June 2017 Plan With Me (In My Digital Bullet Journal)


OK, after an unexpected hiatus, I'm back!  I got a bad cold...you know those ones where you just feel like death warmed over?  Ugh!  That's how it was for me.  I had no energy to do anything, much less craft.

I'm happy to jump in again and show you what I've done in my bullet journal for this month.  I know some of you who come here looking for scrapbook and card making inspiration might be wondering if I'm still posting about that, and rest assured that I am.  I have a few things down that vein in the works, so stay tuned...:)

Here's my video outlining how I set up my BuJo for the month of June 2017.




Here is short and sweet run down on what's different if you don't have time to read the video:

-In the photo at the top of this post is a mood tracker.  I didn't think I would want to do one of those when I first starting bullet journaling, but I've been wondering how my moods are affecting me these days, especially after the death of my father earlier this year.  I've been looking for an alternative to the mood mandalas that are so popular right now.  While I love looking at them, visually, it's really busy for me personally to get a handle on how my moods will fluctuate throughout the month.  So I'm opting to create a blossom for each day of the month, and fill it in with color based on my mood.  Here is the flower for June 1st that I colored and embellished for how I felt that day:




I'm also changing up my doodling practice gratitude log pages a bit: 



I'm modifying my gratitude log just slightly, trying to keep it neater and tidier, with a bit more space for writing.  My doodling page is different this time around because I'm taking the #oodlesofdoodleschallengejune done by Erin,who writes the Petite Planner blog.  If you click on the link with the hashtag,  it will take you right to Erin's suggested list of things to doodle from her Instagram account.  I was getting stumped trying to think of things to doodle on my own, so I'm doing her challenge to keep it easier for myself.  

And also, if you have looked over this post and are curious about the some of the lettering styles I've used on the pages I've shown here, you can find them gathered on a Pinterest board I created for them.  These are all the creations of other artists...I'm just trying to learn to letter these styles myself and don't claim these lettering designs as my own:  my hand lettering pinterest board.

Here also is my spread containing my June calendar and the habit tracker I consistently download from Kara at Boho Berry:



I've also planned out my first weekly log...I keep flip flopping back and forth about which format I want to use.  I went back to a format I've already used in the past.  We'll see if I stick with it or decide to go another way.  I messed up the title on the right side of the spread, making the letters for "June 4" too large, but I'm leaving it.  This bullet journalist is striving for progress, not perfection...:).




I hope you guys like my page spreads that I have so far.  If you want to see more of my progress for this month as I go along, please give me a holler.  

Otherwise, thanks for visiting and I'll see you around!
