Welcome to the first post of the February Planner Love Blog Series. This series is all about how much i love planners, planning, and paper in general. In this series i will be focusing on pocket size planners, and several favorite items this season.
This post is for anyone, and everyone in the planning community. Maybe you are just starting out, and are seeing people's planner collections for the first time. Maybe you are a planning veteran, or have been at it for a few years, and you have started to see an accumulation of planners in your possession, and think to yourself "How did I even accumulate this many planners/notebooks?" (even just paper notebooks). This is how i feel, and have felt for a while now.
For me, planning has become a collecting endeavor. When i find a planner size that i love i ALWAYS want MORE! For some people this may be a problem, but since i have started looking at it as a collection it hasn't bothered me nearly as much. I have invested AN EXORBITANT amount of money into this hobby, and i intend to keep the ones that i absolutely love, and will plan with forever, and give away/donate/sell ones that i am not IN LOVE with. Just yesterday i donated several planners to the Salvation Army, after trying to sell them on the Facebook Marketplace with no luck. If they don't sell, i would rather donate them to someone in need, and now i know that those types of planners just don't work for me ( Zip Around Planners) so i will never purchase them (Even if the Kate Spade Wellesley Planner is beautiful!) Next lets talk a little bit about my planner collection!
My Planner Collection
My planner collection consists of around 30 planners +/- There are all different sizes, and brands, but this is a collection i plan to build on, and that i actually use. Below are a few photos of my collection (They aren't organized because they are in a large Victoria's Secret bag, but they will eventually be placed in egg crates (built as a book case) behind my desk when we move so that they are more presentable, and i can keep them organized by brand, and size etc..
I frequently think to myself "Am I a Hoarder?" The answer is MAYBE I AM, but i feel like it is a different type of hoarding because i use the items, and i don't just store them away, or hide them. They are out in the open for anyone in my room to see, and for easy access to me, or anyone who is using them. I feel proud of my collection, and frequently show people who ask to see it. So i guess its up to you to decide....ARE YOU A HOARDER?
Normally hoarding is defined as:
DEFINITION OF HOARDING
a supply or accumulation that is hidden or carefully guarded forpreservation, future use, etc.:
a vast hoard of silver.
verb (used with object)
to accumulate for preservation, future use, etc., in a hidden orcarefully guarded place:
to hoard food during a shortage.
verb (used without object)
to accumulate money, food, or the like, in a hidden or carefully guarded place for preservation, future use, etc.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post, and are looking forward to the 5 other posts in this series in the coming weeks!

Welcome to the second post in the New Year New Planner blog series. I hope that you enjoyed seeing my goals for 2018, and how transparent i have been, and will continue to be. However, this is a post that i never thought i would have to make.
I was injured at work on January 2nd the first day back after our new year long weekend. I have now been out of work for 18 days, and i have been planning in a different sort of way. At this point i do not have to put what my work schedule is because i don't have one, but i do have a ridiculous amount of doctors appointments. Sometimes i see multiple doctors in the same practice in the same day. I do use stickers to remind myself to do my doctor recommended stretches (even if i don't feel like they are doing any good), and i find myself planning other things (blog, podcast, possible new Facebook Group) because at this time i can't plan around work. To be honest most of my physical plans are on hold right now because i simply can't do them, but i can't wait to get back into a normal schedule, and ability to complete some of those 2018 goals.
Being at home, mostly in bed drives me crazy, but i also need to plan what my next steps are for my recovery. I am planning phone calls, organizing pertinent paperwork, and making sure everything is in order.
I have heavily considered opening a Facebook Group based around planning (i am definitely participating more being at home most of the day.) However, i don't know week to week how much longer i will be out. Hopefully there is a solution found, and i won't be out much longer.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post from a different perspective, and definitely something different from what is normally posted on this blog. I hope that it can give some encouragement to anyone else who is out of work, but still needs to plan their life.

