I’m Doing Documented Life 2016

I totally failed in my attempt to do the Documented Life Project last year. In my quest in being brave and opening up an Etsy shop, I was busy with keeping stock in the shop while working a full time job, which left little time for play. This year I’m making time for things that I love and things that I enjoy and the Documented Life Project is definitely one of those things. The cost to join is $12 and you can buy the basic supplies on the site as well (or just use what you have).

The format is a bit different this year, using a small binder and print outs for calendars. I really like the chunky feel of it with all the added pieces, colorful art cards, and lots of lists. They are calling it an un-Planner because there really is no set way to do anything…you can make it like you want and add whatever you want.

There is monthly theme and a weekly challenge to incorporate into the u-planner, which gives some direction, but you are free to fly with what works for you. I love that.

Here is what I started with (I did purchase the kit.)

I started by painting the outside of the binder, printed out the calendar pages, and worked on the challenges for the past 2 weeks. I love how there is a bit of color here and there. You can do as much as you want or as little, which works for me with my busy schedule.

How are you staying organized this year?Β
