March 2020 Bullet Journal Setup

Hey everyone!

We’re onto another month and another chance at getting our lives organized.

For the last two months, I focused on compact monthly setups and space efficiency.

Well, it finally bored me and I decided to go with more space this time.

The cover page is VERY simple. I’ve left a ton of space on the page so I can doodle as the month goes on. I haven’t decided on what to doodle, but that’s what the space is for. Who knows, it may look really good by the end.

For the month-at-a-glace, I went with a vertical divider. This is my favourite kind of layout to do because you get to draw arrows and have fun with the space. It also doesn’t restrict you to a single line per day, which is just wasting space if you don’t have many events.

The trackers on the right are the same as usual. This spread works, and I haven’t thought of a new layout just yet that doesn’t involve a lot of time to setup. Hopefully by next month, this would have changed too.

Two pages for expenses again because, like I predicted, I’d needed more space last month. I only used about 5 lines in page two but it definitely showed that one page isn’t enough anymore. Especially since I track every rupee.

And lastly, a simple blog schedule because I’m a blogger and I desperately need one.

February 2020 Bullet Journal Setup

Hey everyone!

January went by fast, phew! I used my bullet journal a lot in the first half but once my internship started, I barely used it lol. I’m just managing to track my habits and expenses.

Anyway! Since I’m not used to my new schedule, I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted for February. The only thing on my mind was that it needs to be simple, and I should set it up fast.

Hence, I quickly copied the spreads of January, making very few changes. As a result, it took me only 20 minutes to set up for February and I’m very happy with that.

By the way, ignore my chipped nail polish in all the pictures lol. Haven’t felt like redoing nails lately.

February 2020 bullet journal setup page 1

The first page is simple and almost a copy of January’s cover page. I totally freestyled the “February” lettering without planning so the space was tight at the end haha. I’m not even mad about this mistake and others ahead since I got it done fast and it doesn’t look too bad.

February 2020 bullet journal setup pages 2 & 3

The next page contains my habit trackers. It’s almost exactly the same as January’s. The only change is the lettering below saying “mindset is everything”. A classic quote from my Pinterest quotes board haha.

The next page is a simple blog schedule to keep up with blogging and plan out my posts.

February 2020 bullet journal setup pages 4 & 5

The last of my setup is the expense tracker. Until January, I kept only one page for my expense tracker. There have been a few months where I barely managed to fit everything, and January was one of them. As I’ll be receiving my internship stipend from this month, I may be spending more so I made two spreads just in case haha.

And that’s it for my February setup! Simple and fast was the goal this time. Maintaining a colour scheme made setting up easier as well, since I didn’t have to think about what colour to write with for every spread.

How was January for you? And how do you think February will be?

January 2020 Bullet Journal Setup

Hellooo!

I had some time to spend on my Jan 2020 setup, and you can bet that I used all that time to make it look pretty. As a rule, you’re supposed to put more effort to make things pretty if it’s the beginning of a notebook.

January setup page 1

My aesthetic for this spread was inspired by tbhstudying. I tried to imitate her brush lettering style here. And I didn’t want to keep up with many monthly pages so I crammed everything into these two pages. Usually this would be three pages in my journal. This spread has it’s flaws, but I’m okay with those so I left it.

The habit tracker style has not changed because this format works really well for me. I also really like the quote on the right hand side.

spread 2

The only other monthly pages I use are these. Expense trackers are mandatory for me and having a page to plan out blog posts is helpful.

And that ends my January setup! It was short, yeah, but I wanted to have less things to keep up with and track.

I also posted my 2020 yearlong spreads setup, which you can see by clicking here!

Are you all set up for January? What plans do you have for the month?

Favourite 2019 Bullet Journal Spreads

One of the best parts of using a bullet journal is the flexibility.

You can customize spreads, experiment with any style you can think of, and decorate it however you want. This room for customization allows us to be very creative with our bullet journal spreads.

My 2019 bullet journal is mostly normal spreads with the bare minimum of decoration, since I was busy and focused more on usage than look. But when I did manage to carve out bits of time, I made some really nice spreads that I love flipping back to.

Today I’m sharing my favourite spreads from my 2019 bullet journal, and maybe it’ll inspire you to try something new as well! Feel free to tell me which your favourite spread is in the comments 🙂

[1]

quote: "fall in love with the process of becoming the very best version of yourself."