Welcome to the second post in the Oh Deer Blog Series here at Createyou86. Can you believe it is New Years Eve 2017 already? I can't!
This year was kind of a benchmark for me. Come the first week of January 2018 i will have been at my day job for two years which is pretty awesome. My day job is something that i love to do, but is not an endgame for me.
Another big event came in September which was this blog turning three. This is a huge accomplishment for me, and something i love doing even though i have slowed down a bit because of work, and family things that have come up. You can check out that post HERE .
This year i managed to use Sew Much Crafting personal inserts for the entire year which i loved. The quality really is great, but i wanted to try something different for 2018 in my personal ring planners. That's right i said planners.
You may or may not know that i recently started a podcast which is available on the ANCHOR APP as well as APPLE PODCASTS, FOR FREE!!!!!!! and anywhere else that podcasts are available. The Createyou86 Podcast is a place for me to talk about planning, and for you as listeners to be able to call in with comments, questions, and all things planner talk. The Anchor App available on Itunes, and Google Play makes interacting even easier.
Lets talk a little bit about planners. My planners of choice in 2017 were my Gold Personal Special Edition Filofax, and my Carpe Diem Dark Blossoms Personal Planner. I have used quite a few travelers notebooks for blogging, and different series ideas i have for the blog as i am starting to build quite the collection. I will continue to use ring planners for personal weekly planning, and a mini Recollections spiral planner for my podcast planner (which is already planned out through March!).
I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed this year end review from Createyou86, and that you will stick around in 2018 to see new monthly blog series', and what new goals i have in store for the new year.
Happy New Year From Createyou86
Welcome to the first post (I know i'm late!!) in the Oh Deer December Blog Series here at Createyou86. December is one of my favorite times of year, and i am excited to share with all of you some of my favorite things about the holiday season.

Scroll to see each item that gets me in the holiday spirit!
I hope that you have enjoyed this post, and the beginning of this blog series. I can't wait to bring you more fun December posts.

Welcome to another product review here at Createyou86. Can you believe that there are only twelve days until Christmas? What could be a better time than this to talk about Let The Little Children Come gospel tracts, and evangelism tools and resources. I was provided with a free sample pack of items from Flyby Promotions in exchange for an honest product review.
These products are great for most major Christian holidays. It is the hope that these tools, and resources help in conveying the powerful gospel message to children. The gospel tracts are all specially designed to capture and hold the attention of children, while not distracting from the core message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
As a current, and long time childcare professional I have also taught bible study for young children, and have done several VBS camps. These tracts are colorful, and exciting to young hands, and eyes, but with the young children that these are intended for it is very important to supervise very carefully in the use of the products as there are some very small items which can be swallowed. Aside from that these products are great, and very informative for the young child. Any child would look forward to receiving these products, and being able to share them with friends, and family.
If you feel that these products may be useful for your church or organization you can purchase the sample pack HERE
Below are a few photos of items that come in the sample pack.
Welcome to the third post in the Falling Into Fall Blog Series here at Createyou86. Today is another product to review that i received from Flyby Promotions for free in exchange for an honest review. Now that the holidays are only 20 days away there is a mad rush to find just the right present for that special someone. This devotional has been created to cater specifically to young women. Each day features an easy-to-read, relevant devotion paired with a scripture verse, and journaling space to help readers reflect on the days message. The book tackles tough topics that girls face, from bullying, and social media to friendships and dating, all the while showing readers how infinitely precious they are in God's sight.
The book is hardcover, and retails for $14.99 (ages 13+)
Get a free 7 day download to decide if you love the book HERE

I highly recommend this book because it is great for morning pages, and i look forward to sharing it with my neice who just turned fifteen.

Welcome to another product review here at Createyou86. I received this product free of charge from Flyby Promotions in exchange for this honest review of the new Illuminated Art Journaling Bible. This product is beautiful. The ESV Illuminated Bible places the full ESV text alongside over 500 elegantly hand-lettered gold ink illustrations by renowned artist Dana Tanamachi. Printed on thick cream-colored paper, the Bible's single-column text setting and wide margins provide generous space for additional notes, prayers, and designs—inviting readers to creatively engage with and reflect on the beauty of God's Word. Here are some of the details about this product.
You can find this, and more information about the ESV Illuminated Bible at ESV ILLUMINATED BIBLE I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving, and time with your family, and now as we get into the holiday season this would be a great product to buy for someone who loves Art Journaling. This large beautiful bible is only $44.99.
I hope that you are enjoying this blog series.

