I see this question posed often in the bullet journal community, and almost always the answer is: it depends on you. With February mercifully behind me, I decided to keep my entire March monthly spread uniform using the same spread each week while leaving some room to decorate.
Now that we’re also quickly approaching the middle of March (seriously, how is it going by so quickly??), I need to start thinking about setting April up as well as getting my next bullet journal.
Hey everyone, I’m back! Sorry for my absence; school really kicked my ass this quarter. It was tough but I made it.
Today I want to talk to you about my new cover by Popov Leather. I bought this cover in January and received it mid-February. I chose the Black Horween Chromexcel leather with cream stitching and the large pen loop option add on.
I just got home from a weekend spent in the country with friends as we worked on several creative projects. On the long drive home I thought about how differently people use their bullet journals.
I’ve seen many beautiful spreads created using a black pen to make complex-looking, decorative, gorgeous florals and perfect ruled boxes. I’ve seen vertical spreads, horizontal spreads, and spreads in the shape of a triangle or parallelogram. I even recently saw someone create a habit tracker in the form of a stove. Talk about creative!
Last Friday night, after a very busy and tiring week I sat down at my kitchen table with my bujo and decided to do some de-stressing and challenged myself to come up with as many headers as I could to fill one page of my notebook using only three of my Dear Lily Designs stencils.
A few years ago, I bought this awesome whiteboard calendar at Walmart and glued earth magnets to each corner so I could put it on my fridge. I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could come up with a menu for an entire month, each month. I was tired of wasting money on food that had spoiled because I’d forgotten about it.
This is a comparison of the Original Leuchtturm1917 Notebook and Official Bullet Journal Leuchtturm1917 Notebook (henceforth referred to as Original and Official). The Official notebook as I understand it was a collaboration between Ryder Carroll and Leuchtturm. These are my personal opinions about products that I purchased with my own money. This is not a sponsored post.
So I thought I’d kick off this entry with this statement someone said to me recently. I often read this exact phrase when I’m browsing Instagram or when reading the comments left on bullet journal videos on YouTube.
In a recent entry I talked about simplicity and why it works the best for me. Today I want to share with you how I brainstorm ideas for the layouts in my bullet journal now that I am mostly working with weekly spreads. This is new to me since I’ve mostly used daily spreads when I was using a smaller size notebook. Continue reading “My return to weekly spreads”
I’m sure most everyone knows (or has heard) that Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook wears the same shirt every day. Not literally the same shirt, but when he opens his closet, he has dozens of the same color and style shirt hanging there, and says that the reason for this is that it is one less decision he has to make.