This is my most favourite spread. I love this quote and using the scrapbook paper to give a pink backdrop was a really good decision. When I’m flipping through the notebook, this opens up and I always read the quote, which comforts me that it’s the process that matters.

[2]

habit and mood trackers

This spread was made when I started to love the colour yellow. For years I’ve hated the colour because it’s too bright and eye-catching, but lately it’s been growing on me a fun and happy colour. The black line offsets the yellow letters well, and the trackers look really good all filled up.

[3]

September month at a glance and habit trackers

My September monthly is SO AUTUMNAL. The vibe was perfect for that season, and it’s the only time I went all out with stickers and doodles. It came out super well and I totally forgot to post that month’s setup on the blog, sadly.

[4]

monthly log and habit tracker

I tried a new type of monthly setup here. The blue colour scheme, and the lines with mildliners, actually made the spread look quite good.

[5]

habit tracker and blog schedule

This is another yellow theme that I did. The style is very similar to the last one, just in a different format. The best part of this is the sticker that says “fearlessly authentic”.

[6]

daily to-dos

I’ve seen this style of writing headings many times online and always wanted to try it. This is the only time that it came out really well. I love the look here.

[7]

January month calendar and event log

This is my monthly spread from January 2019. While it’s not very great, I love the fairy lights decoration I did on the left. It took very little effort but turned out really nice.

And that’s it, haha. The rest of my bullet journal is a mess because the only focus was on function.

2020 Bullet Journal Setup

Hey everyone!

We’re just days away from the next year and it’s time to get all our plans and planners set up for it. Since my next (and last) final is four days away, I got some time to set up a new notebook as my bullet journal for next year.

My entire 2019 is in ONE notebook/bullet journal and that honestly makes me really happy. December is ending with about 3 pages left in that notebook. I might use the last 3 pages to do a homage for 2019, by adding in polaroids and writing about memories, but that’ll be after my holidays begin.

Now, onto the 2020 setup! I have to say, saying and writing 2020 is SO satisfying. It’s symmetrical and I’ll probably play with many styles this year. We’ll see.

index page

I started the new notebook with an index. Indexes are not very used by me but I do use them sometimes to flip to some important information or notes that are in the book. Its a very simple index, didn’t decorate it at all.

2020 cover page

For this spread, I was inspired by My Life In A Bullet. Her 2020 setup looked so good and I took this decorative idea from her. I actually quite like that my 2020 is not centered and that it has a small doodle on the inside.

Next is my year calendar. Yes, I did write it all by hand and it didn’t take that long so it was fine. I carried over the leaves from the last page here. I only made it a calendar and not a future log because I usually don’t use a future log, but I do flip back to see dates of the year. My week always goes Sunday to Saturday so I didn’t bother writing the days for every month.

goals, challenges spread

This is my favourite spread from this setup. Sometime in the last year I fell in love with the colour yellow in my bullet journal, and I went all yellow here. I’m not a huge resolutions person so this spread just contains what I’d like to do in things that are in my control.

I wrote down the reading challenges I’m doing so that I won’t forget what I’m exactly doing throughout the year. The blogging goals are what I’d love to do this year. I have huge plans for this blog y’all. On the right, I’ve written some personal things that I’d like to improve on in 2020. The lettered quote “grab opportunities ASAP” is my sentence for the year since I’m a hesitant person on taking opportunities and trying new things.

period tracker and birthday list

Next, I’ve done a period tracker. I have irregular periods and it’s necessary to track them, and I don’t like doing it on an app. Until now I marked down the dates on my monthly spreads but it’s hard to see all the dates in one place that way. By doing a year-long tracker, it will be easier to notice patterns and irregularities.

On the right, I just wrote down birthdays I want to remember. Whenever I set up my monthly spreads, I need to see what birthdays are in that month online or ask a friend, so this will be helpful for the next year.

And that’s it for my 2020 setup! All these spreads are what I’ll be referring and using for the entire year. It’s always a good idea to set up yearly spreads in the beginning of a new notebook or a new year.

Are you excited for 2020? How was 2019 for you?

December ’19 Bullet Journal Setup

It’s the last month of the year… and the decade. It’s also a super busy month for me.

My bullet journalling in November started after half the month passed because of my medical emergency, but I haven’t been totally back to bullet journalling since then. Now that I’ve setup my December bullet journal, I expect to be back to full planning swing!

