I’ve been a little planner and list fanatic since I can remember – I’ve been journaling since I can remember as well.
Unfortunately, most planners that you can buy turned out to be insufficient – there was not enough space or it was lacking space or simply didn’t cater to my needs. I soon started adding my own spreads to store-bought planners and journals and customizing them. When the bullet journal trend erupted, naturally, I was intrigued and utilized these possibilities quickly. For the longest time, I didn’t really do much with it, I went about it the most pragmatic way possible, printed out trackers and spreads that I needed and added them to my normal journal. It was far from pretty or artsy, but very useful. After doing that for a few months and years, I learned which spreads and trackers I really utilize and need and which are not for me. I was ready for the next step.
Hubby was so nice and bought me my first “real” bullet journal and I started to draw spreads, trackers etc. myself instead of printing them out and started decorating and drawing, too.
Today, I want to show you my first “real” monthly overview and spreads that I did.
