Today, I'm sharing a few recent "before the pen" layouts in my "The Happy Planner." As I mentioned in my previous post (click here: last post ), sometimes I decorate the entire week in advance. Other times, I decorate as I go. When I'm really swamped, I do all my planning on a legal pad with no decoration at all! Ha, ha, ha!

I'm happiest when I can spend some time planning in advance and making things pretty. It keeps me motivated! Here are two layouts from the week of 2/13/17:

I use the classic size (7.75" x 9.75") planner to list "to-do" daily chores & errands. I'm still experimenting with how I want to use the mini size (5.125" x 7.5") planner. So far I've used it as a mini journal of things I want to remember about my day, and as a space to write down things I am grateful for each day.

All decorations shown on the planners are by the company, Me & My Big Ideas. I've used a combination of their pocket/journal cards, mambiCHIPS (chipboard stickers), soft spoken (3D embellishments),  and their Pocket Pages Hugs & Kisses kit. The company has a great line of  products you can use to decorate your planner, scrapbook, handmade cards, etc...
