Wish List

So far these kits on Etsy have caught my eye… Links are under the shop names 🙂

Inspirational Quotes

pgcinspirationalquotes

This is my second post in collaboration with Planner Girls Collective – a group of like minded planner girls who will be blogging each week on the same subject and then linking to each others posts afterwards.

This weeks Planner Girls Collective post is about inspirational quotes.  At first I didn’t think I really had any quotes to share apart from my secondary dashboard that used to reside in my Temperley for Filofax Ikat Compact wallet and now lives behind my main dashboard and separates my information sheet from the rest of my planner inserts.

This is an Oscar Wilde quote which I have loved for years and found in a Tiffany Jewellery catalogue in 2015.  I cut it out and punched it and it has happily sat behind a clear dashboard in my Temperley for the past year.  I  moved it over to my Filofax Malden in Kingfisher blue when I set it up, the color almost matches!  This quote reminds me to embrace my creative side and either be a creative being and make my life a beautiful place – “be a work of art”, or dress creatively and embrace the quirky fashion sense and accessories that I like “wear a work of art” and to never be afraid to be unique.

I have a diary that I bought for planning my blog posts that has this on the front of it

which always makes me smile.  I didn’t really make any resolutions at the beginning of the year but evaluated what I love doing and how I could be better at that, and blogging was one of them.  I currently run 2 blogs that are active (this one and https://tenthousandsteps2016.wordpress.com ) and decided that I wanted to blog more regularly and this diary was chosen for that front!  It reminds me that in order to succeed I need to plan, and to plan I need to write down and schedule things!  This diary has a schedule of all my blog posts mapped out for the whole year and, so far, I am sticking to that schedule!

Other quotes that I find inspirational are

img_9332-1

This quote reminds me that the whole earth is alive and that the trees and plant life are at the very heart of this life – they provide our oxygen and without them then we would ease to exist.  It puts everything into perspective for me, and sometimes, when everything gets too much, a walk into the woodland can realign my thoughts and calm me.

This quote is just a reminder that whatever bad happens, it can be the best thing to happen sometimes.  We learn from bad things and grow and that can make us better people and change our perspective, our attitude and our outlook.

img_9364

This quote is really relevant as I spend so much time worrying about materialistic things – money, objects, jobs, etc…it reminds me to let go, stop worrying and start living in the moment, don’t catastrophize, and stop wasting energy and time on insignificant things.

img_9363

This last quote is one of my favorites, I spent so much time last year just sorting, re-arranging and caring for belongings that are no more than objects.  This year I am trying to minimize my belongings and stop wasting time organizing them and not using or utilizing them which will give me more time to enjoy my home, friends, family and hobbies!

This Weeks Spread (for week 16 -22nd Jan)

This weeks spread is decorated using a kit from Kaye Lime Pie on Etsy.  I ordered this kit a while ago as it caught my eye with its bright fun colours and cute stationery theme.  The day/date cover up stickers are by Filofabulouss.  I chose the cover up stickers as they seemed to go well with the kit and I don’t like all the information next to the date that came printed on my inserts (Filofax cotton cream in Personal sized) and these worked perfectly to cover that information up!

So, here’s my spread for the week!!!

Here’s the end of last weeks spread for you to see, you can find the post relating to this spread here

How have you decorated your spread this week?

Don’t forget that I can be found on Instagram and Etsy !!!

Hope you have a lovely week!!! xoxox

This Weeks Spread (for week 9 – 15th Jan 2017)

img_9336

This week I chose to decorate my pages with a kit from Filofabulouss and a few stickers from a sheet by Little Rainbow Moon (the arrows on Wednesday and Sunday) which complement the feathers theme perfectly!  I have added re-cycle and shopping trolley stickers (not sure on where from originally, I received them in a RAK) to remind myself when the recycling is due out and to mark my shopping days!

For inspiration check out the hash tags #spreademwidesunday and #halfweekhumping on Instagram to see how others have decorated their planners!

How have you decorated your week?

2017 Set-Up

I saw the New Year in with my lovely personal Filofax Malden in Kingfisher blue that my boyfriend bought me for my birthday.  I had her all set up by Christmas Day for 2017.  Here’s my set up in her for this year…

Here’s a little flick through in pictures!  🙂

All inserts are from Filofax and are available here

The Dashboard and dividers were made by me!  There will be a tutorial at some point on this blog on how to make your own!  The laminated cards are from Project Life and laminated by myself, they have a use that will be revealed soon!  🙂

How have you set up your planner for the year?

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to my planner blog!  I have been away from the blog for quite some time, I have been thinking about the direction I want to take the blog in and working on a schedule of posts that I will be sharing through 2017.  The way I write my posts has changed and whereas I used to write a post as it popped into my head, I have now devised a calendar that makes sense, meaning that I will be posting more regularly, always have a topic to write about and have some structure to work with.  I feel that the way I used to post was a bit hap hazardous and I always seemed to struggle with topics to write about when thinking/writing off the cuff.

2017 will see me returning to blog more regularly, I am aiming to blog here around 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) on various topics and on a Sunday I shall be sharing the following weeks spread.  I will be sharing my set-up, loves, products and a whole host of other subjects all planner related!

Even though I have not been blogging regularly I have still been using my planner, recently switching from my personal pink Classic Filofax to a new (Birthday present from the Boy!) Filofax Malden personal in Kingfisher Blue! I have also set up a planner related Instagram where I have been sharing planner related images.  You can find my plannergram over at @plannermontannah,

The other TWO, yes, two big things I have worked on are getting this site set up as a dot.com (see the address bar above!!!!  J) and I have also set up an etsy store!  I have been busy making planner charms, photographing and listing them and they can be viewed over at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Plannermontannah?ref=search_shop_redirect , I will be adding more to the store as time goes on!  I have a few plans for things I would like to make and ideas of expanding the selection to include other planner related goodies along with my planner charms!
