The MäksēLife 2022 Planners are a goal setting system and weekly planner all in one. The proven goal system, founded by life coach Sierra Friend, incorporated throughout all the planners keeps your goals front and center all year long. The combination of annual goals, monthly goals, weekly actions and reflections makes holding yourself accountable and tracking progress easy and flexible. The emphasis is on progress and growth which can be seen in the brand’s tagline – “Just Begin”.
The goal system found in MäksēLife Planners focuses on eight areas of life – Personal, Fun & Recreation, Work & Learning, Family & Relationships, Health & Wellness, Spiritual & Personal Development, Financial and Physical Environment – to help you gain balance, fulfillment and satisfaction. The Compass Assessment guides you through evaluating these areas and deciding how to make changes and build new habits to design a life filled with harmony and intention.
This year’s collection offers more products than ever before. In addition to their Flagship Planners, MäksēLife is launching undated planners, a new daily format, inserts and even a digital version. Plus, there are tons of functional accessories and a new merch shop!
2022 FLAGSHIP PLANNERS
The MäksēLife Flagship Planners are 12-month dated planners that offer the unique goal setting system within the monthly and weekly pages of the planner. There are four cover designs including two artist covers, Floral (Jen Pace), Mixed Media (Shelley Chavis) plus a Chevron and Stripe design. All four cover designs are available in both vertical and horizontal weekly layouts. The goal pages have been refreshed with a more streamlined design for this year. The planners have 120 gsm paper with a wire-o coil, hardcover, a pocket folder and sticker sheet with an elastic band closure.
NEW UNDATED PLANNERS
The new collection of planners includes, for the first time, two undated planner options, weekly and daily. There are 6-month Undated Weekly Planners (basically the Flagship Planner split into two) that have all the same pages as the dated version but on a standard silver coil with a hard vegan Saffiano leather cover. They are available in horizontal or vertical layouts with a Blush or Taupe cover.
The Daily Undated Planners are a quarterly option in a compact A5 size that also includes the goal setting pages and monthly spreads followed by seven simple daily pages. The pages are designed to be minimal on purpose for you to make them work for your life and goals. They are available in four vegan Saffiano leather covers including Taupe, Blush, Teal and Salmon Red.
NEW UNDATED INSERTS
Both the Undated Weekly and Daily Planners are also available in a new insert option that is unbound and unpunched and can be used on rings or discs for ultimate flexibility. The insert packs include everything that is found in the bound planners including the folders and stickers plus plastic protective covers. There are horizontal and vertical layouts for the weekly inserts as well.
NEW DIGITAL PLANNER – Coming Soon
Digital planning is coming to MäksēLife! An exciting digital version of the Flagship Planner will be launching in December.

We are so excited to share our next “Planner-preneur” with you! In this ongoing series, we share an inside look at people from our community that have poured all their creativity and inspiration into a “planner-related” entrepreneurial venture. This month, we are keeping it all in the family again spotlighting a new family-owned shop in our community. LTL Print House, which just launched this month on Etsy, is the creation of Lisa, Tina and Lam, three women from the same family, who decided to join forces and launch a sticker shop featuring one-of-a-kind illustrations for planning and paper crafting.
We talked with all three of these “planner-preneurs” about starting their new sticker business, their own planner journeys and how launch is going so far. Take a listen to our chat to hear more about their goals for LTL Print House:
To put it simply, Lisa is married to Tina’s uncle and Lam is married to Lisa’s son. Lisa works on all sticker processing, cutting and operations while Tina focuses on social media and marketing. Lam is the talented designer behind the illustrations and creative designs. Together, they make an incredible team dedicated to bringing classic and functional stickers to the community. As long-time planners, the women of LTL are very versed in what planners enjoy, want and need. Each of them has their own talent and creativity to bring to the brand and are excited for what the future holds.
For the first launch, LTL Print House featured about 2o original designs (created by Lam) in their shop including hand-illustrated florals, hand-lettered scripts, and muted functional boxes. They are offering custom lettered name stickers as well and plan to offer other customs in the future. The brand aesthetic is minimal and neutral with a feminine flair and palette. The stickers in the shop are a combination of white matte paper and transparent in both traditional and big sizes. The designs have a real elegant and sophisticated look.
Behind The Shop is an ongoing series that features our talented and devoted shop owner community. Each time, we talk one-on-one with a shop owner/s to hear first hand what shop life is all about. Whether it’s a new shop that just came onto the scene or a popular community favorite – we want to share more about their journeys and stories with you.
