Bullet Journaling

I have mentioned Bullet Journaling a couple times here on the blog lately. It is the trending thing for planners & journaling. I am just starting to dip my toe into the world of BuJo (can’t really use the other shortcut – it will lead all the pervies to my site **wink**).

If you are not familiar with BuJo, here is the intro from the originator:

BUT…it is so much more than that! I have been keeping a planner for YEARS but have never found one that worked for me. I have found many of parts that worked though. I would think if I could take parts from this one and that one I would have the perfect planner. With Bullet Journaling that is exactly what I can do.

Let me say one thing from the right here… I have NO ARTISTIC ABILITY. I do have an uncanny love of markers, colored pens, and pencils! Seriously, it’s a problem. Just look:

The items in the black containers (and the highlighters) I previously owned but in honor of BuJo I decided I needed new and purchased the Frixion Markers (yep, even the markers are heat sensitive and therefore erasable) and the Staedtler Triplus Fineliners (they are amazing at only .3 mm).

I also purchased the highly recommended Leuchtturm 1917 – most recommend the dotted grid but I went for the graphed in case I wanted to draw out a quilt or a quilt block. Not only that but I am a bit of a freak about straight lines. Oh and I splurged and bought this stencil set but it hasn’t arrived yet.

I will share some pages when I have them completed but for now here is a short list of some things I plan to track:

  • Shopping List
  • Birthdays
  • Migraine Days (meds taken, triggers, pain range, water intake, weather)
  • Blog Post (social media, followers, etc)
  • Books to Read and Have Read
  • Travel
  • Monthly Pages (to do, appointment, weather, etc)

You get the idea! The good thing is that I can make the layout just what I want it to be. The one I am most excited about is the migraine tracker. Honestly, after I finish my monthly layout I will probably start there.

I have pinned many things #BuJo – check them out here if you are curious. I will share more as mine progresses.
