My favorite part about beginning a new year has always been the starting of a new planner. However, I found that throughout the year, I was actually managing 3 different books, a planner, a journal, and a sketchbook. So, last year I decided to make one large blank book to use for all three. Instead of trying to keep track of 3 books, I now can easily log everything into one book.
This is the planner that I crafted for 2014.
One of my goals for 2014 is to practice the discipline of drawing something everyday. It doesn’t matter what I draw, or how large it is. After each calendar page there is a page spread full of squares for me to draw inside daily.
I love that I have the ability to create a planner that is crafted specifically for my needs. Last year I appreciated having just one place to keep all of my thoughts. I used the planner throughout the entire year, which says a lot for it’s usefulness, since before I usually ended up abandoning whatever method of organization I was attempting to use. It will be fun to see how much the book changes by the end of the year.
