a peek inside my daily planner

I made a little bookmark for my daily planner and thought I’d show you a peek inside.

On the full calendar page I keep my birth dates, appts, work days, meetings, etc.  Then on the daily task section, I write a quote or saying that I like and doodle.  My 2010 book is filled with quotes that I have found and love. It’s my little collection and I love finding more.

I needed a way to easily open to the right day. There are already tabs for the month, so that is easy, but the weeks are a little hard to get to easily, especially since there are several blank note pages as well. So, I made a little book marker that fits right into the spiral binding. This way it won’t fall out and I wont lose it. I take this little book with me everywhere!

I made the book marker on water color paper. Interesting papers on glued on and then i painted different layers and images.  I punched holes, evenly spaced, down one side and then cut slits so that it would fit on the binding. I love opening to the right page now. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your daily planner. I love the idea of putting down doodles and quotes. I bought a daily planner this year and haven’t even cracked it open. I think I may follow your lead, and that bookmark is too cute. Happy Belated Birthday!

    You are amazing. So creative, even in your daily planner. You know, you should contemplate doing the wordaday books or the 365 Day Challenge Quilt, where you write just a little blurb on a small scrap of fabric (with fabric pen, of course) and then sew them all together into a quilt. Yours would be so beautiful!
