planner decorating // a fresh start
Sometimes with no warning, life knocks you off your feet. And you're left to pick yourself up, brush off the dirt, and keep heading down your path.
I've been working on doing the things I love, to aid the process of picking myself back up. I've been sick in bed all week so that has given me an excuse to take a much needed break from work and do the things that really make me happy. Although I usually like to heal my body naturally, there comes a point where you just need a little extra help. So as my new stock of medicine the doctor gave me is helping heal my body, I am working on healing my spirit. I'm sorry I'm keeping this vague, just know I am healing.
The first step to a fresh start can be as simple as buying yourself a new planner. I found this one at Target, and was inspired by Abby's beautiful planner to start decorating my own.
I gathered together some of my favorite craft supplies and sat in bed while I started decorating my planner.
I like the idea of treating my planner like a scrapbook that I can look back on and enjoy even after it's all filled up. I taped in the wrapper of a new tea I tried this week, included a note that my sweet cousin Jade gave me, and wrote in random thoughts from my days (since they weren't too eventful spent all day in bed).
I started planning out next week, leaving some blank space so I can continue adding little pieces from my days.
This planner is the perfect way to stay creative everyday, even if I don't have much time to craft. I'm excited to continue decorating it, and see what it turns into!
Wishing you all lots of peace and love
