Plan With Me: April 2019 Bullet Journal Setup

IMG-5370

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.

Plan With Me: 2019 Bullet Journal Set​up

img-3211

It’s finally 2019!

Yay yay yay! I am super excited to share with you some of my bullet journal spreads for 2019! I got the Scribbles That Matter Pro for Christmas and so far, I am really liking it. It is a major improvement from my old bullet journal, as the pages are much thicker. I apologize for this post coming out so late, there’s just been a lot on my mind lately. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

For the cover page, I made 2019 in a black marker using the Tombow Fudenoske Brush Pen and adding some white highlights using the Sakura Gelly Roll White Pen. On the next page, my yearly view spread, I made a calculated risk to cover the entire page in black marker and use the white pen over it. I am happy with how both these pages turned out!

My future log is looking pretty blank now, but soon it will be filled up! This is a pretty easy and simple spread, and although it is tedious to write in all the dates for the months, anyone can do it. If you are trying to recreate this spread or something similar, I recommend stretching this spread out into two pages so you have more space to write.

Next, I have my New Years resolutions. Usually, I don’t set goals for the New Year, but I wanted to push myself to improve without it being stressful or me slacking off. So, I quickly made a spread for this! I think that writing it down on my bullet journal will be more effective than just saying I’ll do my resolutions because it will constantly remind me about my goals. Sometimes, we forget about our goals for the New Year, and they slowly fade away until we can’t even remember what they were in the first place. But this year, I promise that won’t happen!

And lastly, I have an almost blank spread where I can write down all the awesome memories and experiences that happen in 2019. Then, when 2020 pops out of nowhere, I can take a moment to sit down and reflect on the year that just flew by.

Plan With Me: December 2018 (Holly, Stars, and Candy-Canes)

IMG-2678.JPG

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.

Supplies

  • Calligraphy – Tombow Fudenoske Soft Tip Brush Pen (Black)
  • Markers – Crayola Supertips 100 Count
  • Notebook – Minimalism Art Dotted A5
  • Pen
  • 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.
