It is Tuesday and I think it is safe to say that I'm right in the midst of "big meet blues" . This weekend was just amazing!

What is The Big Meet?
For non Planner people, it is simply a day of Planner love. We talk about planners, craft, shop and more importantly we strengthen our friendships.

What is a Planner?
People call them diaries , organisers. There are different kinds and there are different people all over the world that love them.
