I’ve been looking for a new agenda since probably around October, but none of them seemed right. So, the next best thing was to make a DIY Agenda for 2015.
As much as I’m on the computer you’d think I’d keep my calendar online but I really like to have something tangible and a bit old school.
I’ve always bought my agendas, last year I had one from Lilly Pulitzer, which I really liked. They’re full of paintings and stickers and the calendar pages are really useful. But I found myself looking at the paintings or illustrations in it and “wanting” to make my own, not making my own. I plan on making this agenda an art journal and a work in progress.
I had some fun with making the cover a little three dimensional using foam sheets to cut out letters and numbers, then using 3D paint to create designs.
I used a sketchbook with multimedia paper so that I could paint in it without the paper getting too warped.
I created sections for each month with a calendar and a place for each months goals.
A section to keep blog notes and goals.
A place for all my to do lists.
Little reminders to use my time wisely and efficiently so that I can find a good work life balance.
As I go along I’ll keep painting and drawing in this book along with my notes. It will be a place for inspiration and creativity.
Do you use an actual agenda or do you keep everything on your computer? What works best for you?
