Mid-Year Memory Planner Update!

Today I wanted to share an update on my Memory Planning. Typically, in the middle of the year I get kind of restless with my planners and I want something different to plan (& play) with. This year is no different!

When I started feeling the itch to change my Memory Planner, I actually bought a spiral Recollections planner to take the place of my current one (which was the Empowered Women Happy Planner pictured below). I still couldn’t get into it. So, I watched a few YouTube videos, which always inspire me in some way, and I switched to my Monthly Happy Planner (with florals, below). I have been wanting to use this planner so badly this year, but I couldn’t work into my rotation. It’s the perfect setup for my memory planning! Mid-Year Memory Planner UpdateThis is my Empowered Women Happy Planner, one of the final spreads I completed in it. I found the colored section at the top distracting, and too difficult to work into my design. I also sometimes have tons of photos for a week, then the next few and far between. This also makes it difficult to design my spread.Mid-Year Memory Planner UpdateHere’s my solution:

I am using the monthly pages for memories and some decoration, and I will use the monthly goal pages to record more goals and memories. I took out the daily to-do pages and replaced two pages with blank Happy Planner/ Happy Notes pages. The final two pages in the monthly planner are already for notes, and have gorgeous florals on them. So, I need four pages per month to do a weekly spread. Two Happy Notes pages and the two notes pages already in the planner make it work perfectly. I have the gorgeous Mambi Fun Florals sitcker book, so I’m just adding in floral stickers on my Happy Notes pages.

Here are a sampling of my first few spreads:Mid-Year Memory Planner UpdateIMG_2240How I make the photo collage:

In Lightroom, I have all the photos I may want to use for the week, then I use a 4×6 photo template, and arrange the photos I want to fit in the 4×6 accordingly. Some weeks, there are a lot of photos, and sometimes, not so many, so this collage idea really works for me. My photo for each week will always be a 4×6, but the photos can be various sizes depending on how many I want to add per week.Mid-Year Memory Planner UpdateThis planner is going to simplify my memory keeping, and make it look more organized & consistent.

New Memory Planner Spreads

Hello! I’m back today to share some recent Memory Planner spreads with you. These are weekly memories I put in my Empowered Women Classic Size Happy Planner. I am still loving this way of memory keeping!

These pages are from March to right before Easter. Some weeks look more full than others. Sometimes I add a few stickers, sometimes a lot. It just depends on what I’m feeling that week. I’m ok with this flexibility to memory keep as I want!Β  😊Memory Planner | Created by Jen BlogMemory Planner | Created by Jen BlogIMG_0793My April monthly spread…IMG_0794My favorite spread in this planner so far this year.

My 2019 Planner Lineup!

Hello! It’s taken me a long time to sort through my planners to finally decide on a planner system for 2019. I wanted something simple that I could keep up with, but I also need that creative outlet. I love setting up & decorating planners. I hope you do too- that’s why you’re here, right?!Β  πŸ™‚

Here’s a look at my 2019 lineup…My 2019 Planner Lineup!My main everyday planner is a Mini Happy Planner. I love this small size. I can hop this planner right into my bag, it’s cute sitting on my desk. It’s perfect for my life right now. I use the monthly and weekly views in here, and I have a section for notes. I love making lists!Β  πŸ™‚My 2019 Planner Lineup!I still need to make proper dividers in my Mini, but I did add this cute Planner Society girl vellum and planner girl stickers.My 2019 Planner Lineup!My second planner is one that I’m bringing from my 2018 lineup. This is a Recollections hourly planner. It’s the size of an Erin Condren, hence the hacked EC cover on this planner.My 2019 Planner Lineup!This planner is just a way for me to reflect everyday on how I spent the day. It’s fun to decorate weekly too.My 2019 Planner Lineup!This next planner is my new Memory Planner. I started Memory Planning in a Happy Planner last year, and I loved it. I kept it up every single week. Yay!!My 2019 Planner Lineup!I love this layout. It’s vertical with lines, with a box on top of each day. I may decorate that section, or right down notes from a particular day- it will just depend I guess.

This is the first week of the year. I have room for some photos, thoughts, tip-ins, and deco. I am super excited to see how this planner goes throughout the year!My 2019 Planner Lineup!This is my final planner (for now!). I have to admit that I’m not using it regularly just yet, but that may change. I wanted to use it as a blog/social media planner, but I am also just loving making lists in my Mini HP for now. This planner is so gorgeous though, I’m sure I will use it at some point this year.My 2019 Planner Lineup!That’s it for now! Do you have your planner lineup set yet?heart_jen
