First things first…. the winner of the Seasonal Storytelling class spot is Kelly O.  Congrats!

Usually on Fridays I share some Project Life pages.  I didn’t get my photos in last night before it got dark (thank you Winter) so I have a freebie for you instead.

A couple of years into Project Life and I’ve discovered what works best for me.  Journaling as the week goes on and planning out my weekly spreads right on the same paper.  So I’ve made up a new planner and so far it’s working really well.  I journal in the daily spots during the week… just little notes about what happened, what people said… and then at the end of the week I plan out the spread on the graph at the top of the page.

Each page is 8.5×11″ and the corresponding spread is for page protector design A (the one I used the most often).  I have a binder where I keep a lot of house info/deadlines and use the front section for this journal/planner.

If you think it’ll work for you too, please help yourself and click here to go to the download.

Things to note: You’ll find the planner in the freebies section of my shop.  You’ll receive a downloadable link after you “check out”.  On rare occasions PC users have trouble opening my files (I use a Mac).  If this happens please shoot me an email and I’ll fix that.
