Big Happy Planner Giveaway

I’m terrible at waiting.

Winter is so hard for me because I spend the entire time waiting for spring to come. If I could only embrace the snow and ice and bitter cold that so many people seem to enjoy, I’m sure winter would go by faster.

I’m getting better, I suppose… life with children will do that, right? I don’t want to know how many minutes of my life I have spent waiting on a little person to get dressed, put his shoes on, go to the potty, pull up his pants, or pick up his toys. (Actually, who am I kidding– I don’t have the patience to wait on little people to pick up their toys.) I know patience is a virtue and all that… and I’m sure I will continue to have many opportunities to practice waiting. But it sure is nice when winter is finally over and the wait for spring comes to an end. (For example)

And it’s even better when something comes along and you realize that instead of having to wait, say three months to use your favorite planner, you can actually start using it next week. (For example)

MAMBI Happy Planner Giveaway

I found the Big Happy Planner at Michael’s last weekend and fell in love. It’s so pretty. And spacious. And pretty. I knew the calendar inside didn’t start until July but I wasn’t worried because I have a couple of other planners I can use. But as soon as I actually held it, I wished that I could start using it right away.

Big Happy Planner Dated Inserts, April, May, June 2016

And so, I did what I do best. I figured out a way to avoid waiting!

I designed some dated calendar inserts for April, May, and June and am really happy with how they turned out. They are printed on thick 28# paper which makes them look sooo nice!  (Update- I just added them to my Etsy store if you’d like to purchase them!)

In celebration of the arrival of spring (yay!) and in honor of not having to wait if you don’t have to (double yay!), I am giving away a Big Happy Planner and a set of my April-June inserts!


Yes- I am GIVING AWAY a BIG Happy Planner.

“Free? As in you’ll ship it to me and everything?”

Yes, free. And I’ll ship it to the winner (domestic or international!)

Happy Planner Free Grocery List Printable Insert

Happy Planner Freebie Grocery List Free Printable

Hello fellow planners– I hope your week has gotten off to a great start! The more I use my Happy Planner, the more I love it. I really like how it combines my need for organization and structure with my love of creativity and visual expression. This planner gets me. It’s my new BFF.

While I definitely use my planner for appointments and upcoming events, I’ve moved away from writing every last thing I need to remember in the boxes. After spending so much time making my weekly spread pretty, the last thing I want to do is scribble all over it! Instead, one of my favorite *functional* ways to use my planner is to include a blank page for jotting down notes, errands, etc. I can change out the page when it gets filled up or when the info is no longer needed.

Happy Planner Printable Insert To Do List

Of course, I could do the same thing with sticky notes or blank paper, but having a cute to-do list or grocery list already printed up makes my day just a little bit brighter. And there are days when I really, really need that extra bit of happiness. I know I’m not the only one, so I wanted to share a Free Printable Grocery List with you that is perfectly sized for the Happy Planner. Just print, trim it down (using the guides) and punch using the new MAMBI hole punch or Arc punch.
