My Personal Planner + Giveaway

This giveaway has now ended.  Thank you to everybody who took the time to enter, I loved reading all of your comments. Please check back soon for another giveaway xx


I am a stationery geek – I love the stuff!  Pens, pencils, sticky notes, little pots of paperclips, you name it I love it, but my absolute favourites are notebooks and diaries, so when the lovely peeps at  asked me if I would like to make my own planner I jumped at the chance!

The first thing was to pick a design for the front cover.  I chose to upload a picture of my gorgeous kids, because I think they are scrumptious and I love seeing their little faces smiling back at me!

Next up was the design for the back cover, I went with a photo of Cindy’s castle that I had taken when we were in Walt Disney World a few years ago.  It’s my happy place and looking at this photo makes me smile, even on a really bad day.

I was then able to pick the design of the pages inside.  I went with pink (of course!) and four cute little birds at the top – one for each of us.  I opted to have a ‘To Do’ list at the bottom of the page, although at the moment I feel like I could do with the whole page being a to do list! I also chose a little box for idea of the week, so that I could jot down any birthday or Christmas gift ideas I had, plus any blog ideas that popped into my head too.

In the back of the planner I chose to have maps of the world, because I love maps too – plus they’ve been really handy to settle a few disputes as to where certain places are!

For my last pages I opted for blank paper because as a mum there are times when I need my kids to be really quiet, and a bit of blank paper and a pen can be a miracle in times like those.

    I think a picture of a dolphin jumping up out of the sea. As they are beautiful creatures. The water would be calm, blue. It would be nice with the sun in the background.

    I am a stay-at-home mum but I’ve just started teaching a couple of evening classes. Trying to fit in teaching, some training, prep and marking, the tutoring work I do and the admin I cover for a local charity around the kids is fun but often a tad stressful. This planner would be great for helping me to get organised (we almost forgot a birthday party the kids were invited to last weekend!) and I’d put a photo of our family at the local abbey on to make me smile and feel relaxed.
