Before I started my bullet journal, I kept journals off and on over the years. I used notebooks and planners for journaling, photo’s, doodles and mementos. Nowadays my bullet journal pages are quite minimalistic and to the point. I love looking at people’s illustrated journals though, and realised that I miss that aspect of keeping a notebook. But I don’t want my to-do’s and important information to get lost in between doodles and decorations. So I got a new notebook for some sketch journaling and lettering 🙂 Here’s the first page!
Here’s my latest weekly set-up in my bullet journal. I love having a clear overview and using a little bit of colour 🙂
How do you use your journal? Do you prefer a clean look or do you decorate your pages?
It’s getting a bit darker outside, but this bullet journal case will surely brighten your day! The bright print on sturdy canvas reminds of beautiful Italy with a retro vibe. The case holds up to two A5 journals and features an inner pocket for pens, stickers, washis etc. Check it out at the Etsy store for more photo’s and information!
It’s weekend! The perfect time for journaling, setting up your new week and making plans 🙂 Today I’m sharing this post with some bullet journal inspiration from around the web, with a special theme: cats!
If you’re into bullet journaling like me, I’m sure you’ve seen lots of posts on Instagram and Pinterest featuring beautiful hand lettering! I’ve been wanting to give it a try as well, but I’m not really the type of person to write down quotes from books and movies. However, I do love music and often hear phrases in the lyrics that stick with me!
Last week I was invited to the theater to see a tribute to the Beach Boys’ album Pet Sounds. It was performed by various artists, most of them giving their own twist to the songs. Back home I got on Spotify and listened to the original songs. I do know them all, I just never heard the entire album in one go!
For this page I chose to letter the phrase that stood out to me most. It’s from the song “I know there’s an answer” by the Beach Boys, 1966.
