Peter Pauper Press Planners (A Review of Sorts)


Bought some planners for 2019! (I get two every year, since I like to turn one into a logbook for my art, keeping track of what I accomplish each day, while the other is used for normal planner purposes.) Peter Pauper Press has been my favorite brand for planners for years, so those are the ones I always choose to purchase.

Why do I love their planners so much? Well…

1) The spaces for Saturday and Sunday are just as big as the weekday ones!
2) They aren’t lined! (I sometimes need to squeeze a lot of info into a space, so I find lined planners restricting.)
3) It can double as an address book, since there are pages in the back for that. If you need to jot down some notes, there are lined pages in the back, as well. (This comes in handy for my art logbook, since I can keep a tidy list of all the art I’ve completed in a year.)
4) The overall quality is just excellent. (Durable hardcovers with gorgeous art, attached bookmarks, a spine that isn’t spiral-bound, etc.)

Thanksgiving

Vampires should never be in charge of Thanksgiving dinner...

"Thanksgiving Prep" | August 2018

(I had originally planned for this to be a traditional piece, before deciding to color it digitally, which is why you guys see my ugly handwriting in the word bubbles for a change, LOL.)

Because this is Tess and Jay’s first Thanksgiving without their mom, Ethan's determined to make it THE BEST EVER for them. His cooking skills have always been pretty basic, though, and they've become even rustier as a vampire, since he no longer needs to cook for himself, sooooo...this was dumb, needless to say. Baptiste is no help, either, since he's been a vampire much longer than him. (And he even tried to warn Ethan how bad of an idea this was. Shame on you for ignoring him, Ethan.)

And no, going to a relative's isn't an option. Ethan and Lilibeth used to do that for Thanksgiving, but during his first year as a vampire, too many nosy family members were all, “Why isn’t Ethan eating?! Ethan should eat something. YOU’D LOOK LESS ILL IF YOU ATE SOMETHING, ETHAN.” So…it just became easier for them to stay home and do their own thing. Ethan’s too stubborn to drag his kids to a relative’s, at this point!
