The Evolution Of My Daily Pages


One of the photos I included yesterday was a shot of one of my first daily pages. I was basically just making “to do” lists and decorating them with washi tape and stickers. And those were good days when I did that. A lot of days I just sloppily scratched lists not recognizing the therapeutic […]

Happy 3-Year BuJoVersary To Me!


(Yes. I did just make up a word. Why do you ask?) Do you see that volume number right there? That’s 001. That’s my FIRST official bullet journal. I say “official” because I tested the system out for about a month with a $5 notebook from Target and immediately knew: THIS IS MY JAM. My […]

Transferring Information To The New Journal


I’m two weeks away from starting another volume (#11!) in my bullet journal life – so it’s time to start transferring important information over to the next volume. I only transfer pages that I’ll need to reference regularly over the next three-four months. I’m not transferring my kid’s summer schedule because school has started, but […]

Free Monday Start Monthly Printables

Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 5.52.03 AM

Remember back when we discussed which we prefer on our Monthly View – a Monday start or a Sunday start? Well I decided I prefer a Monday start and have made some new printables to carry us out the rest of the year. My other printables are on this page if you prefer a Sunday […]

Scheduling Down Time


School started this week in my world. Soccer starts next week. On top of a full-time job and volunteer obligations, I found that my life got away from me last Autumn and we barely had time to breathe. To avoid that chaos and then anxiety it gives me, I’m trying something new this year. I’m […]

How My Bullet Journal Helps Me Run


Last year I successfully completed running my first 100K with the help of my bullet journal. I have a bit of a chaotic life, so strict training plans have never suited me. So, I printed up a basic plan I found online and just tried to keep my weekly miles above the recommended goal. Beyond […]

My Secret Confession: I like Mondays.


Mondays. It’s so cool and trendy to hate Mondays, but you know what? I like them. I like them A LOT. First of all, weekends are exhausting in our world so Mondays tend to bring calm again. But also? That’s the “start” of my week when I’m planning so everything is fresh and full of […]

When Do I Finish One Volume And Start Another?


I’ve been using the bullet journal system for almost 3 years now and I’m putting an average of about 3 months into each volume. I like starting a new volume at the first of the month, so there are some volumes with blank pages at the end and one with a LOT of blank pages […]

Preserving Artifacts From A Vacation


I tried scrapbooking for about 5 minutes about 15 years ago. I loved the paper and the stamps and the beauty of it all – but I had ZERO patience and even less of an attention span which was needed for scrapbooking. Work so hard to document on birthday party? Nope. I couldn’t do it. […]

The Random Lists In A Bullet Journal


Obviously with the #PlanDocumentCreate motto I love those three main things about bullet journaling: I can plan, I can draw, I can preserver. Movie tickets, vacation plans, zendoodles…these things represent the most common pages in my bullet journal. However, the other thing I love about the Bullet Journal system is the ability to combine all […]
