Here is how the planner is working out: I love it! I actually use it (usually a fail for me with calendars). I like having the planner and sketchbook all rolled into one. I'm also printing out little pictures of things I like though the week, and gluing them in. Other little things like stickers from mail I got or the logo from places I went are also being glued in.
The best part is the extra paper that's taped into the journal...lots of space to make lists, or collages, or sketches. Because I have these papers taped in, I leave my regular sketchbook in the car on my ordinary errands. If I'm stuck in a waiting room at the doctor's office or pharmacy, I've always got paper handy for a little sketch.
