this was my first ever weekly spread, I basically just went for it. events, to do's, journalling and I started documenting the weather and what I eat even then, something I keep up until this day.
and then the boxes came. I'm a very neat person, so I like borders and stuff. I quickly figured out what my weekly spreads need to include:
- weekly overview of tasks & events
- tracking weather & what I ate
- events & to do's
- space for journalling
as you see I printed off some photos on sticky paper, went back and decorated or put them to the actual day it happened. this is something I like to do when I find the time, to give it more of a scrapbook-feel.
so I've switched up the boxes to fit in more prompts, as well as a weekly to do list. also went all out artsy with water colours and felt pens. having a colourful spread does make it more fun to look at!
these are my two most beautiful spreads, in my humble opinion. the first being minimal black & white, and the second one built around the robin artwork.
I always refused to spread the week into two, but it just makes sense. I have seen a lot of people do this with events/appointments: have a seperate column of the week for those, and another list of days for the upcoming daily tasks. and it all came together nicely, it's a lot cleaner, clearer and more structured.
so here we are, at my current weekly spread for next week. tasks & events on the left, documenting weather and food on the right, as well as a weekly to-do and space for memories & journalling. I like to stick with one or two colours combined with a simple black pen. the lemon inspiration came from miss loui's youtube video, because she is my absolute bujo-queen at the moment!
hope you enjoyed, I'm still in love with the bullet journal system.
you can simply flip the page and pour out whatever's on your mind!
