Are you as organized as you want to be? I am... NOT! To tell the truth, I have actually been that mom who forgets about early release and picks her kids up from school an hour late. :(
But I have a secret that helps me stay a lot more organized than I have been in the past and definitely helps me to be a more consistent blogger: I use a planner.
I take it with me wherever I go because there are lots of 'in between' moments (doctor's offices, soccer practice, etc.) when I can grab a chance to review what I have in the works and schedule out the next week.
I totally think having somewhere to jot down new ideas helps me creatively. I may not have time to work on an idea when it comes to me, but then later when I have time I often have no ideas, lol! So being able to look back through my planner and see what my thoughts were when working on something else gets the juices flowing.
And in case you're wondering where I got this beautiful planner from... This year I had yet to find the right one. There are plenty of plain ones available and I was about to settle for that when Anna Griffin surprised me by sending me hers!
As soon as I got it I sat down on my fluffy rug and got my week together.
So I just want to send Anna a huge THANK YOU by showing it off and letting you know that this gorgeous 18-month planner (stuffed full of goodies) will be showcased on HSN soon!

Do you also have trouble finding time to sew? Well, I wrote another blog post on that topic. :)
