I love pocket planners, but most don’t include a usable monthly calender with the current week. This has always frustrated me, so I created a set of small Monthly Calendars that are available as a free download at www.journalingarts.com.
The Monthly Calendars measure 4¾” x 3¼” and were designed to fit into Moleskine, Ciak, Cartesio, and Rhodia planners and will also fit into the back envelope for storage. Use one as a bookmark and you’ll always have your month to view where you need it.
Slide a Monthly Calendar into your Moleskine planner and use it as a bookmark to keep your monthly overview close at hand.
Each season is designated by a color and design. The free downloads are in color, but will print beautifully in black & white on your laser printer.
There is also a free download of lined Notecards that was designed to fit on the back of the calendars, but can be used alone for adding Notecards to your planning. You can print these out on the backside of your calendars by printing on both sides of your paper. The Notecards and Calendars were designed to line up properly when printed on both sides.
Free Notecards download can be used alone or with the Monthly Calendars for additional organization.

The new Ciak 2010 Planners in stock at http://www.journalingarts.com and they are gorgeous! With seven colors to choose from including a rich purple, you can choose the color that suits you best.
Rich purple is a new color this year at JournalingArts.com.
Ciak Planners feature a colorful, buttery-smooth cover that make them unique. The paper is pale ivory in color, is acid-free and is thicker than the paper in the Moleskine planners. The weekly format spreads across 2 pages with 4 days on the left page and 3 days on the right with a space for notes after Sunday. There is a removable, tabbed address book in the rear of the planner along with some ruled pages for notes and a 2-page spread that is gridded.
The interior pages have been updated for 2010 and now include a small monthly planner in the lower right corner of each 2-page spread. This feature was requested by many users last year and I am glad to see that it was included. If you right-click this photo and then select view image, you will be able to see an enlarged view of the planning pages.

Monthly Calendars are in the front of the planner for long range planning. The arrangement of the days is vertical rather than horizontal, which seems a little bit different the first time you see it, but it works just as well.
A Time Zone Map keeps your travel plans on track.
The Ciak Planner has a tabbed, removable address book.
If you are looking for a quality, handmade planner with great Italian style, you may want to give the Ciak planner a try. It is a high-quality journal made from durable materials designed to go the long haul. The vibrant colors add a carefree feeling that you just can’t match with a plain, black planner.
