<><><> Winner Announcement <><><>
Because she feels like a gerbil in a wheel
The winner is DENISE!!
Congrats, will forward your email address to the Personal Planner people.
Lists, diaries, calendars… all a necessary part of my life.
New Years Eve I have a little ritual.
I sit down and fill in the calendars for the new year,
writing in birthdays, anniversaries and upcoming appointments.
We have quite a few calendars in our house and I write up these things in two of them.
I also feel semi-naked without a diary.
I keep it in my handbag and it gets checked often.
I write in play dates, birthday parties, appointments, work days, holiday dates.
And lists….
Don’t get me started on lists!
I could write a list of my lists
But I won’t!!!
So imagine my delight when I learnt about Personal Planner

Personal Planners allows you to design your own planner
You have a choice of 4 sizes
From small (11x14cm) to a large one (A5 size, 16x21cm)


You can change the colour and text of the front/back cover as well as inlay
Keep it simple with a plain cover
you can spice it up by choosing on of the gorgeous designs available on the site.
you can add your very own photo or digital design.
Isn’t that the coolest?
But wait there is more!


You get to choose the start date of the planner
You can have a printed page with owner information
You can personalise the pages at the back, with optional year overview
It includes a plastic sleeve and ruler that doubles as page marker
You can add boxes for to-do lists, gym sessions, preschool, idea of the week (I Love this idea!) or even… the weather!
You can have your friend’s and family member’s birthdays added to the inlay directly from Facebook
(oh the brain strain this would ease!)
The postage price is included in the cost!

But wait there is more!!
They make planners but they also make personalised Notebooks!
How super cool is that!?!?!
Almost as cool as this…
You could win your very own planner!!
