Bullet Journal – July 2017 Set Up

I have missed sharing my bullet journal with you all these last few months, however, I can say I have been using my bullet journal through this long process.  Actually this month will be my last month in my purple bullet journal and next month I will be moving into a new bullet journal.

A while back we were in Target and I saw these really cute stickers and washi tape I just had to have.  I have been saving them ever since then for my July set up.  However, I did realize in the process of setting up the month of July that I don’t use washi tape and stickers very often in my planner.  I tend to prefer to leave things a little simpler with just a color scheme for each month.

I set up my monthly calendar spread just like I always do, except this month’s color scheme is red and blue (of course for 4th of July).  I did include some of the stickers on my calendar page.

I absolutely love my gratitude log and do not plan to change it any time soon.  With all the stress over the last few months its help me find something each day to be thankful for.  My self care tracker has been the same for several months now.  I am thinking about changing it up in August.  I have seen some super cute ideas on Instagram.

I did decide to add an editorial calendar into my plans for this month.  I am working really hard on getting back to blogging here and at Anderson Puppy Palace so I felt like the editorial calendar was very much needed.

I love my social media tracker and my abundance log.  It helps me to track the growth of my shops and my blog and see how I am doing with growing my social media and my shops each month.

Focus and task are something that I picked up from Your Best Year 2017.  I am not sure I will continue using the focus on a monthly basis next month, but I do know the task is really helpful in making sure I achieve what I want to achieve each month, but it breaks everything down into weekly task.

That is my basic set up for each month.  After that I will start my dailies!!  Do you blog about your bullet journal??  I would love to see it.  Drop a link in the comments and I’ll check it out.

Bullet Journal – March 2017 Set Up

February was a rough month for me between moving and health issues I just kind of forgot about my bullet journal.  I actually picked it back up this past weekend and set it up for March and decided to just do my dailies for the last few days of February after my March set up since I had basically not used it at all in February.

I am loving the monthly intro page for each month and I kept that up this month with some bright spring colors of green and pink.  I felt like it was fitting for this month between St. Patrick’s Day and the first day of Spring.  Although I am not sure we really had a winter here in Alabama.  My rose bushes never went dormant.

Next I set up my monthly calendar spread and task list.  I really love this layout and it seem to work really well for me.

Then I set up my gratitude log.  I got this layout from Kara over at Boho Berry last year and I still love it.  I do like to add some washi tape and some type of quote or doodling in the empty space each month.

Next is my editorial calendar for my blog.  The only issue I really have is when I plan something and then decide to post it on a different date.  Last month I had made some stickers to use for this spread.  I need to make some for March too.

Then I have my habit tracker and my abundance log.  I really struggle with my habit tracker in a monthly layout.  I am thinking about changing it to a weekly tracker but since I don’t use weekly spreads right now I have left it as a monthly log.  I absolutely love the abundance tracker from Lisa Jacob and her book Your Best Year.  It has been so helpful for me and with the changes I am making it will help me even more.

Last I have two two-page spreads of tracking from Lisa’s book.

My March layouts are rather simply, but they work for me!!  Do you have any monthly spreads you use that really work well for you??

Check out my video walk through on Youtube!!  Make sure to follow me over there.  I am still learning the video side of stuff so if you have any tips please let me know.
