For my October 2020 spreads, I looked to my daughter’s journal for inspiration which she was kind enough to let me use. I wanted a spread simple this month that would incorporate the quintessential pumpkin.
I love the simplicity of the drawing and the minimalist colour. I do admit, though, that last night I grabbed a green brush pen and added a bit of colour to the grass.
The calendar for the month was quick and easy to draw. There is not much to add to it at the moment as all of our celebrations will be taking place at home due to Covid restrictions.
The mood tracker is cute – and is definitely my daughter’s idea. Each day I am drawing in an expression on a pumpkin and it is certainly looking fun!
Last month I did not use my planning pages too much for my blog and Instagram posts. Hopefully I will have more energy for social media in October.
I love the way my weekly spread looks. And the bonus is that it did not take too long to create. 🙂
What theme are you using in your bullet journal this month?
The craziness of back-to-school in September took my mind away from sharing the pages I had created in my bullet journal for September 2020. But better late than never! Because September is the beginning of the new academic year here in Canada, I decided to focus on one of the tools elementary school children frequently use: the coloured pencil. For my quote, I decided to use a line that I loved from Anne with an E, a show that I had been watching on Netflix.
Creating the pages took a while – but I had time. I began drawing and colouring in mid-October and worked on my journal everyday until it was ready for the beginning of the month.
I love the idea I had for the mood tracker. I enjoy colouring in the pencils every day in the evening – and the page is currently looking so good.
I created a planning page for both my blogging and Instagram posts. Unfortunately not much was filled in this month.
For the first two weeks of the month, I created a dutch door. It worked really well not only because the rows of coloured pencils brightened the pages, but also because the layout suited the number of days in the first week of September.
The layout for the third and fourth week of September also look pleasing and I enjoyed filling in the spaces.
On the whole, I took pleasure in creating and filling these pages. Now I look for inspiration for October!
