March in my Bullet Journal 

Seems like the months are flying by! I am set up for march in my bullet journal which is still being held in my markings notebook from staples. 

Since last month I didn’t have a tracker, I wanted to return to it but from a different perspective. I used the tracker printables from decade thirty which can be found on her etsy. 

I also decided to change how my monthly is setup since I use my happy planner as a monthly and weekly planner. 

I also included a videos idea brain dump and that was basically it. 


I do plan on showing february and march flip threw together on my youtube channel since February was a short month.  I enjoy watching recaps of people’s planners and bullet journals,  do you? 

Stay blessed!

January bullet journal recap 

January was filled with so much bad moments but despite the sad and bad parts, I tried to document my days as best I could. I got sick with the flu as well with in turn made my habit tracker become a complete bust that I am just not going to bother with it at all in February. Here is the link to the video if you wish to see the January recap explained more further. 

I did add a this year I will page that I didn’t have when I first set up my 2017 bullet journal.

My January was not filled with many memories…

My failed habit tracker.

Week 1 summary page.

Week 2 summary page 

Week 3 Summary page 

Week 4 summary page.

I am enjoying using the stickers from the happy planner stickers books as part of my summary pages.

Pretty much, my dailies are very minimalistic. I love seeing everyone’s fancy lettering and doodles in their bullet journals but my approach is basic and works for me. I learned that this is the route I rather take then to compare my bullet journal to others and wanting the picture perfect bujo. I love my bullet journal and as a daily planner it’s perfect for my simple stay at home mom life and memory keeping in my own way. 

Hope you enjoyed the photos and that you can check out the video on my youtube channel to see it explained further. 

Stay blessed.

Ready for 2017

I have set up my bullet journal for 2017. I love the bullet journal system because it is what works best for me. This time around I’m using the markings spiral three section notebook.  

I love the sections and  how  each section is designated with the different kind of paper.  First section is lined,  second is graph and the last one is plain which is perfect to glue in things and printable found online (that’s what I’ll use it for). 

Below you will see how I set up the first section which is lined. 

Two pages front and back for the index of important pages. 

Blog ideas based on months and seasons and my goals for the year. 

Above is the page to introduce January

This time around I wanted a memories section to jot the good things that happened because I’ve never done it and want to be able to look back at the good things in life.  Then,  I did the running monthly which is the typical way to keep track of things etc in the bullet journal system. 

Next,  I decided to break down my habits by weeks for the month so it won’t feel so overwhelming to me because I am terrible at keeping track of anything. 

This time after much experimenting this is how I set up my weekly overview since I will be using my recollections planner as a weekly planner,  I didn’t feel it was necessary to do another weekly in here and waste space.  

I will be doing daily planning in this bullet journal. 

In the second section,  since it’s a grid it’s perfect for the trackers.  So I’m doing a yearly summary trackers of my youtube posts which will be in red and my blog posts which will be in blue.

I’ve been wanting to try a year in pixels and thought it was the perfect time to start.  You basically color code your mood and track it.  If you deal with mental health issues like me, I recommend this to help know the highs and lows of your life. 

I also want to see my menstrual in a year based view.  It’s just easier to view and know when the dot will be visiting other than having the app on my phone. 

The last thing I will be tracking is my Township game that I play religiously on my phone.  I love this game and it’s basically the best pass time and also very fun since I get to chat with the players on my team and get challenged to complete tasks etc. I like to track the score we made together in regattas and how many tasks out of the 15 I completed. 

I still have a few pages to set up but once I am done I will share the rest on my youtube channel. 

Thanks for checking out how I set up my bullet journal so far.

Stay blessed ❤️

 

My December Bullet Journal

My Decembwp-image-209054782jpg.jpger is all set up and ready to go. I am so glad that I got it out the way while binge watching the Gilmore Girls on netflix (I will talk about this in another post, I promise). So Drawing from many inspirational photos from the bullet journal junkies Facebook group, I gathered up some of em that I had saved in a BUJO photos folder in my phone, which comes in handy A LOT. I like to get inspiration and not copy to the exact T how most people do their layouts. Still trying to find my own groove but also loving how it all worked out for me this month. The photos are below and I am thrilled with how great the stickers turned out in this layout that I found at Michael’s. I even started to pre-game 2017 even though I do have a recollections coiled planner but I will still need my bullet journal for daily to do’s and to also brain dump and keep trackers in.

Hope you enjoy the photo’s below of my December pages.

Soon you’ll see a December bullet journal video on my YOUTUBE channel for you to watch and enjoy.

Stay Blessed.

 

Black Friday fun

Today was black Friday and the mister needed to make a run to best buy which is a first for us to ever go to stores on black Friday.  So after spending almost two hours in there he asked if I wanted to go to Michael’s and of course I so wanted to go.  

At Michael’s it was empty and it was effortless to go in swiftly and get the recollections spiral bound planner that was just $9.99.

I also picked up the yearly inserts for my Websters color crush and these adorable page flags that I found in a new section of planner goodies.  

Let’s just say it was a successful black Friday for me. 

Did you score new or more planner goodies at any of the black Friday deals? 

Stay blessed 

I couldn’t resist. . . 

I had purchased a beautiful Websters color crush planner from joanns in the spring of this year 2016. It matched me perfectly, so blissfully I stored it away to be used in 2017 but this month,  I couldn’t resist pulling it off my shelf and set it up. 

I know,  I love my precious Filofax domino but it just wasn’t screaming to me as much as my Websters color crush.  
So here is below.

I printed the year at a glance from pengems.com that is free. 

I love this cute Lil printable I found on pinterest and glued it on to this paper from a recollections paper pad I recently hauled. I’m a coffee junkie and this was beyond fitting and combined well with the planner. 

The remaining months of this year  inserts  from  the  1407 planner. 

Some of my tabs I made that are purple and  baby  blue with  bows on  them. 

Kept the  inserts  from  Websters  pages. I removed the weeklies because I want to purchase some just don’t know from where yet.  

Left the  list that  came  with the  planner and placed my color coding stickers into the slot to always  have  on  hand. 

I love the colors and I’m excited to continue sharing my planners with you via here and my youtube channel. 

Stay blessed. 

My everyday bullet journal- November 


I love the bullet journal. i love the simplicity in it and how creative you can be. i also love the minimalistic part of it. this month I decided to do it more on the minimalistic side. 

I did not put a tracker this month because it’s in my filofax which I will post a flip thru via my youtube channel later on. this bullet journal is mainly just to jot notes & daily to dos. There’s no weekly setup in here & no fancy lettering, just simple and straightforward which is just the basics. 

Sometimes you don’t need anything fancy, some  times just going simple and going back to basics is what we need in order to make it work. Planning should be something that works for you. Just because others are about tracking this or that and lettering every thing and doodles doesn’t mean you have to do it too.

Hope this inspires you to try a minimalist bullet journal and see if it works for you. 

Below are the photos of my November bullet journal. 

God bless.
