Heya Aspiring Gurus!
I have been working on my July Monthly Spread in my ECLP and I thought that I would share what it looks like right now. It will probably be a bit more full at the end of the month, because things always tend to come up or you forget things. Since it is early on in the month, I thought I would share the spread and then share the finished one when I show my August at a glance. I worked hard on my spread and I will do my best to tell you everything that I did on the pages.
I love the rainbow washi that my friend Danielle gave to me as part of my birthday present. I used it to cancel out the days that are not a part of July. The strips ended up aligning perfectly, which is an added bonus. I used the pink washi on the ends of all of the days in July, because I’m writing what posts upload on my blog for each day. I can see which ones are done and which ones are left to do. This way, my blog doesn’t have to be on my weekly spread for long blogging events. I wrote in things I need to do, bills my dad pays, and my cleaning schedule. Each week, I do a cleaning zone and just do small tasks in each area everyday, except Sunday. I want to try to observe the Lord’s Day.
I used the rainbow washi again to cancel out that day in August. I used green washi for pay days and the little day off sticker for getting the day before the Fourth of July as a paid work holiday (which is today!). I like using the Goals section to breakdown my paychecks with what bills need to be paid, then adding a goals section on the bottom. I love how busy looking my planner is. It makes me happy just looking at all the pretty colors. I like the idea of keeping the planner as a scrapbook of sorts. It is aesthetically pleasing to me.
