Well, Howdy-do, March! // Bullet Journal Setup

February-2

WHOOOAAAA, March’s almost here!?

Yay! This means Spring and new growth in the trees and flowers and warm (er) weather. Ahhh…

I always, the past two years, have done greenery in March. (you can see last year’s setup here. (; ) I love drawing plants and cactuses, so why not? (: I kept it only green with tan pots. I kept it very simple, I didn’t want too much detail or line art. I either did line art on the plant, or on the pot. I decided to go with rounded letters, and I made them rather sketchy. (I did some scripty writing as well, later)

I decided to go with a different approach to the calendar. My Mom likes to be able to see all of her Sundays lined up and Mondays, like a normal calendar. I tried it so that I could do it on hers. I actually quite like it! I had to test a lot of different layouts so that it would look even, but it worked! Do you like seeing your calendar like this, or does it matter? I can’t decide.

These next pages are my favorites! I love drawing the different plants.

My habit trackers I filled in all green, and I used my white Signo Broad gel pen for the lines. I drew some plants on the “ground”, but I didn’t fill the pots in for simplicity.

I did my goals and hopes for the month on the next page, and to level it out to the eye, I did some hanging plants. ❤ Do you have plants in your room?

I wanted to bring back my weekly spreads, they’re really helpful to me, to be able to see everything in a not-so-tiny place. I drew plants in the first box, then the weekdays on the rest.

I took a different plan for my monthly income this month. I normally do this, but I anted something a bit more useful and in-depth. It should help me look back at the expenses I had and what I made from teaching.

The next page is my letter tracker page. I lined some of the boxes, ad I left some line-less. I filled everything in with the white pen, though(:

I’ve been wanting to do a “dutch door” layout for awhile, so I did it for the second week spread. I like it! It’s happy. Where the 7th day ended I drew some plants to fill the space. Beside I did the “week’s events” and on the other side I did a C.S. Lewis quote,

“There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind”

IMG_0071IMG_0070

The next page has my “to do” and “reminders” on it. Nothing too fancy, but it shall work nicely.

I added a quote, “Show Up, be true, be kind, keep going,” for the last page, alongside some washi tape, for my last page.

I hope you all enjoyed! What’s happening in your March? Anything fun? Thank you for reading! Let me know what you thought!

March 2019 BUJO Setup

Happy March! (How is it MARCH?!)

Well, so far March has started out a fun month. We went to Alabama for the first two days, which was fun and I was excited about. It’s always great to have something fun to kick off the month!

Beforehand, I like to give my monthly BUJO setups a theme, (ex. January: Colors, Feb: Pinks + Reds) so when you see a lot of cacti, well, yep, that’s my theme. I also am using lots of greens, but some occasional pinks get in there(:

Without further adieu, let’s take a look!

My left opening page just says “March,” with, yep, a bunch of little cactus around it. These little plants are so fun to draw, and it adds a little color into it. The right hand side has my month calendar. Since there’s 31 days in March, I had to leave one space open. A perfect spot for some more cacti!

IMG_0235

They’re cut and easy to draw. I used my Tombow Dual brush pens for the colors and then for the pot’s lip (or whatever it’s called😄) I used an gold opaque chisel pen that I’ve had since I did some scrapbooking a looooonnngg time ago. It just added a little “sumpin’ sumpin,” as my mama says.

img_0238.jpg

This is my month overview. I like to do the little calendar squares that are about one and a half inches apart, just so I have a little room to write things down.

IMG_0237.JPG

This is my monthly habit tracker. I decide this month, that instead of doing one big grid, (see here, my February setup’s habit tracker) I want everything individually. I like it better this way. I think it gives a cleaner look. I chose to do all greens this month. (well, the pretty ones, that is.😆)

IMG_0241.JPG

More cactus(: The grids are about 2 inches wide; perfect for the dotted grid.

Instead of doing a water tracker this month I’m just using this goal (that’s trying to become a habit for me) to drink 5 or more 8oz. glasses of water daily. So far I’ve done it, and I’m hoping to keep it up!

IMG_0246.JPG

Now here I just placed many things together, and I actually like it! I didn’t at first because I thought It might be a little chaotic, (which I guess it would be if I had more colors and things to write…) but It works pretty well for me. I just put my goals, reminders, to do’s, etc.

IMG_0248.JPG

This is my first week of March log, just so I can have a more in detail look at what’s coming up.

img_0254.jpg

Here is my month letter tracker. This really has no purpose, except that I like to see when I received letters from different pen-pals. I made this one so that the person’s name is like the address and the return address is where the date goes. (You can see the first letter I’ve gotten this month up there in the corner.)

