Can you believe it that we're only 56 days before Christmas? What????? 2017 is literally flying by and I'm trying to focus and finish as many of my projects as I can before the end of the year. This month I've decided to do some things differently and to add a few new spreads in my monthly set up.
This is why I love bullet journaling so much - you can make any changes you want and try new things all the time :)
So, let's take a look at how I've set up my bullet journal for November:
For the front page, again I chose one of the designs I've created in my Etsy Store. This time the little penguin is pretty cold and he's wearing his hat an scarf. It took me no time to print it on a sticker paper and add it on the page. These printables are for 2018 but, in order for me to use it for this month, all I had to do was to change the days at the top so that they start from a Sunday. Simple! :)
I had so much fun creating these designs and you can find the whole Printable Calendar Kit for 2018 in my Etsy Store.
The next page is my Monthly Goals. I kept the same layout that I've been using for the past few months, but I created an autumn theme with the leaves and the respective colours.
Next comes my Month at a Glance spread. This month I've decided to use both layouts on the same page. I wanted a spread where I can see both my work and my personal monthly calendar at a glance, and I think this is going to work just fine. The calendar on the left will be for my work, so that I can see all the projects I have at once, and on the right is going to be my personal calendar with all the important dates I need to remember.
Next up is my Brain Dump Spread and my Workout Log, that are regulars in every monthly set up. :)
My Gratitude Spread has changed quite a bit! Even thought I loved using the gratitude jar in the last two months, I wanted to create something different. I've been reading the 'Thank and Grow Rich' book by Pam Grout, and I wanted to create a page with enough space, so that I can write 3 things that I'm grateful for every single day. This is one of the games that the book asks you to take part in and see how things will change in your life, in only 30 days.
I decided to turn the page sideways in order to use all the space available. For the layout I got inspired by Micah. I love how the spread turned out and I can't wait to start writing on it ;)
The next two spreads are brand new and it's the first time I'm using them in my bullet journal.
The first one is a Sleep Log. I've been seeing them constantly online and I love that at the end of the month you can see your sleeping patterns. I hope I'll remember to fill it in every day!
* I know that the numbers are not perfectly lined, but it took me quite some time and I had to be REALLY patient to fill it in, so it doesn't bother me at all!
The last spread is a Mood Tracker with a mandala. I wanted to try this one for quite some time now and I've finally did it! It took some time to create the mandala part, but I really like how it turned out and I can't wait to start colouring it. I've decided to follow the way that @adybulletjournal did it. I've separated the circle in 30 sections - one for each day of the month. And instead of creating the mandala as I go along, I'm going to be just colouring in that section with the appropriate colour.
Again, I know that it didn't turn out perfect, but I'm really pleased with the design and I'm going to be creating more mandalas in the future for sure!
So, there you have it. My November set up in my bullet journal.
I love getting inspired and trying new things, so let me know in the comments below of any other spreads I should try in my bullet journal.
