Can you believe it’s already September?! 2021 is just speeding by like crazy! I’m so excited though for fall though. It’s one of my favorite seasons!
As I said in my August set up post, I used up my entire teal bullet journal. So I got a new one, and I really love it – even more than my old one! The color is beautiful, and it’s like twice as long.
I’m super excited about my new journal, and I love it so much!!! Can’t wait to use it more in the coming months. Now on to my September spread!
Originally I was going to do a pastel themed spread, but I just wasn’t feeling it, so I did a little poll on my blog with a few different ideas. A lot of you voted that I do a lavender theme, and I really liked that idea so I went for it! I really enjoyed making, and I love the way it turned out! 💜
~Cover page and calendar
~Quote page and gratitude log. That empty space going to have my word of the month when I decide on it lol…!
~Habit Tracker! Anyone have an idea for that last space? Haha. 😅
~Mood Tracker! Getting all the spaces in the circle even and the same size was hard, and it still looks a bit uneven, but that’s ok!
~Bible and reading trackers, and my social tracker. My favorite and most used page as usual!! I haven’t written in the books I’m reading yet (I still don’t know!), so I guess you’ll have to find that out in my September Recap post later on. 🙂
~Sleep tracker and activity tracker. The activity tracker is something new I’m trying. Basically it’s for workouts and exercises, and tracking how many minutes I spend each day doing them. I’m interested in seeing what the numbers are. And if it works well, maybe I’ll make it a regular! 😀
~My daily log. 😀 I’ve realized that for the longest time I’ve only done the same, super simple spread for my daily logs, and decided it was time I did something a bit fancier! I quite like how it turned out! As usual, I didn’t write in most of the dates, so that if I skip a day I won’t waste space. 😉
And there you have it!! My very first set up in my brand new journal. I hope y’all enjoyed, and that this post was inspiring to you!!
Hello everyone! Today I have the privilege of reviewing some items from my friend Josephine’s new Etsy shop, GraphicsbyJosie. Her all digital shop is full of useful, fun printable, and art. Everything is digital, which means you don’t have to pay shipping! It’s all is super affordable, and well made.
Josephine kindly sent me her Digital Adult Coloring Book, and two of her Large Group Portraits for me to review here on the blog. So exciting! And so, without further ado, on to my review!
Starting off with the Large Group Portraits. I loved this so much!! Josephine was super fast getting the drawings done and sent, and she did a phenomenal job. I really, really love how they turned out!!
She drew this picture of me and my siblings, as well as one with my whole family. I love them so much! The sibling one is definitely my favorite of the two. ❤ I keep staring at it, because it’s so cute! XD
These are the original photos. 🙂
Now get this… These portraits cost only $5.00 on her shop! That’s an amazing price for the work that she does. However, that’s only an introductory price, so get yours quick before the price goes up!! Get it HERE!
My favorite things about it: 1) Super simple, easy to color 2) Since it’s printable, you can pick and choose which pages to color, as well as print them out over and over whenever you want!
What I didn’t prefer: 1) Most of the pages weren’t as detailed as I generally prefer, but that’s a matter of preference. 🙂
I picked out a few pages to print out, and tested them with several different mediums. I found that water color paint work well on the pages that have a lot of empty space, where as if I used colored pencils or pens, it would have taken a bit of time to fill. But I didn’t mind that with the watercolors, in fact, I really enjoyed it.
The other pages with more detail, were perfect for colored pencils, pens, and markers. 😀
This picture was colored with colored pencils. I love all the random and fun shapes in there! I enjoyed coloring this one immensely.
I colored this page with watercolors! Watercolor paint was perfect, because I feel like, for me at least, it would have taken too much time to color with pens or pencils. And I love how it turned out! Painting the galaxy was a blast. And guys, the quote…? Love it!! ⭐️ ✨
And lastly, I colored this one using markers. Guys, coloring this, choosing the colors, watching it come together… It was so satisfying and relaxing! I used tons of colors in this, and I love this way it turned out. This picture was well drawn, and had the perfect amount of detail, without having too much.
And here are my finished pictures! I definitely had a good time coloring these, and would recommend this coloring book. 😀 It costs only $3.95, which is only like… 25 cents per picture – how cool is that?! So go check it out!!!
All in all, Josie’s shop was lovely, she keeps adding more fun stuff, and it’s all at a pretty affordable price. She was also great to work with, and got my products to me in very good time. So yeah. Go check out her Etsy Shop! 😀
Hey everyone!! Can you believe it’s almost August?! To me, August seems to signify that we’re nearing the end of the year. How crazy is that?!
Also, this set up used up the LAST of my bullet journal!!!! “tis a bit sad, like saying good bye to an old friend (Hey! It stuck with me throughout this whole year!). BUT. I have another one coming in the mail soon! I’m excited to get it, and to show you guys in my September set up. 😀 (Spoiler: It’s a certain shade of green. That’s all I’m saying. You’ll get to meet him next month.) 😉
Anyways, the theme for this month, is….
