Kim Oedekoven: Monthly Review in Bookish Standard Dori


I think a lot of us, myself included, save our planner pages each month so that we have a collection of all the events and activities that shaped our year. Well, why not a monthly review of all the other things that we have an interest in throughout the month to add to our little time capsule?

As we begin with the outside cover, I've added the micro from the Bookish Planner Add-On Kit on each of the tags on the inside of the Bookish Planner Kit papers. This way I have some journalling prompts to guide my memories as the month unfolds.

While I love the bold look of the sticky notes, I did cover up the "Today" writing on top to make my own headers for each of the sections. It created space for the right amount of writing on specific topics. I placed it at an angle for a whimsical feel.

Cocoa Daisy kits do encompass all types of life circumstances, like this quote card from the Bookish Traveler's Notebook Memory Keeping Kit. It's not all sunshine even when we wish it to be. It is okay to write about the things that are troubling us too. Just like a protagonist in a great novel, a little human drama is to be expected.
I'm playing with paper size which is a good way to add a little visual interest too. I took out a sheet from the Bookish Standard Daisy Dori, cut it on the fold line, and created a stapled tip in type by just folding it 1/3 of the way across.

Enjoy your March Memories!
