Plan With Me: April 2020 Bullet Journal Setup

Hello blogosphere! I’ve been really active lately on the blog, but I haven’t had the chance to showcase my April bullet journal spreads. My bullet journal theme for this month is water droplets and umbrellas.

I was inspired to choose this because it has been particularly rainy this past week, which is unusual for where I live. Typically, rainy days are my favorite; what’s better than captivating storm clouds and curling up to read a book? However, as I’ve been in quarantine for more than three weeks now, rainy weather is more dreary than dreamy.

Supplies

  • Bullet Journal: Paperage Dotted Journal

  • Washi tape: Typo

Cover Page

Here is my cover page! I doodled a couple of umbrellas and water droplets surrounding the cover page to tie in the theme. I used Crayola Markers to color them in. I wrote the quote “the storm will pass” to remind myself that even when times are tough or life is dull, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. ❤︎

Monthly Calendar

The next spread is my monthly calendar, which is a quick glimpse into the month of April. I haven’t filled it out yet, but that’s because I prefer to keep my spreads plain when posting them on social media, to protect my privacy and keep a minimalist look.

Trackers

I honestly really love how this spread turned out! I think that the wash tape tied in really well to the theme. The tracker on the left is a writing goals sheet for writing contest NaNoWriMo. My final word count goal is 18,000 words. Although I am much further along than displayed in this image, I decided to keep it blank! The next tracker is my exercise/running tracker. With quarantine, my goal is to work out at least six days a week.

Weekly Spread

Lastly, I have my daily spread for the week of April 6th-12th. I kept a minimalistic style with bubble letters for the date. Honestly, I’m really happy with how this spread turned out! 😀

Next is mymonthly log. I did a huge calligrahy piece of the word “May” and think it turned out really cool! I used both my tombow dual brush pens and crayola supertips to create this blending affect. I used my zebra midliners and white gelly roll pen to finish it off and  added some black and grey shadows to make it pop!

This is my mood tracker and reading tracker! I decided to make my mood tracker simple and just drew in some plain square boxes. But formy reading tracker, I drew a big palm tree in the middle and put in a little box to show my reading goals for that month.

And lastly, here is my first weekly spread. The only day that is filled in is Sunday, which is unusual because usually everything in my bullet journal is completely filled out! On the bottom right-hand corner I have an events section and a small palm tree doodle.

Greetings bookish friends! Today I will be showing you my bullet journal plan with me for April! I decided to do blue butterflies and sparkles this month.

Here’s my cover page! Since the butterflies are so intricate and detailed, I only drew a couple. On the left side, I have a quote. I wasn’t sure if I could pull of this theme well, but it ended up looking great! 🦋✨

This is my monthly calendar page! I doodled a couple of butterflies around and it and did some calligraphy with a little bit of blending on the upper right page. I accidentally drew some extra yellow dots, so I just wrote the days of May, the next month.

Next I have my mood tracker! I made a giant butterfly and am going to color it in this month. Each section of the butterfly represents a different day. On the right page is a chart to track how much reading, writing, and blogging I’m doing in April. I want to try to read 7 books this month, write 30 pages, and make 4 blog posts.

And lastly, here is my weekly spread! I wanted to keep it simple but also added some butterflies and sparkles for some detail.
