Emily Pitts + keeping deadlines organized = success!

Emily Pitts + keeping deadlines organized = success!

How do you plan and organize your life? I know there are as many ways as there are people, but I thought I'd show you a few that I'm loving right now.

 The past few years, I've found the Task feature in my Gmail account works well for me to have all the work deadlines that I have in one place. You can check the box when it's done, such a good feeling! And I hate to admit this, but I JUST figured out (on accident) I could attach emails to that list! That is the coolest thing ever and is going to make my life much easier! It's very basic and works well for me, but it's not terribly cute. Enter my next two ideas.


The Scrapbook and Cards Today 2015 Planner is BEAUTIFUL! It's a desk calendar with lots of inspiration and fun ways to record your ideas. There are places for lists and story starters, plenty of places to record your thoughts or random ideas. I love that they are cute little boxes that I can cut out and use them right in my scrapbooking! Monthly calendars with big boxes to keep track of your day to day schedule. You'll find full sized layouts as well as step out photos of the techniques used. 


I got to contribute to the Planner this year and had a little more fun with my technique than I should have. I have never done dry embossing, but had an idea and it worked! Here's a sneak of what I did. 


Plenty of inspiration from a bunch of very talented designers, it's a calendar plus an idea book all in one. Preorders start this Friday, the 10th of October and I'd suggest you act fast! Last year sold out quick!

    I love gmail tasks – have to figure out what you mean about attaching emails to it. I can’t remember life without Google.
    Love your contribution to the planner!
