Last summer, I was talking to a friend about how my absolute favourite part of being a pet blogger is the way it’s forced me to really examine my relationships with my dogs and to document their lives is crazy detail.
All at once I realized that if I wasn’t doing this, so many of the daily stories and memories that I share with you guys might otherwise be lost. I set out to create a way for all pet parents to record their memories and to help push me to keep striving for an even better pet-friendly life.
My goal is to create a week by week planner that not only pushes me to work on developing my relationship with my pets, but to work on improving training, grooming, pet-related cleaning and that captures my very favourite parts of living with pets along the way.
If that sounds like something you’d enjoy, I’d love for you to join us. Don’t worry. You don’t have to be artistic or creative (though you totally can be!) I’ll be sharing cheats and tips along the way. You can customize your own plan for the week or follow along and duplicate mine (or one of the other amazing bloggers who I hope will be joining in!)
This project NEVER would have gotten off the ground without the help, love and support of one of my Best Friends, Maggie from Oh My Dog!
Right from the development stage, her excitement and creativity were contagious (not to mention her ability to kick my ass into gear without making me feel like a slacker.) She’s a legit Planner Girl in her own right and I love her journalling style. Some of the links below will take you to her site and you should totally check it out because she has shared a ton of great stuff!
It doesn’t matter if it’s January or June. JUMP IN WHERE YOU ARE!
The MAMBI planner system that I recommend using is SO EASY to customize and you can just pull the skipped months out or go back and fill them in! But you don’t need a fancy notebook to do this. Paper and a binder. Any notebook. Any day planner. They’ll all do it.
Want to jump in? Here’s where you can find all of our challenge posts so far!
I love stickers. But most planner stickers are geared towards human moms, boss ladies and other folks. For this project, I needed PET STICKERS and a lot of them.
So, We’re making our own! All of our #BestLifePets designs are shared below as free printable planner stickers. What does that mean? Download the PDF, print it on full page label paper and cut ’em out with scissors, a Gyrocut or a Silhouette (I gots cut files – just ask!)
