Bullet Journal | December 2020

Hello and welcome! Today I am going to be sharing my very limited layouts for December. I decided not to add my weeklies to this post since they have no changed at all, but I wanted to share all of my other items. Also, this being the last month of the year. I also started to get ready for January so I was really focused on that. Oops, sorry December. I am also changing quite a few things for next year so that should be a fun post come January.


Supplies

  • Random Wrapping Paper
  • Cutouts from Michael’s craft store – No longer available
  • Sharpie Pen
  • A5 Garden Slither Dot Grid Notebook from Olive and Archer
  • Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller
  • The Sacred Self-Care Oracle
  • Craft paper giftag

This first page I really consolidated this month. I have the title page of sorts right next to my monthly oracle card. On the title page I glued down some wrapping paper with trees and deer that were muted colors. I then added a craft paper tag and stamped December 2020 on it. I felt it fit the theme of the month. This months card is family and has two women hugging one another. I felt like family is something I am really missing this time of year. I then added a drawing of a lady and a green tag to kind of pull the tag in from the other page.

My second picture here at the forefront has my TBR and goals on the left page. I have kept this the same, I just decided to add some of the muted tree and deer wrapping paper to the top part of the page to add a it of texture and pull the theme together. On the right page I added books read, also stamped like all of the titles this month, at the top and doodled shelves to glue pictures of the books I read during the month.

If you want to know what my weekly spreads look like you can see them on my post called, Bullet Journal | November 2020.

Bullet Journal | March 2020

Bullet Journal

Hello and welcome to another month and another look into my bullet journal! I am very excited about this months spreads because they are all inspired by my new adventure I am starting this month. I go into a bit of detail in my post Let’s Talk| A New Language Adventure. So, I wanted to really inspire myself because I feel like it takes a month to make a habit, so I wanted to make sure I stayed inspired and reminded to take even a few moments a day to study. Now, here are the spreads I am using this month!

So, this month I really wanted to create a calendar to refer back to because I feel like I was missing it mainly because when I needed to make appointments and such it was a bit of a pain flipping through a bunch fo pages. This way, I can quickly look at one page and have all of the information I need and I can add it to my weekly spreads later. I decided I wanted to add some Korean to my monthly spread, so I labeled the month and days in Korean. Since I am just starting to learn I added the pronunciation at the bottom oof each day. I am really in love with how it came out.

I once again am adding my tried and true reading log and tbr page I have been using for months and I absolutely adore. So, since I use it every month I am going to keep it. I am going too put a picture of a completed spread below.

Here is a completed version of my book/reading tracking tbr page.

I decided to add my blog notes and posts into my bullet journal. I still have a separate planner for it, but sometimes I just like to have everything in once place instead of just spread around when I am writing on the go. I feel like that is why I have been “behind” on my blogging this month. So, this is my way of trying to fix it. I also decided to put a picture from Korea on the right hand side.

So, I decided to mix up my weekly spreads this month. On the left I decided to make my spread two columns instead of just one. I feel like I just wanted to change it up a bit and I wanted to add a bit of color. I decided on this color because it was a matches the color in the picture on the previous page.

So, this is the last new page of my bullet journal this month. I decided to have a bit of a tracker for my. Korean study. Since I am using the Talk to Me in Korean series I wanted to make sure I marked my progress and everything like that. I know I am personally motivated by seeing this type of progress.

So, there is my bullet journal for the month of March. I am really excited to use it.


What theme are you using in your bujo this month?

Bullet Journal | February 2020

Bullet Journal

Hello and welcome to another bujo post! I know last week I shared my unboxing of the most recently Tombow VIP Club, Unboxing | Tombow VIP Club January 2020, sadly I already had my February spreads all set up already. But, I am planning to use all of those items in next months spreads and really try and add more color. This month I have gone really simple and to the point because I have so much going on, I don’t really want distractions. If I do need more spreads, I will add them at a later date. As for now, here is my February bujo!


So here is my dash page! The flower art was created by Shayda Campbell, I am really loving the floral lately and her stuff is all about bringing in the natural feelings. On the right I wanted a quote and I did some abstract art with some cut up black paper I had laying around. I decided to add a quote I came across online and add a little doodle.

Here is my must have spread, since I starting using this I have just fallen in love with it. I track the books I have read and when I have read them. I color code the blocks with the book.  It is a little hard to explain so I am going to add my January completed one below so you can see.

So, on the book tracker. page you can see on the right I have a book title highlighted in a particular color. I then block off a square or squares for the dates that I read that book. An example would be a Midsummers Night’s Dream in a light purple color. I look at the chart and I can see that I read it from the 12th to the 16th of January. On the right I have my tbr and then I add extra books if I read them.

Here is my super simple and the same as I have been weekly layouts. These were originally inspired by Elizabeth Turnbull months and months ago and they just work for me. In my eyes, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. So I am keeping these the same.

I know this month is super short and simple, but like I said, I don’t really want to add to much this month because I have so much going on I don’t want to be distracted by anything. But, I am loving the ones I have created.

Bullet Journal | December 2018

Recs

Last month I sadly did not get around to sharing my bullet journal, but I am excited to get to share this months with you. I am using some of my tried and true spreads as well as trying a few new ones as well.

This month I wanted simple layouts, apart from the bonus one below, and limit my colors to pale relaxing colors. I am not sure why, but I was really craving cool tones.

Here is my main introduction page into December. I thought it would be fun to do a warm fire place because during the month of December that is the only place I want to sit, right in front of it. I also wanted to put a few simple decorations. I never go all out with decoration in real life so why would I in my bullet journal?

This is my calendar page. This is where I write all the appointments, meetings, and due dates for various things. When I took this picture it was blank, it is already totally filled. It is funny how things come flying at you all at once. I loved the little lights so I added them to the side of the page. I didn’t color them in because I wanted the purple to be the star of this page. It is such a relaxing color.

So on the left hand side is my Monthly Overview, this is where I write down all my planned posts. I am happy to say that I have some fun posts coming up this month that I am excited to share with you. Mainly my favorite and least favorite books of 2018. I cannot believe it is already time to reflect on the year.

On the right side of the page is my December TBR. It may be a bit of a sneak peak, but oh well.

This is the layout I am going to be giving a try. I kinda got inspiration from BooksandLala on Youtube for this. On the right side I am going to assign a book a color and track the days I have read it on the left hand side. If all goes to plan there should be a fun cool toned rainbow on the left hand side to show when I started, read, and finished a book using the colors and code on the right side. I am curious to see if I keep up with this or not. Only time will tell.

This is my typical tracking pages I put in my bullet journal every month. The right page is where I write the titles of the books I read and then color them in. On the right I color in a block for each chapter I read. At this time I only added the books on my TBR, more will be added because I never stick to my TBR.

I am not sure if I have shared this before, but this is the weekly spread I use. While I give a majority of the room to my weekdays. I don’t combine Saturday and Sunday because then I end up waiting to do everything on Sunday. As you can see I also have a few stickers. I track the moon cycles in my bullet journal because I always love being aware of the moon and its cycles. I always have since I was a little girl. I also have assigned days to clean, write, and do laundry which are indicated by sticks. I also do a weekly weigh in that I keep track of in my bullet journal as well.

I hoped you have enjoyed the sneak peak into my bullet journal this month. I really enjoyed how this month turned out. It is clean and calm, just what I need and wanted.

Do you use a bullet journal? What theme are you using this month?
