Tumbling Down the Rabbit Hole: A Gift to my Readers

At the end of 2019, I spent hours poring over the selection of planners at my local bookstore, looking for the perfect one for my needs. I was particularly picky about the monthly and weekly layouts, paper quality, ability to lay flat, durability, etc. attributes which can only be determined by physically examing the thing. Although I quit using my 2020 planner in March, I'm hopeful that a 2021 planner will get more mileage. Since I don't want to spend lots of time in stores or rely on product descriptions on online retailers, I decided to make my own planner.

Initially, I looked for planner layouts I could download and print. is a great place to buy printables, but everything there that I liked was in full color and my laser printer can only handle black. After a while, I realized the only way to get a layout that works well for me was to create my own. Since I do a lot of book formatting (learn more about my formatting services), putting together something both attractive and functional was a breeze. 

I love Alice in Wonderland, so I created a layout inspired by the book. I printed the number of monthly and weekly spreads I wanted and then added the months and days to each page using a red marker.

My planner turned out so well, I decided to share it with you! I hope you enjoy this freebie and have a wonderful holiday!

If you do use this template, I'd love to see it! Just tag me @BethMart07 on Twitter or Instagram.
