PSA: Planner vs. Bullet Journal vs. Normal Journaling

PSA: Planner vs. Bullet Journal vs. Normal Journaling // Our Journey in Journals

Something I see that confuses both people who do and people who don't is the difference between a planner, a bullet journal, and just a normal journal. A little egotistically, I consider myself to be somewhat of an expert on all three, so in today's installment of my "PSA" series, I'll be explaining each one of these words and how they relate to each other.

February 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

February 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

Now that it's almost the end of the month, it's time for next month's bullet journal setup! I tend to procrastinate my monthly setups till the last two or so days prior to the new month, but this month, I had the opportunity to guest post on the Sakura of America Instagram page about bullet journaling!!! This is especially exciting for me because Sakura Gelly Rolls and the brand as a whole are really what got me into stationery and initially led me to calligraphy (and later to the bullet journal system). Anyway, this is relevant because it means I had to actually set up for February at a reasonable time. So, here is my February 2018 bullet journal setup!

Working Through a Bullet Journal Slump

Working Through a Bullet Journal Slump // Our Journey in Journals
Hey, everyone! This topic may be a little sad, but today I'm going to be talking about working through a bullet journal slump (as you've  garnered already from the post title). I feel like probably almost every avid bullet journalist goes through some period--or multiple periods--of time where they just really don't enjoy bullet journaling anymore and don't feel like doing it. I'm going to be talking about my own experiences and what to do if you're in a bujo slump, and I hope I can also help out any of you guys out there who are in one right now.

PSA: Embossing vs. Debossing

PSA: Embossing vs. Debossing
I started a series last year (it feels weird to say that . . .) called "PSA" where I would explain common misconceptions about bullet journaling, calligraphy, or just stationery in general. Today's installment is about the difference between embossing and debossing. These are both embellishing techniques and are related in a way, but they're the opposite of each other.

January 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

January 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

Ahhh!!!! It's almost 2018!! For me personally, I'm not starting a new bullet journal for the New Year for reasons I discussed in a blog post on whether or not you should do the same. So, my bujo setup for this month is actually fairly similar to my normal setups.

First of all, here is my completed December monthly spread (if you want to see how it looked like at the beginning of the month, then check out my setup post from last month). Anyway, without any further ado, here is my setup for January and for 2018!

Should You Start a New Bullet Journal for the New Year?

Should You Start a New Bullet Journal for the New Year?

At this time of year, I see this same question pop up over and over again in the various bullet journal Facebook groups that I am in: should you start a new bullet journal for the New Year? Today, I'll be giving my opinion on the topic (and the opinions of other people that I've collected - special thanks to the lovely people in the Boho Berry Tribe!) and shed some light on why or why not you might want to enter a new notebook for 2018 (or whatever year, dear reader, that you happen to be entering at this particular time).
