Hello friends, I’m so excited to show you this month’s bullet journal layout! With all of the beautiful colors and Christmas planning, I think it might be my most favorite month yet! So, instead of wasting any more time, let’s get right to it 🙂
Please excuse how dark some of these pictures are, I tried waiting for a nice sunny day to take them but the weather was not cooperating at all this week.
I am loving this month’s cover page and all of the red and green that goes with it. I decided to add a strip of washi tape to mark the beginning of the month so it’s easier to find. I was using a small piece of a post-it note for the previous months but this looks much nicer.
My monthly spread has stayed pretty much the same for the past few months. The left side of the page is used for events, appointments and regular daily errands and the right side is a full calendar where I list holidays, birthdays and anniversaries.

Christmas is definitely the main focus of December and I’ve dedicated the next few pages to planning our holiday. The first page is left blank so I can add some journaling about my favorite Christmas memories.
The next page divided into four squares so I can plan my gift giving. There are only a few people in my immediate family that exchange gifts and this gives me just enough space to jot down some ideas and prices so I know exactly what I’ll be spending.
When I was little the holiday’s were a much bigger event than just a few of us having dinner, but, just because our family is small doesn’t mean our meal can’t still be special. I used this same layout to plan our Thanksgiving menu and it worked out great so I kept the format the same and changed the colors.
These are the last two pages in my Christmas spread. The first is just a simple list of friends and family that I plan to send cards to and the second page is a Christmas countdown. Each day I will fill in one square with a holiday doodle to help countdown the days.
My weekly spread has also stayed pretty much the same for the past few months too. The left side is always used to plan ahead for home and blogging tasks but the right side is continuously changing depending on my needs for the week. There is always a place for my weekly goals and priorities but the remaining sections are different all the time.
