Creative Planner Organization Ideas

It is no secret that I love my planner and ways to stay organized, as I have written about it in several posts. When my friend Ashley, from The Mixed Bag, recently contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing some planner items she received as part of the  Busy B Ambassador Program, I jumped at the chance! After all, I am going to need a new one in a few weeks for 2018!

A new year is right around the corner, get organized with Busy B planners and these creative organization tips!

Here are some of the items I received and how I plan to use them. I actually have two planners...one that I use at work and one that is my personal/blog one that I carry in my purse.

What I am Wearing - Winter White and Black

The holidays are here, which calls for dressing up more than any other time of the year. I am making a bold statement by pairing winter white and black together in a geometric print dress and wool coat. I recently won a giveaway for  Eliza J dress and I picked this one, since I do not have a lot of long sleeved dresses that are appropriate for Winter.

Faux Leather Santa Hat Ornament

Each year, I like to add one or two new ornaments to my tree that mean something to me or my family. Although I love looking at all the themed trees on Pinterest and Instagram, who has the budget or the storage space to change up all the ornaments every year. Plus, there is something about pulling out handmade or special ornaments each Christmas and reliving the memories, especially since my son is 16 and won't be at home many more years. (OK, I need to stop before I cry all over my keyboard) 


 I used my Cricut to make a Santa hat Christmas ornament using faux leather and glitter iron on vinyl.

Today, I am using my Cricut to make a Santa hat ornament using faux leather and glitter vinyl for an Ornament Exchange I am participating in with some of my Cricut blogger friends!

Barre Themed Shirts Using Iron On Vinyl

I stay fit by taking several classes a week at my local YMCA, including Barre, Yoga, and PiYo. Obviously, I still want to look fashionable while working out, so I am always on the hunt for cute tees and tanks I can wear. After seeing a couple of my instructors wearing tank tops with barre quotes on them, I was inspired to DIY my own. I picked up a few $5 Mossimo tank tops at Target and got to work.

Bible Journaling with an Illustrated Bible + Giveaway

Bible Journaling is one of my favorite ways to spend time in the word. If you have been following me a while, I have shared many posts on how I journal and what supplies I use. You may still be on the fence about getting started, so I am here with another option for you. If you feel like you do not know where to start with being creative, maybe you would be comfortable with a Bible that contains illustrations. All you need is some colored pencils to get started.
