“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25
Happy Hump Day! I pray everyone’s week is bursting with productivity and new opportunities! One of the things that I have been trying to do for the past few weeks is planning ahead. Especially for the blog. It has always been a blog goal of mine to be 1-3 months ahead of schedule. Having makes and post ideas done a season ahead frees me up to do other things as well as be more consistent with my posting.
I’ll be honest planning ahead is not really one of my strongest characteristics but it is something I have had to be intentional about. One of those intentional actions included using a blog and sewing planner. I had been looking for one for awhile without success.
Until an opportunity to collaborate with Dari from “that style though” sewing blog. She put out a request for testers on instagram for her soon to be released 2019 sewing planner. I thought “great…! why not help someone else out and see if her planner layout works for my planning needs.”
This was definitely a win for me. I love her planner because not everyone’s sewing process is the same and this gives you multiple ways to use it. If your a sewing blogger or vlogger you can use it for that. If your a sewist and just want a way to map out your design ideas from conception to finished garment; it definitely allows you to do that as well.
What I particularly like is that it allows you to organize your makes by seasons and/or months. For me, I am a seasonal sewing planner and I used it to map out my fall/winter makes not only for the blog but also for some other projects i’m beginning to work on for 2019.
I also like that it walks you through a project planning process which includes a mood board, a color palette page, a sheet to sketch out some of my ideas, pages to document the patterns I plan on using for my projects and even a closet inventory sheet.
Well that’s all for now! Until next time!
