! I started to work on some insert designs for the planners! The calendar pdf is free to download over here. IF you rather have the calendar and inserts printed and cut already you can get those from our etsy store over here.

So far, these planners are awesome – if you want an A5 but the Webster’s price is too much, Michael’s made some amazing A5 planners by their Recollections brand! If I didn’t buy the Webster’s I would have been all over these!! Awesome price as well – and if you get a 50% coupon with Michael’s…..BOOM! Even better!

Do any of you use planners? What is your favorite layout or set up?
