Fresh Start DIY Dry Erase Planner

Life can get so very busy and staying organized and focused can be quite difficult for a creative person! Even though I have multiple planners, both on paper and digital, I still seem to get off track during the day.  This Fresh Start DIY dry erase planner idea came to me simply because I wanted something that stood out right in front of me all day as a reminder. A picture frame serves as the perfect choice, because not only is the glass front easy to use with dry erase markers, but the back comes with a handy stand for propping it up in front of me on my desk!  I love everything about this…DIY Planner Pin

And there you have it!  One of the most fun, creative ways to make your every day a better one!  Now all of my main focus points and appointments are all at a glance without having to turn on a computer or open a paper planner.  I still of course, use both of these, but it’s helpful to keep the few must get done items right in view throughout the day to keep me from ‘chasing squirrels’ so to speak.diy-planner-angle
