2010 DIY Planner Templates [Sep. 18th, 2009=08:12 pm]
amanda
Hi LJ!

Had a request for a 2010 at-a-glance a few weeks ago and decided to put a new little set together. Most of the pages are blank so that you can fill in the days / month / year yourself!

Download: 2010 DIY Planner Templates (7.94 MB)

I use nice textured/thick paper for my planner and always print on both sides -- depending on which side you're printing you'll want more space for a 3-hole punch! For that reason, the download contains duplicates of some pages pushed to the left or the right side of the page... I also recommend using the 'fit to page' printer setting which will make them a bit smaller but keep it from being cut off on the edges.

DIY Planner Templates - 2010

DIY Planner Templates - 2010

Above is just a basic daily page, choose the date on the top and then draw or take notes or whatever you'd like. There's a 1 & 2 at the bottom that I imagined would be a to-do list - could be anything though!

DIY Planner Template - Month

This one is a monthly view but with an extra space under each week to include weekly notes, recurring appointments or events that span multiple days. So you can write those things underneath in the week space and leave room in the day for individual events.

Business website launch! [Jul. 20th, 2009=01:24 pm]

late

I've been working on littlebirdllc.com since last fall. Designed 10 different versions, coded about 6, started in Drupal and ended with Wordpress. Do all designers have such a hard time designing their own business sites? It's just never right, never cool enough, never finished. I decided on Saturday that this had gone on TOO long. Imagine my surprise when I actually came up with a design I liked right after deciding I just wanted to get something up? Design is funny like that. It's still a work in progress, but it's something. Thanks for reading!

It's been 16 weeks since I updated this journal and people have been adding me everyday, weird! Here's something fun though - I made a 'How-to-make-a-square-bag' tutorial finally!!!

It's on my blog: http://ahhh-design.com/square-bag-tutorial/
Here's part of it!

Directions
To start you'll need 2 rectangles of fabric 34.5"x17.5" - one piece will be the outside body and the other will be the inside. Fold one side of the fabric in 12" - from the unfolded piece measure in 1" and cut the fabric away on each side (pictured below). This will be the flap of the bag.

Step 0

Step 1

.............a few million(10?) steps later and tada!!!Collapse )

Hola! I started my new job today and it's wonderful. I have an office with a door and yellow walls and a brand new Apple comp. I was an hour early 'cause it only took 20 min. to drive there, so I napped in my car and took photos of power lines with my new digital Christmas camera.

I finally finished making the notebook for all my insert pages. It took me soooo long, it's for a friend - his bday and congratulations on moving and good luck gift. He's a songwriter, and I wanted to make him something for keeping track of shows and lyrics... I went a little overboard! I can't wait to start the next one for my sister! It's going to be 3-ring binder size and I already made her a pencil case and matching business card holder for it! You can see that and more images of the organizer on flickr!

What a Sunday.

I bought tons of frames- stuck in my drawings and created an Etsy account for selling.
I also started a Flickr account, cause that seems like the place to be these days.

Let's be friends there too.

For those of you on Flickr, is it worth it to have the paid account? I uploaded my pictures and hit the 200 limit pretty quickly. I can't decide if I need more than 200, that seems like enough? HAha. Anything else cool about the paid account? Their description on the subject isn't very detailed.

I wish it was Friday, Sunday nights are so depressing.

I spent a majority of the day working on this project.

I saw this post in organizers earlier and I've been completely immersed since!

Idea came from DIY Planner which is unfortunately offline for the day, it's an amazing site with tons of cool links and templates. I've been wasting hours on the site for at least a year but never really used anything from it until today.

It's still in progress, but I'll make it available for download when it's complete- it's sized for 4x6 cards right now, that might change though. I'd really like to have a letter sized version. So far my favorite case for organizing is a 3-ring binder.
