Life in May

Paper & Glam - Life in May with Erin Condren

Welcome to May!

Today I'm taking a very spring-inspired coffee break planning out May including my editorial calendar, which is an outline of the content that will go up on Paper & Glam.

This month we'll dive into the three most-requested topics - What's In My Bag?!, Bible Study, and Project Life. Of course this is in addition to our regularly scheduled events! 

This coming Wednesday 5/6, Alexis Giostra and I will be hosting our second Glampire Chat live on P&G TV. This month we take on branding! Do you have questions about building a brand that resonates with your desired audience and creates a uniform experience for your community? Join us! We'll be sharing our lessons learned over the past 7 years building our businesses. 

The following week we'll be doing a slight variation on the monthly Inside My Planner series with a Plan with Me! Not much has changed in my planning routine since April's Inside My Planner, so it feels like a great time to show you how I set-up my planner stamp by stamp and sticker by sticker!

For those of you patiently awaiting the Erin Condren Notebook Review & Set-up video, it's going live tomorrow morning with a giveaway! I've gotten lots of feedback that you're enjoying the weekend vlogs, so we'll keep those going, too. I can't promise a vlog every weekend but they'll absolutely be a recurring series. 

If you're like me, and this weekend you plan to spend some time mapping the month ahead, let's make sure to build some celebrations into our schedule.  

Here's my May Life List which includes 15 reasons to celebrate this month:

The Glam Shop - May Life ListAfter many requests, there is now a FREE downloadable and editable version of my May Life List up in the shop!

The download comes with two files, one 5x7 .PNG file perfect for resizing and uploading to your favorite photo printer (or printing at home) and a second .PSD file. The .PSD file can be opened in Photoshop & Photoshop Elements (my choice). The application is available as a month-long free trail, $9.99/month, and even better the full license is on sale for $70 until 5/11.

Photoshop Elements is the application I use to create all of the graphics you see on Paper & Glam, it's a must for any creative. 

What's on your May Life List? I can't wait to spend the weekend celebrating Scrapbooking Day working on Project Life!

If you create your own Life List I'd love to see it on Instagram with #paperandglam or in the Paper & Glam Planning Group.

For more info on the heart behind Life Lists and previous months (January through April), they now have their own home under the category Life Lists.

 See you tomorrow for the Erin Condren Notebooks Review & Set-up video and giveaway.

Happy May,



I am looking forward to everything you have coming up. I just wanted to stop by and say thank you. In the last few months finding your videos and your blog have helped me make quite a few improvements in my life. You have helped me learn how to be more organized, look to God for all things, and to even try and be more creative. So thank you and I look forward to see what you have coming up next.

Every time I watch your videos I fall back in love with the EC planner (and now notebook). I know you mentioned the colorful pens in your video but what are they again? I LOVE them. I must say that you are an inspiration to me and I wanted to thank you or doing these videos. :)

Hi Tara! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a note. I appreciate you. The pens in the picture are the Poppin Signature Pens: http://goo.gl/igShgH

Hi Christina,
Wow, what a beautiful and encouraging comment. Thank you for taking the time to leave it for me. I'm having a bit of a tired Sunday, but reading this before I unplug and recharge for the week is so uplifting.

Much love,


Thank you for making an editable version of the life list available! I love these so much as it is important for me to find balance in my life. I can easily get caught up in my work! Thanks again!
