JUNE (!!??!!) // BUJO SETUP

So it’s June. Should I react? Yes. Have I done extremely dramatic reactions in previous times? Most definitely. So today I shan’t. (Is “shan’t” actually a thing or just some kind of “Southern Belle” creation where saying two words was something unheard of?)

Because now that it as turning into a summer month (Can you believe–I forgot I wasn’t reacting. Nevermind.) and the sad leaf-less winter and spring have passed us by, my theme is leaves. Yes, leaves. Kind of boring sounding, but I quite enjoy the monochromatic-ness of it. Perhaps leaves hold more than just chlorophyll. Maybe the entertain a peacefulness as well.

Wow. Science and poetry and we haven’t even seen a picture yet.

I had to move to a new journal for June through December (at least I hope for it to go until December), so the leaf side was on the first page. I added my information on the right in case I happen to leave this in the stall of the bathroom of a gas station in rural Mississippi sometime soon.

This is a very easy theme to do if you’re just starting into bullet journaling. I picked three or four greens (I used the Tombow Dual brush pens) and used the darkest to draw spread-out swirls, and then drew leaves connected and floating around it. So, I had a bit of a faux pas with the font on this page–we were deep within our health book by Michael Pollen and I ended up writing “May” instead of June. So I used a green paint swatch (you know, the one you have laying around) and remedied that mistake.

The calendar page directly follows the same pattern and style (though I did actually remember to write “June”). I filled in the blank spot at the bottom with and abundance of leaves. I had to already fill in just some of the things happing this month. Does anybody else have a June that always just fills up?

For the first weekly log I toned down the amount of leaves and when a bit more simple with one weekly log on each side.

*note* I did make a habit tracker, the photo just escaped me. It is the normal grid layout. (:

AHAH This left page is my feeble efforts at covering my mistakes. I went to do another weekly log but then I realized I had just done one so.. I tried to disguise it and this is what happened. XD On the bottom of the page I put a little box I named “going into July” for random thought or to dos I need to move to the next month.

On the right I made my normal income tracker with various boxes and categories.

I did the exact same weekly log for the third and fourth weeks in June as before. I enjoy having two weeks in one to see a bigger layout of things.

I always have those random two or three days that I have to carry over to the next page, and so here we have the 29th and 30th on the left. Below that I have some to dos and goals boxes and a quote below.

On the right I decided to start “Lyrics of (month)”. Just any lyrics I come up with or ones I remember from other songs that make me thing of the things that happened or are happening in the month. I am excited to read it at the end of June!

And this is where we left it! I hope y’all enjoyed this setup, and stay tuned for *quite* the post coming soon that has to do with mail. Have a lovely day!

Do the leaves look like a intimidating progress to you? Is your June busy? What is your favorite month? Favorite Summer dessert?

Spring Favorites 2021

Hello all!

I was recently making a list of favorite things for this season (I usually do this every season) and I thought I would turn it into a post I could share!

I love switching things around for each season–weather that’s switching my room, what I wear or what type of books I read or letter art that I do– I love changing things up a bit. For the Springtime this year I’ve been really enjoying florals and green (and on another note, my friend Alex pointed out in a letter that ‘green’ should really be spelled ‘grean.’ Just sayin’, it DOES make sense) and brown and postcards, to name a few.

The first things I wanted to mention were home and location magazines. My Mom recently bought a big stack of magazines from last year and I love them! The Veranda magazine has to be my favorite, but The English Home comes as a close second. The beautiful castles and quaint countryside homes and flower fields and beautifully furnished homes makes me giddy.

I have also really been enjoying decorating with vintage/vintage patterned teacups. Also, I fantasize about having enough cups to fill a small cupboard one day when I’m married with a home. Perhaps a start of a hope chest? (:

I am decidedly a plantaholic. I am sitting in my room at the moment and I look up and gaze upon 11 plants. Is that too many? Probably. But they’re my favorite things in my room, haha!

THESE postcards have been in my regular rotation lately. I love the size and the patterns. Where you write the actual letter, there are no lines or anything, so you have the freedom to write wherever you want and do a fun address if you wish. I just love them.

This next one is a bit random, but the Pilot G-2 pen is the best! I use it all of the time–school, letters, journals–and it hasn’t stopped! Plus, very affordable, which is a plus, indeed.

So these earrings are my absolute favorite. Thank you. Next…

Janette Oke books are in the reading currently. She is a great writer and she writes very interesting, sweet stories. I am currently reading the Prairie Legacy series, but “A Measure of the Heart” has to be my favorite out of all of her books. I want to read “When Calls the Heart,” too, because we loved that show!

My Mom recently passed along this excellent bible commentary that my Grandfather passed to her many years back. It has been well loved, but all of the good words are still there! It goes chapter-by-chapter explaining what happens in each one and references other chapters as well. It’s very short, and I have been enjoying it while doing the McCheyne reading plan (to read the bible in a year–almost half way done!).

And lastly, a quick shoutout to these delightful twisty hair ties that are amazing! I have fairly thick, longer hair that is wavy/curly and the regular hair ties slip out, usually within a few minutes, but these will keep my hair up all day. I must recommend.

I hope y’all enjoyed viewing my favorites for this season! Please be sure to let me know if you enjoy this kind of post–I do! I would LOVE to hear your favorites for spring as well, and let me know if you would like to see this same kind of post but with a different category. I would love to hear your ideas! ❤

What are your favorites for Spring? Do you enjoy magazines? What are your Summer plans? Do you like plants?

Better Late Than Never, Right? // May BUJO Setup

*coughs* Umm.. It’s May. The 6th.

I definitely realized this. It’s fine. I planned to post this late. Yeah, exactly. MmHMM. Definitely.

Well, unfortunately I can’t go back and slow time down, so here we are. Ah, May! I am taken aback. School is almost over. Summer is near. *sweats*

Today I thought I would share the photos of my May setup. It is a different art style than usual, but I am really enjoying it thus far!

It’s a very abstract, colorful and modern look. The different colors and patterns are really fun and cheerful–and easy to do. It’s kind like a brainless art style, just throw random shapes and colors down. I decided to go with a fairly simple font, since everything else was already very busy.

I just went with a classic calendar setup, nothing too fancy. I included the same patters as before.

The next page is a gathering of “Goals,” “To Do,” and “Ideas.” I wanted the pages to look cohesive, to I connected the art across the pages. On the right I have three graphs for different labels of habit trackers. My habits I wish to continue building are 1. Reading my bible daily, 2. Drinking at least 73 oz. of water, 3. Keeping my room tidy.

On these pages I have four weeks worth of weekly logs on one page. I went for a messier look with the lines and I think it goes well with the different patterns throughout this spread.

The page on the left is my income tracker for this month. I usually group the different categories in =to that-categories. And then I like to add up and determine where the best income was, how I can stay more on budget, etcetera. I really like this tracker.

On the right, I hav etc last three days of the weekly logs up at the top, and the rest of the page has my Spring100 mile log.

The next page here has the incoming and outgoing mail tracker. I continued that previous pattern of shapes and colors onto this page.

Th right page has a little note section for my “End of School Completions.” I always love going back to these journals and reading all that I did that year. It’s crazy what you can forget!

The next page is a list for things I would like to accomplish in my Junior year (which I approaching WAY to fast!). The next page is just thoughts from the month. I always enjoy going back and reading these.

Thank you for reading! I hope you all are having a wonderful start to May!

Also, I have finally updated my About Audrey Kate page. If y’all would like a more up-to-date version about me, click here. (:

What are you looking forward to this month? Do you like these kinds of abstract patterns? What is your favorite color scheme? Any fun plans this month?
