Weekly Planner Spread feat. Love, Charmaine


I love how this week’s spread in my Erin Condren* planner turned out! I used a sticker kit from Love, Charmaine. When she had her last release, I went a little crazy and bought several sticker kits. I love her style, and the colors and quotes she uses are perfect for my planner. Expect to see more in the weeks to come!

I used this bright, lovely, flowery kit called Day by Day this week. The washi is from Simply Gilded and the large box in the sidebar is from Fancy Plans.

First Weekly Spread in my EC Planner!


It’s move in day/week in my new Erin Condren (ECLP)! I decorated my first week with the Simply Gilded subscription goodies from May- the Tropical Luxe box. I have had hourly planners before, and I love that style of planning. I love a good schedule, lol. I love how this spread turned out, and I can’t wait to plan out the week! 😊

p.s.- The pink boxes and flag is from Fancy Plans.

My 2021 Mid-Year Planner Change


I finally caved and bought an Erin Condren coiled planner after all these years planning. I love the aesthetic of the Flora collection! 😍 I purchased the 7×9 silver coiled 18 month hourly planner. I love just looking through it and the smell of the paper is like nothing else.

I have loved Michaels’ Recollections coiled planners in the past, so I know I will just love this style. I love my Happy Planners too, but I need a fresh change for the rest of the year.

The Return of the Recollections Planner…

Hello! I wanted to share part of my daily planning routine with you today. I use my Happy Planner all the time, of course, but I also love using the Hourly Recollections Spiral Planner every night. The Erin Condren hourly planner first caught my attention last spring, and then Michaels came out with their own version last summer- so I had to try it!

I used it regularly from July-October, then I took a break for November & December. I started to miss it early this year, so I picked it up again, personalized it a bit more, and I am still hooked in May!Recollection Hourly Planner Update | JM Creates Blog

Recollection Hourly Planner Update | JM Creates BlogMy cover is from Erin Condren, but the guts of the planner is Recollections. It was the first way I customized this planner. I added this vellum sheet from The Planner Society to the inside front sheet. Instant personalization!Recollection Hourly Planner Update | JM Creates BlogI use this planner as a way to see how I spent my day, to track habits, work, dinners, weather, and more. I don’t decorate a lot… just stickers or washi here & there. I also use the hours literally- I’ve seen a lot of planners who use the hourly like a vertical and they just ignore the hours… but I actually like seeing the hours & how I spent them!

A peek at how I use it…Recollection Hourly Planner Update | JM Creates Blog

Update on the Recollections Hourly Planner

Last summer, when Recollections introduced their take on the hourly planner, I jumped on the bandwagon and purchased one. And, I loved it! I actually used it faithfully from July through October. And when the holidays came, I put it aside to try to make my planning life a little simpler. I don’t really need to use, like, 5 daily planners, right?

Well, times are a little slower now in the winter time, so I dug this planner back out and I remembered how much I actually enjoyed using it! I like to record how I spent my day. Plus, I spent a little time decorating and personalizing this planner some more… and I love looking at this planner sooo much now!
