I've been playing around with my Erin Condren Life Planner, and I think I'm starting to figure it out a little more! Though some of you may think I'm creative, let's just get this out in the open: I'm not. So, I actually did a lot of research on how other people decorated their planners, and took inspiration from them, then tried to make it look a little more me. For example, I've been really into embracing the woods and the animals in them that are around me (hence my new fox hat), so I knew I wanted to have a legit woodland theme that I haven't really seen anyone else do.
So, how did I go about doing this? First I like to put the washi tape down. I've found that I like to separate the weekend from the rest of the week (which you'll see in a later picture), and also add a strip at the bottom, separating the days from the little note section, where I like to plan my dinners.
Then, I like to think about the big events that are happening that week, and mark them off with bigger stickers so I know I won't forget to do them/go to them. These tend to be more events than 'to do' type items, like having coffee with a friend (for those of you wondering, Michelle is from Loving Life in the Grind), or group Bible Study.
Finally, I add stickers for decoration, like the fox above, or to signify more important 'To-Do' items, like helping with youth group on Wednesdays, go to church, etc. I also added a couple trees sporadically around the page, just because they looked cool.
Not going to lie, I'm not actually trying to remind myself to edit a vlog or even to take time to read with the little badger sticker below. I just really kind of like badgers. There is a story behind it, but only the people that really know me know it.
