I am a Virgo. This means I really like to be organised. The end of an old year and the promise of a new year gets me very excited. It gives me a chance to plan, organise and make lists. I love making lists. I love planning and organising.
Most years I buy myself a lovely wall calendar or in recent years I use the freebie that comes with the Mollie Makes magazine. I also invest in a diary and planner. I’ve yet to find a pretty one. Back in my corporate days I was given a filofax but stopped using it after awhile because the refills were so expensive and really ugly. Can you imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Miss Tiina’s website and Etsy shop.
In my quest for finding free downloads to use in my snail mail letters I came across Miss Tiina. She is a graphic designer and I adore her work. She also happens to make the prettiest, easy to use, everything you need, downloadable diaries and planners. She has covered just about everything. There is even a project planner section that I think will be perfect for blogging. And they fit my filofax. **This is not a sponsored post** I just really love her work.
And the really great thing about these printables is you can print out as many as you like, in any format you like. Guess what a lot of family members got for Christmas this year? If I have one tiny gripe about doing it this way, it’s that it is very time-consuming to put together. But I do like having that control over it.
She also has a lot of freebies at her website. I love her project life printable cards.
Because 2014 was such a write-off of a year for me with my fractured wrist, I have a to-do list a mile long for 2015. I feel like I have a lot of catching up to do. So I’ve made myself two planners – one for my personal life and one for business/blogging. I am super excited about this coming year and have big plans including moving my blog from this happy little home on Blogger over to WordPress.
I’ve started the process and am hoping to have it all up and running within the next week or so. It will combine my online shop and blog in one space. I’ve also got loads of other projects lined up for this year so stay tuned, especially if you’re a snail mailer.
Have a happy New Year’s Eve celebration whatever you might be doing. We are off to afternoon drinks with friends and then home for a quiet in-house celebration with the kids.
Do you have big plans for tonight? Do you have big plans for 2015? Happy New Year!!
