I've been a planner addict for a few months. I think it all started when some planner peoples' images started popping up on the suggested Instagram feed. Here is a photo of my first planner (an A5 binder bought at Target).
It actually worked really well but I always wanted a real planner (leather, 6 rings etc).
I found Happie Scrappie on Instagram and ordered one of her super cute faux dori. Here is a link to her online shop. In addition to her faux dori she also has a lot of adorable goodies to pretty up your notebooks. I use my faux dori for notes, ideas, sketching and quick planning.
My second planner was my Kikki K. I love it! It was a bit pricey but sometimes you can catch sales which is awesome! I use my Kikki K for pretty much everything family related.
I also have a great Mead planner that I received as a gift that I keep track of all my work related tasks. I found I couldn't fit all of my work related tasks in my small "WORK" section in my Kikki K planner.
Finally my own hand made faux dori.
Sorry, I'm really happy with this. It's my first attempt at making my own and the first time I've touched a sewing machine in a couple years. I used iron on fusible to stick together two pieces of felt, then I placed the holes and sewed around the border. My only complaint is that I didn't really measure very well so it's just a hair too small to fit a half letter-sized notebook. Oh, well, I'll just look at my Arashi charm and smile. :)
I also made some notebooks out of quality printer paper and pages from my Strathmore sketchbook.
