My “Black And White Music” And August Planner Layouts
I can’t remember the last time I wanted to write in my planner so much! This black and white layout with its swirls and music notes makes me so happy, and I can’t wait to fill in this week’s activities in it.
I started with black and white striped washi tape on the left and right edges, then layered metallic stickers on top of them. The four sections are labeled with titles all on a black background to keep the theme going. We received our Butcher Box order this week, so I’m looking forward to filling in the meal column with some new recipes. I’ve been looking through cookbooks to expand my horizons, so I’ll have some interesting cooking posts soon!
No page in my planner is more filled in at the end of the week than the right hand page. I’ve been working from home again for the past two weeks, but tomorrow I head back to the office. That means we’ll be super busy, and I’ll need every inch of space to stay focused and organized.
I use the monthly calendar to keep track of my blog post, so I’m on these two pages all the time. I didn’t realize how many coffee-themed embellishments until I started to design this page. Maybe next year I’ll just do my entire planner in coffee - I’d probably not have to buy any supplies for it!
For some reason I haven’t decorated these two pages, which come between the monthly and weekly layouts. For August, though, I want to use these more diligently and get my goals and plans down in writing. Hopefully that will motivate me to follow through and get some of my thoughts on paper. It’s a brand-new month, and I’m ready to take it on!
