The Erin Condren Life Planner

So I have taken the plunge.  I did it.  I've been looking (drooling) at the Erin Condren life planner for over a year now.  When I was looking for an editorial calendar for my blog I looked at these but couldn't justify the price for blog use only.  But I came back to them recently and I decided to get one.  Not really for my blog but just for my life in general.  As you can see from the above picture, the presentation of this planner is so pretty!  I love the design of the box and tissue paper inside tells me I'm about to open an awesome product.  The picture on the far left is the cover I chose and my name.  The bands and markers are sold separately.

I'm so glad I did it!  I am in love!  No really...I am.  It sounds strange, but I love all things stationary and this thing is pretty sweet.  It may seem like an ordinary planner but it's not.
Target has cute stuff for planners!
 I've had fun buying things for my planner (don't tell my husband!).  I've found cute stuff at Target, Michael's, AC Moore and Hobby Lobby.  Etsy shops make cute stickers and accessories too!

My planner buddy is AWESOME!
In the EC (Erin Condren) world of planners, you can join facebook groups.  These women are so creative and I get inspiration from them.  You can also sign up for a planner buddy (like pen-pal in the OLD days LOL).  My planner buddy is from New York and she sent me a box full of goodies!  I was in shock.

My first week with my life planner
There is definitely a technique.  I know this sounds cRaZy to all that do not get the planner thing.  There are so many ways to decorate.  I like to use mine as a creative outlet.  I use the note pages in the back as an art journal.

My favorite song lyrics
My favorite Bible verses
Another picture of my planner - like my OMG sticker?  hehe

I actually have a EC planner that I used for 2014 but think I'm going to try a different one for 2015. I liked it, and the colors are so pretty, but I didn't find the layout to be perfect for me. I didn't like my days being separated into morning, afternoon, and night. They are pretty though!!

Wow - what a great variety of options. I started a simpler planner a few months ago and I love it too! Thanks for the ideas!

I know that you mean! I used the blank stickers in the back of the planner (cut in half) to cover the MDN boxes! Works perfectly!

You're welcome! It's amazing how some stickers & washi tape can change the look of a boring piece of paper. :)
