My Seasonal Planning Sheets for 2018!

Sunny planner

Hello my friends, and Happy Monday! I am following up on my previous post (a tour of my new homemade planner), with a brand new set of updated sheets for 2018! If you're interested in making up a planner like the one described in that post (and shown above), here are a few notes:

SO ...

The basic planner pages (forms for homelearning, homekeeping and seasonal living) are all linked in this post.

You might want a title page, and if you like, you're welcome to use this one ... :)

You might want thicker, monthly divider pages - I find a heavy scrapbooking paper (like card stock weight) works well. In my planner I used this paper pad.

I also used a thick sheet of scrapbook paper for my planner cover. (I found the heart maps pattern seen above at Michaels.)

A good, firm backing is essential and for this I used a piece of chipboard (also found at Michaels).

I used some pretty washi tape and decorative stickers to brighten up my two-page monthly calendars. :)

I also used adhesive monthly tabs along the edge of the monthly dividers. (Check Staples or Amazon.)

You might want to keep your sheets in a binder or on a clipboard (I've tried both before!) but this time around I had my whole planner fitted with plastic spiral-binding at Staples. I find it much easier to use the pages in this form ... and it cost just a little under $5!

 AND ...

If you used my planning sheets this year (2017) then the weekly quotes will look very familiar! I just didn't have time to research new quotes this time around!

The one-page monthly calendar might seem redundant. This was the calendar I created with my first set of sheets and, while I like the look of it, I didn't like the lack of writing space! (Which is why I made up the two-page spread.) I use this one-page calendar in my planner for brief nature notes. This might also be used as a gratitude journal, reading log or for planning seasonal suppers!

Any links marked with an * are sheets I printed double-sided. (For example, "Garden Planning.")

There are two versions of the weekly "agenda" page - one with a column marked "Student Goals" (which I use for weekly lesson planning) and one marked simply, "Notes" (for non-homeschoolers!). Also, when you go to print the agenda pages, there is an extra blank sheet attached to this form and no matter what I try I can't seem to make it disappear! When you go to print this page, just set your printer to page one only.

For each month there is a blank planning sheet so you can make up your own "events" and "special projects" pages. :)

In a similar vein, please let me know if you'd like a "Birthday Journal" page done in a different monthly color scheme. As mine falls in January, that's the one I went with! :)

ALSO ...

Down the road I will have a guide to my sheets available because I often get asked, "How do I fill in the 'Crafts & Comforts' section?" Or "Can I see one of your events/project pages filled out?" I could just say go check my blog, lol! But that would be flippant and I'm rarely ever flippant so what I'd like to do - would love to do! - would be to write up a kind of guidebook to my own kind of seasonal learning and living. Not sure just what kind of platform this would be - a newsletter? An e-book? A printable thing? So stay tuned for more news on that ... and I'm all ears for any suggestions!


You have all been so very kind and encouraging as I toodle around with this little hobby of mine (as my husband calls it, lol) and I so appreciate your thoughts, inquiries and patience! Please remember, this is VERY much a homemade kind of thing ... some of the lines are a little off, there are apt to be typos and ... well, I'm sure there will be other bugaboos to come up! Please don't hesitate to let me know when you find something wrong and I will do my very best to fix it!


I will be doing a GIVEAWAY coming up soon that will be a printed planner all done up and ready to go ... from me to you! I will have a separate post announcing that giveaway but feel free to let me know in a comment here if you're interested ... I will start a list of names to throw in the proverbial hat!

OK, here we go ... my planner PDFs at long last!
