I remember the frustrations I felt when trying to find a planner. You want to remove the overwhelm, clear your mind + know that everything is taken care of. Know that your search is not in vain.
There are three things you need to know to create your perfect planner + I’d love to share them with you. When you combine your unique personality, with the way you see the world + get things done you can confidently organise + enjoy your day!
I want to help you make plans, share moments + live a life you love!
When we live a life we love, there is time for the things that matter most. That includes those we love + seeing our dreams become reality. We have strategies to keep from overwhelm + know that having time to enjoy life is just as important as getting things done.
Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we were created to live the good life that God prearranged for us. The Message translation has such an abundant energetic feel for the goodness God has for us. And so that is my goal. To discover who He’s made me to be + help others do the same. There is room for all of us to let our gifts + talents shine. In fact the world needs what you have!
I’m Jacqui, a qualified graphic designer + business owner for the past 20+ years. I’m a work-at-home-schooling mum. It really just means that I’m blessed to be able to spend a good chunk of time connecting with my family as we learn + earn together.
My schedule doesn’t have the usual separation of responsibilities. Because my day is a mix of schooling, working + being a mum, I need a fluid + flexible way of doing life. I’m no super mum, I’ve simply embraced the opportunity of shaping my day to do what matters most.
I find it a challenge to stick to the way it’s always been done. I can’t help but bust out of convention and try something new. Needless to say my planner goes through a metamorphosis on a semi regular basis.
I believe that finding your perfect planner begins with knowing who you are, what makes you tick + what makes you uniquely YOU!
As an innovator + planner I enjoy organising, creating systems and designing products. Which really just means there is nothing I like to do more than making things to help us plan + capture moments that matter!
Nothing is sweeter than when it all rolls into a planner!
I also know from personal experience, how the power of gratitude can transform our lives. Psalm 92:2 showed me that thankfulness is to be the bookends of my day. And so I start with thankful + end with awesome.
Taking a few moments each morning + evening gives me the opportunity to recognise the gifts I’ve been given, everyday. It’s good for our heart + mind to be thankful + say so.
As Wayne Dyer says, “Change the way you see things, the way you see things will change“. While this one of my many favourite quotes I don’t adhere to his philosophy. I simply appreciate the phrase that captures so simply many of the things the Bible teaches us. One that challenges my mindset often is, “As a man thinks in his heart so is he” ~ Proverbs 23:7. I can choose to find fault + be annoyed or I can find the good + joy. What I choose to focus on shapes my attitudes, actions + my life.
Needless to say gratitude is part of the foundation of my life + it’s a core part of why I do what I do.
I want to help more people live a thank filled life by recognising what they receive + giving to others. A great place to start is by counting your blessings in gratitude journalling and in random acts of kindness. It can be a card to say thanks or maybe you can pay for the coffee of the person lined up behind you.
Snail mail hasn’t gone away … yet. All packed into that envelope is an accumulation of the time + energy of how much we care, that is delivered in that physical thanks.
Whoever said “Love makes the world go round” was on to something! and it sure makes the ride worthwhile.
Thanks for visiting with me + I invite you to see Colour + Study, the product inspired by my passion for gratitude + planners.