I have my finals this month, and I’m also doing Blogmas* so I needed my bullet journal to be easy and efficient. I decided to not be elaborate and stick to what has been working for me, and made sure that my monthly spreads are low maintenance.

*A blogging event where we blog every single day from 1st to 25th of December. So make sure to follow me in order to not miss any posts!

The first thing I decided was to go back to a yellow theme. I did a yellow theme a few months back, and the spreads looked bright and fun. I loved opening up my bullet journal. It made me happy, and I really need some of that positivity this month. Hence, yellow is back!

monthly cover page and

I kept to a VERY BASIC first spread. What I love about this spread is that it allows enough space for decoration, in case I feel like it later. I also get to see the monthly calendar view, Sundays to Saturdays, which I always refer. The right side gives ample space for writing down multiple events. Here I’ve done it so that my finals and academic dates go on the left and everything else goes on the right.

I meant to stick a washi tape or doodle on the empty space on the right side, but I left it for another day. Didn’t have time to do much when setting this up.

habit tracker and blog schedule

This habit tracker, while a little unconventional since it runs vertically and looks a weird due to the labelling, actually looks pretty good when it’s all finished up. Plus, it’s super easy maintenance. What I mean by that is, I don’t have to put too much effort in making the spread look nice. I just mark every day and by the end, it looks good on its own.

On the right, I have a much needed blog schedule page. It’s just the dates and days running down, with area to write down blog posts against the dates. I’m using pencil to write everything in case I want to switch up things. I considered making a ideas spread as well, but I already did an impromptu one when considering doing Blogmas, so I left that out.

I really like the way it turned out with the “perfectly authentic” sticker and “blog” letters over it.

Oh and I cranked up the brightness to mostly hide my schedule for the month haha. Keep an eye out on this blog because I’ve planned for some really good content!

expenses page

And as always, I have an expense tracker. I’m super happy with the way the lettering turned out here. It’s a style I should do more often.

And that’s it! I find that I’m so much happier with simple and fewer spreads to manage. This is why I’ve started to only keep the spreads that I really will use or look back at. Gone are the days when I tried elaborate spreads after copying what I see on Instagram or Pinterest. Efficiency is key now.

How is your December going to be? Busy? Full of celebration and fun? Tell me in the comments!

October ’19 bullet journal setup

Hi y’all!

I’m quite excited to show you my setup this month because I put some effort into it and made it look good.

Before setting up, I was going through Instagram for inspiration and found @bulletsandconfetti. She is doing an origami theme this month along with a few other people, but I just took the paper planes idea. I’ve never tried a paper plane theme before so I had fun doing it this time!

This is my cover page, which is quite simple. I really wanted to make some use of my washi tape since I don’t use them much so I put that too.

Next is my monthly log, along with main tasks/goals, and my habit tracker page. I actually REALLY love how this turned out. I love it.

Next, I kept my basic expense tracker and basic blog planning/scheduling page. (You can see that I decided early on to post my bujo setup today!) I doodled a few paper planes and added color to make the spread pop a little.

Lastly, I made a page for the Autumn is for Asia readalong, just like I did last month! To the right is how I started my dailies, with a cute cat sticker and regular lettered heading.


And that’s it for this month!

September ’19 bullet journal setup

Hey everyone!

September marks the beginning of Autumn in many areas of the world. I don’t actually have Autumn because it gets overshadowed by our Rainy season. It just rains every evening and also at random times during the day.

I love the concept of Autumn though. I always see such nice Autumn aesthetics online. So I tried to make this month’s spreads Autumn-y. I just wanted orange and brown.

I’ve always wanted to get real creative with doodles, but never had the time to spend doodling on a spread. I had some this month so I just went for it. I also have a lot of stickers lying around so I added stickers in the free space here. The space was looking very empty before but it looks good now.

You might notice that I didn’t leave much space for monthly events and that’s because I’ve noticed that I barely have things going on during the semester with my classes, so I highly cut down on space. If I do have any important events, I’ll bubble the day and write nearby with an arrow. The notable dates go below the box, like I’ve written one now.

I actually really like how this spread turned out! The habit tracker goes vertically down. For the days that I did a specific thing, I would X the date next to the activity written.

