Hey guys! Thanks for coming by. I thought it’d be fun to show y’all what’s in my bullet journal. Here’s a quick overview:

  • Leuchtturm 1917 (and pens)
  • Key
  • Year at a glance
  • Year in pixels
  • Roadmap 2017
  • Monthly layout
  • Weekly layout
  • Weight goal
  • Blog post ideas
  • Bucket list 2017
  • Social media tracker
  • Writing Schedule
  • Photo Challenge 2017

I just started bullet journaling at the beginning of the year; I’ve really liked it! And it’s (for the most part) kept me on schedule with stuff. Anyway, so here it is!

  • Leuchtturm 1917

I use the dotted royal blue Leuchtturm 1917. I love it! It’s perfect for bullet journaling! My favorite pens to use are the Tombow Dual Brush Pens and the Fine Point Sharpie Pens.

  • Key

So, pretty important page here. I use task boxes a lot (sometimes they get filled, and sometimes not, lol!) But. Anyway, helpful to remember what each symbol/marked box means. I actually forgot one time what my cancelled task was… so yeah, good to be able to look back.

I don’t always use my color code, but hey. It’s fun to have when I’m around my other colors (don’t always carry them all around!); I normally stick with me super thin sharpie pen.

  • Year at a glance

I don’t have it super filled in yet, but this page helps me keep track of youth activities, events, and other stuff throughout the year. Also, if you don’t have a calendar nearby (I don’t always, especially when I’m making a new layout) it’s a quick and easy way to have those dates on hand.

  • Year in pixels

This is probably my favorite! I found the idea on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to do it myself! And gosh, I never thought it’d look so full, but wow. Already three months filled up! I cannot wait to see what it looks like by December (ok, well I can- don’t want the year to go by that fast, but you know what I mean!).

  • Roadmap 2017

Here’s another fun one! Another idea I saw on Pinterest, and I definitely prefer it over a new “memory” page at the end of each month. It’s cute, and it’s fun to go back to it each time there’s something new to add. It’s basically just highlights throughout the year. I really like how it turned out!

  • Weight goal

Another cool idea I found. And I feel like having a layout like this really pushes and motivates me to try to lose weight. No, I don’t always do so well, but… This is about my bullet journal, not my weight (which is a bit awkward to post, but. I know you won’t tell!)

  • Bucket list 2017

I thought this would be fun. Because sure, we all have those crazy bucket list ideas, but I wanted to come up with some that I could actually check off this year. So, here’s my page for that. Some I’ve checked off (ok, maybe one!) and some I’ve marked out. But I think it’ll be fun to see at the end of the year how much of it I complete, and what I don’t.

  • Blog post ideas

When I first started my blog, I figured it’d be a good idea to have a few fun, backup ideas for busy weeks. So I went ahead and compiled a list in my journal. Pretty helpful!

  • Social media tracker

So, I actually need to update this one, because I started it for my instagram (before I started my blog), so I’ll probably make a new page soon. But here’s what I’ve got right now. I think it’ll be more helpful for my blog, because for Instagram, well. It got to the point where I wanted to post more often, and some days I just did not have time. But yeah, so there’s that one.

  • Writing Schedule

Just a page to help me keep up with my writing goals. Trying to do a chapter a week.

  • Photo Challenge 2017

I want to take LOTS of pictures this year, and I thought it’d be a good idea to make a list of photos to take (so I’m sure to get them!) So yeah, why not add a page?

  • Monthly layout 

Here’s one of my favorite ones- my rainbow colored April layout (love it)! Here, I write down events for the month, jot down when to post on the blog, decide on my goals, and mark my tracker (which sometime goes well, and sometimes fails!)

  • Weekly layout 

At this point, I’ve actually already tried several different layouts just to see what I like, and I have to say this is my favorite. I started out with it, but didn’t like that it took up two pages. But, after trying some other things, I came back to this. I like having plenty of room for daily tasks, a Bible verse/quote/lyric, and my goals for the week. This is an example of one of my March layouts.

Well, that’s that! I hope y’all liked it! I know I’ve really enjoyed journaling!

Do you have a bullet journal? Any layouts I don’t have here? Please let me know about them in the comments! Hope y’all have a good weekend!

  1. Girl, your bullet journal is the CUTEST. It’s so gorgeous!
    I’ll definitely have to try some of those layouts. I’m not the most artsy person (with a pen, anyway), so I usually keep mine pretty simple. When the one I have finally gets full, I’m definitely going to get one of dotted journals though. 😀

  2. Gah, love your layouts! Thank for posting pictures! I’m starting my first bullet journal and looking for ideas I can easily recreate. I don’t have an artist’s eye and just love to copy others’ creations. Can’t wait! Thanks, Riley!
