Find Joy Friday – Digital Planning and other tools
Good afternoon! I’m glad you are here! I have something super exciting to share with you today. I am launching a few SUPER fun things in my shop this weekend. I can’t wait for you all to check them out and get started using them!
I eventually will do a “what’s in the bag” post, but for now I want to share with you that I have always been “that person” …Oh yes, you can roll your eyes, I’m that person who is always prepared for an end of the world scenario, even if I’m just running up the road for milk! I must always be prepared and make sure I have EVERYTHING I MIGHT need to get me through whatever life throws at me. Except motion…I don’t carry pain meds with me –more on that later (trust me, it’s a funny story).
Anyway, I am usually the gal who has her phone, wallet, keys, lipgloss, blush stick, planner, and then about 5 other pouches and notebooks all with various items in them or causes they represent. Then, someone introduced me to the “bullet journal” and though I REALLY wanted to love it, I struggled. My perfectionistic brain really couldn’t handle the table of contents with various items all put in the same area of my note book together. I wanted the ability to switch the order and replace pages…I felt trapped by so much freedom! I still use a bullet journal, but it’s for lists and events I’m sure of, not for those one off things.
Then, I got my new (to me) last gen iPad. I began using it more like a planner and glorified notebook than I ever thought possible. I think it had something to do with the way the pen wrote on the iPad and the fact that I Could put my palm on the device without anything happening…GAME CHANGER!
So, I have the ability to have all my notebooks in one space, my planner is connected to my notes as well as any other papers I use. My notes I take at meetings for work, church sermons, bible study lectures, and children’s doc apt and the odds and ends are ALL in one place! (And it’s thinner than my notebooks too!)
So, I got to thinking, “If I love this process of using my iPad as a notebook/planner/all the things space, maybe others would too!” So, without further ado…I give you, the Find Joy Always Digital Planner Series!
Each Section has been carefully thought out and planned for your best planning experience. I will have a walkthrough video on my youtube channel (COMING SOON). So please feel free to check that out and comment as you have questions.
Also, you may be wondering if you have to use and Apple Pencil for the iPad, and the answer is NO. There are actually LOTS of options out there. I would encourage you to take a look at a few, but I recommend this one: Zspeed Stylus. It is the most like an Apple Pencil that I have found!
Enjoy a free download of the Month Version, or upgrade to the month with weeks (Plus Version) or months with weeks, goal areas, and notebooks (Premium Version). I welcome feedback and look forward to making more planners, notebook and other digital planning supplies so be sure to check back to the shop monthly!
Thanks for stopping by! And don’t forget to Find Joy Always,
