Life Is Messy Planner Pages Review And Giveaway

This past week, I was searching for downloadable planning sheets. There is nothing wrong with what I used last year, but I always like to start fresh. I like to look at new things. It helps me think differently and be inspired.

In my search, not only did I find fabulous planning pages, but I found a blog that was new and inspiring as well! is the website of creative coach, designer, artist, cupcake addict Mayi Carles. Within all the wonders this superwoman is doing, I discovered Mayi’s “Life Is Messy Planner Pages”. These pages are custom made by Mayi to not only plan the days, but plan the future. They were designed for the creative person who wants to do great things.

Mayi was gracious enough to let me get my hands on some of her pages. This one was my favorite.

This page struck me because it wasn’t the basic wish list of what you’d like to accomplish. It breaks down your main goal into not just what you want, but why you want it. Isn’t the “why” what its all about anyway?

Also included in this planning page set:

– a weekly blog planner (.pdf)
– a weekly meal planner (.pdf)
– a monthly action planner (.pdf)
– a monthly blog planner (.pdf)
– a goal generator (.pdf)
– a resolution board + tracker (.pdf)
– a bullet proof your goals worksheet (.pdf)
– a 2011 earning goals spreadsheet (.xls)
– a 2011 investment spreadsheet (.xls)

Life Is Messy Planning pages are complete and different. Would you like a set of your own? Mayi has been so generous and is giving a set of her planning pages to one The Creative Mama reader – a $20 value. Just leave a comment and tell us why you need these pages! The winner will be chosen at random on Thursday, January 13th.

If you just can’t wait to get your hands on these pages or want to buy them for a friend, head over to or her gorgeous etsy shop and download them right now!

  • kristi

    I need these pages because I need some structure and motivation in my life right now to simplify. Also with number 4 on the way…it would be awesome to have some order in our chaotic lives. :)

  • Michelle

    I need these amazing planning pages because my whole family wants me to find some sort of balance with all the hats I wear. Of course, I’m convinced that “balance” is less attainable than a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, but they want me to be balanced, nonetheless! Thank you!!

  • Rebecca

    I love these pages because they involve a journaling of sorts, which are handwritten. In this age of smartphones, iPads, etc., I miss seeing my goals and achievements written down(with a good old-fashioned pen), checked off and to have a lasting imprint to look back on at the end of the year. I love how these are categorized, and with three children ages 3 and under, “I want” these planning pages, “I want them so badly” to get organized and “I can do it” because they are so beautifully laid out!

  • Marcy

    I need these perfect planning pages because this is MY year! The year I fianlly stick to my goals. The year I cut down on clutter and find those things I waste time looking for that I know are “somewhere”. The year I find a place for everything and keep everything in it’s place. The year I get to enjoy more me time because I’m dealing with those obstacles that take up too much time. But in order to accomplish all this, I need a new. fresh planner, for my (not so) new, but definately, accomplishable goals. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • cate

    I found Mayi’s blog a few months ago – it’s awesome, and so is she!

    I need these planners so I can write everything in one place! in the last week I’ve brainstormed my goals for the year several times, and (with the help of children) – my biggest goal for the year is getting myself organised, and planners would help!


    Love these! A Must have for the New Year to say the least! The monthly blog planner…brilliant!

    These are AWESOME. I don’t have any thing messier than anyone else to speak of but it’s pretty messy for me. One very rambunctious little girl, one full time job, launching my own business, church responsibilities, trying to be a good friend, etc etc. These would be such a huge help!
