The February #planwithmechallenge; another look into my planning system

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

I somewhat took part in the February Instagram "plan with me challenge"... here's a writeup of what I did, for those still interested in my planner system. Day 1: Hi! About me! The first thing about me is that the first day of the month is usually very task-filled and crazy-making, so I am totally cheating by using the same picture I used for introductions last month, and saying pretty much the same thing I said then. My name is Lorena, and I am a maker of ceramics, dyer of yarn, knitter, science fiction reader, tattoo collector, and hard-working home-based-business...

The January #planwithmechallenge (days 16-22)

Continued from last week! Here's a little look into my bullet journal (basically my administrative assistant) thanks to the #planwithmechallenge on Instagram. Day 16: Future Planning I skipped a couple more days (12: Financial Plans - that's all online in my accounting program, 13: Major Life Events - again, online, as that's what my personal blog is for, 14: Multiple Schedules - I don't keep his, I can barely keep ahead of my own, hahah!) and you'd think skipping a couple would put me AHEAD and not BEHIND, hahahah.

The January #planwithmechallenge (days 1-5)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've been doing this challenge (geared towards planner nerds) called the #planwithmechallenge. I haven't been cross-posting it to the HaldeCraft Facebook and Google + pages because it's not really work related... well, it kind of is, in that I use my Bullet Journal the way some people probably use administrative assistants...  ANYWAY, a few of my tribe on Ravelry were interested in me doing some blog posts about it, because they're not on Instagram but are planner nerds (or want to be, muhuwahahaha, one of us! One of us!). Pretty much all I'm...
