List Your Blessings [free printable/insert]

This printable started out as notepaper but morphed into more of an insert.  Even on my worst days I always have something to be thankful for, and at Thanksgiving especially I like to ponder my blessings and list the things that I am most grateful for. I've made a special list for just that purpose and am sharing it with you.  [8.5x5.5]

Thanksgiving Inserts

It's Thanksgiving Week at Planner Fun - one of my most favorite times of the year!  Thursday morning we will have 18 family members in our home for Thanksgiving lunch and a lot of preparation takes place in the days before.  I made these inserts two years ago and every year I change the date and use them again.  I hope you will be able to use them!

This is an old image - the dates are correct on the insert!

Bullets to Inserts

I could spend hours on Pinterest looking at bullet journal layouts!  Each layout is made personally by the journal's creator to fit their own needs, and because of that, they are all so creative!  I've recreated a couple for my own personal use and in the past, shared some with you.  I am starting a new series where every week I will take a bullet journal layout and convert it to a planner insert.  Sometimes the insert will look very similar to the original and at other times it will be "based on" the original.

The first layout/insert in the series has actually been created two different ways.  The original is a one-page weekly layout that has a column for the days of the week and a second column that has an area for memorization (in her case it was scripture), to-do's, notes for next week, and task tracking - and I made one very similar to it.  The second layout is the same except I switched out the memorization part for areas for money matters and a "things we need" section.

Feel free to send me links to layouts you are interested in seeing converted.

In the future, you will see links to the original bullet journal layout.  In this case, the layout was found on Pinterest and posted as an image - no link to the original.  If you have seen this layout before and can direct me to the creator, I would be so grateful.

UPDATE:  I found the creator! She says this layout is a popular one. You can visit Christine to see more of her awesome layouts.

Taking You Back: TV Episode & Series Tracker

For convenience sake, I watch my favorite television shows online and find that I am always asking my boys, "What episode are we on again?"  After realizing I was doing that, I remembered that I had created an insert two years ago to track television series.  I looked it up, printed it out and jotted down my favorites.  Let's go back in time to the TV Episode and Series Tracker.

Free Insert: Week at a Glance on Graph Paper

As I shared with you in September, I began using a week on one-page layout during the summer which also functioned as a dashboard or landing page. It's the very first sheet in my planner and is my go-to page to check dates and appointments.  Since school started back,I went back to using a 2-page weekly spread but so far I am still putting that week at a glance page to good use. [See it here]

This insert also has two boxes at the top to use however you wish and they also just happen to be the same size as a small post-it note.  If you want to check out this 8.5 x 5.5 sized sheet, you can download a copy below.

Every week as I change the date and print out my own copy, I will also share the dated copy here on the blog.  If you would like a blank template to fill in your own dates instead, go here to download.

A Note to my Readers

This past June, my family went on an internet break until the election was over. We took this time to pray for our country and, as an added bonus, we were able to avoid most of the negatives from a presidential election.

But now I am back!  I have the internet back full-time and I am ready to blog again.  Actually, I've missed it quite a bit!  With homeschooling, I stay consistently busy, so I won't be posting every single day (at least not inserts), but hope to maintain a healthy balance with all of my responsibilities.

So, I hope you will stay tuned. Please feel free to send suggestions and ideas you would like to see on the blog.  Thanks for being patient with my absence - I hope to talk with many of you soon.
