My Favorite Planner EVER is back!!!!!
I can hardly contain my enthusiasm. I mean seriously. I screamed out loud a few days ago while poking around on Etsy on my Ipad one evening. The reason????
My favorite planner EVER (that had ceased being produced) IS BACK!!!
Once upon a time, I blogged here about a planner made by a woman named Emmy. Emmy closed up shop about 6 years ago or so and I began searching again for a planner to keep on my desk that worked for me. Although I do have a Google calendar, I just LOVE writing in a paper planner and seeing it all day with my week spread out before me–in a vertical daily layout. (I think of my day from top to bottom, not side to side.)
I looked. And looked. I tried ones from the department store. Then another from the office supply store. Then I ordered a couple off of Etsy. But each year I missed my favorite planner on earth.
THEN….after trying once more to hunt down Emmy to see if she’d ever changed her mind and started her business back up, I discovered that her sister Molly has an Etsy shop WITH PLANNERS DESIGNED BY EMMY!!!!!!!!
I reached out to the fabulous Miss Molly. I grabbed a planner–customized with the cover and personalization I wanted. (The cover I chose had feathers on it so I had my name and a Bible verse about feathers put on the cover.) And now folks, I am back in the swing of things. I just truly love this tool—along with the other items she sells—and I found out when I reached out to her that she loves my books and was so happy I’d contacted her. So, we’re just spreading the love around to include you too!
A few aspects I love about this planner: the pages are sturdy paper, perfect for writing and even highlighting. I use highlighters to signal certain things. Green means “gone” so those are the days I am away from home speaking. Or in the case of this month, when my hubby and I (who rarely go away alone) go to a bed and breakfast with a Groupon we found for an overnight.
I also love that on the fabulous week-at-a-glance sections, there is a bottom square. I use it to record evening tasks (I use a notebook for the work I need to accomplish during the day) and also what I hope to serve for supper. Notice I said “hope”. Also notice that this week I cooked a huge meal for my son’s birthday on Tuesday so there are a few leftovers days planned.
Especially nice about this planner too? A small sticky note is the perfect width to fit in the column of a day. I use these to jot down items I need to add to my grocery list. Then I can grab it and stick it to the main grocery list that hangs in my kitchen before heading out the door to shop.
Ahhh!!! I just adore this useful tool!
So, here is what you can do:
Head to her Etsy shop: Throne of Grace.
(She only has 21 left, so you might want to jump on it before they are gone!) The planners include both month and week-at-a-glance pages and can be purchased with the pre-made designed covers, or blank covers, ready for the buyer to add their own crafty touches. She also has months-only planners which just include the monthly spreads and she has plenty of those in stock.
Her next line of planners available will be the August 2017 – July 2018 planners available for pre-order beginning in June. Then the traditional January – December line for 2018 will be available for pre-order in late September or early October. She also has ons of other whimsical and practical products. (Just look at those customizable prayer journals!!)
Go to Throne of Grace on Etsy and grab some helpful and whimsical tools now!
PREVIOUS GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
Happy planning ya’ll!!!!!!
Do you know if there are any planners like yours left? I went to her shop and couldn’t locate them. Thanks for your help.?
Scripture cards would be wonderful! Time during the day goes by too fast, having the cards available to carry with me is awesome!
Everyone seems to want the planner or the scripture cards. And although both would be nice, it is the prayer cards that is in the package with the scripture cards that I NEED. I pray daily and have been praying for the Holy Spirit to help me with my prayers as I am obedient in this area, but struggle with getting my thoughts or burdens into words. Hope the cards might help.
I would love to win the planner as I use them a lot for my day job and one for my business and one for personal I loved being organized. Thanks
These are so pretty and useful!! I love the prayer journal. I’m heading over to her Etsy store now!! Thanks for sharing!
I do not have a planner – and have never used one. I sure would like to try one! <3
I’m a wife, a mom to 4…of those 4, currently raising 3 teenagers ? I’m swamped w/their school commitments, endless appointments while working full time. I think having an organized planner would help me feel less stressed & lessen the burden of feeling overwhelmed.. The last time I owned a calendar/appointment planner was back in my college days! I need to start this year off right ????
What a great find! Thank you for sharing it! I look forward to investigating it further. If selected I’d enjoy How to pray cards. They are an inspiration when praying seems dry. Thanks again! Blessings!
I can’t decide! Both would help so either one would be wonderful!
Wow! Love! As a teacher I love the planner but I love the scripture cards as well. I think I’ll wait for the school year planner and hope for the scripture cards.
Thank you so much!
I’d love the scripture cards!
I would love the planner.
The prayer/scripture cards would be wonderful!
I’m trying to commit more verses to memory.
I would love to win the planner because they are so pretty and I’m a busy homeschool mom!
Hello Karen, Happy New Year The planner would be INCREDIBLE to use!!!!!!! I LOVE ALL THE IDEAS YOU SHARED. May God’s Blessings SHINE in your 2017
I love planners and this one is SO pretty! I already have one I’m using, though, so I think the Scripture Cards would be fabulous. Trying to decide between the “Choosing Joy” and the “How to Pray for Your Children” ones.
I’m always looking for the perfect planner. Thanks for sharing!
I would love the planner. Every year I am a bit disappointed in what is out there, and like you, I love seeing everything written down!
I would love to win the planner. I started using one for myself last year, and I don’t know how I functioned without one.
O my goodness. Best giveaway. :). I am a super planner girl. Love them all. This one is precious. I would love to have a personalized cover as well. Wow. O and Karen. I’m glad it’s back for you. What a blessing.
What an awesome giveaway! It’s nearly the end of January and I still need to find a planner that works. I have 3 sitting here now that I am not sure work at all. Love the vertical day to day too. Hard to find those and with a monthly spread. Large squares , lots of writing space are what this mom of many,who also happens to have her own life too, needs.
Looking forward to checking out the prayer cards and journals too. Would love to win either item. But desperately need a planner. Lol.
I would LOVE both. I have been praying for Gods guidance in becoming more organized because of our growing family through adoption. I would love the prayer cards to guide my prayers for our children! :)
