In late 2012 it became apparent to me that I was going to have to give up my non organizational ways and start using a planner. As someone who has had trouble with tech gadgets crashing or shattering (just happened a few months ago and I miss my iPhone 4 tremendously) I knew that a planner that I could actually write in and hold in my hands was the way to go. I didn’t want a small one, but one that I could actually find (a messy girl has to start somewhere) and preferably one that I could customize with one of my floral prints from my etsy shop. Unfortunately, I was not able to find one in my price range, so I went with the largest one I could find and in a fairly inexpensive price range.

Being organized is crucial to me these days. I conduct various interviews on a daily basis (all on Eastern standard time from my home in Northern California) with different clients, I also care for full-time for my grandmother who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease…and this year I plan on adding even more to my planner with my budding floral and photography businesses. Functioning without a planner is nearly impossible. Which is why having one that I actually enjoying looking at and one that I could customize was so important to me.

Well, in November of 2013 I started on the hunt again for a great planner for 2014 that I could customize, and was pleasantly surprised when Personal – Planner gave me the fantastic opportunity to personalize a planner- DREAM COME TRUE – to review!

When I say I was given the opportunity to personalize my planner, let me tell you I was given full control. I personalized the front and back covers with one of my floral prints; there’s even a lost and found page where my name, address and contact info were printed in case I ever absentmindedly and unintentionally leave it somewhere. The calendar is amazing, it’s large and has tons of room to add everything I need to get done for the day (I also could have personalized it with my friends birthdays via Facebook but opted not to). I even added a “weather” section (it’s at the bottom of every day in the planner) which I plan on using for my floral business. I could have included a few sudoku games to the last pages of the planner as well, but the only games I play involve the California Lottery and Scratchers…and yeah, we won’t go there! 😉

I am beyond thrilled with my planner- I love the quality of it, it’s stunning. I would highly recommend Personal – Planner in a heartbeat, they were a pleasure to work with and as I’ve mentioned throughout the post, their work is outstanding.