Welcome to the fifth post in the September Studies 2.0 Blog Series here at Createyou86. I have gotten back into reading recently because of a book club series i did through YouTube. I love to read, and i read 300 words per minute, and comprehend 80% of that reading. Why do i know this? I was tested when i was younger, and when i was in seventh grade i had a college level reading capacity. Like i said I LOVE to read. I love the learning, i love the escapism aspect, and i love accomplishing a great book. Over the last two months i have bought quite a few books. This will be a comprehensive list of the books i have bought recently, and am currently, or plan to read in the very near future. (All photos are linked)
These are just a few of the books that i will be reading, and creating blog posts, and YouTube series on.
I hope that you are enjoying this series so far, and that you are excited about the October posts coming up soon.
LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK EVER?
Welcome to the third post in the September Studies 2.0 Blog Series here at Createyou86. This post is acting as an update for a case study that I have been working diligently on for almost two months. I have been researching several different ideas, and laws from the book The 48 Laws Of Power. Most times case studies take several months to compile, and create. My goal for this case study is to have it completed by mid-October. So far i have 30 pages of writing to break down, and decide which information is best suited for the blog post which will accompany it. Here are a few photos of what my working notebook looks like.
I hope that you are looking forward to reading this case study as much as i am to releasing it. There will have been a lot of time, and energy put into it to create the best post possible with as much information as possible. Some of the information that you can expect to come from the post has been collected from scholarly journals, websites regarding the book, articles, books themselves, The Harvard Review, podcasts, and several other items.
LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW: DO YOU LIKE LONGER BLOG POSTS?
Welcome to the second post in the September Studies 2.0 Blog Series here at Createyou86. This post is a pretty personal one. I hope that i can encourage you to get up, and make that change that you may have been needing that extra push to start in yourself.
I began my current weight loss journey in July of 2017. I was self motivated one day when i came home from work, went to get undressed, and found that my bra (sorry guys!) had left bruises on my skin. I was shocked. This had never happened before, and i took it as a wake-up call. I knew i needed to do something about my weight. Now this did not come from any outward source (no bullying, body shaming, etc.) I am that person that could care less about what other people think of my body because the only person that i need to please is myself. I just took a good, hard look in the mirror, and decided that i needed a change. I have lost weight in the past via very unhealthy means, and knew that it wouldn't work, and just wasn't healthy for my body. I work a very high energy job (I chase around 1 year olds all day as a Head Teacher of a 1 year old classroom), and i wanted to do the healthiest thing for my body going forward as i am no spring chicken anymore. So what steps did i take to lose this amount of weight in just about a month?
2. MET WITH THE TRAINER
I believe that this is a crucial part of weight loss. I met with the trainer at my gym, and she helped me devise a workout plan, and schedule that was designed specifically to my body. The workout we devised is called a 3 day split (3 days working out, 2 days resting) in whichever order you like. This schedule is created for everyone who does the program. She explained that it is the best thing for your body to be able to recover from the exercises that you are doing. In this class she also showed us how to properly use every weight lifting machine in the building. My workout consists of 10-15 minutes of stretching, 15-30 minutes of cardio depending on the machine i am using, and about an hour of lifting weights at a ratio of 4:12 or 4 sets of 12 reps. I am doing this 2-3 times a week after work.
3. THE FOOD
One of the biggest questions i get asked is "WHAT DO YOU EAT?" This is what everyone always wants to know because dieting is not easy at all. I had found it to be particularly difficult in the past because where i work, we are required / asked to eat the same food that the children are eating (4 meals: Breakfast, morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack) to encourage them to try different foods, and to replicate good eating habits, and etiquette. Most of the food the children eat are carbs including rice, pizza, pita bread, regular bread and noodles. Currently, i am still eating with the children, but i have started eating only the fruit/vegetables that they are served, and very small portions of other carbs. Everyday i bring a 64 oz. water bottle to work with me which was $5.00 at Five Below. Some days i finish it, other days i don't finish it at work, but will finish it during dinner at home. I have also started packing my lunch instead of going out to lunch every single day. It not only saves money, but keeps you on your diet. I need to be completely, or close to completely full to be satisfied, and i have found the perfect lunch combination. So....what do i eat?
I currently purchase all of my lunch food from my local Costco. Buying in bulk is saving me a ton of money because my food lasts longer. I currently bring 2 Activia Yogurts with me per day in my lunch box. I happen to love yogurt.
The next item in my lunchbox is Sargento Balanced Breaks. I love cheese, nuts, and fruit so these are the perfect mix. These come in packs of 12 at Costco (white, and yellow cheddar with different nuts). Again, you can't beat the price of $9.99 that will last me at least 12 days not counting weekends.
Last, but not least i include a "snack" in my lunchbox. Sometimes i eat this with my lunch around 12:00, and sometimes i eat this while the children in my class are eating their afternoon snack around 3:30. I am fortunate enough to have a refrigerator in my classroom, and to be able to eat whenever i want, or need to. I have actually checked the labels for these Kirkland (Costco Brand), and compared them to the Kashi Brand granola bars, and these Kirkland Brand are actually better for you in every way which was really shocking because Kashi is a well known health food brand. These granola bars are only 100 Calories per bar. (which you can see in the yellow circle on the top left of the bar). You really do need to compare labels to get the best out of your purchases. I also learned recently from a healthcare professional that if you can not read the ingredients on the label of any food that you should not be eating that food. These granola bars come 60 in a box at Costco so they last for at least 2 months.
NOTE AND CONFESSION:
I am a soda drinker. Plain old Coca Cola. I drink soda every day. I drink it at lunch for a little caffeine kick after having sat through nap time classical music it gives me some pep in my step (and as a caffeine product it does not give me migraines!!!). There are definitely times that i cheat on my lunches, but i try to keep to this lunch, and some kind of protein for dinner to even out my meal intake. This lunch, and water keeps me full from about 12:00-5:00 pm when i arrive at home for dinner around 6:30 pm. What I will say right now which is actually what a co-worker said to me recently is that i workout so that i can eat what i want.
If you feel that you need some kind of change in your life, or need to change what you are eating to lose weight i will firstly tell you to ask your physician what would be the best course for you. I am not a doctor, and have no expertise. This is simply my account of how i lost 20 pounds in about a month. Everyone's body is different, and will react differently. Here are my dated before, and after photos from the first day i started at my gym.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post, and this series so far. There is so much more to expect from this series.

