January has been my second month of bullet journaling and I am enjoying the process so far. I find setting up the spreads relaxing as I let my mind wander while creating. For my January spreads, I decided to use the theme of Chinese lanterns as this month sees the celebration of the Chinese New Year.
It was fun drawing all the lanterns and I was delighted to see the result. Opposite my cover page for the month, I decided to choose a bookish quote. My daughter found the perfect one for me from Harry Potter.
It did take me a while to draw all the little lanterns for all the spreads – especially as I use the A4 size journal. The time doodling and colouring, however, passed quickly while I listened to music and chatted with my daughters if they were sitting at the table with me.
I have started tracking certain habits – especially those that are linked with my annual goals. It has been interesting for me to see the trends.
My weekly spreads have definitely been a delight. I am recording any tasks and events that have been planned for the week. I am also using the page as a journal to record my thoughts and experiences.
I am enjoying the lantern lights that I have created for January. Now I need to think of the theme I should use to create pages for February.
Have you created January spreads for your journal/planner?
