Monday Made-It!

I'm pretty sure I haven't done a Monday Made-It since, ohh, August?  For some reason, I just have more time in the summer and I can't quite figure out why... haha!  I just don't have the patience to create things during the year.  I'm not really a creative person, so it takes A LOT for me to make something on my own.  But, thanks to Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics, I'm getting better!

My Monday Made-It this week is for all you bloggers out there!  I am a planner, an organizer, a list-maker.  I am obsessed with calendars.  I like to have things written down.  So I created my very own blog planner!  I was inspired by The Eager Teacher to create this.  Not all of her pages worked quite right for me, so I tweaked it to fit my needs.  And, honestly, it's still not all the way right for me.  But eventually I will get it right!

Here is the cover (which is just so darn pretty to look at!):

I have the monthly calendar first:

I use my fun flair pens to make everything prettier!

Next, I have a weekly calendar:

There are boxes for each day of the week.

As well as sections for to-dos, projects and collaborations (linky parties, giveaways, etc).

The third section is for blogging ideas.

I use it to write down topics I want to blog about.  The checkboxes on the side are my favorite!

The last section is where I take notes about products that I want to create.  It's hard to keep them all in my head!

Once I finished the planner, I had it bound at Staples!

I'm not going to lie, I'm kinda obsessed with my planner.  I may be making more in the future!  I do know that some bloggers find a planner to be cumbersome and just extra work, which is completely understandable.  I don't use my planner all the time, but I do really like having it.  It definitely helps me feel more organized.

Happy Monday!