I’ve been wanting to do a sunflower theme for months, and I’m (mostly) really happy with how it turned out! There are a few things yes, that definitely could have been done better, but for the most part, I love it. 🌻
Here is the cover page, Word of the Month, Goals (which I haven’t written yet, sorry!) and a gratitude log. As you can see, I have everything pretty compact and squished together, since I had only a few pages left in the book to fit everything. When I get my new journal, I hope to be a bit more loose with it, and be able to use some more pages! And I love how the little sunflower I drew turned out…. 😀 (If I do say so myself. Lol!)
My word of the month for August is Meekness – something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately! Which actually brings me to my first regret – the lettering I did for “Meekness” is atrocious. I thought and thought of ways to cover it up, but that was easier said than done. At last, I decided to be meek, leave it as it is, and post it anyway. It’s a good reminder to be humble… LOL! 😂
Mood tracker (which I love!) habit tracker, and a goals and rewards thing. 😀
I did a sleep tracker for the first time last month, and it went well, so I think I’ll start adding it to my regular set up from now on. 😀 The second page was empty and I couldn’t decide how to fill it, so I finally decided to do a very random “life tracker”. Kinda like a habit tracker, but different. I think it turned out pretty cute!
And this brings me to my second regret, which is how I accidentally wrote “Life”… Oh well, I’ll survive! XD
And lastly, my Books, Bible and Social Tracker! I left some space on my books and Bible sections, to hopefully write in more books that I want to read, but didn’t necessarily plan on. 🙂
And there you have it! There’s a weekly log page as well, but it’s pretty boring, so I won’t show it here. 😉 I really love this set up, and CAN’T WAIT to use it! Yay for August! And sunflowers!! 🌻 ❤️
As a bonus, here are some sunflower pictures I took last year, that I love! 😀
I hope you guys enjoyed this post!! If you bullet journal, what’s your theme for August? 😀
Hello people! Can you believe it’s already (practically!) July?! So crazy! But, I’m going to hold off rambling about it too much, because I have enough of that in the next post. (Stay tuned!) Lol!! 😂 😁 But yay for summer!!
My theme for this month, is…
🍉 Watermelon!! 🍉
This was super fun to do, and I was even eating watermelon while I was making it! 😀 🍉 Fun times!
First, we have the cover page, calendar, goals (which I haven’t written yet… XD) and my word of the month, which is diligence. 😀 😁
For my mood tracker, I did a bunch of little watermelons, and for the habit tracker I just did a SUPER simple one. I’ll probably go over it, and spice it up later… It’s kind of boring right now! XD
A Line a Day (where I write a bit about my day, each day) and a sleep tracker. This is my first time doing a sleep tracker, so we’ll see how that goes!! And again, these pages are slightly boring, but oh well… At least it’s functional! Lol. 😄
And as always, my absolute favorite spread…..!!!! The books I’m reading, my blog and youtube post tracker, and my Bible reading tracker!! Love it. Lol! 😂 😁
And lastly, my weekly spreads. It’s super pretty, but it doesn’t need to be, so. Haha! 😁
And that’s that! Thank you all so much for reading this post. ❤ I enjoyed doing this set up, and I’m super excited to use it. I love new months!!! 😀
Rosy 🌻 🍉 ❤️
How was your month? Do you have any plans for July? What’s your favorite part of summer?
P.S. Here’s a fun little thing for you guys! How many points did you get?!! I think I have 12. 😄 😁
Hey everyone!! IT’S JUNE!!! That’s just sooo crazy. 2021 is going by SO fast!!! Every time we reach a new month, it just blows me away…! LOL!
Anyway, my bullet journal theme for June was….
I’ve already actually done this theme in my old bullet journal, but that was before I’d really got into bullet journaling, and I was still figuring things out, so I really wanted to it again! Besides, it so pretty, that I may even want to do it yet again in the future. PLUS, I had some super cute succulent stickers that I wanted to use!! I really enjoyed setting up this month.
I think the cover page turned out lovely! (And no, I don’t have 0 goals for June… I just hadn’t written yet.) And my word for the month is humility, something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. I pray that God will teach me humility this month especially (and always!) cause man, I need it! 🤣
I really love how the habit tracker, but I really don’t like the mood tracker… Oh well, I’ll survive, LOL! 😂
Possibly my favorite spread this month, as it has lots to do with reading!! And plus, I love how it turned out aesthetically. 😍
The first page is good, but the second page…..??? Um, let’s just say it’s in need of some help. It’s really messed up, and I haven’t thought of a good way to fix it yet. (the playlist page, which is just going to be a list of my favorite songs in June) Y’all have any thoughts or ideas for that?
