Can you believe it is almost August?? Where has 2017 gone?? In a few weeks we will start back to school, scouts starts back and I am turning 33!! Wow, I can not believe it!! In July I finished my first bullet journal. I have several that I have started and not finished, but I completed the journal. During July I started thinking about what I wanted my next bullet journal to look like and then I saw the Faith planner which changed everything. I kinda fell in love with Happy Planners!! I do have a rather large stack of planners that I am currently using, but each planner has a purpose and they are not all day planners.
Of course with school starting back I decided for this school year my planner would be a Happy Planner!! I can not wait to show y’all more of this planner.
I mentioned that I saw the Faith planner and that changed everything. Yes it did!! I actually got this planner for my birthday. My Mother gave me money for my birthday and I decided this was what I wanted to spend the money on.
I will share more of my Faith planner with you later, but right now I just want to share my month view for August. I have the verse for each day written out on the day from my Verse-A-Day Challenge. Then I just added a few quotes that I liked to fill in some of the space where there wasn’t a day. Then at the top of the page instead of having my top 5, I decided to change it and note the Bible studies I am currently working on. I have my Verse-A-Day Challenge, Seeking a Heart Like His (which is our Wednesday night study at church but it has daily homework in it) and Armor of God (which is a Bible study I am doing with some scout Moms).
Then I have my day planner. I just love the front cover!! This year has been a struggle for me. With us moving I have not accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish and it has had me down. So when I saw this cover I knew this cover was prefect for my day planner.
I have my month of August set up with all the events that I know of so far. I also included my personal monthly goals and a quote at the bottom!! I kinda love inspirational quotes right now.
Next I have my mini happy planner, I actually got this planner several months ago when we were at the beach. I attempted to use it and it just didn’t work for me. I took out the couple of months that I attempted to use it for and decided to make it a blog planner. It is an undated calendar so that really helped with taking out the few months and picking up where I wanted to.
My month view is set up as my editorial calendar. I am actually planning two different blogs in this planner so it is color coded, but more about that in a minute.
My weekly view is going to be my social media planning. So I have already set it up for the whole month. Then I can go through and plan what I want to share where. For now I am planning to plan my social media for both this blog, my puppy blog and my two Etsy shops in this planner.
I didn’t need Friday through Sunday of the last week so I decided to cover it with cardstock and add cute stickers that matched my month planning. I am going to use this page for taking notes and putting down reminders for the next month.
Lastly, I have my bullet journal. I went back and forth about if I was going to use this bullet journal or not. When I decided to use Happy Planner this bullet journal was still in the wrapping and I debated on sending it back to Amazon. But its my favorite color and I have been waiting for so long to have this exact bullet journal and there are some things I still need a journal for so I decided to go ahead and use it.
I sent up my key and color coding in the front of my bullet journal. I am actually planning on making the color coding a flip out on the bottom because I am color coding the bottom edge of each page to match what it goes along with. I am also using this same color coding through out my social media planner so I will probably add this color coding chart in the front of my social media planner too.
I am using my Stampin’ Up Stamp Write for my color coding. Here is a picture showing the names of each of the colors. If you can’t read them let me know.
I did transfer over my mid-year goals from my previous bullet journal since goals, collections and list are my main purpose of this bullet journal.
My monthly set up is very basic. I have my monthly goals and weekly task on a two page spread. This really helped me a lot in my other bullet journal and I knew this was something I wanted to continue with.
Also I am still using my social media and abundance tracker. I am tracking my social media growth and how much I have each day in sells. I may move the social media tracker to my social media planner later, but for now I am going to leave it in my bullet journal.
So having multiple planners/journals isn’t as crazy as it looks now is it?? Do you use a certain planner?? I would love to hear about it, comment below and tell me about it and if you blog about it share a link so I can check it out.
