I had such a lovely response to my first Bullet Journal post, that I have decided to do monthly updates for you. I didn’t do a January spread because I spent so long doing my introductory pages and wanted to get my head around this whole Bullet Journaling thing, so began with February.
As February is the month of love, I decided to go with a roses theme. I didn’t want to do the usual hearts, so instead opted for sketched roses in pink and red.
To create my February title page I stuck washi tape in a square and then drew my rose design around it. I added colour using my Sayeec Watercolour Brush pens and once the ink was dry, I removed the tape. I love the effect it created! I then stupidly wrote ‘January’ in the middle of the square and had to manically sent my husband out to buy Tippex. Crisis averted.
After my February title page, I had a go at creating some mini trackers for the month. I made them for My Fitness Pal, 10,000 steps with my FitBit and Run Days. I also made a wheel shaped one for ‘no spend days’. I have quite enjoyed using these so far, but I don’t always remember to do them. I don’t think I’ll do the My Fitness Pal one next month because it makes me feel rubbish about my eating, when actually my diet has been great! The ‘no spend’ one has been a real eye-opener and something I want to continue tracking next month.
Now for my Weekly Spreads!
As you can see, I kept it very simple with my layouts. I kept the roses running through the pages, just re positioning them on the page each time.
I also added another photo page for my Instax pictures because I’ve taken quite a few this month (Baby J is on a roll!). I thought this was a nice little addition and something I know that I’ll love looking back on.
So for next month, I’m thinking of going with a cactus theme – what do you think? I think I can then vary my weekly spreads a bit more with different shaped and types of cacti.
Thanks for reading!
Two Little Boys was set up by Sarah Watts, a mother of triplets, in 2002. Sarah had noticed a gap in the market for well designed and even silly products for children and so set up the business creating activity books, snap cards and memory books to record your child’s progression through life. The business has since grown and she now sells a very large variety of products – see for yourself here.
After a brief conversation with Sarah, she soon learnt that I was a primary school teacher and so knew how much I love my stationery! She was kind enough to send me a variety of beautiful notebooks – including these amazing mini quote notebooks (which had my husband giggling!).
The notebooks are perfectly sized for travel and would fit well in a handbag/nappy change bag/man-bag, etc. There are 30 120gsm pages which are lined and perfect for all your Very Important Notes. There are a lot of quotation note books to choose from, all with hilarious references from films and general life quotes (be prepared for a few very appropriate swear words too!). To view the large selection of books from the ‘Stationery Lovers of the World Unite!’ collection, click here.
As you all know by now, I’m a huge geek and I’m never afraid to admit it. I’m a big fan of The Walking Dead (although recent series’ have started getting a bit too gory for me!) and when I saw the How to… collection of stationery, featuring this set of How To Survive a Zombie Apocalypse, I was very excited!
I received the A4 refill pad –
And the How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse Notebook –
Both books come jammed packed with paper and a hilarious comic style strip on the front cover. The cartoon is satirical and very funny, poking fun with a fondness at the daftness of zombie films and TV shows in general. I love how colorful these front covers are and have already thought of a few people I would gift more of these to.
There are other funny instructional notebooks in the How to… collection and you can check them out here.
Be sure to check out Sarah’s website Two Little Boys here – you’ll definitely find a gift for a loved one, I can guarantee it. There are pencils, books, mugs, memory books, wedding gifts and children’s activity books to name but a few.
