I am very happy to announce that ...

JENN LEWIS

... has won a copy of my homemade seasonal planner!

Congratulations, Jenn! You will be hearing from me very soon so we can sort out the mailing details! I am so excited to share my seasonal planner with you!! I hope it will be helpful to you and your family. :)

Thank you to ALL who entered my giveaway, and for your very kind thoughts and questions. Many of you have inquired about whether or not I plan to sell this planner and my answer is still ... yes, I hope so! I am doing my best to work out the kinks and "set up shop," if you will. I am aiming to have 2019 planners available to you all whether they are being offered for sale or available to print here at the blog. I will have news on that front sometime early this fall, and I hope you will all stay tuned. I will definitely keep you all posted!

(Please don't hesitate to let me know if you'd be interested - the more I sense interest, the more sure I am of publishing!)

Now one of those aforementioned "kinks" is a dilemma concerning my monthly divider pages. As I've shown you all before, I like to use a very charming set of "vintage" look scrapbooking paper for my planner ... it's honestly been one of my very favorite things about this planner! But, here's the thing ...

If I am selling my planner,then I run into copyright issues when using someone else's work! (Also, that particular paper has recently gone out of print!) So, I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with something else that would be fun and pretty and charming in its own right - plus, seasonal of course!

So here's my idea ...

This is a "mock up" of a potential monthly divider page. I'm taking photos I've posted at my blog through the years, and using them to create colorful "seasonal" collages. Printed on sturdy ivory cardstock, I think these could work as handy dividers - setting apart each monthly section! (Though I sure will miss those vintage papers - they were unique and delightful, and I know many of you loved them too.)

More to come on my seasonal planner - including lots of "How-To" posts here at the blog. Please bear with me for a couple of weeks while life gets quite busy here - we're enjoying the last couple of weeks of summer, seeing Crackerjack off to his freshman year of college, and getting started on a new year of homeschooling (our 19th!) with Little Bear and Earlybird. I feel like I need to hit the "pause" button right now, but goodness knows life keeps on moving!

So I'll be back again just as soon as I can, but you can always find me on Instagram and Facebook! Also, feel free to email me if you'd like, though I will confess, I'm slow as molasses when it comes to e-correspondence, lol!
