Check Out This Nifty Free Planner From Esther Coombs

esther_planner

I found this cute weekly planner page free at Modish, a great site with resources for people growing creative businesses.  Sorry, I can’t figure out how to show you a full size version, but if you click the Modish link above, you can download the planner (free), then print and just write on it. 

(It’s especially fun that she’s made “Nap/Coffee” after lunch each day a permanent feature.)

Here’s a sample of how I’m using the planner this week.  The colors and graphics somehow encourage me to think I get to do these things rather than I have to do these things.

London artist Esther Coombs, who created this, is an artist after my own heart.  That’s because she refashions old stuff into beautiful new stuff.  In her case, it’s vintage china and tableware upon which she works her magic.  Check out her site here

Thank you Sallymandy for introducing us to this artist and her work.

Fun peeking over your shoulder and seeing some of your scheduled activities.

Love it. LOVE. IT:
I downloaded the calendar. Now, do you print it and write on it or what?

Thanks for your email. I did not get the first one, you must've deleted it.

(you need geek too?)

You find the coolest stuff! I wonder how she transfers her drawings to china. It is so delicate and interesting!

Glad you like this, everyone.

Lola: yes, you print it out and then write on it. Do I need a geek? Yes, always. But then again, I sort of am one, of a different kind.

Thanks for the link. I love a calendar that reminds me to do what I already do. It makes me feel accomplished. And, le sigh, love those plates!
