print: a blog planner

planner3
I love working with others on projects. Especially when there is an expanse of land between you, and you still get to work together. Over the past year or so, Tara of Sew Tara and I have become blog friends, and I was so happy when she recently asked me about something that she was planning.

You see, Tara has been wanting a planner that has special things built in for blogging purposes, and she had ideas. What started as a simple technical question, eventually became more of a collaboration. Well, she did all the hard work, and I got to make the pages look all fancy. She added a cover that is based on a blog design idea, and voila! A planner that is just right for a blogger.

You probably don't want a cover that says Sew Tara, but we thought you might like to print out the inside pages and use them for yourself! There is one page with one week on it. If you print it double-sided and cut it in half, you can make a planner like Tara's. She then took hers to a copy shop to have it bound. So sweet!

Download the calendar page PDF in color or in black & white, and then go tell Tara how well she planned her planner!

UPDATE: You can find contact pages to match the planner right here.

  30. Now, this is just what bloggers need. You won't see a planner for blogger's anywhere, so we just have to depend on making one ourselves. =)
