Vertical Monthly Printables For The Rest Of 2016

I know it’s a bit late, but I built a few Portrait-Style monthly printables to finish out 2016. I’ve always had the Landscape Style pages on my printable page, but a few have asked for more vertical style pages. These are designed to fit my Leuchtturm 1917. So, if you use a Moleskine, you might […]

Keeping The House “Show Ready”

I feel like the ONLY person in the world some days who doesn’t subscribe to some sort of “Chore Every Day” method of keeping the house clean. I’ve tried, I follow several “Clean Mama” types on Instagram, I’ve studied the Fly Lady, I totally logically support all of their ideas/suggestions/tips/calendars. But I just can’t do […]

Summer Habit Tracker For Kids

I was trying to think of a way to track my kid’s habits this summer as to not find ourselves at the first of August thinking, “Did we even open a book all summer?” My natural parenting instincts are not that great and entire weekends are sometimes spent in front of the TV before I […]

Keeping Tabs

This is one of my first bullet journal volumes when I was still trying to experiment with tabs. I knew I wanted to tab monthly pages and kinda figured I should tab pages I flip to a lot, so from early on I put the monthly tabs on top and the content tabs on the […]

The LT1917 Transition

While it’s obvious to me, I’m not sure it’s obvious to everyone that there are three different journals represented in my collection. When I first started using the bullet journal system, I just used a cheap spiral notebook to make sure I even liked the system. Once I decided it would work for me, I […]

Handwriting Envy.

You can have a nice car, a huge house, a designer handbag and fingers dripping with diamonds and not even one spark of jealousy will fly from me towards you. But if you have nice handwriting? Please know there is a part of me that hates you. If I’m just taking notes for myself quickly […]

A New Variation On My Weekly/Daily Spread

I’ve never been one to write regularly on the backs of my pages in my bullet journal. (I use the Leuchtturm 1917 Medium Hardcover Dotted.) Not because I can’t, the LT1917 paper is thick enough that it doesn’t create too much ghosting, even with my thick gel pens. I’ve just never felt like I needed […]

Monthly Pages And Planning For The Future

In order to “plan” for my future beyond the current month, I clip blank monthly pages to the back of my bullet journal and roughly scratch items on those pages as they come up. I use my own printables which are designed for my particular journal, the Leuchtturm 1917 Medium Hardcover Dotted. They should work […]

My New Favorite Pens

DISCLAIMER: I’m not a very monogamous pen user. I like to keep an open relationship with my pens so that I’m free to try new ones any time I want. For this reason, I don’t spend a lot of money on pens. I don’t use fountain pens or brush pens. I like pens I can […]

My New Daily Spread

My bullet journal brings me joy (Do you see what I did there?) in many, many ways. Yet, for some reason, when I think of writing about it on this site I get the most INTENSE form of writer’s block. I think it’s because there’s just so many things I like to talk about regarding […]
