Colorful Candy Planner Sheets for Your Big Happy Planner

Have you ever created something that you love so much that you squeal like a little girl every time that you look at it? That is exactly how I feel with my newest printable. Everyone knows I’m a totally Happy Planner addict and in the beginning of 2017 I switched to the big one. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of accessory pages for the Big Happy Planner. That’s why I created these colorful candy planner sheets to accompany the regular planner pages. Getting them from the printer was like a birthday and Christmas present all in one!

Colorful Candy Planner Sheets

First, let’s answer the big question you have. What additional sheets are a part of this? I created the most important sheets for your daily life to help keep you on track. That includes:

  • 12 Monthly Budget Pages
  • 12 Monthly Financial Planners
  • 2 Debt Payoff Tracker
  • 2 Important Dates
  • Yearly To-Do List
  • Yearly Goals
  • Password Keeper
  • Monthly Habit Tracker
  • 4 Blog Post Ideas

Note: You’ll Need The Happy Planner Big Punch to Add These to Your Planner.

Monthly Budget Sheets

There are 6 sections to the monthly budget sheets and they are different than any other budgeting printables you will find. The budget itself is only broken down into 2 sections. I have tried traditional budgets that are broken down into a ton of different categories. You know what? I never stick with them. You can learn more about my budget format in-depth later this month. Until then, here is how to use the different sections of this monthly budget sheet.

  • Monthly Staples
    • These are the expenses that are necessary and unchanging each month (for the most part).
    • Examples of these are your mortgage, insurance, and food.
  • Debt/Optional
    • These are the monthly expenses that you have chosen but that aren’t absolutely necessary for living and working.
    • Examples of these expenses include any outstanding debts (credit cards, loans, etcetera), subscription services, and paid television.
  • Savings
    • This section is for keeping track of your emergency savings.
    • This is not for your envelope breakdown, vacation fund, or Christmas savings.
  • Register
    • If you are not keeping a register of your account transactions, you need to start today. You cannot rely on your internet account balance.
  • Don’t Forget
    • This section will help you remember uncommon monthly expenses that only occur during certain times of the year.
    • You will also find blank lines to write in personal expenses such as anniversary plans, graduations, and more.
  • Monthly Finance Goal
    • It is always smart to readily set and view your financial goals often. This keeps it front and center each month to keep you on track.

Monthly Financial Planner

This section helps you plan your monthly finances. Start by budgeting each paycheck and then keep track of any events or expenses coming up that month.

  • Paycheck Planning
    • Write each pay date and amount at the top of this section.
    • Use the following lines to plan what expenses will be paid with each check.
  • Event Planning
    • Use this section to plan for any parties, trips, anniversary dates, and more that are happening this month.
    • Only one is included because you do not want to over-extend your budget to try to include everything you want (but don’t actually need).
  • Notes
    • The last section on the Financial Planner page is to note any anomalies for the month. This includes extra paychecks or bonuses you are expecting and unexpected expenses.

 

Are you a Happy Planner addict? Organize your life and dominate your finances with these colorful candy planner sheets for your Big Happy Planner.

Debt Payoff Tracker

Paying off debt is definitely a priority. Keep track of where you are at in the process with these pages. List each debt and its beginning balance. Then use the remaining lines to track payments and updated balances.

Additional Planner Sheets

The remaining planner sheets do not need explanation (except for possible the Yearly To-Do List which will get explained in its own post). The rest of them are all basic additions to keep you organized throughout the year. In these sheets you’ll find:

  • Important Dates
  • Yearly To-Do List (Again, I will explain this further in its own post.)
  • Yearly Goals
  • Password Keeper
  • Monthly Habit Tracker

Kids and adults will have a blast shaking these babies all night. If you plan on making many of these favors, I recommend purchasing a set of chipboard arrows to make your life easier. Arrows allow you to skip step 5. Multiple arrow sizes also allow you to skip the trimming in step 9. Simply pair a longer arrow with a shorter arrow for each noise maker and you are good to go. Come back next week for even more DIY New Years ideas!

Glittery Winter Woodland Tree

This tree has a beautiful mix of felt ornaments, natural elements, and glitter accents. The “topper” is actually an oversized twig star with Santa on it. Instead of hanging pinecones, we bought a bag of the cinnamon scented ones. Those are tucked into the branches for a natural element that smells incredible. It all adds up to a gorgeous tree that both grandma and the grandkids love.

 

This mix of sparkle and rustic on this glittery winter woodland tree add a glamorous yet comforting aesthetic for the holidays.

What is the last rule of decorating the tree at grandmas? You have to wear a Santa hat while you’re decorating. That’s how the tree gets its Christmas magic.

