My first full on #decorativeplanning layout just in time for my Birthday which was in March! I’m very proud of myself for taking my time to do this. First time using #washitape too. I guess it also helps since I finally broke down to order some new cartridges for my Kodak Mini shot camera. It makes #memorykeeping in the Happy Planner and scrapbooking so much easier and fun. I also got a stash of new stickers and embellishments from Michaels.

2020 has afforded me the opportunity to slow down, reassess, review, and most importantly, write things down! This is a photo of all my planners. As a writer, one would think that journaling would have already been a habit for me, but it was not. I have not journaled in years. But since the pandemic, and since discovering @staciapierce #successjournals #blackownedbusinesses , I started journaling again AND planning! I’ve always been a sucker for planners but now I’m doing it way more strategically. I’ve also become a new fan of #90dayplans. I recently started using the @racheal.cook #CEOPlanner, the @savorlifeplanner #selfcare planner, the @cultivatewhatmatters #powersheets, the @contentcreatorsplanner for my social media, looking forward to the @planathon this fall with @ambermccue and I’m officially a @the_happy_planner addict, I have one for startup business, freelance projects, budget, online courses, 3 for writing stuff, calendar, etc. Yes it seems like a lot, but this system has actually helped me out a lot this year. It helps put everything in perspective. Oh and I can’t forget to shoutout the @Trello #ProjectManagement app and website, it’s awesome! #Busybee #PandemicEntrepreneur #Organized #HappyPlanner #freelancebiz #authorbusiness #poet #bookprojects #nonfictionbooks #blogger #podcast
Who me? Organized? If you saw my place, you might think otherwise, but I try. You know: work, grocery shopping, tidying up, paying bills, remembering appointments and so on. Fortunately, No one person can get everything done at once but all we can do is create systems that help our days and weeks run more smoothly.
Welcome to black girl happy planner! I wanted to launch this new blog for several reasons. 1) I realized that with all that 2020 has presented to me so far, I needed to create a happy space to get through this, and 2) To help channel my recent obsession with planners! I hope to share new products, planner reviews, and random fun photos, articles I’ve run across, and activities going on in my life, especially my fitness, health and wellness journey.
So thanks for stopping by and I hope you will follow and continue to support black girl happy planner!
Sincerely, Kellea (ivywriter)
