This AtoZ Blogging Challenge is going to be about my planner’s. But I’m going to start from the beginning of my Planner /Journaling road and today’s letter is perfect. I started planning/journaling because of a book I read in school. That book would be,”The Diary of (A)nne Frank.” That book had such a profound impact on my life, well there are just no words for how that shaped my world.
So for today and the letter “A” will be for Mz. Anne Frank. But there is more to this story than her. I am also an Archiver, Blogger and Writer. I love things from the past. Anyone who knows me, certainly would agree with that statement. The husband sketched a picture of her for me, he’s a great guy ❤ I have kept a plethora of newspapers, magazines, pictures anything that tells me a story worth keeping and remembering. I know that the past is over, gone but what do they say about the past…If you don’t learn from the past, you will be doomed to repeat it.
When I think about the past, I don’t dwell on the negativity of things. There’s just no reason for that. I just love remembering and I try to keep everything Archiver safe, which is no easy task…
As I was driving today running errands, I remembered what the husband told me. He said, “The past are your review mirrors and your future is the windshield. Do you see the difference in the size. The windshield is much larger than the rearview mirrors. It’s necessary to see what’s in back of you, but so much more important to see what’s right in front of you. Hopefully you’ll go in the direction that is best for your life and not make a wrong turn and get lost.” That said it all for me. Okay I’m done pontificating now we can get to the fun stuff.
It’s been a great day. I got all three of my (A)pril planner kits. My favorite day of the month is when they come. So exciting !!!! Yes I get three b/c you never know if your going to need something extra. So for today I’m just going to show you the April kits from The Planner Society (link to her shop below) and I’ll leave the rest of what I do with all my planner stuff for future letters…
This is the link for The Planner Society. She has one of the best planner supply kits. Really if you are interested, check her out !!! She’s also on Instagram.
I’ve also started my Crafty Club Playbook/Spring Edition for April. I’m going to be so busy with the planning and writing. I’ll try to keep posting and show you how it’s working out. I’m really excited to dig into this ❤
Here’s the link for the Crafty Club Playbook. It’s really very cool…
I will be letting you in on my Commonplace Book too. That’s another really fun one. I started this one along time ago. I use it to write in anything quotes, ideas, yadayadayada. It’s a fun book too.
Let me know what you think and good luck with the Challenge blogger’s. This is my 4th year doing the challenge and I just love it. Make sure you visit other people’s blog, it’s a great group of people out there in the blogosphere and it’s fun to see what people are up too. Also a great place to make some new friends, but as always when dealing with the computer be safe. Happy AtoZ Challenge ❤
One final thought, I’m so sorry to say it looks as if our Chicago Blackhawks season is just about over 😦 They ran out of road, so looks like it’ll have to be maybe next year. I really hope so b/c now that baseball has started, well I just don’t get into that as much as my hockey guys !!!