I’m going to be participating in a read-along for three month starting now so I made a whole spread for it. I’ve never really tried to keep a TBR because I’m a huge mood reader. But I wanted to join in on this read-along because it’s centered on Asia and it also has many books which are already in my TBR. This might just give me the motivation to read them sooner.

I used a blog schedule last month after SO LONG and it actually helped! So of course I’m doing it again this month. There was a lot of empty space below on both pages so I just tacked on a few cute stickers that I’ve been dying to use. I did leave some space on the read-along page in case I had comments to write later on in the month.

My last spread is my ever-present one. Tracking my expenses has become a habit now and while I’m not fully using it, I’m glad to do it because I know that it will be handy when I start earning and have taxes etc.

Please excuse the right side page because I wrote a blog post idea there and it’s gotta stay a secret. Shhh!

With that, my bullet journal setup ends for this month! You might have noticed that I didn’t do a mood tracker this time. I just don’t feel like having it and I don’t truly glean any information from it right now. Hence, I decided to scrap it.

Do you like the colours of Autumn, or any other specific season? What do you think of them in my setup?

August ’19 Bullet Journal Setup

I’ve officially been bullet journalling for three years!

I started it in July 2016, but stopped halfway through the month (it was experimental). Then I started in August 2016, and haven’t stopped since. I cannot believe that 3 whole years of my life are cataloged with detail in a few notebooks. Every doctor’s appointment, every expense, and tons of journalling pages show who I was for three years. I bet that if I read through all my journal entries, I’d see how I’ve changed.

Anyway! August is going to be a totally new experience for me because I’m sitting for interviews and applying for jobs for the first time EVER. I’m so nervous.

month's dates and events

I went back to the colour yellow because I just love it in my bujo. I added black outlines to make the letters more defined and it looks so good! Why have I never done this style before?

habit and mood trackers

I tried something new with my trackers as well. I don’t really like it so empty but maybe I’ll like it when it’s filled? We’ll see.

aug bujo spread 3 with expense tracker and blog schedule

I stopped doing blog schedule spread for a while because life just wasn’t letting me plan for my blog. In fact, I am writing this post at 10pm because I set that it has to go up today. I’m already struggling to keep with the schedule. Aargh. I hope I’ll be able to stick to schedule.

placements spread

This is a totally new spread! It’s about my placements and what interviews/tests I have on what days and what priority they are to me. I just needed everything on paper so I could get to action without scrambling with my plans.

I quite like my spreads this month. I always like changing up things. I’ll mostly be posting more of my spreads on my Instagram during the month, so make sure to follow me there to see how things progress!

Do you bullet journal or maintain a journal? Do you have any plans set for August?

June Bullet Journal Setup

Hey y’all!

We’re officially almost at half of 2019. I cannot wait to be done with June so it’ll mean that I’m almost done with my finals, but I’m also dreading the next academic year.

Anyway! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shown y’all my bullet journal setup. I’ve kept my setup really simple for this month since I only have exams as the main events, and am not planning on concentrating on other things.

First are my monthly front pages. I tried to make “June” a little fancy but it’s just meh. And on the right is my “snapshot” of the month, which I filled out after I took this picture. It’s just so I can see the most important events in one glance.

front pages

And then, I made habit and mood trackers. I’ve kept the style of my habit trackers the same for the last few months, and it still works for me.

I added in a mood tracker after a couple months without it because I had quite a few emotional ups and down last month. I also expect it this month, so I wanted to keep track of it. Sometimes, just knowing that I’m continuously sad and seeing the proof makes me determined to find out the cause and either fix it or deal with it better.

habits and mood trackers

And then, like every month, I have my expense tracker which has not changed in format or style for a long time. It’s arguably the most adult-ish thing I do and also one that I really value.

bujo expenses page

(Excuse the hidden part. It has some things that I can’t share with y’all.)

And that’s it for my setup this month!

Also, I did a bullet journal flip through video for the first time ever. It’s on my Instagram which I’m embedding below so you can watch it!

I’ll be back soon with another post! Have a great week!

Do you have any cool plans for June? Tell me in the comments!

November Bullet Journal Setup

Happy November, everyone! It’s the month of Diwali and I’m STOKED. I get FIVE WHOLE days of break from college and I have big things planned. And by big things I mean finishing my projects for this semester. Much excite.

