New in the Shop | 2014 Planners!

July 31, 2013
I am so excited to share this new product. This is something that has been in the works for well over a year. I created my first planner for the 2013 calendar year because I have never been able to find a planner I truly love. I hear lots of women say this so hopefully this will be their solution! It is pretty fabulous if I do say so myself!

I (and a couple of family and friends) have used the planner this past year and I was able to make adjustments to make the planners even better for 2014. They are filled with the signature Stephanie Creekmur floral and gingham patterns and have bright signature Stephanie Creekmur colors throughout.

The planners are now available for pre-order.


This is a complete 2014 planner that also includes August-December of 2013 as well as the entire month of January 2015 so you really can begin using this planner any time in the next 5 months and still have an entire year worth of planning!
  • Dimensions: 9" x 7" - The perfect size. Large enough to be able to write down everything you need to and small enough so you can throw it in your purse and take it on the go.
  • White, Wire O binding - beautiful and durable.
  • Dated, weekly and monthly formats.
  • Monthly Views
    • Monthly format features some of my favorite inspirational and uplifting quotes and Bible verses.
    • I know the week technically starts with Sunday and ends with Saturday but I have never thought of my weeks in that way so the monthly format is laid out staring with Monday and ending with Sunday.
    • The weekends are done in fun patterns to help us remember that they are different than the rest of the week and we should act accordingly! :)
    • Space is available for notes as well as personal goals for the month.
    • This is something that may exist in a planner out there but I have never been able to find one. I have combined all monthly views together. When I am using the monthly view, I like to flip easily between months. I don't want to have to flip through the entire weekly view of that month.
  • Weekly Views
    • Lined sections to keep track of everything you have to get done in the day.
    • Notes sections available for both halves of the week to keep track of any extra to-dos.
    • Many planners I've used in the past have had super small Saturday and Sunday sections. The weekends are sometimes when I have the most going on so I tried to keep these sections large enough to fit all of our plans. 
  • Includes a notes section for all those things you need to jot down quickly.

Saying Goodbye to Fear & Doubt

July 20, 2013

I don't normally post on Saturdays but as I'm working on the final pieces of the website (launching Monday!) I just felt like I wanted to pop in and say hello! I am starting to feel hesitant about sharing what I've been working so hard on these last few months. Fear and doubt are terrible friends to have around, but sometimes they show up whether we like it or not! I am so proud of how much my tiny business has grown in the last year. I'm also very proud of my new online shop. No, it didn't cost me thousands of dollars and yes, a lot of it was DIY but I think the end result is true to who I am and more importantly true to the Stephanie Creekmur brand.

My website checklist won't be completely checked off - there are still product photos to be taken and products still in development - but my store will finally have an official home of it's very own. I hope that when people see it they see my heart and how much I love what I do.

The photo above is of my Great, Great-Grandma Alice's Bible (it was used in quite a few product shots) and it's marking one of my favorite verses, Jeremiah 29:11. I may not have it all figured out, but I know that all I have to do is put my trust in Him because He knows the plans He has for me.

It's Finally Coming...

July 17, 2013
Can you guess? I can't believe it, but I've finally set a launch date for the brand new Stephanie Creekmur shop. I've actually known about this date for a few months now, but didn't want to put it out there if I wasn't able to deliver since July has been a very busy month! I haven't even been home from Haiti a week yet - more on that amazing, humbling, life-changing experience later this week!



Remember the first time I went ugly early? Well, I'm doing it again y'all and I couldn't be more happy about it. There are still close to 50 things on my checklist that won't be completed before Monday, but who knows when those will be able to be checked off. Some just take time and others take money - both of which are in low supply!

I've worked so hard on this and I can't wait to share it! I will still be selling on Etsy but I can't wait for Stephanie Creekmur to have it's very own home on the World Wide Web. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter - you may get to see the new site first and you may even get a special surprise!

Thanks to everyone who has supported and cheered me on along the way! :)
