Plan with Me January Bullet Journal 2019 Year at a Glance

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

Plan with Me January 2019 Bullet Journal is finally up on our youtube channel! Better late than never, right? It truly is wild to think that it is already 2019 and that January is basically over, but here we are!

I think the wait was worth it though, for this video. This is my favorite bullet journal spread that I have created thus far and I am not sure how I am going to make next month’s just as ‘cool’ looking.

Ironically enough, before starting this month’s journal I turned to Pinterest for ‘minimalistic’ bullet journal inspiration….You know, so I could then do the exact opposite. Minimalism, and keeping things simple don’t come very natural to me, nor does a limited color pallet. And that’s okay, no need to be something I’m not.

I think, I was wanting to create something minimalistic, becuase 1.) filming these videos takes a longggg time, as does creating the journal spreads. So, I thought something more simple would save time 2.) I was thinking, maybe I would actually use my bullet journal everyday if I kept it simple…. All of that pretty much went out of the window as soon as the pencil hit the paper, because I can’t stop myself and more is more!

After a dead camera, broken computer screen, and many hours of doodling and video editing, I LOVE MY BULLET JOURNAL and so excited to share it with you (finally)!

With the new year, I decided it was time for a new journal too. I choose the Refillable Traveler’s Notebook that comes with 3 moleskine journal inserts that you can replace when filled up, without having to rebuy the pretty leather cover. The leather is thick, durable and will last me forever.

These refillable style journals are my favorite kind to use. I love how it wares over time, I love the size of them, not too big, not too small. Lastly, I love that you can refill it with moleskine journal inserts. There is nothing like the feeling of a nice leather journal, but I go through them way too fast to always be replacing it with another leather journal (if I didn’t work in the business, anyways).

Watch the video below to see how I’m planning and setting up my goals for 2019 and all of the spreads I created for this month’s Plan with Me.

 

As always, like the video, share it with your friends and leave a comment telling me what your favorite spread is from this month and help give me some ideas for next month!

 

 

Plan with Me December Bullet Journal Cover Page

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Plan with Me for the month of December and get your planner set up for the month ahead with this retro winter bullet journal cover page.

Plan with Me December

Hello December, the last and busiest month of the year! You always sneak up so fast after Halloween and Thanksgiving. And although, we know it’s not true, this year you seemed to come sooner. But that’s okay, because with a little bit of journaling and pre-planning for the month, I’m ready for you!

Last month, I had so much fun sharing with you my Plan with Me November journal page and vlog. It also got a great response, so I decided to do it again for the month of December!

You can watch the Plan with Me December video below, but I have also included a few close up pictures of the spread in this post as well.

For this video, I choose to switch things up a bit and get out of my sketchbook and start a new (more traditional) bullet journal. I’m using the Blue Sky Papers Leather Refillable Composition Notebook for this months set up. I loved setting up these pages, as the graphing paper in the composition notebook really helped me keep things ‘nice and neat’.

I mentioned in the video that I was having a hard time getting this page started. I just didn’t know exactly what I wanted to plan out, or what theme I wanted to go with. Then, I started watching other youtuber’s planner videos for inspiration and  got further discouraged because mine wasn’t looking as ‘cool’. Whompwhomp. Do you ever get like that?

So I forced myself out of my funk, and turned off the other videos (I still can see their inspo though). I decided I was going to go with a winter wonderland theme, and stay away from anything with too much red and green (one of my least fav color combos).

Atlas, I still ended up using a redish and greenish color combo, and couldn’t seem to stay away form the Christmas vibe. I got inspired by a vintage station wagon I saw in a magazine and mini christmas tree that I cut out, so I landed on a retro christmas theme that I think turned out VERY cute!

I will fill out the blank spots through out the month, and hope to film a video soon of my weekly spread layouts to share with you.
