I have a confession.
I am a giant planner nerd.
I want to be one of those people with their handy e-calendar hidden in their phone, but the truth is, I love the feel of a paper day planner in my hand. The pen on the page, decorating each page with a fun theme, searching the interwebs for free printable planner stickers; I love everything about the process of paper planning.
I am not alone.
Paper planning is making a huge come back (or maybe, it was never truly gone). As it turns out, people are crazy passionate about their chosen planner. Kari at Hound Girl is an Erin Condren fanatic. Jessica at Beagles and Bargains and Kelsie at It’s Dog or Nothing swear by the Passion Planner. Christina at the Lazy Pitbull uses inserts from Sew Much Crafting. Carleen at Somepets has Kikki K, Kate Spade, and Plum Paper Planners (and I can’t even imagine how much she has going on to need all those!) No matter what you use it for, there is a planner out there for you. Me? I am a dedicated Me and My Big Ideas Happy Planner addict.
I like that the disc style binding is super flexible allowing me to add pages in, take entire months out when they’re over and always plan 18 month ahead, thanks to they’re 6 month expansion packs. (I know. I’m a crazy person for planning that far ahead. I understand.) The truth is, I’m basically useless without my planner. I have a memory like a sieve, crummy time management skills and the attention span of a drunk squirrel, so my planner keeps me centred and on task. Plus it’s pretty!
No matter what planner you use, us planner nerds will all tell you the same thing: one of the best parts about using your planner is decorating it! There is an entire blogosphere out there, a section on Etsy and website after website designed to help you make your planner beautiful.
What your planner needs is a little puggle.
Last year, AJ at the Art of AJ made me a custom puggle silhouette based on my sweet Kolchak. (Shut up, he’s sweet…sometimes.) I just *knew* that I needed to take that design and put it in my planner somehow. This is the result.
Not to toot my own horn, but I think they’re pretty cute for my first try. I can’t wait to make more planner stickers to help myself get organized and stay organized.
Now, if you’re like me and you need a pretty planner, filled with enough sass as the dog who inspired this set, you can download these free puggle themed printable planner stickers. They are sized for my favourite planner – the original Happy Planner.
See the tiny paw prints? You guys, those are Koly’s actual paws! I know. It’s too cute. A few years ago I took his paw print for my tattoo and I just scanned that same ink print and shrunk it down to use here. I love it.