IMG_0252.JPG

This is my March savings log. I like to do this to look back on my expenses and savings.

IMG_0255.JPG

And last: my March bible reading plan. I’m following the ESV 30 days in the new testament plan. If you want to check out their reading plans for the English Standard Version (ESV) click here. They have some good’uns! The plan is that you read each one of these each day for 30 days. I like following a plan, so I’m excited to do this one! The ones I’ve done before are in Focus on the Family’s Brio magazine. (A christian magazine for teen girls) I have used their reading plan for awhile, but I wanted to try something different this time.

img_0259.jpg

Welp, that’s it! I really enjoyed setting up is month, and I’m excited to see how March goes in general! I love spring, and it’s only 18 days from now!

Thanks much for reading, y’all!

A Little Bit of February Bullet Journaling

Hello! It is now February, and with the start of a new month brings new pages in my bullet journal!

I, much to my deep sadness, don’t have as many pictures as my January BUJO Series, but I have a few, including some of my Mom’s that I did for her. I have been using my bullet journal a lot lately. I did similar things to last month’s pages, but I always give it a different style each month. I didn’t do step-by-step pictures this time, but, if you want to, hopefully you can still get some ideas if you need them!

This is my Mom’s habit tracker I made her. She only has three things for this month (😳 I have like 12!:)) She wants to read her Bible every morning, (or at least once a day. That’s one of my goals, too.) She uses this workout app called Seven, and she wants to drink 64oz. of water a day.

IMG_9330

Oh, Well, I guess I did do a little pictures of the before-sketch(: I was sketching out her February calendar, except I could only fit 24 squares on these first two pages, but I put the last four on the next page(: (More on that below) I could’ve fit them all in, but my Mom wanted bigger squares to write more things down in.

IMG_9333.JPG

And *BAM* I was finished. 😜 Mom’s current favorite color is a purple-y blush color. (No, really. She painted our door that color and my Dad is in manly disgust. He calls it pink😂) Her bullet journal is that color, too! (she’s really on a roll😀)

IMG_9335.JPG

I put the day in the color and I made a little box in the right-hand corner for the date.

IMG_9336.JPG

On the other page where there were the four last boxes, I put her a little February goals box. She picked the colors, and I think they’re rather nice!

img_9337.jpg

This is my February page. I did everything (mostly) that I did for my Mom, except the Polaroid and the To Do section. I made my calendar look like, well, calendar pages(; I made a goals section, too, and I put my most important “To Do’s” up there.

IMG_9343.JPG

I also drew, with my Fudenosuke, (one of ’em🤷🏼‍♀️) a little shadow, just for an extra touch😉

img_9340.jpg

This is my water tracker. It’s identical to my last one. I really need to figure out a different format for this…🤔

IMG_9344.JPG

This is my habit tracker for the month. (See? I have a lot! heheh.) I messed up when I was writing the label for this, so I got my black masking tape out (why do I even have that?:)) and my white pens. I think it came out pretty cool. It was a lot different from my norm, but I like it(:

IMG_9345.JPG

AUGH! BLURRY!!?

*Cough, gasp* Can you tell I don’t like blurry photos? I don’t know why I didn’t see this!

This is my weekly log. I started it this week (in the BUJO) on the 4th to skip the weekend(: I have this week wash tape from Target that I used. Except, it doesn’t have Sunday on it. *Why?*

IMG_9346.JPG‘And last of all, February savings. My goal last month was $75.00, (I made it!) and this month my goal is $80. I used Crayola markers to do the lettering, and I’ve decided I don’t really like them😁

IMG_9347.JPG

That’s a wrap for this post! Thanks much for reading, friends! I hope you have a happarvelous day! (happy+marvelous…? okay, no.)

I hope you all have a wonderfab day! I hope it’s a goodie!

2019 BUJO Setup, Day 4

text placeholder-2

Greetings, all!

Are you in good health? I hope so!

Today we’re creating a habit tracker! I use this every night before I go to bed. First, I had to list all my most important habits and picked the most important ones.

First I drew a long rectangle. I used my dots as the size for the lines. I drew the lines 31 dots apart length wise, and 12 dots height wise. Then I followed the dots and filled in the rectangle with lines, creating a square grid.

IMG_8630.JPG

I didn’t put numbers outside of the squares, but you could if you wanted too. I also wrote the colors I used at the bottom. It looks best if you fill them in using the same color for each habit.

There ’tis! I hope you enjoyed!

Come back ttooommoorrrooww!