I didn’t do a bullet journal setup post last month because

  1. I was too busy to blog regularly in the first place and
  2. I didn’t even find time to take pictures of my journal.

Lately, I’ve been finding lesser time for my hobbies and it also affected my bullet journalling. I completely lost track of my habit trackers last month and I opened the journal only once in two or three days.

I also didn’t find time to do a pretty setup for November. So when I had a small amount of time, I decided to do my setup super fast. I gave myself 15 minutes to do a simple and efficient setup for this month. I limited myself to two pens and just started setting up with no planning whatsoever.

Hence, my setup is subpar this time BUT, it’s enough for my use so I’m not worrying.

november main page

You can see the lack of planning by the last few dates crammed on the right lol. I took the photo before adding all the event so it doesn’t look very cramped.

IMG_20181101_171435043-01

Since I don’t have time to keep up with habit trackers, I made only a mood tracker this time. This was also really simple. I just kept making circles. It took less than 5 minutes.

IMG_20181101_171441646-01

The most important spread for me is my expense trackers. I update it very diligently and evaluate at the end of every month.

And that’s it! I’m not happy with my setup this month but I know that throughout the month I won’t be looking at the presentation of it all. In the end, the bullet journal is for my use and not to look pretty.

I will try to take out time and make a better spread next month, though.

SEPTEMBER 18 bujo header image

September Bullet Journal Setup

Bullet journalling has changed my daily life. I cannot say otherwise.

Last month, since the notebook I was using had only a few pages left, I decided to not really set up for August. I just did a monthly page with the month’s calendar and an expense tracker, leaving the rest of the empty pages for daily journalling.

Guess what. My August was SO CLUTTERED. I didn’t really even pick up my bullet journal except to note down my expenses and plan blog posts. The month was a disaster, to be honest. I was so disorganized, I couldn’t wait to start bullet journalling properly again.

First, let me introduce you to my new notebook.

I started a new notebook this month. Its from personal-planner.com, a website where you can customize your notebook and have it shipped to yourself for free.

Here is my notebook:

 

Specifications:

  • Spiral notebook of size “Classic A5”, dimensions 147x205mm and 160 pages.
  • I contemplated a lot about what image I want in the front. In the end, I decided to put a simple picture for the front that I took on Snapchat with a filter and added a small quote below. It says “I begin with an idea and it becomes something else” said by Pablo Picasso.
  • On the back, I have a coordinating coloured background and the names of several books I really love. The names go vertically so you have to start at the top and read downwards and from left to right columns. The spaces are added to separate book names. So each book title has no spaces between it’s words. Some of the books I’ve mentioned are Where Rainbows End, Before We Were Strangers, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.
  • The pages inside are tinted blue. When I saw the option, I had to have it. Blue is my favourite colour.
  • The book is divided into four quarters. I chose the first and last quarters to have dotted pages and the middle two quarters to have plain pages. Although honestly even the dotted pages look plain unless you look VERY close, even in real life.
  • The notebook also comes with a matching scale which is removable for convenience. I can put it for whichever page I want it.
  • It also comes with a transparent removable folder which, like the scale, can be removed and put in whichever place as convenient.

removable folder and scale

  • I also chose to get a sheet of small stickers and a pen along with the notebook.

So, that’s my notebook. Isn’t it pretty awesome? Especially with the tinted pages?

Now, onto the setup for this month.

I’ve been waiting for what feels like FOREVER for my previous notebook to finish so I can get to this one. It’s almost the end of 2018, sadly, for me to start using a notebook with 2018 written on the front.

Anyway, the major challenges I had with this book were coordinating with the background blue tint (I needed to choose colour pens that matched the colour or complemented it) and getting used to the size (which I’ve never had before.) It took a few tries, and multiple pages getting ripped out, but I managed it in the end.

I wanted the first page to have my favorite poem, so I wrote it.

millenials page

It was after this point that I discovered the ghosting and very slight bleeding my brush pens caused on the paper. So then I had to tread lightly.

 

cover page

events and goals

I didn’t want to start the trackers immediately after the events so I just made up a goals page. Not sure if I’ll stick to it, but we’ll see.

mood and expense trackers

Since the pages are pretty small, and I liked drawing borders on the pages, I had to make these two small and “cute”.

I intentionally left out habit trackers this month because I didn’t think I’d have enough mental energy to bother with trackers except the commenting challenge.

sept bujo blog schedule spread

As usual, I have my monthly blog post schedule in the back for any planning so I can do multiple months at once (if required).

