Blogmas 16 … Starting to plan 2018

New Year is coming, time for a new agenda !

 

Digital or Paper one?

In times everybody is using a diary/agenda on their phone or by mail, I still like to use a PAPER one.

Specially for me a digital agenda doesn’t work. On my iPhone I have to click on a day to see what I have planned for that week. I just can’t see al my plans for every day of the week in one view.

I’m a visual girl, I have to see what I have to do for the next days. In that way I can get plans in my head of how I’m going to handle that week. Oh, and be prepared of all the things that are coming to me.

The most important thing about an agenda for me is the way how it looks inside. The outside is less important, because you can make it look better all the time (in the style you want).

Little black one for 2018

A few weeks ago I bought a little agenda (between an A5 and A6 size), a plain black one. I bought it in a Dutch store called Action. It’s a cheaper store,  kind of the dollar store you have in the USA. This agenda I’m going to use next year was less than 2 EUR.

I have a good view over all the days of the week. The only thing I like less, is that the days of the weekend are so smal. For a girl who works on Saturday and Sunday, that’s a big disadvantage.

Let’s make it MINE!

Just a plain black one, that’s just to plain and to classic for me. I bought this agenda with the idea of making it look better.

Here is my agenda and pens I used to create the look of my agenda and fill it in. Oh yeah I have a lot of things to do in January!

Black is just black … so making it more TRENDY and CLASSY with gold on the paper endings

So when my agenda is closed, I have a black and gold one instead of a normal black and white one.

After working on the outside, it was time to work on the inside

During the year I will add more stamps to it when I find cute ones to try.

Now it was time to fill in my plans and appointments for January. But first my personal information page (sorry will not show this all filled in).

Now let’s write down my plans and appointments

Here’s my finished project for now. As I told you, I will add more and more things during the year. I collect all kind of things in my agenda/diary like pictures, clothes tags, pieces of bags, buttons, stickers, etc. Really everything you can collect and paste on your pages it’s in there.

Please note : I keep every agenda I’m using, so I still have my agenda from the first year I started to work in 2007. Great momories, that I keep this way.  So it’s like just a normal photobook, diary etc for me to keep forever in my life.

And you ?

Do you like a digital agenda/diary or a paper one?  If you use a paper one, how does it looks?

Thanks for reading ! Love Lucy xx
