The Daybook Story

As a long-time lover of planning, papier, and pens, I struggled to find the perfect planner to help organize my life and projects. For years I worked with stodgy black-and-white calendars stuffed with pink Post-its and ephemera dreaming of something more feminine and creative.

Seeking to blend function and style, I released the first colorful Daybook in 2012 and continue to enhance it with a new edition each fall. The weekly layout has space for your intention, projects, to-dos, appointments, Most Important Tasks (MITs), gratitude, wellness planning, plus daily and weekly Tranquility Tool checklists.

The Daybook is chock-full of tips and checklists for living productively and tranquilly—plant-based recipes, reading lists, a budget, packing lists, yoga and mindfulness mp3s, blank inspiration pages to invite your inner artist to play. Daybook supporters also have access to a private Facebook group and a private webpage with additional downloadable resources.

Start anytime and this dateless Daybook will guide you through a calendar year with daily doses of tranquility. Reflect weekly as you pen your week’s MITs, monthly while crafting your intention and dreams, and seasonally through the Wheel of Life.

My vision for the pink planner is to serve as a catch-all for your dreams, day’s events, and deepest thoughts—a chance to pause and find pockets of tranquility within life’s busyness. May this Daybook evoke joy when you pen plans, satisfaction when you check the boxes, and inspiration to get creative with ephemera, colored markers, and washi tape.

    Daybook Love

    My 1st one came 2 days ago! New fan girl here. Love the self care, creativity, and focus prompts, especially with the extras available! Appreciate the healthy productivity and environmentally conscious lifestyle research behind this holistic-minded product. Planning, dreams with goals and warm-fuzzy rewards, done in a wellness art journal—fun and cathartic!—Dawn

    My Daybook came today and it is beautiful. This is my first. In looking over it tonight, I think if I follow it, this can be life changing for me. I live alone and usually eat dinner on the couch watching TV. My first plan is to clean off the kitchen table and put some candles on it. I see a spiritual and physical healing over the next year.—Julie

    Deborah

    I have tried many types of planners over the years but yours are the only ones that have worked for me and that I truly enjoy using. I love the layout of the Tranquility du Jour Daybook and use every single section. The quality, the colors, and the tranquility tools and tips come together to create an absolutely beautiful planner.—Deborah

    I LOVE tucking a formerly used Daybook into my satchel and heading to coffee shop to reminisce and be inspired once again by the collages made, the quotes glued in, the photos printed and cherished and the desires attained. A visual anthology of the impermanence of life and the magic along the way. THANK YOU. —Marilyn

    The Daybook is just one of the many tools you have shared with me. I owe you much thanks. Because of your instruction to plan daily, weekly, monthly and yearly this year took a different shape than the past years have. My husband and I went to Paris (what?) I’ve lost 30 lbs (what?), I always have fresh flowers in the house, I returned to yoga, I took a meditation class, I have more deliberate dates with my daughters, I write more notes, and the list goes on and on and on.—Kristin

    Your Daybook is sensational–I can barely wait for 2016 so I can use it. The cover is amazing and it is such a quality creative masterpiece! I know my friend will love it too! — Gail

    I walked my two dogs to the mailbox today (.25 miles from our house) and I could not get home fast enough once I saw that your Daybook had arrived. I made a cup of tea and then came right to my art room and have been moving into the Daybook ever since. Dinner may not get made… Sorry dear fam, but my soul, stamps and markers are surely being fed right now.—Kristin

    What is this magic of a planner?! I’m in love with it. Another triumph, Kimberly. I’m officially a convert.—Missy

    I surprised the postman when I swung the front door open and broke out in a HUGE smile when I saw the package!! Kimberly Wilson, it is really beautiful! —Sam

    Kimberly, I LOVE the new daybook!!!  It’s so much fun!  I waited for everyone to go to bed so I could open it without distraction…what a long wait!  It’s beautiful, I can’t wait for Nov 30 & my supplies to start playing!!!  Merci merci merci!!!! —Shannon

    YAY!!!! I have tried many types of planners over the years but yours are the only ones that worked for me and that I enjoyed using. Looking forward to pre-ordering one for 2017. The cover is gorgeous!—Jen

    So that you, my dear, can begin at any time.

    A beautifully designed accessory to capture your week’s most important tasks and your life’s most important dreams. It’s a pink and gold planner, lifestyle organizer, and wellness guide all in one. Inside you’ll find inspiration to live tranquilly and intentionally. Use while sipping tea, juggling life’s demands, and dreaming big.

    6. How do I know if my order went through?

    You will receive a confirmation email from PayPal directly to the email address associated with your PayPal account within seconds of placing your order. Voilà!

    7. What’s next after placing my order?

    Daybook elves (me and Tim) pack and ship within 24-48 business hours of receiving your order. Look for your Daybook within one week of placing your order. Delivery time depends on where you live and what holidays or weekends have fallen since your order placement.

    8. What does my Daybook purchase support?

    A petite female-owned business, a veteran-owned firm who prints in America, an entire barnyard of rescue animals at Farm Sanctuary, and the planting of 300 trees . Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    9. How do i label my Daybook’s dates?

    The latest Daybook follows inspiration from the 52 Weeks of Tranquility Journal and has 57 weekly layouts (one year plus five bonus weeks). Some months have four weeks after the monthly layout while others have five. I label mine without skipping days. For example, if a month ends mid-week, I start the next month the following day without going to a new weekly layout. This means that a few days from one month may still be behind the former month’s layout. It allows me to see a full week no matter what months it may straddle. If I find that I’m getting too much of one month in the former month, I’ll skip an entire week of dating a spread (since there are five extra weeks).
     
    I typically start a Daybook the week before the new year begins (ex. last week in Dec 2016) and go through the first few weeks of the following year (ex. early January 2018). While the 52 Weeks of Tranquility inspiration aligns with weeks 1-52 (plus the five bonus weeks) of your year, it does not mean you have to start with January 1 as the tips are timeless. You can start at any time! 
     
    If I make mistakes stamping my yearly layout (ugh—those darn leap years!), I add washi tape over my mishap and write the date with a Sharpie. The beauty of creative tools! There’s no right or wrong way to label or use your Daybook. Know you have 13+ months to play with, so let your Daybook reflect your preferences, needs, and creative flair.
     

    10. How do I share my pages with others or get inspiration for designing my own?

    Snap photos and share on our private Facebook group (noted on p. 7 of the latest version). This private group is a perfect spot to share resources, gain ideas, and help spread the inspiration! The Daybook E-course also gives lots of tips on ways to use your Daybook beyond the obvious and includes the latest online Playshop (over one hour) and 20-page Guidebook that accompanied the event.
