I know it’s been a really long time since I’ve posted anything but I couldn’t believe that my last post was all the way back in March — months and months ago. Needless to say, I’ve had a lot going on, but I’m back and I thought the perfect first post would be a Happy September post on how I setup my planner for the month. I was actually planning on getting this post up over a week ago, but I am really glad I finally got it done and now I can get back into the swing of blogging 🙂
I use a Kikki K lilac personal planner, which I absolutely adore. If anyone is interested I just wanted to note that the lilac version is discontinued but there are a bunch of other lovely color options, plus new planners that are added all the time. I also use a lot of their stickers and other products for decorating my planner. You can check out all of the sweet stationery goodies over at the Kikki K website.
Most months I usually use a piece of patterned paper for the top of the calendar and then I use a stamp set to write out the month on one side and the year on the other. This particular stamp set is also from Kikki K: the Wooden Alphabet Stamp Set. The butterfly stickers, also from Kikki K, are part of the Large Be Brave Planner Dashboard Starter Kit.
There is a better photo of the owl sticky notes, plus info on where to get them, below.
The quote card is also part of the Kikki K Be Brave Planner Starter Kit. I just realized that pretty much everything I used to decorate my September calendar is from Kikki K (except those owl sticky flags). I have a Kikki K haul post that I will write up sometime over the next couple of days so I can go into more detail about some of my most recent stationery purchases.
The little bird on the bottom is actually a cardboard cutout that was also part of the Large Be Brave Planner Dashboard Starter Kit.
These cute puffy cupcake stickers are actually from Michael’s — they are awesome and probably one of my favorite sticker sets. The only downside is that the pack didn’t come with that many in it, so I’m probably going to pick up some more on my next Michael’s trip.
The last decorative piece to my September 2015 calendar are these adorable little owl sticky flags that I found at Barnes & Noble. They are so perfect for many uses — like marking a page, making a little note on my calendar, marking something with the arrow of the note, etc. — and this pack came with 180 sticky markers so it will be awhile before I run out of them. They also come in six different colors and they were pretty cheap — only $3.95 at Barnes & Noble. You can click this link to buy them online.
I love decorating and organizing with my planner so I will be updating at least once every week with a new weekly view and, of course, once a month with each new month. Thanks for reading!
