The Big Picture Planner: An Effective System for Getting Things Done

The Big Picture Planner: An Effective System for Getting Things Done

It's no secret that the Big Picture Planner is a simple and effective system for getting things done. Hear how it's helped Brittany of Brittany Chandler Photography: "This planner is so wonderful. With a part time job, photography business, busy blog and website, and miscellaneous duties as a Clickin Moms mentor, I need to be organized and stay on top of everything. This planner was the ticket. The blogger add-on was a must have for me as I curate blog post ideas for work, for my own blog, and for numerous photography blogs within the industry. I also love having one place for all of my ideas, as they used to be housed on my messy and unorganized iPhone, and it random notebooks that get lost. The weekly to-do pages are so important, as each week looks different for me, with different deadlines and responsibilities.

After deciding what pages I needed for my planner, I printed out 6 months worth on my home computer in 5.5x8.5 sized pages. I resized within the Print window instead of resizing in Photoshop. It worked perfectly. I added some ruled paper for my random note taking as well, hole-punched the pages, and it fits perfectly into a mini binder that I purchased from Target. I love this planner so much, and it's so nice having it this size so I can take it with me everywhere. It goes in my purse and comes with me to work, is on my desk when at my home computer, and sleeps on my nightstand in case a great, insomnia-inspired idea strikes."

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital. What you might not expect is that I still embrace the traditional medium of film; in fact, it now lies at the heart of the images we create at Cooper Photography. I've encountered many milestones over the years, but what I could not have foreseen were the three notable changes that saw me move full circle:
