Have you always dreamed of a creative, stress-free, organised life with time for friends and family, but feel like you're stuck in a rut?

Heart Handmade UK Logo

It's easy to feel that way. Life nowadays pulls us in a million different directions and social media leads us to believe that we need to keep up with unattainable standards. 

What's important to you?

I'll give you a hint; it's You, your friends and family, and the parts of daily life that can be an absolute joy at times. 

The 'Happy Creative Life Planner' has been designed with YOU in mind. 

Imagine how good it will feel when you realise that you're happy and not struggling to stay on top of the demands of daily life.

Utilising a daily planner can help you do just that. Not only a daily planner but a planner that focuses on YOU. With a full section dedicated to self-care and 50 ways, you can practice Self-care on a regular basis. 

The practice of Self-care and keeping a gratitude list can contribute to your overall psychological wellbeing. 

Using the planner and Self-Care checklist on a regular basis will help you improve your time management, allowing for more time to be spent with family. You'll experience better control over your emotions, your life in general and you will be much more likely to complete all daily tasks with vigour and reach your goals.

Keeping a planner will help you improve your time management. 

Once you’ve improved your ability to manage your time and tasks you’ll experience:

  • Better control over your life, 
  • You’ll be more productive and 
  • You’ll be much more likely to reach your goals. 
  • You’ll remember so much more and
  • Have a record that you can refer back to in the future. 


Writing goals down increases the odds of achieving them by about 50%

“The discipline of writing something down is the first step towards making it happen” Lee Lococca

Writing your goals down and figuring out an action plan 

  • Decreases procrastination, 
  • IIncreases motivation and 
  • Helps you to iron out the details necessary to reach them!


If you’re trying to maintain or lose weight, tracking your food and water intake can keep you focused on your diet, provides motivation and helps you achieve your weight goals.


The practice of self-care: 

  • Improves our immunity against diseases and infections, 
  • Our immunity, 
  • Increases positive thinking, 
  • Makes us less likely to suffer from depression, stress or other mental health issues. 

While it may seem indulgent, it categorically is not.

It conveys that we value ourselves and contributes to long-term psychological well-being. 

"Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort. " – Deborah Day


The 52 week savings challenge aims to help you save an extra ($/£)1,378 a year!

You can save increasing amounts of money or decreasing amounts of money each week throughout 2017.

The budget printable will help you:

  • Keep track of your money
  • Makes it less likely that you will overspend on unnecessary items.
  • It can increase motivation to cut back on spending and save even more money!.

The Online shopping tracker:

helps you keep track of any purchases made online that could have been delayed or in some cases, not even shipped


Organising your projects and determining priority.

  • Increases the likelihood that you will actually follow through on said project
  • Help you determine whether its worthwhile.
  • Will help you avoid overspending on supplies you don’t need.

Using the online course tracker will help you keep a record of any online classes you have purchased, with the necessary details required to access them. 

It reminds you of any information you may have forgotten and ensures you don’t purchase a duplicate course in the future.


Shopping List:

  • Creating a shopping list 
  • deters mindless spending and 
  • helps to ensure that you buy items you actually want and need.
  • It helps you save time. 
  • It gives you the opportunity to eliminate any crappy foods that you don’t need.
  • Best of all it makes a trip to the supermarket less stressful.


Writing a wishlist is great for saving items you would ordinarily buy as soon as you saw them. It decreases mindless spending. 

I suggest saving an item on your wishlist for at least and review after 30 days to see if you really want or need the item. 

On the next gift giving holiday when someone asks you what you want, you can refer to your handy list!

Shows to watch:

If you don’t use Netflix, having a written planner of shows you actually want to watch it’s great to refer too. It can stop bingeing on mindless television for no good reason when you could be doing something more productive. 

Movies to watch:

Ensures you don’t forget the movies you want to watch when they come out on DVD or become available to watch on Netflix or other streaming services. 

It is also very handy to refer back to if anyone asks for movie recommendations.


If you hear a song on the radio that you adore but don’t have access to Spotify, keeping a list on paper can help to remind you of those songs you’re desperate to have on your favourites playlist.

Places to Visit:

Keeping a list of places to visit can really help you to figure out where your next trip or vacation should be. 

Where you should visit with friends on your day off work.Fun weekend trips you can take with your family without having to do lots of research before hand because they’re already on your list.

