Plan With Me: 2019 Bullet Journal Set​up + Back from my Hiatus!

img-3211


Greetings bookish friends!

I’m back from my random, super long blogging hiatus and back into full swing!

Although it is very late, here is my bullet journal set up 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: November 2018 (Donut theme)

image1

Greetings bookish friends! Today I will be sharing with you my bullet journal spreads for November. This month I will be doodling some donuts — yum! I love how this month turned out, but my pictures are unintentionally blurry — please ignore that! Sorry this post is a little bit late, but I hope it gives you some inspiration or ideas anyway. Enjoy!

Supplies I Used:

  • An A5 Dotted Bullet Journal
  • Crayola Supertips
  • Tombow Fudenosuke Calligraphy Brush Pen Soft Tip
  • A pen
  • A pencil
  • An eraser

I’ve currently been loving my new tombows! These are a really popular brush pen, and I can see why. The writing is smooth, doesn’t smudge and is easy to control.

Here is my front page with a cute donut quote to the left. I’m loving how this spread turned out, although I kind of went crazy with the donut doodles!

Next is my standard monthly log. To the left, I have a section for blog stats and Instagram stats.

This next spread is my money tracker, blog post ideas page, and books I’ve read section. Last month, I didn’t really fill out any of my trackers because I was kind of unmotivated to fill them out, but I’m really liking how my trackers are looking this month.

And lastly, here is my weekly spread! I decided to keep it simple with some donut doodles and boxes for dividing the days of the week.

Plan With Me: October 2018 (Pumpkin theme)

IMG_1552.jpg

Greetings bookish friends! October is just around the corner, so are my bullet journal spreads for the month of October. I’m really happy with how these turned out, and I’m thinking that this may be my new favorite theme! Autumn is my favorite season, and I love pumpkin pie! *Who doesn’t?*

I will also be posting this on my newly begun bookstagram/artstagram account. The username is @katiethatbookishgirl. Please help support this blog by giving it a follow!

Supplies:

  • Minimalism Art A5 Dotted Journal (Any dotted journal works)
  • Crayola Supertips (I have the 100 count, but most people use the 50 count)
  • A pen
  • A pencil
  • An eraser

If you want me to be honest, I am excited to change into a new bullet journal in 2019 because I’m finding that the pages in the Minimalism Art A5 Dotted Journal have a lot of ghosting. It might have just been that I colored in the pumpkins with my supertips too quick, or that I may need thicker pages for my next bullet journal.

Sorry if you see any marker bleeding through the pages!

First is my cover page/quote. Overall, I love how this spread turned out and think the quote fits nicely with the theme.

Next in my monthly log. I am also really happy with the end result and think it ties in with the theme. I have a little sidebar box on the left which is my social media growth tracker. It was inspired by Amanda Rach Lee (my favorite youtuber). If you aren’t already following her, go check her out she is amazing!

Here is my habit tracker and money tracker. (Also inspired by Amanda Rach Lee, by the way). Although filling out trackers can sometimes be boring, I think that I will put these to use. I also doodled a cute little pumpkin patch at the bottom of the page, which I absolutely love!

And lastly is my weekly spread. I decided to do a dutch door style spread and think it looks perfect! This was my first time trying this style of weekly spreads, and so far I’m really liking it. It’s very functional for me because I can look at my weekly events while having my to-do/homework list out. I will definitely be doing this spread more in the future.
