My 2014 Planner

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.

daily drawng pageOne 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.

Blog ideas pageThe rest of the planner is full of blank pages for brainstorming, journaling, and drawing. Throughout the year I usually end up dividing these pages into  other sections as the need arises.

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.
