November is here! Where has the year gone by? I can’t believe 2019 is almost at its end—it seems like just yesterday it was just April… Anyhow, fall is now in full swing and the bounty that comes with this season is always something I look forward to. See how I’ve incorporated these things into my journal this month~
Spooky season is here, and it’s right here in my bullet journal! October 2019’s spreads are extremely exciting for me; I love all things cryptic, supernatural, and magical and I was more than happy to include these vibes in this month. Please enjoy my journal and help yourself to the downloadable sticker printables.
Hi everyone, here’s another opportunity to see my bullet journal! Here are September’s spreads, they’ve arrived a bit late because I just came back from vacation. As always, the printables are free available in the link below.
Hi all! I haven’t posted April-June since I’ve been incredibly busy. By the time I could take pictures of those months… they were already filled up with my personal entries. As a result, we’re going straight to the upcoming month, July! This is the first month in my new Minimalism Art City Notebook (review here).
You’ll notice that I kept the exact same format from my last bullet journal post! These layouts have worked well for me and it was easy to translate them from a Rhodia to Minimialism Art’s dot grid pages.
Available for download: make your own stickers or print on regular paper to paste into your own journal! The dimensions are the same as what’s seen in my A5 journal.
My bullet journal starts in July, which is approaching fast! I’m trying to minimize purchases and am using any opportunity to save money. Though content with my current one, I do like changing it up… So, I bought Minimalism Art’s City Edition Journal on Amazon. I also had the opportunity to try their Premium Journal when they offered to send it to me after I’d joined their mailing list. Here is an honest review of the two journals.
PLEASE NOTE: Images may look a bit dark, as they’ve been left unaltered to reflect the true colors and opacity of the pages. I tried taking these photos in the best natural lighting I had available.
Throughout the long school breaks, I lay out as many upcoming months in my bullet journal so I don’t worry about setting up spreads needed during the semester. I managed to complete through March, which is when my Spring Break begins (when I’ll lay out April and onward.
Above are the “stickers” I used for February and March, with a few stickers for New Year’s and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. When printed at 100% scale, they’ll be the same size as seen in my own journal below. Download these PDFs here for free (for personal use only):

How I make these PDFs:
Grab images from various sources (Google, Instagram, Pinterest)
Paste them into a Blank Document in Pages or Microsoft Word
Edit images to the correct size or color needed to match my washi tape
Print them on regular paper, cut them out, and tape them into my bujo—however, you can save time by printing on special sticky-backed paper, like this Avery Sticker Paper 20-pack from Amazon.

With 2018 drawing to a close, I’d like to spotlight this neat little journal which I’ve been using to supplement my bullet journaling. It provides daily questions which, when used daily, is a nice reflection of those years once they’ve been filled up. I started this in January 2017 and managed to keep up with it, despite needing to go back a week to fill it in a few times.
Published by Potter Style, Q&A a Day: 5-Year Journal has beautiful gilded pages that caught my eye in Barnes & Nobles last year. Behind its simplistic paper covering and stylishly lettered title are 365 questions for you to answer throughout the year. The layout makes it easy for a person to start any year on any month since you fill in the last two numbers following ’20__’ before writing down your answer.
It’s almost the end of the year and bujoers abound have begun prepping for 2019. A popular practice is starting a fresh journal in January, which lasts the whole year… this means creating a Future Log that includes all 12 months. Here are some free printables I created with all the months of 2019, for those who don’t want to write it by hand. Read further for links!
So… I don’t actually start a new journal in January! My journal does last the 12 months, but it starts in July and ends June the following year. This is convenient because, as a student, summer is when I’m most free to begin a new journal. When setting up my current Future Log (which goes into 2019), I printed the months instead of writing by hand; I like the clean look, and it fits well in the 2nd premade spread in Rhodia’s Goalbook (above). Since the New Year is coming up, I thought to share these Printables with the Bujo community.