 

This mix of sparkle and rustic on this glittery winter woodland tree add a glamorous yet comforting aesthetic for the holidays.

Why I Love Christmas

You might wonder why I would willingly decorate multiple trees during such a busy time of year. It is because I truly love and believe in the spirit of Christmas. Every year I see people transform into more patient and thoughtful citizens. I see children that still believe in magic light up at every Santa they see. Yes, you will still have some who are mean and hateful but they are far outweighed by kindness and joy. Christmas isn’t about the gifts or chaos of gatherings. It is about spreading joy and keeping magic alive. Decorating my mom’s tree brings her great joy and that is worth making time for.

 

This mix of sparkle and rustic on this glittery winter woodland tree add a glamorous yet comforting aesthetic for the holidays.

Thank you so much for following along with our 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. It has been wonderful sharing all of this Christmas fun with you. This glittery winter woodland tree is a perfect way to end the hop. You can keep the fun going a little longer by visiting my blogging friends in the hop to see their trees. There are so many beautiful ideas, you will be inspired to decorate multiple trees too!

5 Easy DIY Projects for Your Holiday Porch

Welcome to Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop. I can’t believe it is almost over. Today we are sharing our holiday porches and I have a confession. My porch is absolutely terrible. I don’t even have a Christmas doormat. I use a Halloween one pretty much all year. In fact, it is so bad that it is going to be my big spring project in 2018. Don’t worry. I’ll totally be sharing the makeover with you. It does mean, however, that I don’t have a holiday porch to share with you. Instead of leaving you hanging, I’ve rounded up 5 DIY projects for your holiday porch. They are all easy and beautiful. You will have your porch holiday ready in time for Christmas.

Start with a Tablecloth

The absolute easiest way to create a family-friendly holiday table is a festive tablecloth. If you’re worried about spills you can go with a felt lined plastic one. Personally, I’m a fan of cloth ones at Christmas. They might get a few spills but stain-fighters are fantastic in this day and age. They can handle it.

Simple Centerpiece

To create a family-friendly holiday table, keep it simple. A small centerpiece is perfect to add some holiday décor without overwhelming little ones. You also don’t want to use your expensive décor because accidents happen. I used this DIY Gold Foiled Luminary and some glass elements I picked up at the Dollar Tree.

Bonus Tips:

  • My kids tend to pull on table runners so I used a fake snow wrap that I found at Hollar for a dollar! It doesn’t hang off of the edges of our table but still created that runner effect.
  • You can also add fresh fruit for an extra burst of color on your table. Make them a part of your centerpiece!

Use Faux Flowers

Busy moms don’t have time to keep changing out fresh floral arrangements all month long. The petals can also cause additional mess for you to clean off of the table each day. Faux flowers make your life easier.

Bonus Tip:

  • Hide those faux stems in the vase by filling it with additional leaves around the stem.

Skip the Place Settings

Instead of using fancy place settings, opt for extra festive placemats. They add the festive touch to your table without fear of tiny hands breaking them. Your kids will also love them a lot more than fine china and place cards.

You’ll notice that there is no ribbon hanger on this wreath. When I tested it, the hanger made it look cluttered. Instead, add an outdoor Command Hook to your door and hang your glittery Merry Christmas floral wreath on the hook. I absolutely love how this wreath turned out. We’ve already gotten a ton of compliments on it which is always nice as a creator. Now, it is time to check out all of the amazing wreaths and door décor ideas that my friends created.

Run water through your coffee maker without grounds for hot water. The warming feature will help keep it that way and re-fills are a breeze. If you prefer milk to water, use a Crock-Pot to warm the milk and keep it that way.

Keep Décor Simple

Don’t feel the need for elaborate décor on your hot cocoa bar. Use festive wrapping paper as a tablecloth, add a wreath to your organizer (or wall) as I did, and let your cocoa bar do the rest. It doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles to be beautiful.

I love this game so much that as a teenager I played an on-the-go version with my, now, husband as we walked around the neighborhood. One of us would start by naming a rock band. The next person would have to name a band that started with the last letter of the previous band. Yes, I have always been this much of a nerd. That’s why I can’t believe it has taken me this many years to create a Christmas version of the game.

How to Use Your Printable

To play, print out enough copies of the game for the number of players. Then cut out the lists and use them with your existing game. (If you don’t own Scattergories yet, you can grab it here.) I’ve also included a 6th blank list that you can fill in with your own categories. Feel free to make them as meaningful or silly as you want to suit your family gatherings. It doesn’t get much easier to enjoy a festive board game night than this. Having only 6 lists will also appease the players who aren’t as into the game as you are. It is played much faster than the traditional game.
