Much Ado About You Planner Giveaway

Recently, my friend Lysa wrote about her favorite paper planner in this post here. I am also a gal who cannot get into the swing of an electronic calendar and, since it was time for me to get a new planner in September, I ordered one of the planners from the dear folks at Much Ado About You.

My calendar (and my kiddos pick on my desk)


Month-at-a-glance, week-at-a-glance, a pocket in the back and tons of space for notes & numbers. It is an invaluable tool for any gal!

Here is a little bit about Emmy, the creator of this business:

Hi! I’m Emmy from Much Ado About You.

I am a Paper Freak. Really. I love all things paper, and I get giddy excited when the paper companies come out with their new lines each season.

I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have an 8 year old son and a 7 month old daughter.

I love Jesus, and like to tell people about the amazing things God has done in my life to reveal Himself to me.

I run my business out of my home office and garage work space, and have 5 employees {including my baby’s nanny}, without whom I could not function.

We make products to help plan and organize life, including our popular Personalized Day Planner that has been sold in all 50 states and 7 countries. Life is crazy, my house is usually a disaster, my printer makes me bananas… but I love it all!

Well, the creative and generous Emmy who owns this swell business has offered to give away a medium sized planner to one commenter today. Just tell us what kind of planner or calendar system you currently use.

And Emmy also will provide 10% off of any calendars ordered through Friday, November 25th. Use the coupon code karen10 at checkout. Note that orders must be placed by December 1 to be ready for Christmas delivery.

And don’t worry. If you order one and then are the winner, your money will be refunded. :-)  Winner announced Wednesday.

Seriously—-ask for this for Christmas. And then, go on her cool site, pick your cover, choose your size and you can even upgrade and get all your special days put in the calendar.


I have all my family’s birthdays, anniversaries, upcoming weddings, etc…. already printed in my calendar.

Oh, I am in planner heaven!!

And soon you will be too!

Also, since so many of you have been asking for a family update on my sister-in-law, please see the post below. I appreciate your prayers.


  1. Hello, I do believe your web site could possibly be having web browser compatibility
    problems. Whenever I look att your weeb site iin Safari, it looks
    fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer,it’s
    got some overlkapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, fantastic blog!

  2. I use a weekly type calendar that sits on my counter. Looks like this one is a little more “travel with me” friendly so may have to switch! I would love to win it!

  3. I hate to admit it but I’ve tried many planners over the years and never succeed in keeping them updated. I use my flylady calendar in the kitchen to keep everything up to date and that works well! However, recently I got an Ipod and a free electronic calendar from I can update it on my computer at home and it sends email reminders. I also have my small Ipod in my purse to schedule the next dentist appt etc while I’m still at the office. My husband also has the app on his ipod and everyone sees the same thing (well if they CHOOSE to look at it! I still get asked on a daily basis if I have to work when it’s clearly marked on the calendar in the kitchen and the electronic one) I have to say though that I agree that these look really cute and I know whoever won it will really enjoy it!

  4. This would be so awesome – I personally don’t need one, but I know of someone that I could definitely share it with, so it could be a blessing to someone else.

  5. I have been using my blackberry lately, but do miss having a “paper” copy that I actually hold in my hands and write in!!

  6. I am a paper kind of girl. I have tried using the calendar on my phone to keep up with appointments, birthdays, deadlines, etc. and find that I do better if I have a planner, pencil/pen and highlighter. Thanks for the giveaway. I’m heading over to her site to check out those planners.

  7. I, too, am addicted to paper. I tried the electronic planners but they do nothing for my sense of touch! These planners are beautiful and would make all my senses sing!
