Guess that’s nothing new. A writer who loves stationery. Big whoop. That’s like announcing cops like donuts or judges like early tee times.
It’s not exactly breaking news.
But that doesn’t make it any less true. I love post-its and note cards. Legal pads and note pads. Spiral notebooks and journals. If it has paper and it’s bound, I’m all over it.
Recently, with the release and promotion of my debut novel, The Tycoon’s Socialite Bride, and trying to keep up with my family, I realized I needed better help with organization. My digital organizers weren’t cutting it; I needed my old friends pen and paper. I went on Amazon and looked at the daily planners, but they were all so… plain. I was reading reviews on one
planner and I saw “DIY.”
Was it possible?
I could make my own daily planner?!
Heart pounding, I typed “DIY daily planner” into Google and smiled in bliss at the list of blogs and articles that appeared on my screen. I do not exaggerate when I say I spent hours looking at the articles, reading reviews, weighing the pros and cons until I found exactly what I was looking for on the I Heart Organizing blog. It was perfect. It was colorful, inclusive, organized… and expensive. Between the binder and accessories and the custom print out pages, it was going to cost more than a regular daily planner. But
like I am with my purses (Have I mentioned my purse addiction? No. Okay, good.) when the right one calls to me, price isn’t an object.
A big hug and thank you to Eve, for hosting me today.

entree into their exclusive world. When D.C. socialite Pamela Harrington comes to him for help, Marcus realizes the golden admission ticket he’s been seeking has suddenly fallen into his lap.
Pamela will do anything to save her favorite
cause, even agree to a marriage of convenience. The altruistic “it-girl” isn’t worried about the pretend passion with Marcus turning real; she’s sworn off powerful, driven men who use her for her family’s connections.
So she’ll deny the way her pulse races with one look from his crystalline blue eyes. And he’ll ignore the way his body throbs with each kiss from her full lips. Because there’s no way he’ll lose his blue-collar heart to the blue-blooded beauty.
