My Planner arrived today and...it's perfect!! I love everything from the pretty cover to each detailed page. The paper is thick so I can use my Sharpie pens without worrying they will bleed through. It was obviously created with great care and attention- thank you!

I can not say enough how much I LOVE these planners. They are everything I want in a planner and more. I ordered a second planner as a Christmas gift for my mom because I loved mine so much and she is loving hers as well!!

This planner is AMAZING!!! I'm so happy I ordered it, in fact I just ordered a second one for my mom since I love mine so much! I can never find a planner that has everything I want, but this one does!
Modern Life Defined
I've always been a notebook and planner junkie. Always. From a child to now, not much has changed. Paper has always been my medium of choice. After years upon years of buying planners and using them 1/3 of the way and then discovering a new one I loved more I decided to bite the bullet and create my own.
I researched hard and long about this process. Not just about how I wanted the inside designed, but about the logistics. Did I want these planners made 3rd party in a different country which would drop the price to make the notebooks down to next to nothing? Or did I want to find a way to make them locally or by hand or a mix of both? In the end I weighed the pros and con, the integrity of what I wanted to put out there and decided to use a mix of both handmade and local, which would increase the price to make the item, but would give me peace of mind and the ability to really say my product was made in the USA.
I wanted to create a lifestyle planner that could appeal to the modern women. The ability to plan out the day, save yourself some sanity and have an idea of what dinner will be before dinner time arrives, and a place to be able to track spending.
I have always had a love of quotes. Words speak to my soul so deeply and I wanted a way to share the quotes I love so much. Everyday of the week (minus the weekend) has a quote that should either lift you up, or require some introspective thinking.
Having a balanced budget is essential for being able to manage ones money and to be able to stay out of debt, or least to begin digging out of debt. It was important to me that every month had a section where one could balance their budget and be able to visualize with a hard copy their expenses. I believe having something tangible like that that you can constantly review makes one more aware of their spending habits.
One of the hardest parts about making this planner was going through the downsizing. This planner was originally so thick and bulk it would have caused strain on anyone's back! I wanted to do very thick pages, but because I have so many pages I had to go more middle of the road. Something that was thicker than basic printer paper, but not as thick as cover copy paper. I had so many wonderful goodies in this planner that I had to take out. I had to take them out because the custom spiral coils that would have to be used to handle that much paper looked so large and out of place. Making cuts on what goes and what stays is hard and in a way requires a cut throat approach. The good news is that some of the things that got cut out will be used in future planner designs.
I'm new on this journey of creating planners and I have so many ideas on how I want to take my love of notebooks and planners and create amazing products for all of you!
With a degree in business and a love for making things I can often be found in my craft room designing something or brainstorming ideas. I am married to the most supportive man I could ever wish for and am mom to 3 energetic kids.
