I liked the idea of my new “Midori-Style” weekly planners a lot, but needed to tweak some aspects of the second notes page – I like more trackers and meal plan stuffs. And didn’t really like the color blocking of the dated version I released, so wanted to tweak that too. And now I have a couple of undated versions I’m really excited to try. So if you don’t care about writing in your own dates (like me!) then you are in luck because they are now on the Junior downloads page! Super basic, no monthly calendars (they are available separately never fear), no mini monthly calendars, nothing I have to update later haha. Quick, easy and colorful. ♥
Is there anybody hankering for a daily version of the Pretty Pretty Planner? Once I had the format for my new “Midori Style” week on one page planner, it was pretty easy to get from there to this Daily page with notes. It actually brings back fond memories of old Franklin Covey planners I used to have. If I keep developing it, I will have to decide between doing a full page for notes, just like the old Franklin Coveys (the version shown below), or just putting the days next to each other and skipping the extra notes page. Adding each two-page spread is SLOOOOW going though, doing a page for every day makes for some huge files! So I think I will have to break them up by month. And it may take a few days to finish – definitely will be a beast to update next year too! But ultimately will look like this (a different color for each month):
I really like how it turned out! Although not entirely sure what to do with the extra “Notes” box….
What to do when you love the layout of the Hobonichi Weeks or Midori weekly planners, but still want to use your discbound notebooks? Well, you spend all last night after dinner coming up with THIS. 😁 Working on a new Junior size planner version now in this format, a week on one page with a full page for notes. Coming soon!
UPDATE 2/12/19: This is now available for download! Go to the Junior downloads page and scroll to the last item in the table. As usual, let me know if you encounter any issues. Enjoy!
Hi all. I posted a couple of weeks ago about missing May 23rd in certain Junior size PDF downloads. After getting a couple of reports that the downloads still were missing a date, I checked every Junior size PDF I have for 2019. They all have May 23rd, in all formats. I’ve also deleted from the Mediafire upload folder, and reuploaded these correct PDFs again, just to make completely sure. If any users are still downloading a PDF with missing May 23rd date, all I can suggest is to please clean your web browser history and cache in case the old files are somehow saved in your browser settings, cleaning this history should force it to download the newer file. Other than that, I’m at a loss as to what else to suggest. Email me using the contact form on the About Me page, and I can email the newest PDF to you directly.
Did you know……that the Pretty Pretty Planner is made with sticker users in mind? Back in 2015 when I designed the PPP I wanted Erin Condren/Happy Planner sticker fans to be able to use their sticker stashes on my printable too (even if I didn’t use any stickers myself at the time). So I made the columns just over 1.5″ wide. I even made a “Big Boxes” version (shown here, on top of the “Classic” PPP with shorter sections) of the Pretty Pretty Planner just to make room for larger stickers each day. I found these adorable Sweet Kawaii Design stickers at Michaels recently, and they fit PERFECTLY in my Junior size (half letter size) Pretty Pretty Planner weekly columns. And look how cute they look with the PPP colors! 😍
Just a reminder, if you are sharing pics of your printed/assembled Pretty Pretty Planners on Instagram, please tag me (@Faustine2012) and use the #prettyprettyplanner or #prettyprettyplanner2019 hashtags, as I’d LOVE to see how you are using them!! ♥
Hi everyone! I have been approached a couple of times about Pretty Pretty Planner (PPP) users who created a complementary or add-in sheet to use along with the official inserts from my blog, and wanted to know if I would like to share it with my followers.
Given the issues I have had with stealing of my planners in the past, initially I wasn’t sure how to feel about these requests. After all, my original intention was to make the Pretty Pretty Planner free and as customizable as possible, to suit everybody and anybody’s needs (which is why I used to offer the modifiable Word documents as well as PDFs). But at the same time, while I am all for sharing and promoting the Pretty Pretty Planner, I wasn’t sure how comfortable I would be with people potentially saying their creations were “part” of the Pretty Pretty Planner system.
But I gave it some thought, and I think that as long as these Pretty Pretty Planner friends provide proper source credit and linkage back to this blog AND use it for personal use only, then I’m all for sharing some of these fun complementary additions with everyone. I think the key to my comfort is that it is truly an add-on/complement and not a REPLACEMENT – as in, not an alternate version of the “official” monthly or weekly planner system, which I would have more reservations about approving.
In a great example of this, I was contacted recently by Alison Innes, a Pretty Pretty Planner user who just needed a couple of extra add-ins giving her more room for daily notes to make her PPP system perfect. She wanted her creations to match the regular monthly/weekly planner pages (which I TOTALLY understand), and communicated with me to see if I’d mind if she shared them as “PPP additions”. Which first of all, I LOVE that she cared enough to ask how I felt first. Thanks Alison!! And secondly I really approve of how she phrased the linkage back in her post ‘Getting Organized, 2019 Style‘ – it’s a perfect model of how to provide this linkage/credit as well as providing her own download terms. Her add-in sheets complement the PPP and are even in the same colors!! A sample of her “ppp-day-a-page-letter” notes pages that have all the PPP colors to match the monthly/weekly planner pages:
Please check out her blog post for more info.
I love this idea of shared Pretty Pretty Planner fan-created “additions”, and eventually may create a whole new section of this blog to showcase them. If anybody else has anything similar they’d be interested in sharing, please feel free to contact me!
