Keeping an agenda is an important part of staying on top of your to-do lists and appointments, but we know that not everyone's life falls neatly into a twelve-month cycle. It's for this reason that our line of Dayplanners includes titles in an 18-month format as well as the traditional 12- and 13-month varieties. It's never too early to think about which one of these handy schedulers you will select to keep you organised for July 2014 through December 2015.
All of our 2014 Dayplanners are made to the exacting standards you can expect from every Paperblanks® product. And we have good news for those of you with busy weekends: We've heard your feedback and separated Saturday and Sunday into their own columns in the Vertical formats! Visit our Dayplanners webpage for more information.
From unexpected quarters come unlikely pioneers. Florence Nightingale (1820–1910) was born to privilege in a time when young ladies of good breeding had few opportunities to feel truly useful. Nursing, in particular, was considered beyond the pale, yet the audacious Nightingale insisted on making it her vocation. She took a small and passionate nursing staff to the front lines of the Crimean War, offering solace to the wounded, and later founded the Nightingale School and Home for Nurses, the first secular nursing school.
With today being International Nurses Day (held annually on the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth), we thought it the ideal time to introduce our new Embellished Manuscript, Florence Nightingale, Letter of Inspiration journal. Featuring a handwritten excerpt from a fourteen-page letter that the famed nurse sent to her staff on January 1st, 1878, this new Paperblanks title is available in Mini and Ultra formats.Nightingale's entire letter can be read as part of the University of British Columbia's Digital Library.
