The Craft Planner Review

The Craft Planner Review

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I’m always searching for ways to be more productive and efficient with setting up my goals and see them come to life. Finding simple ways that will help me with my time management and staying on schedule with the various projects. 

The problem that I always tend to have is that I start planning for a project and I’m very enthusiastic about it. Then I get confused with all the steps I need to take, when I need to take them and in the end I get flustered and frustrated because I feel completely lost and I’m out of schedule… Raise your hands if you’ve gone through the same scenario before…. Hopefully I’m not alone in this!

While I was on holiday, I was contacted to review the Craft Planner and after I quickly checked their website, I said yes straight away!

Vertical Dutch Door Ideas for your Bullet Journal

Vertical Dutch Door Ideas for your Bullet Journal

I’ve already talked about the dutch door system for your bullet journal in this blog post I wrote back in August last year. It’s one of my favourite ways to create weekly spreads, because it allows you to see multiple days/sections at a glance. 

For those that don’t know of the term, the ‘dutch door’ system is a way of creating a weekly spread in your bullet journal, where part of the page remains stationary and the other part is normal, and you can turn the pages as usual. This system can be applied horizontally or vertically. In today’s post, I’ll focus on the vertical option.

How to deal with Mistakes in your Bullet Journal #2

How to deal with Mistakes in your Bullet Journal #2

Since I started bullet journaling almost 2 years ago, I’ve made LOADS of mistakes! Don’t think that from all the amazing pictures you see on social media, that everyone else has the perfect bullet journal. No. Not even close! 

I have to say that in the beginning it was very hard for me to deal with my mistakes. Especially when you start something new, and you have a brand new journal that you want to make perfect, even the tiniest mistake and make you feel that you need to rip out the page completely. Which is always an option, but I prefer to find other ways to fix and cover up my mistakes.

I have another blog post on how to cover up your mistakes if you care to check it out here. And this is the #2 post I’ll dedicate on this subject. So, let’s dive in!

Bullet Journal: My July Setup

Bullet Journal: My July Setup

One more month is almost finished. I'm so excited that July is just around the corner, because we're going on vacation!!! Yay!!!! I really REALLY need some time off! I had some good and some bad news during the last month, with lots of ups and downs and I have to say that I'm in dire need of a break, to recharge my batteries and find balance both psychologically and physically. 

As you'll see, I haven't changed much during this month. I try to keep things simple and easy. So, let's jump right in!

Daily Plan Bar for your Bullet Journal

Daily Plan Bar for your Bullet Journal

For me, time management is one of the most important things in my daily planning. I tend to get distracted left, right and centre with the result of not finishing my tasks and projects. Keeping these distractions to a minimum and finding things that can help me to focus on the tasks at hand are imperative for me. In today’s postI’m going to talk about something that I've been adding to my daily spreads lately and which helps me to manage my time even better. 

Weekly vs Daily Spreads in your Bullet Journal

Weekly vs Daily Spreads in your Bullet Journal

A lot of people have emailed me lately, asking me whether they should have both weekly and daily spreads in their bujo, and how can they make them work without re-writing tasks and events? So today, I’ve decided to talk about this topic more analytically and explain how I use those type of spreads in my bullet journal.
