I love my planners and journals. Probably a little too much. I have a Classic style Happy Planner, a bullet Journal in a Leuchtturm1917, a writing journal and an Art Journal. I use the Happy Planner because its’ motivating and fun, the bullet journal because it’s so organized and efficient, my writing journal because I can dump my thoughts and my art journal because I can be super creative in it.
For my Happy Planner I use a lot of the stickers that you can purchase in the line to decorate it as well as some custom designed ones from Etsy. I print them out at home and cut them out on my Silhouette. I like to use coordinating colors and a theme for my week. Most of the time focusing on positive, uplifting messages. Here are some older layouts:
Next would be my bullet journal…I use a lot of ideas from Pinterest and my bujo idol Boho Berry. I follow her on Instagram. I have a couple pictures of my new Bullet Journal in the set up pages:
I keep lots of personal information in my bullet journal so I’m not able to share any current pictures! But I keep lists in mine of things like maintenance schedules for the house, a cleaning schedule, movies to watch, books to read, habit tracker, workout plan, fitness tracker, Future log, gratitude journal, and a daily to do list. It really is a daily tool in my life. I like that I can be creative in it but its so practical that it’s totally fine to just jot stuff in it too.
My writing journal. It’s extremely private of course. I brain dump in it. I write until I have nothing left in me to write. I take time to choose very pretty, coil bound journals with decorative pages. I end up buying a couple every year when I go to my women’s retreat in Caroline, AB. Rosemarie sources the most beautiful journals…here is the current one I am using.Lastly my art journal…oh how I love my art journal. Things come out of me that I didn’t even know I had in there. I journal for creative release. I use all kinds of mediums: Acrylic paint, gesso, Tim Holtz Oxides, stencils, stamps, watercolors…you name it, I put it in there! Here are a few pages I really like that I’ve done:
I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek into my planning/journaling life. I have so much fun with them all and they are a big part of my life!
