We are so excited to introduce our limited edition Appointed × D. Michele Perry collaboration—24 bespoke planners featuring elegant floral motifs to inspire your next year of growth. Today, we’re sharing all the details about this collab, answering your most burning questions, and giving you a sneak peek at these one-of-a-kind works of art so you’re ready for launch day. Let’s get to it.
When is the collaboration being released?
The Appointed × D. Michele Perry collaboration will go live at appointed.co on Tuesday, October 10 at 1pm EST. We’ll send out a link via our newsletter, so make sure you’re signed up for our mailing list for first dibs.
How many limited edition planners are available?
We’re releasing a very limited quantity of 24 bespoke, hand-painted 2024 Year Task Planners. Each and every planner is one-of-a-kind, with six colors to choose from.
We recognize these planners may sell out quickly and not everyone who wants one will be able to purchase one. We hope to have more special collaborations like this in the future. We will also be sharing a blog post in the next few weeks written by the artist detailing how to embellish your own planner.
Can these be monogrammed?
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of these planners, monograms will not be available for this collaboration.
What kind of paint are the planners embellished with?
The details on each planner are hand-painted with matte acrylic artist-grade paint and acrylic gouache paint. Each embellishment is then finished with a matte sealer to protect the artwork.
How much will the planners cost?
Each piece is priced between $125 and $200 based on not only the planner materials, but the time that went into hand-painting each cover. We see each piece in this collection as a one-of-a-kind work of art.
We recognize this price point is out of range for many, and that is why we are planning a how-to blog post with Michele on how to embellish your own planner—so you can confidently create your own work of art on any of our bookcloth covers.
Is this collaboration supporting any local non-profits?
A portion of proceeds will be donated to City Blossoms, a D.C. non-profit cultivating the well-being of our communities through creative programming in kid-driven gardens.
Who is the artist?
D. Michele Perry is a watercolor and mixed-media fine artist and author whose art and writing explore the connection, courage, and curiosity rooted in wonder as a daily practice, the beauty of the natural world, and the power of our unfolding stories. She is also a creativity coach and founder of The Wonder Habit™, a growing online community for creatives and and entrepreneurs dedicated to helping them craft a sustainable creative practice while growing their business. Michele brings 20+ years of experience in the international nonprofit world, leading regional projects on three continents, and is passionate about the intersection of art and advocacy. She's a lover of open roads, blank pages, and wild spaces. Most often, you'll find her wandering along shorelines, sitting in forests with a well-worn book of poetry, or creating in her northeast Florida studio.
Can I return a planner I purchase from this special collection?
Due to the limited nature of this collab, Appointed × D. Michele Perry pieces are final sale and not eligible for return or exchange.
We can’t wait to share the full collection with you on October 10! Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions.
