2018 February Monthly Calendar Doodles - Back to My Roots + process video

Plan With Me: February Monthly Calendar Doodles (+Video)

Monthly Calendar Doodles February just seems ‘doodle-y’ to me. With all the hearts and candy and the flowers and the hearts (oh wait, I said that). It just seems like it needs some extra swirls and flourishes. Is it me? It must be just me. All of those things were the inspiration for my monthly calendar doodles. From the font I used in February to the banner and the leaves floating across the page. New Video Format – Created to Provide Inspiration for You Yay or Nay? I do have to say that I really love the format of the […]

January Review: Hello February (What’s Changing & Staying) + Video

Hello February – Bullet Journal Changes (and content!) Wasn’t it just the Christmas season and we were all anticipating the upcoming new year and making incredible plans for 2018? I’m pretty sure that was yesterday. But instead, my January weekly spreads are almost filled and my calendar called for me to start working towards February.

2018: Bullet Journal Plan with Me January & December Wrap-Up

January 2018 Planner Walk-Through Planners rejoice the time has come for New Year Bullet Journal Planning! This is like the Christmas for planners. But most planners I know get planner items for Christmas. It’s a whole thing. There are a lot of bullet journalists who are moving into a new notebook at the start of a new year. Alas, I look longingly at the new notebooks lovingly set aside for such a momentous occasion and know that I will be continuing in my current notebook for another two months. I did not let this dissuade me from planning out 2018 […]

November Plans – Focus on Simplicity and Gratitude

November Journaling Focus Simplicity and Gratitude After the fun holiday of Halloween comes a period of anticipation. It feels like there is almost an electric quality in the air – a magic that only comes with the holidays. With that comes the flurry of activity, the parties, the traveling, the family gatherings, the traditions, the end of year hustle that is born around the end of October and dies after New Year’s day. During the first two weeks of November, there is almost a calm before the storm. For me, the holidays become overwhelming. So this is why I chose to […]
