I couldn't sleep last night so I curled up in the spare room with my Canvo and started getting organized for January writing down design team committments and due dates.
Then I started thinking about my goals. I have some things I want to accomplish in 2019. Actually if I'm being honest they are things that I've wanted to accomplish for a while but for reasons I can't explain I feel ready and decided that this is the year!
I wrote them down and just doing that much felt good. Then I made a plan. I'm going to use the Weekly Brain Dump page you see on the right to keep track of where I am and what I need to accomplish that week to get me closer to my goals.
What's the Canvo you ask?
It's Catherine Pooler's spin on the bullet journal.
It's a place for your calendar, your to-do lists and for your journalling.
It's for whatever you want it to be for.
You can do monthly spreads, weekly spreads, daily spreads, a combination of all of them or none of them. You could just make to-do lists, you could make a page for each of your goals and set out a plan for how you want to achieve it.
You can make it a journal, an art journal, a gratitude journal...
I think you get the idea.
You can make it whatever you want it to be.
You can be as creative or as minimalist as you want.
You can be creative one week and a minimalist the next.
The heavy weight paper works great with water-based markers, stamps and ink which allows you to be as creative as you want.
You can choose between these two covers.
The Aquatini Canvo or the Doodle Garden Canvo.
I couldn't decide so I ordered the Aquatini one and stamped the inside page to match the Doodle Garden one.
It's the best of both!
There's a whole world of planners and bullet journals out there and I've tried a LOT of them. My favorite thing about this one is the paper. The quality is like nothing I've ever seen before in any planner.
Yes, I am on Catherine Pooler's design team but I want to be clear about something. She did not send these out to us. We purchased these with our own money and when mine is close to being full, I will be purchasing another one.
She has all kinds of stamps and stencils and even a monthly Canvo Club you can join. You can see them all H E R E and I've purchased some of them BUT don't feel like you need to have everything. All you really need to get started is a Canvo and a pen. Your own style will dictate what else you want to have to use in your Canvo.
What are your goals for the New Year!
How are you going to keep track of them?
Whatever they are I hope you achieve them all.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
