How to make the Last Months of the Year incredibly Productive

It’s hard to believe that this year is actually in its final few months! It seems that 2018 has literally flew by and I can’t believe that 2019 is just around the corner. With the holidays upon us, days seem to go by faster than ever, making you feel like you have a lot less time on your hands than you’d hoped.

A lot of people have already started thinking about their new year’s resolutions! January 1st has a fascinating effect on most people, acting as an opportunity to change everything. But 2018 is not over yet. So, instead of worrying about what changes we can make next year, let’s focus on what we can still achieve in the next few weeks. 

How to make your own stickers for your bullet journal

I share with you the way I make my own stickers to use in my bullet journal. It's for those days that you just don't have enough time to doodle anything at all, but you still want to have fun and be creative with your journal. - www.christina77star.co.uk

Today I'll share with you the way I make my own stickers to use in my bullet journal. It's for those days that you just don't have enough time to doodle anything at all, but you still want to have fun and be creative with your journal. Of course you can use the same technique to make any type of stickers you want.

What you'll need:



The first thing you need to do is to take a piece of white paper and make all the doodles that you think you'll need. I made some weather icons, because they can be time consuming sometimes, the days of the week with some colourful background and some fun little tick boxes, as well as some plain paper pages that you can utilise in many ways.

Once you are happy with all the doodles you've created, you'll need to scan the page and then print it on a self adhesive sheet. I used the Avery Clear Sticker Project Paper (8.5"x11"), but you can also use white sticker paper. It's really up to you. I just like to have the same colour as my notebook's pages.

Then, every time you need to use one, you can cut it with the scissors and you're done!

Making your daily spreads is going to be so much quicker and easier now for those days thay you just can't spare any time on being creative with your bullet journal.

** You'll need a permanent marker to write on the stickers :) **

How to make your own font


If you know me then you know that I LOVE Fonts! I constantly look for new fonts to add to my collection and to use, and I am always checking Creative Market for new font bundles and typefaces. If you'd like to see my favourite fonts, then you can check them out in the relevant post I've written here.

But how cool would it be if you could make your OWN font? And what if I told you that it takes only 3 to 4 easy steps to create your masterpiece?

Oh, yes it's true! As I was searching the other day, I came across this website called MyScriptFont.com where you can create a font from your handwriting. The process is quite straight forward.

Once you visit the website, then you have to download a template. You can choose between a PDF or PNG format. Then you have to print it, so that you can start writing your letters on it.


You fill in the capital letters, lower case, numbers and punctuation. There are also optional letters to fill in for languages like german, french etc. that have different punctuation on certain letters.


Make sure that your letters touch the bottom inside line like my 'e' and they don't go over it like my 'o', if you want your letters to be on a straight line when you type.


If you don't mind or you want an uneven type of font then you don't have to pay attention to that line. However, your letters should not go out of the little box or touch the sides. Make sure you're using a medium-thick black pen so that you get the desired result. I tried it with a thinner tip pen, and the letters didn't come out as vivid as I wanted. Of course you can try different things and different ways until you get what you want in the end.



Once you are satisfied with the result, then you have to scan the template and upload the file on the website. At this stage you also get to name your font (cool!) and choose a TTF or OTF format. (Of course I named my first font 'Christina' .... how creative!!!) Once you've done all this, then you click start and wait for a few seconds. And Voilà! Your font is ready to be installed in your computer!

Go to Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Fonts
Copy / Paste your font there and you're good to go :)

So, say hello to my very first font!



I know it's not perfect but I think it's ok for a first try. I'm sure I'm going to be creating more fonts from now on!!!! :)

Then I had a brilliant idea! What if instead of letters I put in each square a doodle?


So, I just made some doodles in a new template form and followed the above steps like before. To my surprise it worked and I present to you christina77star's doodle font ;)


You can see that not all of the doodles came out as perfect as I'd like to. When making doodles you can certainly play with the thickness of the lines so that they come out clear, and stay away from little details cause they will not come out as good. But all in all I'm really excited with the result! If you'd like to download my doodle font please click here.

Hope I inspired you today with something new. If you create any new fonts I'd love to see them.
