Hello everyone! 😘
I know it’s been a while but I’m finally back with another plan with me blog post!
September is almost over and I’ve finally finished setting up my bullet journal for October. I have a confession to make. I didn’t use my bullet journal in August and most of September and I have to say that my productivity was highly affected!! I really missed planning in it and being organised with all my to-dos, so I'm more than ready to start using it again!
The theme that I went with for October is ‘Mushrooms’. 🍄 I find mushrooms cute, and very tasty (!) and I’m really happy with the way my pages turned out.
Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the post, because there's also a video, where I'm showing you exactly how I've created each spread.
For the front page of the month, I decided to create a mushroom house and lots of little mushrooms around it. I got inspired by the amazingly talented @manka_kasha. I can literally get lost in her drawings. I highly suggest that you check her work out. It’s amazing! I love how the front page turned out and I’m glad that didn’t use the traditional more warm colours that you usually associate with autumn. Instead I’ve opted for more cool blues and greys.
Next comes my Monthly Layout. I used my usual grid for the monthly layout and I’ve also added a to-do list on the left for each week. I like when I am able to allocate specific tasks for each week of the month. I find that I am more productive and that I’m actually getting things done, this way.
Each square is 7x7. I’ve also added lots of mushrooms and a shy hedgehog at the bottom! 🍄
Lastly, I’ve created the first weekly of the month. I decided to use a new layout that I got inspiration from the lovely Boho Berry. But I’ve made some changes and I’ve adjusted it to suit my day to day needs. As you can see, I made a mistake with the days. In order to fix it, I just stroked though it and added the right day on top. 😃 How do you deal with mistakes in your bullet journal? If you’re interested, I have this and that blog post talking all about them! 😃
Also, I love how the little snail turned out in this page! 🐌
And that is my bullet journal monthly setup for October. I hope you liked it and that you’ve found some inspiration and ideas to setup your own. Let me know in the comments below what theme you’ve chosen for this month.
