Planning on Paper

Planning on Paper Workshops, January 18, 2018, 6:30pm - 9:00pm, Toronto's First Post Office (260 Adelaide St. East), $20, pre-registration required.

We live in a digital world, but people are rediscovering that the best way to wrangle tasks, goals, time commitments, and productivity is still planning on paper! Notebook planners are easy to individualize and change as you go, and are a great way to focus your attention on what’s important to you, and get the job done. Planning on paper can keep you committed, and on track for life goals both big and small.

On your own, the initial setup of a planner system may seem intimidating, but being productive can actually be fun and creative! In this workshop we’ll explore the most popular systems that will work for your life, your career, and your dreams. We’ll also share ways to incentivize and motivate yourself through your planner, so you can live your best life. There will be lots of time and inspiration for experimenting with layouts and having fun with design.

We will supply everything you need, except for your actual journal.

Any notebook will work with the Bullet Journal system. Choose a new notebook that you love, will fit in your bag, and has plenty of pages to fill!

We will have a few Leuchtturm1917 notebooks available at the workshop for $25 (tax included), but quantities are limited, so please call ahead to have one placed on hold for you. The Leuchtturm1917 features high quality, acid-free paper that resists ink bleed-through, dotted, numbered pages, a table of contents, two ribbon bookmarks, and an elastic closure. It's black, 5"x8", and 250 pages.

You may also want to bring a favourite pen, but we'll have lots of other supplies to help make your new bullet journal feel like home.

Bonus: on the day of the workshop, participants will get 10% off all regularly-priced merchandise in our gift shop.

Old Card Workshop

Old Card Workshop, January 28, 2018, 2:00pm - 4:00pm, Toronto's First Post Office (260 Adelaide St. East), $20, pre-registration required.

Do you have stacks of old, used greeting cards? Cards that are too beautiful to declutter? Too meaningful to toss?

Paper fans, rejoice! There is new life for old cards! In this workshop, we'll make a series of useful items from your old cards, including notebooks, new cards, wallets, and more! You'll get instructions, and the time, help, and supplies to make as many as you like during the workshop.

Bring your most significant cards, cards with eye-catching images, or used cards that would be perfect for someone else if only they weren't... used. We will revive them! We'll also have some from our own substantial stash for you to use.
