Greetings bookish friends!
I hope everyone has had a great Thanksgiving and a restful break.I haven’t been very active lately, but I was able to come out with this post a couple days before the start of December to hopefully give you guys some inspiration.
This month’s theme is Christmas, featuring holly leaves, candy canes and stars. I have to admit that the holly were a little more difficult to doodle than I originally anticipated, but they ended up looking really good! Please let me know in the comments if you would like to see a holly leaf tutorial.
- Calligraphy – Tombow Fudenoske Soft Tip Brush Pen (Black)
- Markers – Crayola Supertips 100 Count
- Notebook – Minimalism Art Dotted A5
- Pencil (for sketching out doodles)
I have ben using the Tomboy Fudenoske Brush Pen as a calligraphy pen since November and have really been liking them. I know that there is a lot of hype around the Tombow Dual Brush Pens, which are awesome, but I think these pens are easier to control, and turn out smoother. They come in a two pack, both black, either hard or soft tip. I personally prefer the soft tip, because even if it is more difficultPlease note that these are in no way sponsored.
First is my cover page! I think it turned out really nice. On the right, I decided to add a little yellow box similar to the monthly log just squished up. In months past, I haven’t done this, but I”m glad I tried it out. To the left I have a cute Christmas quote.
Next is my standard monthly log with some cute Christmas doodles. On the side, I have a social media growth tracker. I like to have it to know how much my blog and Instagram is growing, but I try not to pay too much attention to it because constantly tracking social media can be unhealthy. But still, thank you so much for 100 followers on Instagram.
Here are my trackers! To the left of the spread I have my money tracker. Unfortunately, some excess pen marks got on there and there is some ghosting, which is my ultimate bullet journal pet-peeve. Despite this, I am happy with the way that it turned out. Tracking your expenses is super important, especially during to holiday season.
To the right I have an empty half a page for writing down blog post ideas. November is always a super busy month for me, but in December I’m going to try to write more blog posts. And of course, there is also a space for me to write down books on my TBR and on my Christmas wishlist.
And finally, I have my weekly spread! This weekly spread is defiantly not the “minimalistic” theme that is so popular is bullet journaling, but nevertheless, I liked the way it turned out. Of course, I have my Events sidebar off to the right of the spread for tracking events and dates.
And I think that about wraps up my bullet journal Plan With Me for December 2018! I hope you enjoyed!