Welcome to the first post in the September Studies 2.0 Blog Series. You may remember this series from last year, and i liked it so much that i have decided to create a second version. Last year i really took a look at myself as a blogger, planner, and creator. This year i want to look further into myself, my planning, organization, creation, and challenge myself to do a case study for this series. Even if i don't finish it i want to keep you updated about how it is going. In the past case studies have taken me a few months to get together.
This month is also my three year blogiversary, and you can expect a post all about that. I am so excited to be able to look back at the past three years of blogging. It has been quite the journey.
I hope that you enjoy this series, and that it helps you or someone you know. I am very excited to get started on this series.
What will you be most excited for in this series?
Welcome to the first post in the Falling Into Fall Blog Series here at Createyou86. Well...it is a little strange writing this "Fall" post on October 8th, and today in Eastern Pennsylvania it was a crisp 80 degrees out. Yup, you read right 80! We are still waiting for fall to kick in here so i thought to be festive, and make it feel a little more fallish around here i would make a fall series. I am currently burning a Yankee Candle Pumpkin Pie scented wax melt in my room so it smells amazing!
Although, i am super excited that fall is coming, and should be here already i am even more excited to share that this blog turned 3 years old on September 25, 2017. I can not believe how fast time has flown by, and how this blog has changed over the past three years. Keep reading to see what happened this year it is pretty great!
On September 25, 2014 i was sitting in a church in Central California wondering what was going to happen with my life. I was doing a job i really wasn't a fan of, and had newly learned about planning. I figured that i would immerse myself into the world of blogging as an escape, and to inspire myself. It might seem strange that i wasn't trying to inspire other people, but at that point i really didn't know what direction I wanted to go, and thought by writing i could figure it out. Three years later, and here I am writing another blog post (i have definitely taken breaks) which i don't feel bad about, and i feel like i have grown through my posts. Last year i did a fall photo shoot for my two year blogiversary, and i felt like it was such a fun thing to do for my blog that i did it again this year. I want to throw out a HUGE thank you for everyone who has visited, and supported this page for the past three years. It has been a great ride, and i can't wait to get working on more great content.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post as much as i have enjoyed creating it. These photo shoots are always so much fun, and October is my favorite month. Look forward to some great posts this month.

Welcome to a planners favorite month EVER! July ! This month is my personal favorite because of a planner challenge called #ONEBOOKJULY2017. This challenge has been around for several years, and a ton of people take part in it especially on YouTube. It is all about getting back to basics in your planner, knowing your system, and how it works for you. I am taking part in the challenge each week by posting a weekly update on YouTube. If you are interested in checking out more about the challenge check out my introduction video below, and from one planner to another I highly recommend that you take part in this challenge from Rhomany's Realm on YouTube.

Welcome to the second post in the June Planner Choices Blog Series here at Createyou86. The topic of this post is something that i think about all of the time. What is the REAL value of planning? From someone who started out never planning in her childhood to being an avid planner in her late 20's.
The value that i get from planning is immeasurable. I am able to keep my life together by planning, and i am able to keep ahead of myself. Although, i do not have a lot to plan on a weekly basis, i do find that it eases my mind to write everything down, and organize. Planning really benefits everyone weather they know it or not. Maybe you are planning a party. There are many aspects that need to be planned: The guest list, food, venue, time, entertainment, etc. When everything is planned out it makes it easy for everyone to know where they need to be, and when. It also helps to plan the before, and if people are going to bring something with them to help supply the party. Every person wins by knowing everything that they need to know, and you knowing what you need to do, and where you need to be.
I feel like the biggest value from planning is originality. Your planner is a place that no one else needs to see, but you, and you can express yourself without judgement. You can make it beautiful, scrappy, neat, or messy, and know that it is all you, and your ideas.

