2015 FREE PLANNER

(Podéis leer este artículo en Español aquí. ♦ Podem ler este artigo em Português aqui.)

QUICK UPDATE: I ALREADY HAVE A 2016 PLANNER IN THE MAKING. YOU CAN EXPECT IT TO BE PUBLISHED ON THE OCTOBER 7.

Hello hello!

2015 is coming and I am already thinking about what I want to accomplish this new year! One of my main goals is to better organize my time and my priorities. So, being the good planner I am (not a good doer, I’m afraid…), I made my own 2015 planner! Yeay! And you can download it for free! Just click here or on the image to get your PDF :)

Take a look at all I’ve included! I made it in an A5 format so I can print 2 pages per sheet, saving paper and making it easier to carry it with me.

If you decide to print it, don’t forget:

  • print 52 times the menu planner and the weekly planner (2 per sheet, so print only 26)
  • print 260 (without weekends) or 365 (weekends included) times the daily planner (2 per sheet, so print only 130 or 183 times)
  • print as many “Notes” pages as you wish
  • print as many “Passwords” and “Contacts” pages as you need 
  • print 1 cover, 1 index, 1 back cover, 1 “Main Goals” page, 1 annual calendar, 1 for each month, 1 birthdays calendar page

I didn’t print my own yet because I went to a copy shop to ask for prices and… prepare yourself! I got completely mad! 90€ YES, you read it well! Ninety euros! So, I’ll just wait and print it in Portugal, where it might be cheaper. I’ll then show it on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest, so stay tuned!

If you decide to print your own 2015 Rabiscarte Planner, you can take pictures of it and in case you have some social media platforms, share it with your friends, tagging me along the way :) I would be so grateful if you did that!

Here you can take a glimpse of each page. I hope you like it!

Yes! I’m back! Finally! Yes, my vacations ended in September, but coming back to the blog and the routines is very hard for me… You know, constancy is not my thing, let’s face it!

I have so many things to share that I don’t even know where I should begin. Nothing better than a list, don’t you think?

Let’s go!

I wrote some articles about Berlin for my dearest friend Luis Seco, author of the Fotoviajar blog. It’s in portuguese though, sorry! But I’m so proud of it! Please stop by his blog because even if you can’t read, you’ll always be able to appreciate his great awesome photos!

My sweat dear best husband in the world got me a drawing tablet!!! Yay! So, now I’m learning how to work with it (when Olivia allows me to…). More on that later too ;)

- CURRENT OBSESSIONS -

# 1
Canva! Oh my! I’m completely obsessed with this new application! It is quite new, so it has some bugs, but it’s awesome!!! Canva is a great tool to create posters, printables, business cards, infographics and whatever you want to design! I created some printables that you can freely download (by just clicking on each image)! I hanged some on my living room wall :)

Instagram! It’s so easy and fast to use… You can write whatever you want, with no limits or restrictions! And it’s an awesome tool to discover new people and artists! Currently I’m publishing some cool photos there, so I advise you to follow me, seriously! Just take a look! I promise you’ll like to follow me, because I may not be very regular with the blog, but I can’t stop creating and it’s much more easy for me to show my creations there.

MARACAS MADE OUT OF ORANGINA’S BOTLES FILLED WITH RICE, SALT, WATER AND JAPANESE MUGI-CHA BEANS

Olivia is very responsive to sounds, so I made these maracas to play with her. I filled some Orangina‘s bottles with rice, salt, water and Japanese Mugi-Cha beans to make different sounds. First I washed the bottles and submerged them in hot water so the label could come of. Then I filled them and protected the cap with some tape. You can watch the video and listen the sound of each bottle.

BLOG PLANNER FOR FREE

BANNER

For some time now, I’ve been using a BLOG PLANNER :) You know I love to plan things… And what’s a blog planner? you may ask. Well, it is just a notebook where I can organize my blog: a place to put all my ideas in order.

Before, I had a plain notebook and a bunch of random tables where I would write down some ideas for posts, interesting findings, appointments and a lot of other information. Then I realize that it would be much easier and practical to have those tables and that notebook all together in one. So, I started looking for a blog planner already made. I found three that were really well designed but they would not completely satisfy my needs. You can find them here, here and here. Therefore I created my own! It’s perfect for me and it’s very complete!

You can see how it is organized in the image below and you can downloaded it for free here! Or just click on the picture. Oh! And it’s translated to English!
