"I received a free copy of the book in exchange for writing a review on my blog"
In life, I found myself loving so many things that I can create. In addition to this, there is one thing I've always wanted to learn how to do, and that is to add additional style to my everyday organizer and journal. I've heard so much about this but never had any idea on how too. I'm sure I'm not alone with this. We all have so many notepads, calendars, journals, or an organizer of some sort that we use daily to mark important details and write down future and daily chores or plans. So why not get creative and make that daily organizer or book of plans look even better!
That is why I am so happy to share with you a wonderful book that is unlike any other. The book, The Planner Book by Jean Sagendorph and Dawn DeVries Sokol is a great way to get anyone organizing and planning like an artist. Also, this book not only helps you be creative with that planner or book you write in daily, but you learn how to get a bit more crafty with additional accessories you can use for yourself and the organizer. There are so many ideas inside this book that can't be found with other books on journaling. In addition, these projects take everyday objects that may be simple enough to find or buy cheap and repurpose them into something brilliant!
When I first took a glance at this book, I got super excited about everything you can make and the directions, which are so simple to follow. I think it was the projects which had me thrilled start working on a few this weekend. Especially like the perfect traveler notebook cover I can sew and some of those interesting bookmarks, like the monkey's fist. Honestly, the monkey fist was something I really wanted to learn to make and now I know how too, all thanks to this book! Additionally, this project is easy to follow and create, just like every other project inside. Even if you aren't a crafter, these projects and journal designing can be simple enough to understand and even build upon with your own fun ideas.
