I have had this journal and a set of colored fineliner pens for about two months now. This was a gift from my friend Lee as I was leaving for Singapore. She shares my enthusiasm for planning and organizing so it was a thoughtful gift, thanks Lee!
The journal itself is a beautiful turquoise Leuchtturm 1917 with numbered and dotted pages, which makes it easy to write on a straight line or doodle. I love it!
Content page and the beginning of my journal set up…
November events and tasks page layout (Note to self: use a darker color as this is hard to see or perhaps I should just overwrite this one more time to make it darker since I like the color!).
Daily log layout (last days of the month) with Birthdays & Anniversaries spread. Got this balloon idea from Pinterest. To see where I get my inspiration, check out my bullet journal board.
Admittedly, I find it therapeutic scribbling balloons and zig zag patterns…
Before actually starting bullet journaling I watched a few videos from Boho Berry, Video 1 and Video 2. I believe I watched video 2 before video 1 – sometimes, I like to skip ahead to see what I’m getting myself into! In one of the videos Boho Berry suggested starting bullet journaling in a simple notebook. And that is what I did. I drafted my layout in another journal I had and tested it for a month to see if I like the collections I had and what I used most. This also give me more time to do research on Pinterest and Instagram for fun layouts of different collections. Patience does payoff after all as I’m happy I can start November in a fun, organized fashion.
