Hello, friends!  I didn't make time to post last week because I was frantically trying to finish up my planner while helping a friend and trying to get ready for a 5-day weekend. campfire by gina sekelsky studio This is our home-away-from-home on the north shore of Lake Superior.  No cabin, just twenty really peaceful acres, some wild strawberries, a little creek, and an Airstream.  Heaven! BOOK habits by gina sekelsky studio Book #1:  Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin.  I'm saving it for vacation (but then not altogether sure I want to read about self-improvement on my vacation).  I would love to know your take if you've already read it.  I loved The Happiness Project (accessible! insightful! encouraging!) but didn't groove as well with her second book, Happier at Home.  Should I read this one? BOOK giant rat by gina sekelsky studio Book #2 (since I skipped last week):  The Giant Rat of Sumatra by Sid Fleischman.  If you enjoy kid lit and you haven't discovered Sid Fleischman, you have a treat in store.  His books are silly and charming and fun to read aloud.  Our family favorite is By the Great Horn Spoon! (That exclamation point is in the title, folks.) planner by lettergirl on etsy 01 Here it is!  My new downloadable planner!  (Those exclamation points are mine.)  The large size (8-1/2" x 11") is in the shop now, with a smaller size to follow by the end of the week.  This version has two pages per week, August 2015 - July 2016, with extra pages for each month, handwritten quotes, and room for lists.  (Who doesn't love a pretty list?) Purchase by July 15th and you'll get seven bonus pages free: a bucket list, seasonal planning charts, and notepaper.  All written and illustrated by hand.  (Seriously, when I finish up the smaller version, my reward will be printing up a large set for myself. Can't wait!)

One Response to This week: 2 books + 1 planner (so far)

    I read Better Than Before first before any of her other books. I really enjoyed it and felt like it had a lot of interesting insights all about habits. I enjoyed all her personal stories that she shared. Since I liked that book a lot I then read The Happiness Project, which I really enjoyed. I did not read Happier at Home because I heard it was boring.
