Can you believe that it is already December! I know where has this year gone. But I have had a super good year and I’ll be doing a wrap up of what I have gotten up to this year but today I want to show you how last week closed out and what next week is looking like. And for the more eagle-eyed amongst you may notice a bit of a difference from last week.
So you may have noticed that my layout has changed from last weeks post. This was mainly because I just did not get on with that layout so I started again and went with a vertical layout which is one that I come back to time and time again. It’s just the way my brain works. You should fight against what you know works and I have certainly learned this now.
I tend to plan chronologically when I plan a lot of the time you will see a timeline in my vertical inserts. Again this is just how my brain works and I can see how my day is looking and what tasks need to be done. I should really make myself some vertical hourly inserts. That may be a next year job.
I still did the highlight on the 1st because you know, had to be done! I like how I was still able to write over the top and get my to-do list in there. I also adapted these inserts so there was a bullet journal aspect between the weeks, here let me show you.
I want to start incorporating my bullet journal into my planner and this really worked this week so I am doing it again this week and I also have an extra sheet in there for my lettering challenges.
I also had enough space this week to have a little next week section. Which I have jotted a few tasks on. But I am still loving the set up in my planner that I will be sharing with you guys next week, so look out for that. Here is a look at this week kinda before the pen.
I’m using a lovely kit from Chocho and Mimi, you’ll notice that I have set it up kinda the same as last week and you actually notice that throughout this month as I have preplanned the whole of December so that I don’t have to worry about what I am doing each week and it also means that I am committed to this layout for the month! I have also set up the middle pages for my lettering challenges so that they are in this planner rather than a separate notebook.
I have noticed over the years with my planning is that if I don’t have it in the planner I am using then it tends to get ignored. Yes I know I have a mistake there but I am trying to embrace the mistakes rather this burning through paper in my planner. So expect a few more mistakes turning up.
On the back of that page, I have my Llamas Love Lettering Every Damn Day, I am just doing one style of font this month to get the hang of it and I may, in fact, do it in January as well, but slightly modify it. I’m excited to get my Filofax set up fine-tuned to fit my needs, which may end up by having very small but multiple sections! We shall see!
