Hello again! I hope that everyone’s spring break was fun;) I actually felt pretty productive; I went for a run almost every day for some early track and field training and completed my April bullet journal set-up, which I’ll share with you in this post. Like pretty much every other month, I had some trouble coming up with a theme for April. But I finally ended up drawing inspiration from Hungarian embroidery. If you’ve never seen it, here’s what it looks like:
I’m part Hungarian, and so these kinds of patterns remind me of Easter, which happens to fall in April this year. The flowers are also very springy and give me an opportunity to use a bajillion different colours in my spreads, which is a good thing;) They do take a little while to draw though because of all the details, so some of my spreads are a bit more minimalistic because I didn’t want to draw a ton of flowers. In the end I was really happy with the way this turned out, and I hope you get some inspiration from today’s post!
We’ll start with my March monthly recap- I don’t think anything changed here. I’m going to miss the simplicity of drawing emeralds, but I’m excited for my new theme.
My title page probably took me the longest to draw out of all my spreads this month, but I think it looks pretty good. I drew a wreath around the word April and some more flowers in the corners of the page. The quote I chose is “let your joy burst forth like flowers in spring”, which I feel embodies this theme well.
Here I have my calendar. You can kind of see what I mean when I say minimalistic here, because I only drew two flower wreaths and there’s quite a bit of empty space. But you know what, that’s ok. Sometimes less is more.
My mood and habit trackers didn’t change much. I drew some flowers on either side of my habit tracker so they look more like embroidery. My mood tracker consists of a flower wreath, and each day I’ll colour in a flower, with the colour corresponding to the legend at the bottom. I used a lot of different colours this month, but my two main ones are a kind of coral colour and a nice yellow. I use these two colours the most throughout my spreads.
On the left is my gratitude log, and on the right is what I call my flex page. I do different things on this page depending on what I need that month. There’s a lot going on for me in April in terms of sports, so I decided to draw out an activity schedule so I know where I have to be at what time. I also included another quote on this page.
And finally my first weekly spread of the month. Nothing too crazy here.
There you go;) Have a great week and happy planning!
