January Is Coming

I have been watching (as I do) many … many … planner videos from various artists/planners on YouTube for the past two, three weeks.  I am happy to find out I am not the only one who has been given massive thought to my January journals.  I couldn’t even begin to tell you all the different videos I have watched; I start watching one…and then this one, and this one, and that one…and then there’s this whole other thread to follow…and there’s the wormhole…and the rabbit hole gets bigger and bigger.  And down I went…night after night…

So, I talked about the whole reference journal thing the other day.  About my December set-up and some of the ideas floating around for January.  I think after watching such a myriad of videos over the past week, it struck me that having more than one journal could be far more useful for me.

I think I have figured out how to use my daily Passion Planners at last, along with my new/unused A5-365 Stalogy—which will be turned into my long-term collections or my reference journal.  Still working on that one.  PLUS…the whole plan of making my own journals to use for my planning is still a viable option.

I still need to sit with a few details and ideas before I figure everything out for each journal/planner…but as I sit here, I get closer.

So, definitely on the table are my daily Passion Planners, my 365 Stalogy, and some other planner.  My problem is how many A5 dot grid journals I have now in stash and on hand…makes me look at my plans for my hand-made hand-bound journals and say, maybe I should wait on those.

Which is rough because I am already in planning mode, now that I have something new to use for my piercing cradle, since the one my husband made me fell and hit hard.  The wood broke (you should see what it fell on) and he hasn’t made another to replace it…so I had to find something to compensate.  That’s done.

I think for right now I am going to focus on setting up my reference journal and my long-term collections journal.  Plus, I already know about some other things I need on top of that.

Do you have any ideas or suggestions for what should go into my reference journal?  Or into my long-term collections journal for that matter?  Let me know in the comments below.
