Well, Howdy-do, March! // Bullet Journal Setup


WHOOOAAAA, March’s almost here!?

Yay! This means Spring and new growth in the trees and flowers and warm (er) weather. Ahhh…

I always, the past two years, have done greenery in March. (you can see last year’s setup here. (;Β ) I love drawing plants and cactuses, so why not? (: I kept it only green with tan pots. I kept it very simple, I didn’t want too much detail or line art. I either did line art on the plant, or on the pot. I decided to go with rounded letters, and I made them rather sketchy. (I did some scripty writing as well, later)


I decided to go with a different approach to the calendar. My Mom likes to be able to see all of her Sundays lined up and Mondays, like a normal calendar. I tried it so that I could do it on hers. I actually quite like it! I had to test a lot of different layouts so that it would look even, but it worked! Do you like seeing your calendar like this, or does it matter? I can’t decide.


These next pages are my favorites! I love drawing the different plants.

My habit trackers I filled in all green, and I used my white Signo Broad gel pen for the lines. I drew some plants on the “ground”, but I didn’t fill the pots in for simplicity.

I did my goals and hopes for the month on the next page, and to level it out to the eye, I did some hanging plants. ❀ Do you have plants in your room?




I wanted to bring back my weekly spreads, they’re really helpful to me, to be able to see everything in a not-so-tiny place. I drew plants in the first box, then the weekdays on the rest.


I took a different plan for my monthly income this month. I normally do this, but I anted something a bit more useful and in-depth. It should help me look back at the expenses I had and what I made from teaching.

The next page is my letter tracker page. I lined some of the boxes, ad I left some line-less. I filled everything in with the white pen, though(:


I’ve been wanting to do a “dutch door” layout for awhile, so I did it for the second week spread. I like it! It’s happy. Where the 7th day ended I drew some plants to fill the space. Beside I did the “week’s events” and on the other side I did a C.S. Lewis quote,

“There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind”


The next page has my “to do” and “reminders” on it. Nothing too fancy, but it shall work nicely.

I added a quote, “Show Up, be true, be kind, keep going,” for the last page, alongside some washi tape, for my last page.


I hope you all enjoyed! What’s happening in your March? Anything fun? Thank you for reading! Let me know what you thought!

Do you like cactuses/succulents? What’s your favorite part about March? What bullet journal theme would you like to see me do? Do you like Summer or Spring better?

  1. Ahh, AK, your spreads are so pretty! I love succulents! 🌡My favorite part of March is that usually it FINALLY starts to get warmer! Hmm, I would love to see a dusty blue watercolor theme. I prefer Summer! πŸ˜‰ Also, I love that C.S. Lewis quote! ❀

  2. LSKDJKJ NOT MARCH ALREADY WHOA 😯 Beautiful spreads as always!! My favorites are definitely the weekly spreads with the quote and dutch door. So pretty πŸ˜€
    March is a superrr full month! I’m not sure what my favorite part will be. I have a piano competition, two choir performances, a trip to Pennsylvania, tech week and three performances of our play, my birthday, and a trip to Chicago! We’ll see if I get any school done at all in between 😬 What are you looking forward to in March?
    Ooh I agree with Hannah on the blue watercolors :))

      1. You’re welcome! I have three solos (a scherzo, a sonata, and an invention) and two duets (a waltz and gallop).


  3. What a cute BUJO!!!! Oh my goodness! I still kind of want to do one. πŸ˜€ One exciting thing that is happening in March is participant registration for the National Bible Bee! This will be my first time doing the Summer Study, so I’m excited!! Oooh, it would be cool if you did a fruit bullet journal theme (I’m an avid fruit eater!). I think I like the Summer better. πŸ˜€

  4. IT’S ALREADY MARCH?!! I feel like I just said that about February!! *screams frantically* Anyhow! Your bullet journal is so so so pretty!! You know what would be awesome? I dry-erase bullet journal, at least for lazy people like me then I wouldn’t need to re-decorate it every month! πŸ˜€ XD Yes! I love cactus’s and succulents! πŸ˜€ My favorite part about March is warmer weather! πŸ˜€ I would love to see a music themed Bujo! πŸ™‚ Summeeer!! πŸ˜€ You? How was your month? Wonderful post! ❀

  5. You know I never really thought of bullet journaling as I’m NOT creative at all and I’m scared I’ll mess it up! But I’ll give it a try! 😁 I’ll try and add an inspirational quote like show up be true be kind and keep going!

    1. Ooh, you should do it! It’s so much fun, and they don’t always need a lot of creativity (even though I’m sure you are. (: ) Yes! Quotes are so fun!
