As you may know, Deskorators is a Brand Ambassador for Pure Planners UK, and what better way to find out a little about them by delving in behind the scenes with this Q&A.
Hi, I’m Amy, creator of Pure Planners! I live in Suffolk, UK. I live with my Fiance, our little boy and our beagle! I work in a school as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant.
How did you get into planning?
I can’t really pin point this down to a specific time or place. From a very early age I loved everything to do with stationery and always enjoyed writing lists etc. This has just continued (and worsened) as I’ve gotten older. Also, my job requires lots of lesson planning and organisation so I obviously need cupboards full of planners, notebooks and stationery!
What type of planners do you prefer?
At the moment, I’m favouring my Personal filofax. I like the fact that I can create my own inserts specific to my needs. It’s also the perfect size; small enough to fit in to my bag, but big enough to house everything I need,
Do you have a go to planning snack or drink and, if so, what are they?
A cup of tea is definitely essential for any planning task!
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
To pause time! Then I could get all of the housework and other boring jobs done and still have time to plan!
Why did you want to start Pure Planners?
I was searching for planner inserts, but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. I decided to have a go at designing and making my own. It took a long time and a lot of trial and error but eventually I achieved what I wanted. Then friends started to request different inserts and I thought… why not?! Primarily, it’s something that I enjoy, and the Pure planner social media also gives me a platform to talk about planners/ stationery without boring my friends on my personal account!
If you had one piece of advice for a new planner, what would you say?
Definitely take a look on social media. There are so many great people in the planner community with amazing ideas to give you inspiration and encouragement.
Not only does Amy have a great name (ok… what can I say – perhaps I am a little biased!), Pure Planners’ inserts are beautiful and the quality is sublime. It can be incredibly challenging to find inserts that are just right, especially for the smaller planners such as the personal size as you can be limited to space. Yet, Pure Planners inserts are just perfect!
Until next time…
