I am quite sad that I have been so missing in action from my blog lately. I plan to make an appearance more than I have recently starting now. I’ve missed it!
I absotively (yes, it’s a word. I just made it up. Seems fitting.) can’t believe we’re already at April. Normally the January through March months seem to go by really slowly, but 2020 and this year, thus far, have blown by. I don’t support that. I assume April and May will go fast as well, with school wrapping up and Summer plans starting to be made. If any of you are still in school, when do you end for the year? My family usually breaks the day-before Memorial day. Not too long!
Anyway, y’all know the drill. The first of the month brings a new bullet journal setup on my blog. I went just easy and colorful and fun for this month, and I think it turned out fun! Also, please stay until the end to take a poll!
I will say, the first two pages host a font I really don’t like. Oh well.. it does get better. ;P
On the lefthand side there is a quote (one that seems to be a go-to in my BuJo, oh dear!) that says “Joy is the most magnetic force in the universe.” I believe it to be true.
The righthand side has the intro for the month, “APRIL”. I outlined it in black (the font and the page) and then I did colorful abstract dots all over. This is carried throughout.
The next two pages are the holders of this month’s calendar. I used the same font and then the corresponding colors of the first two pages. A fairly simple layout, but very effective!
The left page in this spread has a quad of different things: goals, to dos, reminders, and ideas. I like to group them together; oftentimes each the four play off of each other. Surrounding this I have the same pattern as the previous pages.
On the right page I have Spring goals (I know this should’ve been started in March, technically, but I was making that layout in February, so I guess Spring wasn’t quite on my mind yet. XD) which I decided into three columns for different things.
On the left of this set of pages I have my usual habits tracker. I’ve had the same few habits to build for the past few months: Bible (daily readings), Tidy up (any area I’m in daily), Water (at least 64 oz. daily), and Skincare (in the evenings and mornings). I’m pretty good about all of them, but having this opened up by my bed encourages me.
On the right I have the first weekly log.
This is probably the busiest, and quite possibly my favorite, spread in this month. I went ahead and made the rest of the weekly logs for this month, and where the month ended (far right) I slid in the money tracker (incoming and outgoing money). It actually works quite well with this layout, especially if you’re running out of pages and want to save space.
On the left, I have the mail tracker for this month. Just the usual, envelope shapes rectangles where I write the name of the person, the date in the left hand corner, and I check the “stamp” (the square in the righthand corner) when I’ve replied and mailed it out.
On the right I have a section where I can give a recap of the month. I like doing this so I can go back and read about all I did later.
Well, that’s all for April’s setup! I’d love to hear what you think. Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Easter if we don’t chat before then!
Do you have Easter plans? What is the weather usually like in April where you live? Do you like the Spring? What is your favorite recipe?
