As a creative person you might recognize yourself in the ‘necessary evil’ what called ‘plan ahead’ and ‘organize’. Now I know -in the meantime- that I am much more productive and there is more peace in my head, when I write down certain things and put them in order. But, of course, when I organize and planning my stuff, I do this with bright and color
-This is what this article is about ‘colorful and creative planning’.


Colorful and creative plans

For many years I love to clean up my calendars. At the moment the ‘bullet journal’ is popular.
Also a very nice way to plan, but as far as I am concerned, there is a bit too much time in that.
However, with the computer you can also go many ways and also create many nice things and place them in an agenda. So you can search through Pinterest for the word ‘filofax’ and there you can find lots of great ideas to expand an agenda and brighten up with color and clippings. This is the link to a board on my pinterest account where you can get some ideas for ‘Filofax’.

Hook overview

Now I am never busy with one project and unfortunately not always have carefully stored all the details necessary to continue the hook project after a few weeks. You can read the adverse effect of this in this article:
Pattern crocheted blanket ‘Louisa’
Now I have created a ‘project planner’ and I can write down some details and hopefully the important things like; the size of my crochet hook, which wool bath number the wool has had etc.
You can also download and print this way – if you like this and find it useful- You can adjust your printer settings yourself in order to print the document in your own way and with the correct dimensions.

Are you a planner? Or do you easily have an overview and therefore less need for an ‘organizer’ or other ways to keep your life in order? And maybe you have tips for me and / or other readers? Let me know in the comments!




  1. Ontzettend leuk! Ben altijd wel op zoek naar planner inspiratie. Ik schrijf alles altijd in een notitieboekje, zal binnenkort wel een foto delen op IG 🙂 Ik ga jouw planner ook zeker uitproberen! Liefs,

  2. Hoi hoi,

    Zo’n planner is inderdaad heel erg makkelijk!! 🙂 ziet er netjes en duidelijk uit!! Ik gebruik een ringband notitieboek waarbij ik al mijn projecten bij houd. (Lang niet zo overzichtelijk als dit maar werkt wel :p) Met naam, garen maar ook met ruimte om het patroon te tekenen of te noteren waar het vandaan komt.

    • Klinkt super netjes Lisanne! Volgens mij niet minder overzichtelijk dan dat van mij 🙂
      Heerlijk als je het gewoon kunt opzoeken i.p.v. te gokken welke naald enz. je ook alweer had gebruikt 🙂
