Hello. Today I would like to show you the bullet journal. Have you ever bought a beautiful calendar or planner and then only filled a few pages in it? Do you have notebooks that you are afraid to use? Are you fear that after a few pages you will lose your enthusiasm to keep notes systematically? Well, let me tell you that it both applies to me. If so do you, I have inspiration today that responds to such problems.
I like the bullet journals that I watch on the internet. However, I have never driven one myself, just for fear of my lack of regularity. Besides, drawing the pages always seemed tedious to me. At the same time, the desire to have my own bujo was still in me.
This year I had a brilliant idea in its simplicity! Therefore, I decided to use an art journal that is only ten pages long. (In addition, these are beautiful white pages that are perfect for stamping). But how ten can be enough, you will ask. Well, this is the perfect number to fit in two months or even some extra notes. If you change your mind, it won’t be a pity. The whole or almost the entire notebook will be used anyway. You can start at any time, without the pressure to start on January 1. The whole year will not fit anyway. You don’t have to worry if everything will turn out beautifully and perfectly because in a few weeks you’ll just close the notebook and take a new one. Or not – it’s all up to you.
Since I have no experience with bujo, I decided to treat my notebook as a testing ground. I have prepared a different layout for each week on purpose, just so that I could see which one is the most convenient for me to use. I will be using it for work where there are whole lists of to-do and meetings to be held every day, so I did not include weekends on my pages.
Another facilitation that I used are stickers. (Did you know that p13 offers a whole range of stickers for planners?) Instead of painstakingly drawing and calligraphy pages, I used planner stickers and various elements of the Free Spirit and Always and together collections – stickers, tags, banners, and papers. The first collection includes a lot of inspiring and motivating sentences that seemed to be perfect for bujo. It will be very pleasant to read them every day. And again, two collections so that I can assess the climate in which it will be more pleasant for me to write down, on the light or darker pages.
I hope I inspired you to make your own bujo experiments. If so, be sure to let me know, you can find me on Instagram.
