I love Franken Planning!
In my very first happy planner, I took outdated calendar pages and mixed media’d all over them to make backgrounds for art journaling.
I’ve been using them as backgrounds for lettering practice.
But I wanted some heavier paper in my planner for Watercolor play.
First I traced an old divider as a template.
Then I cut it out & used the happy planner punch to add it to my Franken Planner 😍
Ugh. I caved. I bought a new happy planner. I blame my craft store enabler. 😂
It’s so PRETTY
Here’s my last happy planner. I liked the customizing options but I hated the way my pages got eaten.
The remnants of two planners I cobbled together.
The new planner is 2019 only. So I stole an unused month from the remains of the previous two planners.
I washi-d the top and stickered over the dates.
And worked my way through the rest of December.
In my old happy planner I had art journaled some out of date months so I added those in too.
I’m also experimenting with building my own dividers. 😁
So the bitchy planner has returned to happy planning. Guess I’m a happy bitch planner now. 😂😂😂
NPR but definitely organization related!
I have this 2 ft x 3 ft cork board that has seen better days. Cue me forgetting to take a before pic…again. 😂
Here’s the new support for the back of the cork. Before it was just foam core and cardboard. The cork was warping from lack of support. I bought new foam core.
And lots of pretty fabric. I should not be left unattended at Joann’s. I even called the husband to tell him I was skipping through the store with my daughter trying to buy ALL THE THINGS. 😂
Cut the foam core the size of the plywood backing.
Glued the foam core to the plywood.
Glued the foam core & plywood to the cork.
Laid it cork side up and centered the fabric.
Lots of spray adhesive.
Put it back in its frame & added some support pieces at the edges.
Finished and hung up.
IT’S SO CREEPY I COULD DIE!
I fucking love it. 😍
