BUJO & Planners


As you can see, I’m definitely no artist!

But this quick weekly spread hits on five different items to use your layout for!

First, obviously, is the monthly calendar.  I start on Sunday’s for each week rather than Monday.  Old school!

Second is the weekly calendar done horizontally.  I need room to write and sometimes I make verticals too small!

Third is a box for the week for tracking gratitude or any other thing your planner heart desires.

Fourth is the quote for the week. Get inspired on Pinterest or Instagram!

And five is the mini habit tracker to keep me on track for reading, meds, asking care and social media for my biz!

And that’s it! Hope this gives a bit of inspiration for you!

Here we go into 2020!

I started bullet journalling in August of 2019 and have tried four different journals with varying degrees of success.

For 2020, I’ve decided to move away from the official Bullet Journal by Leuchtturm, which I will keep for testing layouts, an into the Dingbats A5 dotted planner!

It even has a hippo on the cover, so love that!

I opted for the Dingbat planner for a couple of reasons.  First, the purple hippo.  Second the cream coloured paper (100gsm silk cream acid free fountain-friendly FSC-certified paper).  Third, the pages are micro-perforated, so when I inevitably screw something up, I can just tear out the page and move on!

I’ve set up my future log and will be doing my weekly layouts later today!

My only complaint about the planner is it comes packaged in plastic, with a sticker on it so it’s not recyclable.

I would love to have it packaged with a paper wrap, but I do applaud the minimal packaging!

]Good morning luscious lovelies! It’s New Year’s Eve and time to get cracking on your 2020 Future Log Spread! I’m new to bullet journalling, as of August 2019! Here are some future log layouts to inspire!

Wann das Buch erscheint, worum es genau geht, wo ihr es vorbestellen könnt und, und, und erzähle ich euch in den nächsten Tagen noch im Detail! Ich bin aber schon soooo gespannt wie es euch gefällt! ? . . The preparations for our little baby are taking up a lot of time at the moment and with having way to much things to do my BuJo did get a little neglected ? But.. there’s a little secret I have to share with you: I wrote a book!!! ?Crazy right!? Unfortunately it will only be available in german! But still, I’m really excited and can’t wait to share this experience with you!

I’ve been on the hunt for some Christmas inspiration for my cover page for the month of December!

Here are some truly beautiful pieces where you can find inspiration!

Sorry if this is a couple days late but I wanted to share some October inspiration for your bullet journal!

October is my favourite month of all!

My parents’ anniversary is on the 2nd, my uncle and aunt celebrate theirs on the 4th.

Our wedding anniversary is on the 9th, followed by my birthday on the 11th.

Then we celebrate my baby sister and her oldest son on the 19th, our cousin on the 25th and my Mum on the 26th! So there are lots of celebrations!

Throw in our Canadian Thanksgiving and you can see why October is my fave!

Below I’ve shared six October designs for your bullet journal!

I hope you find a design or layout to connect with, and that you can put your own personal spin on it!

Here’s my new weekly layout for October 1-5, 2019.

I used an Avery Clear Round Label (#22815) for the laurel and word October on the top left.

I followed that with a calendar for the month of October, and highlighted the week. That is followed by a section for goals and one for quotes.

The days are laid out with Sunday first, ending with Saturday on the next page.

The right side page has sections for Notes, Menu and Next week items to add.

I added a cute little ghost holding a jack-o’-lantern for her trick-or-treating.  She was made using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Holographic Vinyl in Opal.

Hope this gives you some inspiration for your own #bujo!

  • Avery Clear Round Label #22815
  • Cricut Holographic Vinyl in Opal
  • Staedtler 334-61 – Hot Pink
