2020 Calendar Insert & Delightful Dashboards for an Agenda

Welcome to the 571st Metamorphosis Monday!

Toward the end of 2017, after years of buying a new agenda/calendar at the start of each year, I decided to make a change for 2018. I decided to purchase an agenda cover that I could refill each year.

Having just fallen hard for Louis Vuitton after seeing one of their amazing antique trunks in an LV store while vacationing in Maui, I decided to go with an LV agenda in their historic monogram design.

 

I chose their larger GM size (A5 size) since I had no plans to carry it with me in my handbag during the day and wanted an agenda that would lay open on my desk 24/7. I also wanted the date squares/boxes on the calendar pages to be large enough to jot down appointments and other info on each date.

I was a little nervous about this purchase since I’d never had an actual agenda before and hoped I wouldn’t regret it. After using it daily for a full year, I can unequivocally say, I love it! I especially love the “notes” section in the back where I can store those things I need to refer to on a regular basis. This agenda even accompanies me on trips when I travel. I consider this agenda to be one of my best purchases for 2017-2018.

Update: If you’re interested in purchasing and LV agenda and would like to save a bit on the cost, you’ll find them both New and Pre-loved in various sizes (including the size I have) here: Louis Vuitton Agendas. (Note: This is the only place I shop preloved since authenticity is verified AND you can return an item during the first 30 days if it’s not what you expected or wanted as long as the tag is still attached.)

One of the reasons I love using my agenda so much is due to the layout/design of the calendar insert I purchased back in December 2017 when I bought my agenda. I found the cutest LV inspired insert here: LV Inspired Calendar Insert. Mel, the owner of the shoppe, has so many beautiful inserts for all kinds of agendas.

Besides the calendar inserts, I also purchased a bunch of her Louis Vuitton inspired dashboards. Dashboards are the little dividers you can place between the months of between other sections of your agenda. All the LV inspired dashboards were purchased in 2018. This is the one I used in front of January…love it so much! Please note, the colors of the agenda dashboards are much prettier/bolder in person. My camera doesn’t really capture the vividness of the colors. The red is actually closer to a deep red than shown below.

Also, toward the front of my agenda, you’ll find this Year-at-a-Glance calendar. I always like having one of these at the front of my agenda.

Here are a few more of the dashboard dividers you’ll find sprinkled throughout my agenda. Again, the colors are much prettier/bolder than they appear in my photos. I think the protective finish of each dashboard created glare and that’s why my camera had a hard time capturing the true colors.

Love the individual monthly dashboards, again LV inspired.

 

Sooo cute! Love that Speedy!

Several of the dashboards are designed where they can be personalized, like this one where Mel added my name to the little heart bag charm.

Arggg, love these dashboards so much!

I’m a big Tiffany and Co. fan so I had to include a few of those dashboards in my agenda. A girl can dream, ya know?! 😉 Again, this dashboard is much, much prettier in person!

At first, I thought this might be a quote from the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but it’s actually a quote by Dorothy Parker. In any case, it gave me a giggle.

I just purchased this dashboard a few months ago right before Halloween. As you would expect, I placed it in front of the October section in my agenda. I LOVE the design and the colors are gorgeous in person! When ordering a dashboard, in most cases you get to pick the hair color of the woman depicted on each dashboard.

 

Had to get this one since I have a passion for travel these days. It’s before the note section I created for Travel ideas in my agenda.

 

Mel makes the calendar inserts and the dashboards for different size agendas. You’ll find her calendar inserts and dashboards here: Calendar Inserts and Dashboards. 

Note: Look to the left of the page at that link to see all the different categories/items she has available. If you don’t see one that you want, contact Mel by clicking on “Contact” at the top of her shoppe/website and she may be able to make it for you.

I purchased these stickers last year to use throughout my agenda and they add so much fun to each page. I had enough left over for this year, I didn’t need to buy them again this year. You’ll find these adorable stickers here: Stickers for Agenda or Calendar.

I also purchased these to highlight dental/doctor appointments: Stickers for Appointments.

Hope you find these ideas helpful as you plan ahead for 2020!

  1. Thanks so much for hosting each week!!
    Hugs,
    Deb

  2. Enjoyed your post. So many people, including me, use online calendars now.
    It would be hard to go back to paper, but I would buy this if I did!

    • Thanks, Nancy! I tried that for a brief period but just didn’t enjoy it. I even had it set up where it would place notices on my desktop each day. I may have to try it again one day. I really do love having an agenda I can manually flip through.

  3. Those are so fun Susan! I had a paper agenda for a long long time, and loved it! Your agenda is darling!

  4. What a cute planner, I love all the fun artwork in it and the stickers. I only use the calendar on my laptop/iPhone, easier for me but I do miss the cute paper ones 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for hosting! I am excited to share my goals for 2020, four amazing books to read this month and the highlights of 2019. Happy New Year!

  6. Cute, Susan! I’m an old school girl, just using a monthly planner for jotting daily notes and saving papers until I can scan them. The common denominator, though, is organization. I’m all over that, even after a big downsize. Have a great week and thanks for inviting us in.

  7. Thank you for hosting! Happy New Year!

  8. Susan, you make detail orientation look fun and glamorous! I wish you could come live with me for a week and straighten out my life, LOL.

    (or maybe just my home and office!!!)

  9. Love your agenda! The inserts and organization are great. May have to reconsider an agenda versus my phone. Is yours 9 x 7.5?

    When I was working my organizer kept me on track for business and personal, I used it faithfully. Now that I’m retired I just use a regular calendar for appointments and have started to journal for goals, special quotes, insights, etc. Love her drawings.

  12. Randi Strode says

    I just found your planner set up and LOVE the LV monthly dividers. Can you send the pictures of the other months. I’ve contacted the shop owner who did yours and asking for her to make a set for me. Thanks!!!
