Plan with Me | November 2020 Planner Design in MS Publisher

Saturday, October 31, 2020

As I struggle to find the creative juices to return to writing regularly, I have allowed my creativity to flow in other ways—and in ways that also indulge my left-brain/analytical side, such as designing and keeping a planner. And since I’m doing it, I might as well share it. So…

Come along on my graphic design journey as I set up my November 2020 planner pages (in high-speed, of course!).

The page layouts are my own design, created mainly in MS Publisher (the software used in this video), with a little help from Word and Excel. If you’re interested in purchasing these (as printable PDFs – without the artwork, just the grid designs), let me know.

The artwork is “Fall Digital Scrapbook KPaper Washi Tape Clip Art Pinwheel Banner Pendant Flag Watercolor Crisp Fall” by PrettifulDesigns on Etsy

The font used in the header is “Autumn in November” by Misti’s Fonts.

Video Music:
“Our Big Adventure,” “Storybook,” “Upbeat Party,” and “Ukulele Whistle” by Scott Holmes

    Kaye, you are always so organized! I have tried and tried to be like you, but it just isn’t in me. I do have a paper calendar that I look at and put super important things that I CANNOT forget into my google calendar to give me reminders. 🙂 That’s how I roll. I love your calendar. It looks amazing!

      Aww, thanks. I miss you, lady!

      I’m the kind of person for whom things don’t exist if they don’t get written down. Plus, since I have to submit a blurb for my boss’s executive report each month on what I did on each of the different projects I’m working on, I have to write down what I’ve done each day at work, even if it’s just blocking off a day with a “worked on Training website” note and nothing else more specific. Because if I don’t, by the end of the month, I’ll have forgotten everything I did the previous four or five weeks!

      I have some stickers to use to record word count for the days I write but . . . let’s just say that I have almost as many now as I did at the beginning of October. 😦 I keep thinking that if I make myself write it down and track it, I might actually do it.

        I’ve missed you too! I am trying to get back into blogging, but it’s hard. I’m trying to get organized, but I am fighting against it for some reason. Maybe it’s because I am indie publishing my first book… my brain is super tired with the huge learning curve. But I miss out on my online friends when I become a hermit! lol Here’s to being more social. Are you doing NaNo this year? I’m not. I’m using November to research and plot out my next story. I’m curious if you are though. 😉
