Ok, I know I might be jumping the gun a little on this post because there’s still over week of February left, but I’m just really excited about March! Simplicity is key for this month, as I’m beginning to find out what works for me in a bullet journal. Let’s get right into my set-up- I can’t wait to show it to you guys!!!!!
Here’s my title page! I’ve gone with a cactus theme in March for three reasons: 1- I feel like cactuses (or is it cacti?) are kind of trendy right now. 2- I think cactuses ( I;m going to go with cactuses) are cute. 3- I need an excuse to incorporate the quote “go sit on a cactus” somewhere in my layout. Cactuses are also green, which make them perfect for March, because when I think of March I think of new buds on trees, grass, and St.Patrick’s Day, all of which have to do with green. Drawing theses succulents was super easy, I found some clipart on Pinterest that I used as inspiration.
Ok fine, maybe I copied the cactuses straight from the image. My definition of inspiration may be different than some peoples’. Anyways, this page is super simple but cute at the same time, which makes it a winner in my opinion. Underneath my quote for March, which is “Let Spring Begin”, I stuck with my usual mini calendar and a space for my March events and goals. This has worked for me in the past, so I’m sticking with it. One thing that’s important in bullet journaling is definitely the fact that you need to include what works for you, not what’s in your friend’s journal or what you saw on that awesome book/healthy eating/ bullet journaling blog for teens (what? I can do a little self-promo if I want to!). The point is, don’t feel pressured to keep up with the Joneses when it comes to bullet journaling.
My weekly layout is basically the same as February’s, I just tweaked a few small things. First of all, for each day I drew a kind of tumble-weed cactus thingy instead of the date and wrote the abbreviation for the day of the week on it. This is just a nice change up, and it looks kind of cool. I still included the date on the other side, however, because I want to keep track of that. I also put in a To-Do list instead of a Brain-Dump, because I found that my brain didn’t really need to do a lot of dumping. Other than those minuscule changes, I stuck with the cactus theme and kept most of my elements from February.
That’s all for now folks! I will be sharing my Monthly Recap page later this week, so be on the lookout for that, and I also have a great recipe that I want to post soon. Thanks for reading and see ya later!
