Last Week in Bujo: April 18-24, 2016

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I try and post photos of my bullet journal, or BuJo, almost every day.  I get tons of questions about each picture!  How do I do this or that, what is such and such for, what pens do you use, etc.?  I love answering all of these questions, and I try to do so on Instagram as much as I can.  But, it’s a lot easier to add it and archive it here on the blog.

So without further ado…

Just another finished spread of dailies. I still get a lot of satisfaction seeing the pages of my bullet journal fill up!

After this post, I got a lot of questions about wellness tracking, what are the dots on the right, what am I tracking there, etc.  For more information please see this post on using a radar chart for tracking wellness.  There is also an accompanying video on wellness tracking found here.  I’ve changed the format from a graph to these simpler dots, but the concept is the same.

My sleep and contraction tracker is filling up pretty nicely. Of course the closer I get to my due date, the more contractions I have and the stronger they get! About a week ago they started waking me up in the middle of the night 😩 hopefully that’s a good sign that baby is almost here! I’m ready!

I’ve got pretty much nothing but baby on the brain lately! I apologize if you are getting tired of these #babybujoposts 😆😁 but it’s almost time! In fact, there are less than 10 days left until my due date! I really wanted to do a different kind of visual countdown so I created this flower page. The first section has 10 flowers, then 9, then… All the way down to one big flower. As the days go by, I’ll add color to mark them off. What big things are you counting down to or looking forward to?

#PlanWithMeChallenge 4.21: Using Color. I’m finally getting back to another challenge prompt! It’s been a couple of weeks 😁 I love using color… But sparingly. If my pages get too cluttered with different colors it gets a bit overwhelming for me so I try to keep it simple. I also run through my colors in a rainbow order and stick to one color per day. That way, everything for that day (my wellness tracker, completed appointments, habit tracker, etc.) are all matching. It makes it easier for me to keep track of what day I’m looking at.

This is where I record my daily wellness tracking scores for the month.  For more information please see this post on using a radar chart for tracking wellness.  There is also an accompanying video on wellness tracking found here.  I’ve changed the format from a graph to these simpler dots, but the concept is the same.

The bottoms of these two pages had really big mistakes. I was trying to draw something and completely smeared the whole thing! It was awful! I left them there, started over on a new page, and debated about how to handle the big ugly mess. I figured, why deal with an ugly page that causes me stress when I can cover it up with a calm and beautiful collage that I love to look at? How do you guys cover up or deal with big mistakes?

The supplies I used in the photos above are the following:*
My Bujo: Leuchtturm1917 in Lemon Yellow Dot Grid
Pens: Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica in 0.3mm for color
