Bullet Journal: July 2020

This month I could not think of any theme ideas for my journal so I turned to some YouTubers I follow for a little inspiration. I liked the simplicity of using the kiwi fruit as a theme so I put my own spin on it and did not recreate the pages exactly as is shown in the video.

I chose a different quote to the one the YouTuber, Art n Foxes, used because I like linking mine to reading. Reading is one of my favourite things to do and I enjoy linking it to another hobby of mine.

I am pleased with the way the monthly calendar came out: the layout gives a different perspective to what I usually create. I may not be filling the calendar with much this month but at least it looks pretty.

I love my creation of the mood tracker. All those kiwis will look cute, I think, when they are coloured in with different colours – they will definitely give a fun perspective to the tracking!

I tried a dutch door for the first time this month (the videos explains very well how to make one). I like it and I’ll be sure to use one again. I was hesitant at first to make one but now that I have, I can see what fun they are.

My bullet journal this month will be used more as a diary than a planner but I still enjoyed the creation of it.

Bullet Journal: May 2020

When walking in my neighbourhood during April, I saw the beginnings of spring and the unfurling of flowers. I thought to bring the beauty of flowers into my journal for the month of May.

When planning my monthly spread, I wanted something that was quick and easy to create – but still flowery.

For my mood tracker, I definitely wanted to incorporate the flower theme. I added the mood “bored” as in April I experienced boredom and did not have a colour to represent it. I am hoping that I will not use that colour too much this month!

My weekly spreads are also simple. I will not have too many events to attend, but I will use the daily squares to note down my experiences for the day.

As we are still expected to stay at home in May, I thought the quote by Jhumpa Lahiri would be perfect for my quote page:

I love the simplicity of this month’s theme and am enjoying the spring-like feel of it.
