Welcome! My name is Mary and I am so happy you are here. I am a blogger and crafter specializing in making non leather notebook covers (which includes mini-wallets and fauxdoris in pocket and wide sizes). What I do is help women find a perfect individualized planner that fits their needs. I focus on the using the fauxdori as a functional planner for non artistic women. I personally can’t draw so if I decorate it, I only do so with washi tape.
M. Rettig is a blog for women who are are frustrated with their planners. I blog about helpful tips on how to use bullet journals, writing journals, and fauxdori notebooks for better productivity, purpose and meaning.I also write about journaling and keeping a prayer and gratitude journal.
I teach women to use notebooks held together with elastic as well as how to create their own planners . What makes me different from others is that I sell odd size fauxdoris and help/guide you to use your planner (notebook) for better time management and productivity.
I am opening an Etsy Shop and creating both a free and paid course on how to use your new planner (notebook).
If you have any questions, please post them below.
