I might be a little late on this post but I really wanted to share my May Bullet Journal and my new collections. I am really loving the softcover Moleskine grid notebook I started using at work and decided that I wanted to use one for my personal bullet journal too.
I am also using a Moleskine Cahiers notebook for my collections. This way, I don’t have to keep redoing them each time I start a new bullet journal. My ultimate goal is to get a Foxy Dori from the Foxy Fix but I will have to wait just a little bit longer for that.
There are a few differences between the Moleskine and Leuchtturm1917 I noticed right away like there aren’t page numbers or contents pages in the front of the Moleskine but I can write my own numbers and I saved the first three pages for the Contents.
I wanted to keep this journal very simple with clean lines and simple spreads and I started my it with a full 2016 calendar on page 1.
The next two pages are for my future logs, 2016 is on the left and 2017 on the right.
Notice there’s no title? I was going to fill in the missing titles and headlines over the weekend but I’m a little behind on some things and never got to it.
Since I moved all of my collections into the Cahiers notebook I jump right into May. I loved Belinda’s monthly title page and currently spread and had to try it out for myself! I really love it the way it is but I still need to add a couple headlines and the word art on the right.
Then I have my monthly challenges. Even though I’m not very good at keeping up with them every day I still like to participate when I can.
I’m totally loving the way my handwriting has improved by switching from the dot grid to the squares. Don’t get me wrong, I like using both of them but my OCD thinks the squares are perfect!
I’ve been using this same weekly spread for a month or so and it works great for me so I’m continuing with it in my new bullet journal.
I also have a gratitude log and my daily pages that aren’t pictured.
Now I want to show you some of my collections in the Cahiers notebook. Just like my personal bullet journal I started this one with three contents pages and then went right into my collections.
The first couple pages are for my bucket list, I’ve never actually written out a bucket list so I picked the top 5 things I’ve always wanted to do and listed those. I figure thats a good start and I will just add to it when I think of something else.
Did you see the top thing on my bucket list is to visit all 50 states? Well, that gave me the idea to create this map. I have to be honest with you and admit that I may have used some top secret techniques to draw this map but I LOVE it and this may be my most favorite spread ever! Doesn’t it make you want to get in the car and drive till you can color in all those states? 😉
