i laid down post-its to mark events in the weeks before i did the actual decorating. it helps me stay on track and not mess stuff up ahead of time. i tend to change my mind a lot. 🙂 so the first thing that i did was choose some washi that matched the kit that i was using. i don’t always use a kit. it just depends on my mood. but i never use a full kit. i usually stretch it over 2-3 spreads. this coffee one is adorable and from paper dove shop on etsy (the official name is “carly”.)
so after picking out some washi, i made my weekend banner washi and laid some washi down at the bottom. since i wasn’t using a full kit, i just chose a silver polka dot one. then, i put down a couple of the “full boxes” in my usual areas (beginning and end of the week).
then i put down the weekend banner over my washi to finish it off. i always keep a list of the five best things that happened during the week. i call it my high five for friday list. it goes down on thursday because that’s when i write the blog post. i also listed some social media to-dos on sunday night. then, i finished off my sidebar to-do list with a mini washi banner and a label along with a habit tracker and a place for my meals. on wednesdays, i always have a few midweek chores so i put a quick list there.
