The 2017 Pretty Pretty Planner is coming!!

Like THIS AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING soon. They’re not ready yet, because I need to upload everything to MediaFire and update the blog links and stuff. But check back by early this evening cause they should be ready!!!

I wanted to thank everyone for their very helpful and well thought out comments, I greatly appreciate them. (Well, there was ONE that rankled, but I’m trying to let it go.) I am so pleased that you all like this planner so much, even when I was frustrated and life got in the way with these, you are the reason I couldn’t let the Pretty Pretty Planner die.

So after much deliberation I have decided not to put them up for sale this year, and just post them for download as usual. I am adding new usage policy information EVERYWHERE I can think of on my website, and have a new Usage/Printing Info txt file I’m including with the downloads.

I’m also going to make it my goal to explore a more professional design program in 2017, perhaps Adobe InDesign. Designing these templates in Word 2010 has been getting more and more frustrating – one minute everything will look perfect, and the next my tables are all messed up and truncated, and I haven’t even touched anything! And the bigger the Word files get, the fussier they seem. So there’s been some creative cursing at my computer this weekend haha. But I think the Pretty Pretty Planner has evolved past the limitations of Word. I’ve also heard there are scripts I can use in InDesign that would automatically populate all my dates, which would be AMAZING because that is the biggest time-suck when updating these.

So, that is the plan for 2017. Come back in a few hours and you can download away.

Thanks for sticking with me folks. ♥

    I believe that you have to pay for Adobe on a monthly basis. I bought CS6 when I was teaching and knew they were going to a rental program. I think all of these softwear companies are or will be doing this. I would check into open source programs if you have the time to learn them or look for a real copy of Adobe secondhand.
    Coral Draw still sells it’s softwear out right but I don’t know if they have an In Design type product.
