September planner - mambi

Since I recently created a planner for my son's first week of school with the Weekly Planner Pad, it was time I got busy with MY first week of HIS back to school.  Time for a bit of pampering!  A spa day with my chums, lunch date and coffee with other pals.  Just ignore the nap, nap, nap listed for after church on Sunday!  

I started this spread with a color combo.  Many of you have been asking on Instagram and Facebook what the pens I am using.  I love love love the Paper Mate Flair pens.  They come in a variety of colors, and do not bleed through my planner pages or run.  I decided on a very girly palette, just what a mom who stayed home all summer with a boy and his pals, needs.  This spread is about me, my colors, my plans, my favorites.  Absolutely NO ONE else!  I deserve this right?  So do you.  Don't forget to tag The Happy Planner on IG so we can all see what you have been doing to keep yourself, or your family organized.

I made my own paperclips with clips, cardstock paper and stickers!

Weekly Planner Pad - mambi

Sometimes, it is important to get your kids involved.  This is a time where it is necessary in our house.  Going back to school is not a welcome event around here.  So, with a busy "kid" schedule rapidly coming towards us, I decided to use my Weekly Planner Pad to help my boy understand his responsibilities.  Plus, it will help me get him where he needs to go on time.  I asked him if he would like to help decorate my planner pad.  He chose all the stickers and the color of the markers that were added here.  He had the most fun choosing the washi we used from my wide collection.   More activities will arise the first week of school so I had to leave some space for that.  I know music will be added once we get the schedule.

After washi tape, the first thing he wanted me to add is the bus.  Even a kid going into 5th grade, loves bright primary colors.  It was fun to do together.  Better than his Minion calendar hanging in his room with NOTHING written on it!  Maybe together, we can mold him into a planner addict too!

I used the Paper Mate Flair pens that I use for my Happy Planner too.  They do not bleed or run, they are perfect and offer tons of colors!
