An Interview with Kristy from Giftie Etcetera!

October 15, 2015

Hey dolls!  Today I am really excited to have fellow planner blogger Kristy!



1. What planner/planners do you have? Are there any you want to get?


I own so many planners. I own three Day-timers (from the Family Plus series), a couple of Franklin Classic planners (zip up in black leather and a synthetic brown), and a Boston compact with luscious blue leather.

2. What planners are you using at the moment?


I use a Franklin Covey Flourish as my day-to-day planner. It’s a little bigger than 4 x 6 (a size that Franklin calls “compact”) and small enough to tuck into my purse. It’s also inexpensive and easy to wipe down if I spill coffee on it (*mumbles* once a week *mumbles*). For my insides, I am using a cut-up Orange Circle Paris planner.

3. What are your favorite planner brands?


This question is so unfair. There are too many to choose from! J But I do appreciate the Franklin Planner layouts and Quo Vadis planners.

4. Where do you draw inspiration from for your planner?


I blog about planners (and other stuff) at, and my Loyal Readers (as I call them) are my main inspiration. I also love reading other planner blogs!


5. Do you any favorite planner bloggers?


Laura at Plannerisms, Patti at Homemakers Daily, and Becky at Planner Fun always teach me something!

6. What are 5 things for your planner that you absolutely can't leave the house without?


Navy blue 0.5 Frixion pen, Frixion highlighter, This Week page marker, post-its, and a great purse that holds my planner.

7. What is the current theme for your planner pages?


I have a Paris-themed planner right now, but I also adore anything to do with coffee and have some coffee magnets in my planner.

8. What would you describe your planner decoration style as?


Minimal. I use pretty things in a practical way, but rarely decorate beyond that!

9. How did you first discover your love of planners?

I was born! Seriously, I cannot remember a time when I didn’t have a planner. I went to boarding school in high school, and that’s when the true love affair blossomed!


10. What is your favorite thing about Live. Love. Planners.?


I like the clean layout of the information presented. It’s really easy to read and you learn more about planners there.


I am the blogger at, but I’m also a mom, a wife, a teacher, and a telecommunications lawyer. Since I work part-time from home, I get to blog and write novels. My first novel is coming out…well, whenever I find a publisher. Although I write romances, I always try to have a planner or two in the plot!
