Amazing Planning Power – our Monthly Planners pack a lot of power. They cover September 2017 – January 2020. 32 pages of pure planning power. Each page spread features one month, daily spaces are generous, and there’s a bit of room for notes. Sweet mini grids for the next and previous months are also included.
Easy to Carry! They measure 5″ x 7″, feature just 32 pages. Perfectly-sized for any bag.
The covers are made from smooth, matte-finish, thick paper. While not waterproof, you can definitely get a few drops of water (ok, coffee) on these and not worry about it – just wipe it off and keep going.
Price! At just under $10, Brush Dance Monthly Planners are perfectly priced. Talk about value for your money – for $10, you can be organized through 2019.
Here’s a closer look at the planner (no audio = safe at work!). If you can’t see the video below, click here.
Life is Beautiful is the one I have in my bag right now, but if that’s not your cup of tea (pun intended!), we have five other covers – definitely something for everyone.
Finally, I can’t let today pass without acknowledging the importance of this day in American history. I am grateful for the first responders of NY and beyond, sad for all of the senseless loss, and hopeful for the future.
Happy Labor Day to those of you in the US. I hope you’re off doing something really special to celebrate this unofficial end of summer.

Our Mindful Eating calendar for 2018 is one of my favorite new titles.
With thoughtful and inspiring quotes combined with beautiful food photography, this 12″ x 12″ Wall Calendar is perfect for any kitchen.
In a very non-pushy way, this calendar reminds us that it’s important for us to pay attention to how we are feeding our bodies. A very wise woman once told me that we have to pay attention to how we are eating in order to make changes. Being more mindful about food has definitely helped me make better choices for myself (most days, anyway.)
We’ve made a video that shows each of the inside pages just a bit bigger. If you can’t see the video below, click here.
Today, I’m excited to show you some more of our Weekly Planner options.
What I like about the Weekly Planner:
Convenient Take-Along Size – 5″ x 7″- will fit into nearly any bag easily
Monthly Planning Pages at the start of the book
One week per page spread – with lots of room for notes
Elastic Band to help me keep my life together, and a beautiful satin finish on the cover that resists staining and water damage
I know it seeeeeems like 2018 is still so far away. And yet, I’m already noticing some changes to the season here in California. I’m going to start filling in my Planner for next year very soon so that I don’t have to think about it during the oh-so-busy end of year.
These Planners are printed on high-quality paper – no tissue-thin sheets that tear easily.
We’ve created a video showing the inside pages of our 2018 Weekly Planner. You can click right here to see. No worries about doing this at work – our videos have no sound.
I’m so happy to share with you today that Brush Dance now has Lihit Lab pen cases and notebook/planner covers in stock and ready to ship!
Lihit Lab is a popular Japanese brand that I’ve used for years. And as you know, at Brush Dance, we are only committed to selling items that we actually use and love.
My first experience with Lihit Lab was the B5 Notebook Cover (shown above and below). I loved it so much that I bought one for everyone at Brush Dance.
Here’s some of what I love about these covers:
Durability – made with Cordura canvas, this cover is made to last. After more than three years of daily use, mine (in navy blue) looks brand new.
Pockets! OMG with the pockets!
The large front velcro-type closed pocket is large and deep enough to hold a variety of items. Right now, I have a pencil, eraser, and ruler in mine and there’s still plennnnty of room for more.
The front also features two pen holder pockets. These pockets are large enough to contain nearly any writing instrument. There’s also a “slip-in” pocket on the front cover to hold a few sheets of folded paper – I keep bills that I need to pay in there.
Once inside, there are even more pockets. On the inside front cover, there are three additional slip-in pockets. These are smaller than the one on the front and will easily accommodate planning stickers, credit cards, a few folded up dollar bills, or paper clips. And, finally, the inside back cover features a flap where I tuck important papers and larger sticker sheets.
Bookmarks – two satin ribbon bookmarks in different colors – so handy!
Room For It All – Right now, I have just one B5 Leuchtturm notebook in mine, but in the past, I’ve had two with no problem. And here’s what I’m most excited about:
Our brand new Karma Planners fit perfectly into this Notebook Cover. Karma Planners begin with weekly spreads starting in November 2017 – and I can’t wait!! I’m planning to start filling in important dates very soon.
The A5 Notebook Cover (shown above) has all of the same great features as the B5 shown above – just in a more compact size. This one is compatible with the Leuchtturm A5 Notebooks that are so popular for bullet journaling.

Today, our Creative Manager, Susan, shares some of her favorite items with us. In case you missed them, here are links to the other posts in this series: ShawnaKarma
Susan has such an important job at Brush Dance. She is responsible for our products from conception, through printing and production. It’s one of those positions where a person needs to be both creative/artistic and well-organized. A rare combination, and she fits the bill perfectly!
Our 2018 Dreamer’s Realm Wall Calendar is one of Susan’s top picks. She said, “Catrin Welz-Stein’s art is so magical and beautifully painted that it is a treat to look at each image for a month. I will never grow tired of her work.”
All of us love this Planner (and the coordinating Journal!). Susan says she gets lots of approving nods while carrying this Planner – and she wishes she could use it for four years instead of one!
Well. Sometimes, you just have to say it how it is, right? Susan thinks this pair of Blue Q Socks would make a great gift for all of our feminist friends. She loves the bold and colorful Girl Power statement. These socks are not just pretty – they are comfy and hold up great.
The adorable Coin Purse above would make a great gift. Susan envisions filling it with pennies and presenting it as a fun-filled (?) birthday gift! Ha!
The larger tote is, “distinctive and colorful. You can use it for your airport gear (the zipper keeps things secure!), beach stuff, kid stuff, or for anything that won’t fit in your purse. And since it’s about 15 inches wide, it’s not too big or cumbersome.”
Susan’s final favorite pick is Table Topics. She had this to say:
My family has lots of talkers. And, we all love games. Table Topics is a catalyst for interesting and lively conversations about things we’ve never talked about as a group. When was the last time you discussed:
Have you ever been escorted out by security?
Who’s had too much plastic surgery?
Would you rather spend a week in jail or serve two weeks community service?
You’ll learn a thing (or two!) about your friends and family, and have some fun in the process. If you exhaust these 135 questions, there are plenty more versions of the game you can pick up.
And there we have it! Susan’s Favorite Things! I love that she has eclectic taste and a great sense of humor!
I also wanted to let you know that we’re planning some exclusive sales for people who are on our mailing list. You can sign up on our website!
