February to March Planner Status

February to March Planner Status

I can’t believe March is just around the corner! Since I will be in Baltimore for the Pen Show on March 1, I spent Sunday reviewing my planning/journal set-up and deciding what I want to do for the month of March. But first, let’s review a few pages of my February planning/journaling. I enjoyed my…

Setting up my Planner for February

Inspired by last week’s color-coordination of my pens, I decided to pro-actively set-up supplies for my journal for February.