Lastly, here is my weekly/daily spread. Super simple and functional as usual. 😀 Some people like to do super amazing, pretty weekly logs, which are so beautiful and awesome, but not nearly as functional and take so long to do. I used to do that, but now I realized it much easier and practical to do something a bit more simple, just because that’s what works best for me. Of course, you can do it however you feel works best for you!! 😀
And there you have it!! I love how (most) everything turned out, and I’m enjoying using it. I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and I’ll see you again soon for mo June Recap, hopefully soon!
HAPPY JUNE, and have a great month!!!!!!
~Rosy 💖 🌻
How was your May? Do you have any plans for June? (I love comments!!!) 😛 😁
Hey everybody! I’m finally here with my May Bujo set up. 😀
This time I again tried to cut down on pages, even more than last time, to save pages and make my journal last longer. 😉 I did the whole thing in only a few pages! Thus, the whole set up didn’t take me as long as usual to complete, and I like it that way. (Because I don’t have time to spend 5 years working on spreads for one month. Haha!) 🤣
May’s theme is…..
I’ve been wanted to use this as a theme, well, ever since I bought some really pretty butterfly sticker on amazon. 😂
And yeah, let’s just get into it!! 😀
The May cover page is similar to my April cover page. I just liked it so much, I had to do it again! I really love how it turned out – it looks so cheerful and spring-y!! 💙 🦋
Next up, are my goals for May, my word of the month (Servant), habit tracker, and mood tracker. I told you guys I was using less pages! Normally, each of those would take a whole page, haha!
Now we have maybe my favorite page (it’s tied with all the other pages), my book tracker, and a Line a Day. (Where I simply write a line about my day, each day.) 😀
A few more trackers (Social tracker, Bible Reading, and Goals and Rewards. And yes, I know that I haven’t finished the Goals and Rewards section. Still trying to think of rewards! Any ideas???)
After that, the only spread left to share is my daily spread. Super simple and functional. 😀
And that’s it for my bullet journal this month, folks! I hope you guys enjoyed!
And there’s just one more thing I wanted to add in. This has absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this post, but a few days ago when I posted my April Recap, I missed something very important! Some thing that was a lot of fun, and I don’t know how I ever could have ever missed it! Lol. XD
So I’m just going to call this section, April Recap, Part 2. 😂
Around mid-April, our family went with another family up to the mountains to visit another family. (Ok sorry, that was a slightly confusing sentence! Just read it again, until you get it.) 😉 LOL!
We went with the Garcia family, and we visited a man named Juan and his family, who lives a few hours away, far from civilization. (Well, not really far, but it feels far since it takes so long to get there because of the roads, lol!)
We got there for around lunch time, and we brought hot dogs for lunch. We used our special invention to cook them over the fire. (our special invention being chicken wire, which we lay about 20 hot dogs on top of, over the fire, to cook a bunch of them at once and save time!) XD If that didn’t make sense, see the photo below. I’m sorry, I’m bad at explaining things. LOL! 😂
After lunch, we all decided do go on a hike. We drove a little ways to a good starting place, and then off we went!
The Mountains are so pretty!!
On the way, we came across this wall/cliff made of white sand. Everyone else probably thought, “oh, a wall of White sand! Cool, and bye.” but Lizzie and I thought, “Oh, a wall of white sand! LET’S CLIMB IT!” So we did.
(And I definitely did not rip my skirt twice in the process…. Don’t worry, it’s fixed now) 😉 🤣
We got stuck half way to the top, and couldn’t go any farther because there were no branches to hang on to. So we did the next logical thing, and slid all the way to the bottom (Filling our shoes with dirt) and into the tiny stream below (thereby filling them with water. THEREBY! We were muddy.) LOL! 😂 🤣
After walking 37 miles (or 1 1/2 I guess maybe), we reached our destination – a small (but large for the area) pool of water. 😀
After spending a little while there, talking and wading in the water *trying* to catch the fish, we headed back.
(And I most certainly was not so thirsty on the way back that I drank some of the stream water.) Hey, it was (mostly) clear!!! LOL! 🤣🤣🤣
When we got back to Juan’s house, we had a little bit of Bible reading and singing time which was great. 😀
And there y’all have it, folks! 😀 It was a great time, and believe me, we got home tired, lol! XD I hope you guys enjoyed the photos, and I’ll see you in my next post! I hope everyone is having a great day. 💕
IT’S APRIL!!!! Wow, last month just MARCHED right on by didn’t it? *smiles mischievously* LOL. 😂
But for real, it’s hard to believe it’s already the 4th month of 2021. (And yes, I’m shocked and stunned each and every time a new month comes. But I love it.) 😂 🤣
Anyhow, my theme for this month’s bullet journal spread, is….