Welcome to another product review here at Createyou86. This is a very special review. I was lucky enough to get an advance deluxe copy of Mandisa Out Of The Dark for free from Flyby Promotions in exchange for my 100% honest review.. Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called Out Of The Dark because that is exactly where God lifted her out of!
This album is a great mix of funk, pop, hip hop, and worship. A few of my favorite songs off of the album include: I'm Still Here, Bleed The Same, Unfinished, and Comeback Kid. This album is unlike any other worship music i have heard before, and i was very pleasantly surprised by the album in general. I have been listening to this album in my car, and driving with the windows down on a beautiful day really puts this album in perspective, and really lets the power of Mandisa's lyrics sink in.
If you love worship music, i would highly recommend picking up Mandisa's Out Of The Dark Deluxe Album today! It is very inspiring. If you are curious about this album, or are looking to purchase you can check out the links below.

Welcome to the first post in the Magical May Blog Series here at Createyou86. This series is going to be about inspiration, where to find inspiration for your planner, and ways to make your planner more organized than ever before. Keep reading to find out how you can find planner inspiration anywhere.
If you are a planner you know that planners are always...always...ALWAYS looking for planner inspiration. There are so many places to find inspiration including magazines. Magazine have to be my favorite place to find inspiration including color combinations for my planner. I like to use interior decorating magazines, or fashion magazines to find colors that i think go well together.
Another place to find great color combinations is Pinterest. All you need to do is open up Pinterest, and search "Color Swatch". A ton of different color swatches will come up, and be amazing to search different colors. You can even be more specific in your color search.
I hope that you enjoy this series, and that you have a very Magical May!

Welcome to the second post in the Createyou86 April Back to Basics Blog Series. This post will be all about which planning supplies new planners could benefit from owning. If you have been following me for a while on any social media, or this blog you know that i love the Dollar tree, Target Dollar Spot, and any other bargain places to buy supplies. I love these places to shop because everyone's planning budget is different, and great planning doesn't need to be expensive. If you would like to keep up with my hauls you can either check my Instagram, or my Youtube Channel. I am always trying to find affordable planning items.
If you are new to planning....WELCOME! The planning community is amazing, and has so much to offer, but do not be fooled into thinking that you need to have super expensive items to be an effective planner. Below will be a list of affordable planners, and planning items that every new planner should own. These items can be found at either The Dollar Tree, Target Dollar Spot, or Michael's (Recollections Brand). This post is not sponsored these just happen to be some of my favorite brands in the planning world.
This list is pretty comprehensive, and you can customize your planner however you like. I do not purchase from Michael's unless I use a coupon. I hope that you are enjoying this Back to Basics series!
Let me know in the comments below WHERE DO YOU BUY AFFORDABLE PLANNER ITEMS?
Welcome to the first post in the April Back To Basics Blog Series here at Createyou86. It may seem very obvious what this series will be about, but i'll say it anyway. This series is about getting back to being one with your planner. It is time to get back to basics, and back to the start. Are you still using the same planner? Are you still using the same inserts? How long has it been since you really REALLY reviewed your planner, and what works for you? What planner accessories are you using? How have these changed since you started planning? If you keep reading you will find out why i prefer paper planning over electronics.
When it comes to planners you will always have your diehard electronic planners as well as your die hard paper planners. Neither of these choices are right or wrong, it just depends on how you utilize your planning to be the most efficient. There are a couple of reasons that i prefer paper over electronic planning. These reasons include:
1. Phones, Computers, and Tablets Break
I can't even count on two hands the amount of times i have had to reset phones, or get rid of phones or tablets because they are acting weird or break. Even computers become obsolete, and just stop working. After 4 years of using a MacBook Pro it just stopped working, and i lost EVERYTHING. Paper is always going to be more reliable as long as you remember to write things down, and keep it in a safe clean place.
2. Planning at Work
You boss most likely won't tell you to put your planner away. However, most bosses will tell you to put your phone away even if you are just using it quickly. As a teacher it is easy for me to make notes, and if need be, bring a planner to work with me, and flip through it without my boss being concerned about using a phone (at our school we are always on camera, and i don't mind it).
PSA...I am so sorry that it has taken this long to put out this blog series. I have been very sick for over a month, and i haven't been healthy enough to post. I also haven't used my planner in a week (not even decorated!) #plannerfail
There you have it my top reasons for using paper planners over electronic planners.
