January’s Journaling And Planning

Photo by Sixteen Miles Out on Unsplash Egads. January has been rough. I had some tests done at the hospital early in the month and although the tests themselves were not overly ...anything... I had originally expected to need a day or two to recover...and even a fortnight afterward I am still shaking off the …

The Journal Of Inspiration 2022

photo unsplash.com I actually started this journal/planner/bujo in about November 2021, with the intention that it would be more for work scheduling and goal tracking than for inspiration. I pulled out an A5 (my go-to size) dot grid journal, set up an index, set up the name page, and started to add some stickers -- …

Planners, Planners, Planners

photo unsplash.com This year, I have, in my grubby little clutches, four journals that I am using on a daily basis to keep up with myself. First is my hybrid bujo...which works really well for me. It is my daily log, my weekly log, a quick and dirty monthly log -- I have to write …

In 2021, perhaps in August, perhaps it was October (but I don't think so--and I am not about to start trying to figure out where those planners/journals are at this moment to check it out because ... tired...), I …

Video: The Double Journal

https://youtu.be/vu7rRn82y5I Forgive me, as I went down a rabbit hole in YouTube and found several videos on journals much like this one and I had to make one of my own. Actually, this is the second one I made. This one was a gift. I cannot for the life of me remember who I watched …

Video: Steve And The ‘Wicked’ Journal

https://youtu.be/NLbc9GawNvQ This is Steve. Steve used to be a stray. Now he lives with us. Steve used to be half the cat he is now. We have fed him; he eats, a lot. Steve is at least part Siamese. If you look up Siamese, you will see that Lynx Point Siamese is a thing. Steve …

Video: A LGB ‘Pumpkin’ Journal

https://youtu.be/rns5dGE7klo I made this journal for my 9yo per his request. He wanted pumpkins, so I used pumpkin scrapbooking paper as covers for each signature. His favorite color is yellow, so I used several different yellow shades of cardstock. I never know what media this kid will use, so I needed something a bit tough …

Video: New Set-Up For November

https://youtu.be/2sU0uHAce1A For November, I decided to shift to using a whole new type of journal for my hybrid bujo set-up. She's still an A5. Plain pages. No lines. No dot grid. Nothing like that. My class journals are plain page as well (also A5, or A5ish) and I have loved taking notes and everything else …

Evolutions In My Planner/Journal

Photo by Estée Janssens on Unsplash Apologies as I have photos, on my phone, that I have yet to download...not that they really tell the story I am about to reveal here. I have finished all of the KBujo class (this is Knitsonik's Bullet Journal class; it is not an affiliate link). It offered me …

Morning pages, three pages of hand-written stream of consciousness brain dump every morning first thing is how Julia Cameron has taught us to do them. I remember for years writing, some …
