January BuJo + Free Stickers

Happy New Year! We are shaking off the weirdness of 2017 and starting this year with a whole lotta good stuff! This Friday I seem to have gone a bit overboard (that's what happens when I take one whole week off, I suppose) we've got a Sakura give-away (details on my Instagram or in this week's video), free digital stickers (illustrated by moi) and yes, it's finally happened, my first bullet journal tutorial! Watch it on my channel, when you're done with this blog post, of course! 

Whatever 2018 may bring, it will always be the year that I started bullet journaling. And I really love journaling. Like, really really. It's funny, because for a long time I thought that I wouldn't enjoy it at all. I thought it would be tedious and self-involved and overly time consuming. But I was so wrong!

BuJo turned out to be all my favourite things hiding in one lovely, meditative hobby. It's all about organizing and list-making (and crossing off said lists-my fav!) and doodling and designing and lettering. All the best things in life! So needless to say I now have nothing but time for my new hobby and not only to I love spending time on my journal, but it's helping me to stay organized and stay motivated when it comes to my resolutions. Side note: is there anything MORE motivating than getting to put a little check mark beside an item? I don't think so.

So let me show you around my journal! Above is my January front page; I decided to do a very BuJo-y paper cranes illustration, as well as my month-at-a-glance calendar. Below the calendar I list important dates and my weekly YouTube videos. 

After my January layout I have a weekly spread that I'll do for each week of the month. The spread takes up two pages with lots of room for daily to-do lists, lots of negative space (very calming and always good design) and the bottom left corner gives me the perfect spot for a weekly doodle. 

I also used a few pages at the beginning of my notebook to do a 2018 yearly layout. I created a simple two page spread with the 12 monthly calendars, a 2018 botanical illustration title page, some pretty quote pages that incorporate collage, and one page was dedicated to my goals, words and resolutions for the coming year. 

Watch this week's YouTube tutorial for a full 'tour' of my journal, lots of tips and tricks for creating your own beautiful BuJo, and all the contest details (find them in the video description).
