Giveaway - Dotmine Planners To The Rescue!

I know that Pregnancy Brain was supposed to end after giving birth, right? Well, where is the warning about Mommy Brain? Between the late nights and early mornings, (I was blessed with both an early riser and night owl!), doctor's appointments, family engagements and pesky little necessities like haircuts... I am a mess! No, really. I have lists, scraps of paper, phone reminders, you name it and I have tried it. My tech savvy husband has tried, and failed, to help me out. I really love pen and paper planners.

Sadly, I haven't had a good one since college. I expect a lot out of my planners... I mean, I trust them with my life, right? Recently I heard about Dotmine Planners. Oh, boy! I had to try one for myself.

dotmine offers a wide range of planners for Moms, Dads, Students and Generation X. Choose between the Life_Time.MineFamily_Time.Mine, or Time.Mine collection. I chose a flirty design from their Mom collection called, "Ditzy Flowers". Fitting, right?

That is it in the graphic on the right. I am very pleased with the cover design. The flowers are feminine and fun, but not childish. It is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" so it fits easily into my diaper bag. Spiral bound for durability, this 17-month planner is a dream come true.

For each season there is a Master Planning Schedule, then a full month calendar, and a section for daily notes with tear off margins for those important notes and lists. The cover has pockets for loose papers and there are also calendar stickers included for marking special occasions. Since I love lists, the tear-off sheets will come in very handy for shopping or projects.

Started in 2000 by two busy ladies trying to reclaim their lives, the company's philosophy is to:
 create fashionable, functional and affordable day planners to help individuals and families organize busy lives. We start with great art … fun, elegant and sometimes funky. Then, we arrange and design the contents of our planners to serve families, students and professionals.
I personally enjoy the pen & paper approach to making and crossing off lists, so this planner is perfect for me and my family. If you are looking for a great new planner to break you out of your "Mommy Brain" fog, why not give dotmine planners a try! Buy your own on, or directly from dotmine planners site.

1 of my readers will win their choice of dotmine planner (excluding Border's exclusive designs).
