A Walk Through The Ultimate Homeschool Planner

Hello again my lovelies! This week we started back at our lessons so I thought that I would take you on a photo-tour of the planners we are using this year. I started our homeschooling years (The first five or six in fact) by making my own planner. I really enjoyed doing this because I was able to customise it to …

My Multi-Faceted Planning System

Seriously. Are there any others out there who love to plan and organise? I really do enjoy this part of keeping my home, days, weeks, months and of course our homeschool. If you not all that into planning, well I completely understand if you don’t read my warblings all the way through 😀 I have a multi-faceted system. Each facet supports the …

I even found two UFOs in amongst the pages which have been popped onto the ‘stitch me’ list. In the past I have had …

Planner Talk
