Lately, we've been thinking of using our MINI Happy Planner® as a notebook! That's what mambi Design Team member @plannerdarlingg has been doing because it's so easy to carry with her! Notes on a new room makeover, putting together a spring capsule wardrobe, and new blog post ideas for the upcoming months have been jotted down and prettied up in her MINI. .
.
About these pages, Marisa writes: "I used some washi tape to add color to my pages and alphas from the 'Alphabet' sticker value pack to add titles to each page. The MINI sticky notes allow me to write down a quick thought if I need to, and I'm not a teacher, but that doesn't stop me from using the 'Teacher' stick rvalue pack! This sticker book has plenty of functional stickers like checklists, icon stickers, and reminder boxes, but also the sweetest motivational stickers!" .

You planner babes are L-O-V-I-N-G the mini Happy Planners™ and it's no mystery as to why! Not only are they convenient, portable, and cute - but their size makes them conducive to specific happy planning. You can't fit loads and loads of lists inside it, so you gals are using them for a streamlined focus only. We've seen mini Happy Planners™ used specifically for food & exercise logging, social media tasks, daily highlight journals, and today: we're sharing another interesting way to use one! .
.
Design Team member @sadieinspired has set up her mini for November as a way to write to her children. A journal of all her thoughts, hopes, moments of pride, quotes to encourage them, etc. that they could have and keep forever. .

This mini weekly layout may be monochromatic, however it's anything but one note. Today we're sharing how mambi Design Team member @plannerhappiness prettied up her MINI Happy Planner® using purple & gold embellishments, but also added stickers and a list paper for optimal function. .

REGRAM from @atutudes // Kristal Lee is a FOR REAL planner babe! Holding up her 'Peony' Happy Planner™ opened to this inspirational dashboard page, she writes: "Nothing is impossible if you keep an open mindset. Take my story for example. I am just a small town girl in rural Alabama living her dreams. Never let anyone tell you 'you aren't good enough, your dreams are dumb, no one wants your product, you won't be successful.' I was told these things by people close to me. I had two choices: believe in their disbelief or go forth and try anyhow. I chose to keep moving fearfully and bravely. One step at a time. One foot in front of the other. Slowly building upon each step until it was a path. And I am creating a life I love. People do want my products. I have built a community of creative friends and cheerleaders. So my challenge to you is to believe in yourself! You have a unique gift and a unique voice in this world. You will create your community and connect with your tribe. Never ever give up! You can do it."
.
How's that for Wednesday motivation?!

#ARZ_monthlyROUNDUP of December in my memory Keeping Happy Planner® is done & done AND YOU GUYS!!! All of 2016 is documented and I can't believe I did it!

Cheers to you, #ARZ_memorykeeping2016! YOU WERE SO SO GOOD TO ME! .

I know it's the middle of May, but here is how the April monthly pages came out in my memory keeping Happy Planner®. .
.
I tried to post a musical #ARZ_monthlyroundup slideshow like I have for the past 10 months - but suddenly, @instagram gets butt-hurt when you use clips of songs without rights, and forcibly removes the vid after upload. 😂🙈 Sooooo...a silent slideshow it is! Bye bye music! 👋😶 .

If you've taken my "Memory Keeping in The Happy Planner®" class with @bigpictureclasses, then you know the deal with my dashboard pages in The Happy Planner® I use for memory keeping. They are my 'scrapbooking moment', the pages on which I paper play, the only part of my memory keeping planner that I fill out before the month has begun - to convey the theme or feeling I have going into the month. .
.
I've been keeping with it for 2017, and I love that so many of you planner babes have been inspired by this technique! ✨😊✨ .

Here are the first few completed pages in my memory keeping Happy Planner® for this year: intro pages, dashboard pages, and the evolution & close up shots of my monthly pages. (#ARZ_monthlyROUNDUP).

This accumulation post at the end of every month is one of my favorite parts of the process! .

I LOVE my BIG Happy Planner® and the 'Currently Page' in it. There's so much space to write, put pictures, and load-it-up with stickers! Hope this inspires some of my fellow #PlannerBabes to use this space in a creative way! 😘☝🏽🤓 #Repost @the_happy_planner with @repostapp

Are you like mambi Design Team member @ericacanant, and have a hard time decorating your Happy Planner® 'Currently Page' each month? For Erica, she felt a major part of the problem was not having enough space in her CLASSIC size, and since moving in to the BIG 'Tranquility' Happy Planner® at the start of the year - she's been able to start utilizing these special pages and do some memory planning on them too! .
.
About it, Erica writes: "First, I picked a few of my favorite areas like 'reading', 'watching', and 'dreaming' and I used my Polaroid Zip Printer to print out pictures of the book I am reading, and the shows I am watching (any fellow #hearties and 'This is Us' junkies out there?!). For the birthday section, I printed out pictures of me with each birthday girl! Lastly, I printed out a picture of my monthly goal. Giving a visual of this goal will help me to stay more focused on it! ." .
.
Now that Erica's figured out how she's going to fill this page, and has more space in her BIG planner to do it, she's looking forward to completing it each month! .
