Bullet journalling has been a great thing for me. When I first started last month I wondered if I would keep it up and so far I have. I really enjoy using the habit tracker to hold me accountable for important things like my personal Bible time, eating well, drinking enough water, and getting in bed at a decent time. However, my new hobby was taking over the dining room. Then if I wanted to journal in the living room, I’d have to lug it all in there. Long story short, I got this cool little tote at Michael’s and loaded it up with my journaling and brush letting supplies.
It’s so handy ^___^
On top there is a removable tray that is full of my pens, washi tape, and more (full list below).
In the bottom I keep my journal and brush lettering practice book. I also keep a clipboard, my BuJo stencils, and my favorite set of colored pencils (Koh-I-Noor Progresso Woodless Color Pencils). I keep these in the box so nothing bad happens to them.
So what do I use in my bullet journal and for brush lettering? Better question might be ‘What don’t I use?’ LOL! I’ve been obsessed with craft and office supplies since I was old enough to doodle so I have amassed quite a collection.

What do I use all that stuff for exactly? I’ll show you some of the pages I’ve added to my BuJo since I last posted about it.
This gratitude spread is near the front so I see it often. I plan to make a list of praises and things I’m thankful for as the years go by. The sunflower is an acrylic painting I did a few years ago (tutorial) that was hiding in my mixed media book. I rescued it and glued it in to cover the first Sponsored Posts & Reviews page I didn’t like.
I redid my Sponsored Posts & Reviews page for several reasons. Mainly I messed up the first one’s header and it was driving me CRAZY! I decided to move it to the back where I’ll be adding my review product notes so they aren’t scattered between my weekly and monthly pages.
Also in the back is this swatch page for my colored pencils. The wraps are deceiving on some of the Koh-I-Noor pencils so this helps me see which one will go best with the project I’m working on as well as matching them to the washi tape.
These are some of my one-page weekly spreads from the last few weeks.
I also started on the March section and did this for the title page. I love how the wreath, March and days of the week turned out, but I’m not at all happy with the numbers. Calligraphy numbers should only be attempted by experienced brush calligraphers, which I am NOT! I should have gone with a simple contrasting font. My bad.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great week!
