Hello Foxy - S1706

This is super cute set. I wanted to do something completely different this month. My sister has been talking to me about Bullet Journals - a new popular type of diary journals, and this set is PERFECT for this type new hobby. Stamping in your Bullet Journal with Close to My Heart Stamps is a great use of our stamps. Making it easier to be creative with the journalling. 

Google Search says "The Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above."

A really interesting article from Marie Claire is linked here to explain it and show some videos. There are lots of Pinterest boards, and YouTube clips and Blogs about Bullet Journalling. 

Using Black Memento™ Ink Pad, Marvy® Uchida® LePen™ Journaling Penand the blocks with the flowers and wreath, I stamped onto a notepad to get a sense of how it will work and this will be my sample. Once I decide on what I want to put into my journal I will find a nice bound note book to enter this into, lots of the info I read about this is to not use an expensive journal just a cheap notepad. You can use sticky notes to find your most used pages. .

I stamped the wreath and it makes a perfect heading.
Then each of the flowers make a great bullet point (hence the name bullet journalling).

One of my goals is to drink more water and in the bullet journal you can track things, like drinking water. So after the main page I created a diary of days with 8 flowers per day to represent the 8 glasses of water I want to drink. The idea is to colour in each flower to show each glass of water that is drunk.

Using a highlighter I coloured in some water "flowers" to show this.

Then I can go back to my main goal page and colour in that goal. 
Lots of bullet journals have indexes at the front and then you can add page numbers and add whatever you'd like to your bullet journal.

I really see why its taking off as a new fad. Its a fun way to record all sorts of information. 
Some of the things I think I'll record is - movies I've watched, Books I've read, Podcasts I've listened to, Netflix, Further Goals, Blessings (gratitude journal 10 things everyday I'm thankful for), To-Do list, organising my decluttering, Days I've crafted or created art (and what I've created), Graphs. Days without buying work lunches (bringing lunch from home), 

These planner bundles give you a diary base with plenty of room to add extra things into it. Using the flowers as bullet points means you can colour them in as you complete them. 

You could use the flowers for savings goals, weight loss goals, drinking water, days without take-away/junk-food, exercise goals, phone calls for your business, number of nights you eat with your family, or read to your children.

You could laminate a selection of the flowers and your list- I'm thinking for my kids before school, to-do list, each day my daughter could colour in with whiteboard marker on the laminated sheets each flower once she had completed her list.

I found this list on Pinterest but the link to it doesn't appear to be working. Put the search into Pinterest to find this list. "Bullet Journal Goals".
