Despite all of today's high tech gadgets and ways to track and sync our busy schedules, college coeds still often prefer the old fashion day planner. Case in point: my daughter Isabelle who is always right on top of what is in and what is not spent hours on her one day home this summer searching for and then custom designing this year's day planner. She already knew many of the girls in her classes at USC would be sporting an Erin Condren planner this semester so she wanted hers to stand out from the rest.
This is a bit embarrassing to admit but it took us multiple hours to perfect her design. Izzy wanted her planner to coordinate with her new chevron bedding without being too matchy matchy. (It probably would have taken only 15 minutes from start to finish if she would have just been willing to order Erin Condren's fabulous zig zag planner, but no such luck.) Plus she wanted different, but coordinating designs on the front and on the back of the planner. A tad complicated but oh so cute!
