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!

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!

Our one year old Rough Collie Melli has a heart condition for which she takes medication.

I needed a way to track her pills, so went hunting for some medication tracker inspiration and found a whole lot of amazing layouts!

Below, I’ve gathered a few of my favourites for you! I hope these help you keep track of meds, vets and all the things you need to keep your fur baby going! These layouts are for humans, but easily adaptable to use for your pets.

This week’s bullet journal spread is a day late since we had our 3 grandsons this weekend! They are 5, 3 and 8 months so not a lot of work was getting done!

This is a week-on-two-pages bujo spread is based on this post from Pinterest:

Unfortunately the OP on Instagram is gone so I cannot attribute the image.  If you know the OP, please let me know in the comments!

I rearranged the layout a bit to have Sunday as my first day. I’m of a certain age that means I use Sunday as the first day of the week, rather than Monday.

I added a section for my pain levels to rate from 0-5.  Ignore the 6 I added at the bottom of the graph!

I also added a section for Blog Ideas and a spot to keep track of my Social posts for my blogs.

There is plenty of space to add inspiration quotes, notes or doodles.  Let’s see how this week works!

Though there is no weekly layout in Ryder Carroll’s Bullet Journal system, it seems that a LOT of people, me included, have put one to use.

Because my company is small and my days rather free, I don’t necessarily need a daily rapid log.  But what I CAN use is a week-on-two pages layout.

Which led me down a VERY deep rabbit hole!

Below is one of the more helpful videos that I found and it features five super functional layout options that are sure to help you in planning out your week!