I’ve been wanting to use this theme, probably ever since I started my journal. It was so much fun to do, and this is probably my favorite of all the themes I’ve used so far!!! (It’s right up there with the rainbow one from January.) 😀
I don’t usually use acrylic paint in my bullet journal, but I did this time to get the galaxy effect. It worked pretty well!! Also, I wanted to use less pages than I sometimes do, so that I can use my journal longer, so I only did a mini calendar. I’m not completely sure how well I did at using less pages, but oh well. LOL!
Some of my goals for the month, and my word of the month. On the goals page, I just realized I didn’t quite finish one of the sentences. It’s supposed to say No Spend (Unless necessary) Haha! 😂
Mood Tracker, and Habit Tracker. Incase you’re wondering what all those symbals on the habit tracker mean, they are, in order-
-Get up before 7
-Drink plenty or water
-Practice musical instruments
-Wash face and brush teeth.
I had fun coming up with each symbol!
A gratitude log, and some of the books I’m reading/planning on reading this month.
A whole bunch of random trackers! A blog and Youtube post tracker, birthday, movies, paintings, Bible reading, Goals and Rewards, etc… 😀 And I just realized I put a tracker for things I bought, when I just decided to try and not buy anything a few pages ago… Oops, lol! 🤣
And there you have it! I really, really enjoyed making each page, and I’m excited to use them! I hope these pages inspired you! 😀
Also, stay tuned for a March Recap hopefully before long!
~Rosy 💖 🌻
How was your March? Do you have any plans for April?
I’m sorry I’m a little late with this post. 🙂 But I finally finished my March bullet journal spreads! Speaking of…. Can you guys even believe it’s March?!?!?!?!? I can’t. Wow. 😂😂😂
This month’s theme is…..
I’ve been wanting to use this theme for quite a while, and I’m finally doing it. XD I also decided to make my spreads fairly minimalistic, unlike what I usually do. And if I used color, it was a light purple or blue. 🙂
The cover page! And a few random goals for this month. 🙂
The calendar page. I really like this.
The word of the month page, and a gratitude log! My word of the month for March is Joy. 🙂
Guys, I just want to say. That habit tracker took me SO. LONG. So long. Never again people, never again. Nevertheless, I love how it turned out!! And the mood tracker is also different from what I normally do. The different notes signify different moods, and I also tied a stress tracker in there! The higher the note, the more stressful the day was, and vice versa. I wonder if this would be playable at the end of the month…. That would be SO fun to “play my month”, lol!!
A tracker for my blog and youtube channel, and a page for the cooks I’m reading. I didn’t read a whole lot in February, but I’m hoping to read a lot more this month!!
Some random little trackers, that I didn’t feel like needed their own page.
And lastly, my weekly spreads. If you notice, I didn’t go through and write the date on the days. The reason for that is, sometimes I skip a day, and that littler box gets wasted, and after a while, all the little wasted spots add of to a lot. This way, I can just write in the day whenever I use it! (Thanks to my friend Emma for this little piece of ingenuity.) 😁 👌
Wow, for being “minimalistic” these pages sure took a while, haha! I am quite pleased with the end result though. 🙂 It’s different than what I normally do, and I like different. (In this case at least, haha!)
I hope these pages were inspiring to you, and that you enjoyed looking through them!
Y’all comment below, and tell me how your February was, and if you have any plans for March! My family is planning to visit my grandparent’s in Coahuila, Mexico, and after that, our grandparents from Colorado are coming to visit us. 😀 We’re very excited! 😋
IT’S FEBRUARY!!! Well, actually it’s not. Yet. TWO MORE DAYS! 😀 It’s hard to believe the first month of 2021 is over. Well, technically not, but practically!😂
Ok I’ll stop now, LOL.
This months Bujo theme is……
SO unoriginal, I know. I’m sure you guys are shocked that I would even think of such a thing for February.
Ok, all sarcasm aside….. I know that this is a super unoriginal theme for February, and I was planning on doing something else at first. However, I just decided that I felt like doing hearts and everything, so I’m doin’ it. (Even though probably 53,490 people have probably already done it before!) 😂 😜
Ok, so here is the cover page, and a Bible verse that I thought fit well with the theme.
After that, I have my February calendar. I messed up on the edge of the second page, so I just decided to cut it off, and try a dutch door for the first time. 🙂 I think it turned out pretty good.
On the other side of the dutch door, I have random trackers, and then a mood tracker.
My habit tracker… 😀 I used a similar design as I did last month, because it worked really well for me.
And I gratitude log, where I shall *attempt* to write down something I’m thankful for each day.
I made a Blog and Youtube tracker to track my posts, as well as a page to track the books I’m reading.
And lastly, here is the first of my weekly spread. Yes, I am very aware that I spelled “February” wrong on this page. And yes, it bothers me tremendously. Lol! XD
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Feel free to copy anything I do in you own journal. 😀
I’m really excited for February, and I hope y’all have a great month!!
