I love the smell of new year. Well, really I mean the smell of a new planner full of blank pages waiting to be filled with plans that include road trips, date nights, and all the events that chronicle a life. I think I will always carry a planner despite the advance of technology. For me it's half diary, half calendar. It is a record keeper and dreamer.
I have been dabbling in book binding so I decided to make my own planner this year. The inserts I purchased from droplet over at Etsy. She sends you a file with three different ways to use the inserts. They are perpetual so you can use them year after year. I used her third option which is for binding.
The cover is somewhat of a blank slate on purpose. I end up carrying this with me everywhere and by the end of the year it will be filled with doodles, notes, stamps, stickers, and love letters. I left for room for what is to come.
I used a coptic stitch to bring it all together. It's easy for a beginner but my work is still a little sloppy. I used this video for instruction.
How do you keep track of your year?
