Happy summer to all my homeschooling mom friends! I hope you enjoy the free undated homeschool planner pages I am offering (link at the bottom of this post)!
I’ve been busy (as I’m certain all of you have been, too). Among the blessings of this summer so far has been the welcoming of a new grandbaby (yay) and a whole house declutter. Also, there was a tiny hacking incident, but that seems to be taken care of (thanks be to God!).
Meanwhile…I’ve been working on two projects for you all precious mamas:
- Homeschool Mom Planner Pages (free downloads in this post)
- Splendid Spelling (almost finished)
Since I’ve been time-crunched of late, I wasn’t able to get the pages to the printer, but I am offering them undated here for your convenience.
One thing I was able to do was to go crazy on the art part. Admittedly, I was inspired by the art in a big-sized Happy Planner I was sent for a review.
I’ve never owned a Happy Planner, and I was glad to receive it (especially since planners are one of my weaknesses). However, I don’t think I would ever be willing to spend the kind of money it cost ($42 at the time it was sent).
It had a sturdy cover, the paper was quality. The layout is delicately lined and uncluttered. However, the pages were pretty “vanilla.” There weren’t any interesting layouts, hardly even a page for notes. I was rather disappointed, especially with all the hype and prestige of owning one.
So, I thought it would be nice to mimic some of the best features of this Happy Planner as an homage to the designer, but with a Christian twist. I used Canva to create some cover and divider art, including some scripture references (I get tired of the planner world being dominated by the cult of self). A few of the art pages are totally original as well.
I also made sure to include the spreads we as the Mom Delights community decided were important, such as the chore and clothing charts, etc. I also made sure there was a dashboard spread, complete with the type of homeschool activity recorder found in my Record Book series.
