Are you a busy mama often scrambling to organize the thoughts in your head and a to-do list a mile long? You and me, both! One of the only ways I feel on top of my life and the many things I have to do is to get it all down on paper. But that habit has left me with random lists laid all over the house – probably as unorganized as you can get!
List making alone gave me momentary relief, but the next day I would feel overwhelmed again. It makes me think of that quote “Stop the glorification of busy.” Um – glorification?? Who is glorifying this constant feeling of overwhelming chaos?? Not me! That’s just how my life works now that I have kids! Chances are, you often feel the same way. It’s probably why you’re reading this post.
>> Introducing: The Busy Mama Coloring Planner <<
Once I realized how unorganized I had become and how my disorganization led to feelings of anxiety and chaos, I decided it was time I did something about it. I’ve always loved planners, but I never found one that I truly loved and just had to have. Considering how much I love creative projects, it’s no surprise I started creating one myself!
Why You Need The Busy Mama Coloring Planner & Organizer
- Keep track of you and your family’s important information.
- Stay on top of important dates, gifts, and goals!
- Monthly, plus weekly or daily calendar pages give you freedom to plan the way you like.
- Relax and de-stress by coloring through each page, plus all the additional coloring pages throughout.
- Choose whether you want the remainder of year 2017, the school year 2017-2018, or the calendar year 2018.
- Pick between spiral binding and a 3-ring binder to hold your pages together. (The spiral binding comes with a plastic cover to protect your planner, while choosing the 3-ring binder allows you to add in or take out pages as you please.)
With the Busy Mama Coloring Planner, now all of my thoughts are collected in one place. I can keep track of everything – from family schedules to bill due dates, from medical info to weekly to-do lists. The Busy Mama Planner gets all my thoughts down on paper in a neat, organized way. Plus, I get to choose the colors! There are coloring pages and doodles throughout the entire Busy Mama Coloring Planner, and I get to decide what colors go where and relieve stress while I’m at it! 😉
Why a coloring planner?
Did you know art therapy is a real thing? Yep. I even have a friend from college getting her degree to become an Art Therapist. While coloring at home isn’t actual art “therapy” given that there’s no therapist present, coloring is a relaxing way to calm the mind and unwind after a hard day. It reduces anxiety, helps you focus, and promotes mindfulness. Check out this article from CNN to learn more about the benefits of coloring as an adult.
What does it come with?
Every planner comes with monthly 2-page spread calendars, contact information pages, coloring pages, note pages, and lots of extra goodies (check out the video above for more).
You’ll be able to choose between the additional weekly spread calendar or a daily planner option, and choose whether you want it to be spiral bound or bound in a 3-ring binder. I love the spiral binding, but the 3-ring binder is my personal fave, because it makes the planner customizable. It allows me to add in or take out pages whenever I like – and seeing as how there are already planner additions in the works (like co-parenting pages and budgeting pages) I know I’ll be adding a lot!
And for those of you (like me!) who love stickers – there are also planner stickers available to pre-order as well! Each sticker set has an assortment of hand-drawn stickers designed specifically to fit your Busy Mama Coloring Planner. Check them out in the shop as well!
Starting today, readers will be able to PRE-ORDER the Busy Mama Coloring Planner & Organizer exclusively through Kandy Apple Mama’s Shop.
***All orders will be shipped starting September 1, 2017! ***