Packing List:

The beauty of keeping a packing list in your planner all year around is that you can keep it as a master packing list, with the first few items being the essentials that you will always bring with you but inevitably forget sometimes. 

It can also help you eliminate items you don’t need and save on packing space.

Memory Log:

The Memory Log is designed to help you remember funny little stories and moments from the year. If you like to scrapbook or create photo books each Christmas then this little log is invaluable! 

Photos to take:

A perfect list for scrapbookers or photo book enthusiasts. It can help you capture the magical moments when there aren’t any special events happening. 

Websites to check out:

This is another great way to keep track of your entertainment and comes in especially handy if you read non fiction books with a lot of resources that you want to check out after you’ve finished your reading session, or even the book in it’s entirety.


This is the one type of list that a lot of people write on a regular basis but fail to file it properly, then it inevitably gets lost. That was my problem anyway. Now I store my reminders in my planner and make a habit of checking them on a regular basis. 

People To Call/E-Mail:

An essential list that reminds you to keep in touch with friends and family. If you remember to check your list with regularity then the chances that you will follow through are considerably higher! 

I constantly need reminders to call people. It’s easy to get bogged down with tasks and when it’s time to switch off, you tend to do just that. Don’t forget to call your mum! 

Bucket LIst

Keeping a bucket list reminds you of the ‘why’s’ in life. Our goals tend to be very focused on how you are to achieve them but the bucket lists acts as the ultimate reward system. 

Periodically reviewing your bucket list can work as a great motivator to reach your goals when you’re reminded of the incentives. 

Periodically reviewing your bucket list can work as a great motivator to reach your goals when you’re reminded of the incentives. 

“You get in life what you have the Courage to ask for” - Queen Oprah of Winfrey

Memorable Quotes:

There are sometimes in life, you read a rather hilarious quote or even an insanely motivating quote and you want to save it somewhere that you will remember to view it. Inside your planner is the PERFECT place!

Using quotes as motivators, for sharing on social media (on #motivationalmonday) or to use in the future for lettering projects. 

Gratitude List:

Keeping a gratitude list can 

  • Improve your health, 
  • Your attitude, general outlook, 
  • The relationships you have, 
  • Your emotions, 
  • Your personality and it can even help you in your career!

Practising gratitude makes us nicer people. 

We tend to become more trusting, more appreciative of everything in your life and even more social. 

It helps with your decision making capabilities and can increase your productivity. 

As a result of ALL of this, it can help you achieve your career goals or the goals you have set for life in general!

Aim for writing 3 things that you are grateful for each day. 

Reviewing this list tends to give me warm fuzzy feelings and I can attest to the improvement of my overall general well-being since doing this practice.

Celebrate the Win’s in life! (Your accomplishments) 

Tracking your achievements in life can increase positive emotions, such as your happiness and confidence. 

Cultivating these emotions on a regular basis attributes to your psychological well-being and can even help you live longer. 

"Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning." ~Benjamin Franklin 

Find ways to create memories around your most important successes, track them in your memory log and on stressful or bad days, review them and remember you are capable!

The Planner I have already comes with it's own inserts, why should I buy this planner?

That's a great question! Standard planner inserts are just that. They're standard because manufacturers have to include inserts that will appeal to as many people as possible.

The Happy Creative Life Planner has been created with you in mind. I've been using planners for almost a decade now, and year after year I've customised my planner inserts so that I can live the best, most organised creative life possible. It is so much easier to do when all the organising is done in one place.  

These inserts are focused on you and how you need to take of you so that you can live the most organised, creative life possible. 

This planner is for the creative woman with a full schedule who needs to prioritize herself

Are you settling for a 'blah' life, or feel as though you could do with a few more hours in the day to get all of your tasks done and still have some life? 

Do you dream of a day when all of your tasks are completed with a smile, you had quality time with your family, and you can sink into the tub with a glass of wine or your favourite cup of tea? 

When you use this planner and the e-mail series together and commit to taking care of yourself, it will seem as though everything else will fall into place. You will feel invigorated to complete your tasks and do something every day to achieve your big goals in life. However, you have to do the work!

Who am I?

Heart Handmade UK

My work has been included in publications such as; Mollie Makes, Reloved, BBC Good Homes, DoCrafts Creativity, Sew Magazine and many more which you can view here

I am a woman who is a little weird, anxious at times but determined not to let my mental health hold me back and determined to help you with the very same.
