I am an organizer FREAK (but somehow still so disorganized)! 

When I was in school, buying a new planner was my favourite part of the getting-ready rituals.  Then, as soon as January came around I would find a wicked planner on sale and I would have to ditch my months old one.

Ever since I've started crafting I've wanted to design my own datebook, and last month I finally got around to it.

I used old library due date cards as a starting point for the design.  I left the actual "date" part of the page blank, so that I can start using them anytime. 

I designed the pages by using Paint, Word, Scanners and Photoshop.  This is my very first attempt at any type of graphic designing.  It was kind of fun actually!

I also added a book list section because a) I'm a lists freak and b) I'm a books freak.  There's two sections; Books to Be Read and The Best Books.  I've already started filling them out.

I did two different covers.  Same words; different fonts.  I laminated the covers myself but the binding was done by the good people at Staples.  Now I want a coil binding machine for Christmas!   ***To the best of my knowledge the images used on the covers are either allowed to be used and/or are in public domain.  Please let me know if you have proof to the contrary:)***


Anyway, here's some pictures.  You can click on the link below the photos for a larger shot.

I really wanted to make my own planner but I was afraid it would take up too much ink.


How big is it, pray tell?

They're probably close to 250 pages altogether.  They each have 52 weeks.

I got them bound at Staples.  I think it was less than $5 each (for binding).

wow! I've definitely got to check out Staples and see how this binding thing works..

oh and when I asked how big, I meant like size. I'm guessing it's like half size of a standard printer paper sheet?

Oops!  Sorry Wink
You're right.  It's half the size of a regular piece of paper.
