Hi, I’m Kristen. I am so happy you are here!
I created A Wishful Plan back in January 2017 after I decided to jump into the world of decorative planning. I have always been an agenda loving, organized person since grade school. Yes, back to school season was my second Christmas, and I couldn’t wait to pick out all my new stationary and pens for the upcoming school year. I have always used calendars, even those little plastic covered monthly pocket calendars, so it was no surprise when I found the planner community how quickly I dove right in.
I am a full-time tiny home dweller, living with my little family traversing the United States. We sold our house and downsized into our renovated RV to live and travel on the road. There is a lot of planning that goes on when you travel and live on the road full-time! Having a place to keep track of everything we need, all while staying productive and organized with our remote software jobs and homeschooling our two kids, is vital. Planning is more than a decorative intention. In fact, it is what we rely on day to day to keep us moving, learning, and working. Just like you, we have a lot on our plates. Taking the time to organize and prioritize is a huge factor in being successful while chasing our dreams.
In this journey, I have learned that there are two sides to the art of planning: intention and action. We all have our intentions, and oftentimes, we mean well by what we intend to accomplish for ourselves, our families, or even our businesses. However, when those intentions are drafted on long to do lists or project plans that sit in a notebook (or even a planner!), they often get pushed from one day to the next until we decide that they are important enough to finally seize action. Why not take action from the get go, so that you can accomplish everything you have to get done in addition to the things you want to get done? There is time for it all, and we will talk all about planning for that here!
For now, come join the creative journey with me and my many other crafty, planner-addicted friends in this amazing planner community! There’s a place just for you!
