I have a habit of writing birthdays, anniversaries, events, workshops and children's schedules in my planner...I like those simple ones which you can glance through a whole month in 2 pages and with lots of empty pages at the back for me to write what's not and etc.. I happened to really like those simple ones that you can find in your local bookstore, but they looked really plain and somewhat ugly to me. Plain and boring PVC cover just isn't the style that I liked..
So it started last year where my husband passed me one that was a gift from his company..so you guessed right...it was black and boring, so I hand stitched a cover for myself from felt material. This year I decided to create a tradition for myself, I will "sew" a new planner for myself every year.
The fabric was bought when we were still staying in Taiwan. I've sewn the "Play" ribbon tag and the "Create" charm, so that I can remind myself that its just not only duties and responsibilities that I'll need to jot down in my planner, its a reminder that I need to "create" and "enjoy" myself too.
So have you ever create/start a tradition for yourself?
Happy New Year!