The TPC Nation Shop is not your typical shop in the planner community! The shop, which officially opened in June 2020, is an extension of The Planners Collaborative (TPC), a Facebook group and collab sale which has blossomed into a true collaborative community of talented artisans and makers. In the past year since it opened, the TPC Nation Shop has had thousands of sales and created a space to showcase so many amazing, new crafters and products.
The Planners Collaborative (@therealTPC) Facebook group, founded by Caitlin LoCascio-King (AKA #mamaadmin), truly is the heart and soul of the TPC brand. The group holds monthly collab sales with dozens of shop owners in the community. But since the beginning, Caitlin envisioned so much more. In the past few years, she has expanded group activities to include things like book club, holiday card exchanges, in-person events and more plus the “off-shoot” opening of the TPC Nation Shop.
We spoke with Caitlin (#mamaadmin) about all things TPC, her personal planner journey as well as the incredible team of shop owners, admins and group members that help her make TPC a reality. Take a listen to our chat below plus hear about what exciting things are coming up:
TPC Nation is the official home of the TPC Nation Shop and all TPC events, parties, meet-ups and more. It is also a way to help crafters and artisans from around the community – whether they have a shop or not – gain a platform for selling their products. With more than 20 product categories on the official shop website, you can shop everything from planners and paintings to t-shirts and tumblers to mugs, official merch and more. TPC Nation has also given members the opportunity to launch collaborative projects such as the recently launched TPC Nation Planner with The Penny Pages and the upcoming Tipsy Dog Doodle Planner (Nov. 1st).
BLACK FRIDAY BOX & MAILER
Another exciting collaborative project coming to the shop is the third annual Black Friday Box & Mailer. The box and mailer are two separate “products” that can both be purchased exclusively at the TPC Nation Shop. Each one contains approximately 2o full-size exclusive items plus two bonus times which will be sold at less than 50% of the total retail value. The items included are a collaborative effort of the following talented participating creators, Avalon and Ninth, Beyond Paper Flowers, Caffeine Queens, Coffee Break Planner, Craft Penguin Planner, Itty Bitty Sticker Co, Keep It Simple Stickers, Perfect Prints Co, Planner Pixie Co, Plannin With Manny, Pretty Cute Planner, Punky B Designs, Purdee Planner Sammy Doodle Designs, Tarin’s Sticker Shop, The Penny Pages, The Sticker Patch, Tilly Bee Plans, Tiny Little Tulip, TPC Nation Shop and Wonder Stickers Co.
The mailer is specifically focused on stickers with only a few bonus items while the box is filled with a variety of planner items, accessories, exclusive merch and more. Both the box and mailer are available for purchase in the TPC Nation Shop on Monday, October 25th at 6pm EST through Friday, October 29th at 11:59pm EST or until they sell out. The mailers will be available for purchase at two launch dates: Monday, October 25th at 6pm EST and Thursday, November 25th at 11am EST.
TPC NATION 2022 CONFERENCE
Hosting local planner meet-ups, parties and events in different cities is also another important community building part of the TPC brand. The most recent being a “Garden Party” Event in Maine and a meet up in Houston.
For 2022, TPC has announced their plans for a conference in July which will take place in Cincinnati, OH. It will be a fun-filled time with speakers, workshops and vending. Speakers, which have been announced so far, include Chaz Jorgensen @shamelessstickers and Sandra Spitaleri @thesassyclub. Stay tuned for more information to be announced.
Have you been working on your 2022 planner stack? There have definitely been plenty of releases and cover reveals to keep you wanting all the planners. But, when it comes to choosing the best planner for you it’s what’s on the inside that matters most. Yes, we all love the gorgeous covers and shiny new foil but the layout can really be a deal breaker when it comes to function and making your planner work for you.
In this upcoming series of the Planner’s Guide, we are going to take a closer look at some of the many layout options that are currently available. This time, we are focusing on weekly layout options (vertical section, vertical columns, hourly, horizontal, custom) to help you decide which planner will work best for you in the year ahead.
Before we dive in, let’s first consider a few important questions:
All of this and more — like size, paper quality, binding, portability — are important when choosing a planner. Plus compound that with the distraction of shiny object syndrome or FOMO during launch season and you can later be left feeling buyer’s remorse.
WEEKLY PLANNER LAYOUTS
There is definitely no shortage of options when it comes to weekly layouts considering most people really appreciate having that week-at-a-glance. In fact, just about every brand offers their own version of weekly planner. Here are a few examples and recommendations to explore:
CUSTOM & UNIQUE