Now that I see, the pages look white lol. I promise, they’re tinted blue. The blueness idn’t seen after I increased the brightness of the photos.

And that’s it! It’s going to take a while for me to get used to this book. Until then, I’m just going to experiment and try things.

Have you started anything new this month? Maybe school, exercise, sport, journalling? Let me know in the comments! Also do tell me your opinions on my notebook and spreads.

July ’18 Bullet Journal Setup

It’s been a long time since I posted a bullet journal setup! I actually didn’t even use my bullet journal much for a couple months because I didn’t have the time. It was just college, college work and maybe blog all day.

This month I’ve had more free time because it’s exam time (kinda ironic eh). So I present to you, my July bullet journal setup!

IMG_20180702_151216877-01.jpeg

I usually don’t keep themes but while I was making the spreads it just became a theme and I continued. My theme is the colour yellow and I’m surprised I’m happy with it because I don’t like yellow.

I kept the front page simple with leaves and yellow accents. On the right, there’s my events of the month. I hadn’t written all of the events when I took this picture but even with everything there isn’t much happening this month. So I decided to write all the events to the right and just drew something to fill space on the left.

holiday bucket list and expenses

Since I’m having my semester break for the second half of the month, I made a page to note down small things that don’t have a deadline but I’d like to do.

And on the right is my expense tracker which is the same as I always keep it.

habit trackers and mood tracker

I haven’t been doing habit and mood trackers for about three months now but since I had the time to set it up, I brought it back this month! The habit tracker is kind of the same as I had last time. I’ll be filling in the rectangles with diagonal stripes if I do that thing that day.

For the mood tracker, I wanted something different but I didn’t want to colour moods. So I came up with this. Black rectangles are for sad days, diagonal stripes for average and double diagonal for happy days.


And that’s it! I kept it relatively simple this time with only one colour. I’ll try to continue with the yellow theme for the duration of the month but if I know myself, I know that I’ll get bored and add more colours soon.

Do you like the colour yellow? What plans do you have for the month? 

 

april bullet journal setup

April Bullet Journal Setup

Oh look it’s me posting another bullet journal setup after who knows how long! In my defense, I DID mean to post last month’s setup but I was so caught up in IRL* things that I didn’t even have the time and before I knew it, the month was over.

*In real life

I didn’t even bullet journal much in March. Maybe around 5 days? I used my bullet journal to plan other things and note down stuff but actually write to-do lists? Nope. It’s more of a random notebook to write things and track stuff than actually bullet journal. But oh well, whatever works for me, right?

I know I’ll be using just as less this month as well so I made it simple.Only front page and trackers.

I was bored one day and felt like doodling so I spent a little time drawing the font page. It’s the only thing I spent a little time on.

april front page

Last month I switched up my trackers and I really like how it turned out..

march habit trackers

(yes I’m REALLY behind on my commenting game. Really need to up it this month)

So I made almost the same thing for April as well.

april trackers

And that’s it for my April setup! It’s simple, a little colorful and has less things I need to update.

Are you bullet journalling this month? Was your March busy like mine was? Are you expecting your April to be busy or lax? What are your thoughts on tracking habits? Is it a good thing or is it overkill? Let me know in the comments!

December 2017 bullet journal flip-through

Hey everyone! This is the FIRST post I’m writing after my finals are over (I scheduled the previous ones) and wow it feels so nice to not have the “you have to study!” voice in my brain.

Since my bullet journalling time was one of my “break” times from studying, I actually put in effort to pretty up the spreads. I usually don’t because I’m running low on time with classes and assignments. I am so proud of my bullet journal, you have no idea.

habit, mood and expense trackers

I especially like how my habit and mood trackers have turned out!

I’m also really proud of myself for this drawing! I took inspiration from Pinterest* and it turned out way better than I expected!

*speaking of, follow me on Pinterest!

december highlights and daily spreads

I initially left the left side blank because there was some ghosting and bleeding from the previous page’s drawing. But after I set up my 2017 spreads, without leaving any extra space for improvisations, I really wanted to do a “December highlights” page because A LOT had happened over the month.

So I flipped back to this page, stuck some scrapbook paper with washi tape* and wrote on it.

*the washi tape I’ve used here is from thewashitapeshop. You can get 10% off on your orders by using the code “thewordyhabitat”!
