I have not had a planner like the one I got this year previously. I bought this planner with Christmas money I received and I am very happy that I made this investment. I had started my "Opening Act" pages, but had not finished. Actually, they still are not finished. I am a very sentimental person, so the things in my "opening" are things that have memories and keepsakes. These pages I will transfer to each new planner - they will always be close to me, so what is on these pages is important. That is why I say, I have more to add. I always carry my planner when I shop for home and crafts. I used to always carry my fabrics and paint chips, this is no exception. The paint chips are tucked in the front flap. I have Audrie's envelope to me, and a piece of Jennifer's lace, some RAK keepers, and my beloved doggies. I have some of my little playing around art pieces and the crystal chain is from a friend in Vancouver, as is the green pen. So, at least I have it started ... thanks for the push Audrie.

Oh, Kia, you are one of the most wonderful people, and it doesn't surprise me in the least that you are very sentimental. It shows in so many ways, sweet friend! I just love your new journal and love that your transfer special (and cherished) items from year to year. I agree - thanks for sharing a personal side of yourself. You are a sweetheart! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
