CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) -A high school student at Cape Central High used the quarantine lockdown back in March to start her own business. And it’s something that can help keep you organized.

Cape Central Highschool sophomore Ella-Rose Ferguson calls it a “Plournal” better known as a Planner plus Journal.

“My business is called Ella- Rose Originals,” she said.

A creation inspired during the pandemic.

“For my quarantine project, for the corona lock down this year, I started off by doing bullet journaling after I got a Christmas gift. It was just a bullet journal and some pins, and my mom was like, ‘oh we should sell this,’” she said.

She said it’s something everyone can use to help to stay on schedule especially high school students. “I think it’s really good because every week there’s enough space to fill out your most important things and at the beginning the month you can fill out your most important days.”

Each page has it’s own special theme.

“I’d sit on this front porch of our little farmhouse, and I was trying to look around to see what I can create for this from. What’s around me, so I ended up going with this cow design that I really like, because that’s kind of a trendy thing right now,” she said.

Ferguson’s planner cost $25, and she’s already sold 400 copies.

She said this is only the beginning for her business. “I plan to do something like this I’m not quite sure yet what it is going to be really , right now I’m just focused on selling this last hundred before Christmas.”

You have a chance to buy one of her books at her pop-up shop this Saturday at Atelier located at 221 B Independence in Cape Girardeau from 10 to 4 p.m.
