What also adds fuel to my fire is connecting with you

As a Minnesota lifer, the things that currently fuel my bonfire are Caribou Coffee, the band NEEDTOBREATHE, and the thrill of making minimal yet meaningful planners and accessories for you.

I'm the creator and one-woman show behind Sprouted Planner, and all things planner enthusiast.

Hey There! I'm Heather.

It's amazing that an entire plant can come from a tiny seed. A simple mindset can sprout and bloom into your meaningful life. 

Knowing there are so many others out there who need a minimal yet meaningful planner, I created the Sprouted Planner. Its name was inspired by the Jack Kornfield quote: "Be mindful of intention. Intention is the seed that creates our future."

I understand how having the right planner can make a difference, especially during messy seasons. After going through life changing events, I learned what was truly important: being intentional, taking the time to reflect, and a place to write all the to-dos and notes.

After having my first baby, I was having a hard time adjusting. When it finally started clicking, my dad was diagnosed with ALS and it felt like my world came crashing down. You see, my dad was one of my favorite people, and we've always had a very special bond. So, this 2-5 year death sentence was earth shattering. On top of it all, I went back to work, moved, bought a house, and moved again. All of this within 10 months. It was hard keeping my head above water. My dad died 2 years after his diagnosis, and is the hardest thing I have been through.

The planner I had during that time did not serve me well since I wasn't goal setting, or tracking habits, or keeping count of how much water I consumed in the day. There is nothing wrong with those things, but I had zero capacity to do them. Even having them on the page added to the overwhelm.

If You Would Have Asked Me What I'd Be Spending My 30s Doing, It Certainly Wouldn't Have Been "Making Planners." But You Know How The Story Goes: Girl Meets Planner In College...Girl Falls In Love With Planners...Girl Thinks She Found The Planner Of Her Dreams...Planner Falls Short In Her Time Of Need...Girl Creates Her Own Planner. Classic.

I hope it allows you to approach whatever circumstance you're in with your clearest mindset. I desire that you reflect over your months in writing, and further cultivate your intentions so you can richly harvest from even the hardest seasons.

meet you where you're at, and not add to your overwhelm.

It's my dream to have this planner

You can find me at home with my 3 long eye-lashed beloveds - my husband Aaron, and 2 kids (Gracyn and Oliver).

When they are away, I love working on Sprouted and connecting with amazing women in this small but mighty community.

"I cannot imagine ever going back to another planner...I have reached true planner peace." 

"No planner has ever met my needs to way Sprouted has." 

"The set-up is perfect, the neutrality is wonderful, and I love the extras. I'm able to use it perfectly for work and home. And I love that you gave us spaces that are open and unlabeled."

Don't just take our word for it
