You'll Shoot Your Eye Out themed week in my Bullet Journal - Planning for the week before Christmas, handlettered & watercolor painted

December Week 4: Official Red Ryder Air Rifle – You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out

The Theme of the Theme! But Don’t Shoot Your Eye Out! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah the reason behind A Christmas Story movie – the Official Red Ryder carbon action two-hundred shot range model air rifle. How could I have A Christmas Story movie theme without paying homage to “you’ll shoot your eye out”?! I had a lot more included in the sketch – I had a quote from the original Red Ryder, but the drawing didn’t come out right, so I didn’t include it. Have you seen those gorgeous hand-lettered pieces of art where the text makes the shape of something (in this case, […]

December Week 1 - Fragile

December Week 2: Fragile

Fragile: It Must be Italian – Weekly Spread Probably the most iconic scenes from the movie, A Christmas Story: The Leg Lamp “It’s a Major Award”. Of course, my monthly theme from this movie needed a spread dedicated to this fragile mistress. I love how the wife is completely embarrassed. And how the demise of the lamp would be a source of family controversy for years to come. This spread was probably the most fun to draw and yet, the hardest. This Spread was Fragile in so Many Ways! I wanted a long, lean looking leg lamp but it got […]

December Weekly 1: It’s a Pink Nightmare

Fresh Start to the Month: Partial Week If you watched the December set-up video, (click here if you’d like to see it), you would have noticed that I start each month fresh. Meaning I might have a couple of weekly spreads with partial weeks as I start on the first day of the month for a weekly spread. This provides a clean break between months, even if that means I have 2-3 days on a spread. That’s the case for the first week of December. Instead of starting on Sunday in my weekly plans, I  also keep my weekends together. […]

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 […]

And like that…It’s November – 1st Week of November – Minimal for Function

And like that…It’s November. What in the world? It’s November! I just got used to writing 2017 as the year. We are in the thick of holiday season (or very near to the thick – is that a thing?) and I am definitely relying on my minimalistic weekly designs to guide me through this busy time of year.  I decided this month to start at the beginning of the month instead of half the week’s spread from October and the other half as November. So I ended up with a couple of half-week layouts. I had big plans for the start […]

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 […]
