November Mid-Month Habit and Mood Tracker Check

November Mid-Month Habit Check + Mood Tracker Update When I sat down to start writing this post, I realized this is the monthly insight into my life. There are so many emotions tied to habits, so many excuses, so many passions. I can’t write about my habit tracker {and now added mood tracker} without being a little more personal. Of all the things I have in my bullet journal, my habits and my moods show the most insight into my life on a day-to-day basis. So here is a monthly update on my Habit and Mood Trackers. November 2017 – […]

A Deliciously Simple Weekly Bullet Journal Spread Vertical Open Squared Weekly Bullet Journal Planner Layout with large center margins

A Deliciously Simple Layout

A Deliciously Simple Layout – Minimal Spread The week of Thanksgiving. We are deep in fall and this week can sometimes be rather hectic depending on what your holiday plans are. If you are traveling long distances or you are hosting this festive holiday, a big, elaborate weekly plan is probably not going to happen.  What you need is a minimal spread. Then add to it only the essentials. A weekly tracker, shopping list, sleeping arrangements, travel itinerary. Weeks like this need some versatility, and minimal designs add a lot of versatility. Weekly Plans For me, this week is low-key. […]

Life is Happening Now – Layout Your Planner To Keep it on Track

Life is Passing by so Fast! Keep Life on Track. Ah yes. November is zipping by. November is great here in the states because the focus seems to shift to gratitude. A whole month dedicated to gratitude. And food.  But it really is a nice time to reflect on the year gone by. One thing I am thankful for – my planner. It keeps my life on track because I don’t just watch it pass by. I may seem like I have my nose stuck in my planner all day; but in reality, I plan at night when the kids […]

Give your Goals & Plans a Defined Timeline

End of Year Planning – Don’t Leave it to the Last Minute Start Early on Next Year’s Planning with a Super Simple Planning Spread – Give Your Goals & Plans a Defined Timeline. November seems like a great time to set some goals for next year. Specifically the first two weeks of November. Why then? Well because Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving or other holidays have not come yet. Visiting family will not arrive yet, and if you are vacationing or leaving, you have some time before the packing begins. There is a certain quiet about this time […]

Fall weekly log/layout with wooden signs, apple collection bucket and ripe apples for the picking!

Wooden Directional Sign & Apple Orchard Weekly Layout

Wooden signs, apple collecting basket, give me a Pumpkin Spiced flavored drink because IT’s FALL and I can’t get enough of it. Feeling inspired by my apples and apple pie on my October monthly welcome page in my bullet journal, I decided to continue the theme on my weekly log with an apple orchard feel.  Directional signs point you towards each day of the week. A tasty apple is a good place to record your meal plans. This apple orchard weekly layout is sure to provide plenty of space for accomplishing your fall bucket list. The apple basket acts as a […]

Mid-Month Habit Tracker Check-up

Habits. Sorry for the dirty word. Mid-Month Habit Tracker Checkup

Habits. Sorry for the dirty word. It can even be a dirty word when you are doing something clean like straightening up or doing the dishes. (Please pardon the d-word). Here is a mid-month check-up of my September habit tracker. It is much improved from last month or the month before. In the past, I would create habit trackers and never complete them. But that’s the thing, I wanted to complete them. Eventually, I would fill out a couple boxes on a habit tracker, but nothing real. This month, I decided to just track a few habits. Guess what?! “Habits” is not such […]

Pirate Map Weekly Layout – ‘X’ Marks the Weekend!

We celebrate a random holiday. We started celebrating it before we found out that Krispy Kremes celebrates it too – with free doughnuts. Now we just celebrate more. Pirate costumes and swarthy accents are a staple at our house. I have to admit, the kids have now outgrown their pirate costumes, so we need to get our act together and get new costumes, because… International Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19! I had to make my week pirate themed in my bullet journal in honor of such a great day. Bring on the silly puns, the tri-corn hats, […]

Random thoughts and great ideas bullet journal spread idea tracker brain dump

Random Thoughts and Great Ideas Collection

If you are like me, there are a lot of thoughts bouncing around inside your head all day long. Some of them are pretty creative. Few are deep. Some are reflections of the past or regrets. Others are just random, funny thoughts. I wouldn’t mind keeping those around once in a while to distract from the crazy of life. Most thoughts are fleeting, but others I would like to develop and see if something bigger will come of these individual thought nuggets. I had never organized these golden idea droplets into a common space, they were all haphazardly written in […]

Autumn leaves sketch for the weekly planner spread in my bullet journal. I can't get enough of September and Fall.

September Week 1: Autumn Colors and Fall Leaves

Keeping with the monthly theme of “Heck Yes! It’s Fall!” September’s 1st week has an autumn look with the changing colors on the leaves. See the September monthly spread here I knew when drawing this out, that the leaves were small and wouldn’t hold a lot of tasks. Maybe I’ll just take the week off and relax. Probably not, but here in the US, Monday the 4th is a holiday, so I will just take one day instead. I am a ‘sketch it out before painting’ kind of girl. So to create this weekly log, I found a simple leaf […]

Arrow Doodle Vertical Weekly Layout

Arrows in my weekly layout remind me to keep my focus and aim true to my goals In addition to the reminder the arrows served, I loved doodling the arrows. I never realized the sheer variety of arrow types! There are so many things around us to distract our attention from what we really want to do with our lives. I think arrows may become this needs to become a ‘thing’ in my life as a daily reminder to aim true and fly straight towards my goals. Believe it or not, the quote “The art of writing is the art […]
