It doesn't have to be a big deal! Slap on some acrylic or watercolors to get rid of the white paper.
Add a border that reflects the mood of what you want to plan. Nothing says "outdoors" and "food" to me more than black and white check!
Add some imagery around the border that also reflects what you're going to plan. Here, I've added a few vine-like swirls, some peppers, and names of vegetables that I like to plant. A few "gems" of paint to add a little sparkle, and I'm ready to start planning my garden.
Now I can take my journal outside and plan my garden among the birds visiting my feeder. I could have planned my garden on blank paper, but doesn't this look much more inviting?
What do you need to make plans for this week or month? Graduation parties, weddings, vacations, holiday parties? Take the time to create a welcoming environment for your thought process. You deserve to pamper yourself in this small way, and besides, you won't have to roam around the house wondering where you've put your list - you'll know right where it is!
