Hello, May! It’s a new month and that means, new bullet journal setup. 😉
After last month’s blue tiles, I wanted something simple and a bit minimal this month. So I’m going with a black and white theme. And what better way to accompany that than to include pandas in the mix!
I found a panda illustration in Pinterest and thought it would be a great cover page. Aside from the illustration and month title, I left this page mostly blank.
– UniPin Fineliner 0.8 to outline the panda
– Tombow Dual Brush Pen N15 to color in the panda
– Alphabet Clear Stamp for the month title
WEEK 1 (May 1 – 3)
I am skipping the monthly calendar and going straight to the first week. Since I use the calendar for meal planning, I decided to incorporate that on a weekly basis instead. Since there’s only 3 days left in this week, I will have quite a large space to fill in and so starting from the bottom of the page, is my meal planner. On top of that, I added another cute panda illustration from Pinterest and beside that is my daily/weekly task list. That’s another thing I changed this month – is this sort of a running task list/habit tracker.
– UniPin Fineliner 0.8 to outline the panda illustration
– Everyday Explorers Stamps for week # and month
– Calendar Stamp
– Typewriter Alphabet Stamps
– Typewriter Number Stamps
– Black Memento Stamp Ink
– Moonlight White Brilliance Ink Pad
– Panda Stamp Set
I am leaving the adjacent page blank for some journaling. Since I’ve been stuck at home for almost 2 months with not much to do, I looked for journaling prompts that would help me journal more. I found and interesting one from marcandangel.com entitled 31 Morning Journaling Prompts That Will Change the Way You Think. I think this exercise will reveal some thoughts on my past, present and future state of mind. It’s something new to do, so I’m giving it a try. 😉
WEEK 2 (May 4 – 9)
The second week, and probably the weeks after, will have somewhat the same layout. As mentioned, I wanted it to be simple and with very minimal upkeep so I can concentrate on the journaling part. This week is an expanded version of Week 1. I only added a panda sticker in the little blank space right below the calendar. And that’s it! 😜 [Same supplies used as the last]
