          1. Jen, where did you get the calendar divider tabs for your planner?

            1. Hi Kelly!
              I found these at the Container Store and LOVE them:

              Thank you!

          2. Nice sponsors!!! Im visiting all of them to discover new things. Thanks.

            Xoxo, Tayrina

          3. Love your planners! I bought your blog planner last year and adore it - just my style. Thanks for the giveaway!

          4. Checking how many read your sponsor posts? I always enjoy checking them out. I get to see new businesses that I never would know existed without them sponsoring you.
            It is also nice to hear you say that some projects wouldn't happen without their support.

          5. My husband turns 40, so I'm planning to throw a party! Thanks for the giveaway!

          6. Hi, Jen!

            I was entering the competition but while writing my answer to your question I accidentally hit the "enter" button and therefore never finished my sentence wish is why I´m doing it here instead. For safety ;).

            My wife who is suffering from breast cancer will hopefully be successfully done with her treatments and then we´re going to sell the family business and pursue our own dreams. This is something we´ve been talking about for 5 years but haven´t really had the guts to do yet. 2014 is when it´s going to happen.

            Have a BEAUTIFUL day, Jen!


          7. Hi Jen,

            I noticed that your personal 2014 planner is not housed in the Martha Stewart Notebook as was your 2013 one. May I please ask what you are using in this photo for the 2014 planner and where to purchase one? Thank you so much :)


            1. Hi Shannon!

              I am actually still using the same Martha discbound cover as last year, just swapped out the monthly tabs. You can snag all the details here:
