Ready for Take Off: Lessons Learned – January Monthly

Lessons Learned from Bullet Journaling Every month I learn something new from bullet journaling. This month is no different. This month, one of the lessons learned from Bullet Journaling I’ve learned is that open boxes are fun. I did it in my January future log and continued the trend in my January Monthly Calendar. Not all boxes have to be perfect or closed off. The background art took up more room than I wanted to give at first. But then the colors just seemed so beautiful I couldn’t let them go. So I didn’t fight it and just let things meet where […]

2018 Future Log - Why Use a Future Log if you are late starting?

Why Use a Future Log – Even If It’s Late.

Happy New Year! Why Use a Future Log – even if you’re late starting I recorded many videos the middle of December – and didn’t have them all ready to go – some until this morning. I wanted to do it, but there was just something keeping me from completing it. Not sure if it was that little voice of doubt in the back of my head, if I didn’t have the right kind of music playing in the background, or if I simply wanted to watch some more of those good ‘ole classic Christmas movies.

Christmas Weekly - Snowflake Mandalas

December Week 5: Week 5: It’s Christmas!

December Weekly Plans – Week 5 It’s Christmas! Merry Christmas! This week is all about the big day. A little change-up for this week – I, of course, am continuing my theme from A Christmas Story featuring the Zeppelin and Fudge (wink) but I also added snowflakes for the days of the week. A Christmas Story takes place in Michigan – so there was always snow in every outdoor scene. I wanted a snow page and it just kind of morphed into snowflakes. If you watched my monthly planner video – I made a correlation I’ve never realized before (read […]

The Beautiful Whys of Planning

The Beautiful Why of Planning

Plan Your Life So You Live Beautifully – The Why of Planning Someone very near to me (who will remain unidentified) questioned why I plan. They didn’t see a point to practicing my handwriting and my lettering. They suggested that I get my priorities in order. Um… Isn’t that what I am doing when I am planning? This conversation devastated me, and probably took a month or longer to shake off. It was with someone who I expected to back me up and to understand me – no matter if they understood what I was doing. Their suggestion stated that they did […]

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 […]
