A flexible planner in a bullet journal

Something I struggle with while planning things out on paper, is that it’s not flexible at all. If my plans change, I have to scratch things out, and that makes things messy and clouded. In my bullet journal set up for 2019 I shared a blog planner I was going to try out. And it didn’t work, because I kept moving blog posts around. That’s why I decided to come up with a flexible planner for in my bullet journal, that I wanted to use to plan out future blog posts. I am probably not the only one who prefers planning on paper, but feels annoyed by how restricting it is. Sometimes life happens, or you get a new idea, and you have to change your plans. (While I use this as a blog planner, this could obviously also work to plan something else that needs a lot of moving things around!) In short, what I did was make small…

I let my Instagram followers decide how my weekly spread should look

Yesterday I thought it would be fun to let my Instagram followers decide how my weekly spread in my bullet journal should look. This is something I have seen countless times on YouTube, with bullet journals, but also make-up, food, etc. And I thought it was a fun way to get out of my comfort zone. I headed over to my Instagram story and announced that I was planning to make a weekly spread with their help and made a few polls. I waited an hour before I ended the polls and 15 minutes for the smaller decisions. Next time I’ll definitely plan this a bit more ahead. Stationery I have used: Leuchtturm1917 A5 dotted journal, Stabilo fineliner black, Tombow Fudenosuke hard tip, Ecoline brush pens 201 and 227, pencil, eraser, protractor, Twin markers, Crayola Supertips, washi tape. Yellow or grey + pink? First I asked which colours and style I should go for. I had two ideas in mind:…

Bullet journal// 2019 set up

It is almost 2019 and the past few days I have been working on setting up my new bullet journal. I decided to share the pages I made to hopefully inspire some of you. The new year is a perfect start for a new journal, so if you were still doubting wether to start one or not, this is the sign to just do it! This year I decided to use a Scribbles That Matter A5 dotted journal. And so far so good. Other stationery I used are Stabilo pastel markers and fineliner, Tombow brush pen in N89 and Tombow Fudenosuke hard tip, Micron 005 black, Ecoline brush pens in 522 and 227, grey no-brand fineliner, and pencil + eraser + protractor. The Scribbles That Matter journal has a pre-printed key. I filled in my bullet codes and colour codes. I am very proud of this page. Every year I dread making a yearly overview, because it is so much…

Participating in Inktober

October means the start of Inktober for many artists. Inktober (ink + October) is a monthly challenge, encouraging you to draw something every day. There’s an official list of prompts you can follow, or you can come up with your own ideas. When Inktober just started, the idea was to only use ink as a medium (hence the name Inktober), but nowadays even digital inking is allowed. It’s quite a difficult challenge; a lot of people choose to just do the challenges they like the most or quit after one week because it’s too time consuming. See the list of rules and prompts HERE. I didn’t think about participating in Inktober. I’m not that great at drawing, I didn’t really like the prompts and I wasn’t sure if I’d have the time. But Inktober has been going on for a few days now and because I follow a decent number of artists on Instagram, I saw many drawings for the…
