A simple look at my before the pen spread for July 29 – August 4, 2019. A blog version of a Plan with Me… sorta.
I’m here to share my Before the Pen in my Big Happy Planner with you and my thought process on this particular spread.
I’m still getting comfortable back in my Big Happy Planner again after a brief hiatus with the Classic Happy Planner. Planning is easy, but decorating isn’t always. I feel like I do too much, so this week, I went really simple because I have a lot going on.
This entire spread, started with these flower stickers. I love florals, especially in soft colors like these. I thought they were bright while still being on the soft size and I love the colors. I wanted to keep the colors simple so I only chose a few.
Through the week, I will be adding boxes as events happen or come up. I will share the After the Spread on Sunday.
I get a lot of questions about the food titles on my planner pages.
I am a food blogger and recipe developer. So my job consists of either making food I feel like sharing ‘just because’ (food blogger) or working with brands to create recipes using their products (recipe developer). If you want to check out my recipes: Daily Dish Recipes.
This particular week we are having a Back to School Treats week, so I have a few recipes I made for the event. The days that the recipe title appears, are the days that they will go live on the other blog.
You can always search the blog for the title if it’s after the fact and buried.
I fill in as I go, because that is easiest for me. Sticky notes are my best friend and what you can’t see, is that just off to the side on the right is a rather large pile of them. I have a lot going on this week.
I’m a very functional planner if you haven’t figured that out already.
