You’ll find some basic info about the sessions here, plus I will post other pieces after each class.
HOW TO ATTEND
Well, this is the year of Zoom, and LBP is no exception in that regard. You will receive the Zoom link in the morning of the day of our first class. If you haven’t Zoomed or if you have technical questions, please email Sweetie Berry, with the subject line “LBP Tech” and she will walk you through it beforehand. You will be muted during parts of the class, but you can always ask questions or interact, either in the chat box or by wiggling your hand in the air so I can see you, call on you and unmute you.
We will meet for two 3-hour sessions on two consecutive days:
Monday, December 28, 2:30 to 5:30 pm Central ( 3:30 to 6:30 pm Eastern; 1:30 to 4:30 pm Mountain; 12:30 to 3:30 pm Pacific).
Tuesday, December 29, 2:30 to 5:30 pm Central ( 3:30 to 6:30 pm Eastern; 1:30 to 4:30 pm Mountain; 12:30 to 3:30 pm Pacific).
There will be a 15-minute break halfway through each session (3:45 Central).
Please get the following simple, inexpensive, easy-to-get materials before class. You probably have many of these items on hand already.
- A nice pristine notebook (any kind you like) in which to take notes during the sessions.
- One to three durable, hard-cover, blank spiral side-bound 5X8.5 inch notebook(s), which will become your planner(s). I sometimes use these Pro Art notebooks. Any notebook that meets these criteria is fine; I have sometimes found usable ones on the shelves at Staples or Office Depot. Each notebook typically covers about three months (though it depends on the number of pages your particular notebook has. I usually purchase several at a time.
- Optional: I use the blank notebooks above to build my planner in, and I write the dates in it myself. However, if you want to save yourself the time and trouble of self-dating the pages, you can get a pre-dated sturdy 2021 planner. Be sure to choose one that A) provides a page a day and B) is 5X8.5. You’ll need a full page for each day, and the page must be blank, not pre-divided into categories or broken out hour by hour. This Moleskine planner meets those criteria. I have used pre-dated planners in the past, and landed on the fully blank notebooks as being best for me. But if you think writing in dates is going to bug you, get this. It comes in five different colors, too.
- Writing pens, of several colors, that you enjoy in your hands. I adore the Varsity Ink Pens and have also greatly enjoyed the Pilot Rolling Ball Pens. But it’s whatever feels pleasurable to you. These — a variety of colors, and that they feel good to you — are a must.
- Not essential, but nice to have on hand (you may already have some perfectly good equivalents): some other color options, such as a good quality set of colored markers (I love these two-tip ones by Tombow), colored pencils (these, from amazon, are good quality and reasonably priced for what you get), even a small watercolor set, with brushes. As I say, these are not strictly necessary, but I guarantee they will add playfulness and fun to your planning process… and the way we’ll use them engages the whole brain.
- And last, not remotely required for LBP, but so useful and neat if you work in multiple spaces or travel (remember ‘travel’?) that I can’t resist adding it here, perhaps for your someday wish-list: this nifty zip-up, push-down/pull up canvas pen carrier. Available in many different colors.
