I hope everyone is well today! For those of those of you who celebrate it, I hope you had a fantastic Easter and long weekend!
Back in October last year the lovely folks at Mimo Pencil Case Shop sent me a huge parcel of products to review! (You can ready my review here and check out the Mimo Pencil Case Shop here) Back then I said I wanted to make the planner into something I could use for inspiration and motivation too as well as giving making it my own!
Today I’m happy to announce that I’ve done just that! I’ve created something I love and has a lot of fun and colour to it whilst still being practical. Here you can see that I’m making full use of the card slots in the planner – I’ve used some for my business cards, a couple for the garage and one for a Rilakkuma card I had – I’ve also used the bigger slot at the back to store appointment cards and some sticky notes! I’ve even added in the sweet note from the owner of MPCS – It’s just such a cute note! My personal details are on the sheet behind this – I careful removed this from an old Rilakkuma planner I had and it seemed a shame not to use it again!
On the next page I’ve used some stickers to brighten up a blank sheet – and here’s the first of my custom dividers! I’m so proud of these – they’re postcards I’ve collected and cut down to fit – postcards are just the perfect width for these planners! I love this one in particular as the top bird is on a little spring that wobbles about.
I’ve used one of the kawaii paperclips to hold the first divider for month views to the current month – this was I can keep previous month to refer back on with out having to sort through lots of pages to find the current month – this little heart fits in perfectly.
Here’s one of my month views – it’s really fun to draw in little doodles, they also brighten up the pages – I’ve used stickers in places too! I added in some kawaii note papers on each of the month views for any extra little notes.
I made a couple of my own little book marks for the planner too – this one is a cute little Totoro – I had a lot of fun making these and will most likely make more of them.
Here’s the custom divider for weeks – I thought this one was quite bright and fun.
I’ve used the weeks sections to go into more detail on anything I need too and make extra notes on addresses and things I need to remember for appointments. There’s also another little bookmark of Usagi from Sailor Moon.
A custom dividers for addresses and the to-do lists
I’ve lined up and hole punched some kawaii note papers to use in my planner too – this way I can add in cute extra pages in weeks or months if I need to.
I’ve used a clear zip file here to store photos and pictures I like (Check out Harry looking super grumpy/unimpressed!)
Finally in the back I keep super useful page markers (I use these in my favourite recipe book!) and some extra daily schedule sheets – these are useful for making notes at work.
So there you go! I am absolutely loving my gorgeous planner and will be using it for a long time to come! I’m still thinking of other ways to customise it and add to the cuteness! Do any of you have any fun tips for things I could add into the planner? Let me know in the comments below!
Ta-ta for now,
