Plan with Me - March 2019 | Wendolonia

I started bullet journaling to keep myself organized a looooooong time ago. Five years ago, to be exact. Since then, I’ve been more or less devoted to it at various times. I find that my planning is pretty sparse during the summer months in particular. But like so many people the new year always gives me a spark of organization and I always recommit to my planning ways.

This year when I rededicated myself to my Bujo — as we bullet journal obsessed refer to it — I took a few minutes to think about how I wanted to use my journal. In particular, I’ve been looking for a place to do more sketching and painting and I was hoping to be able to combine that with my daily planner pages.

When I looked around for a planner that could handle both types of pages, I found the Archer & Olive journal. This book has 160gsm paper that promises no ghosting or bleeding through with most pens, inks and even paints. Perfect!

While I waited for my new journal to arrive, I dug into Pinterest for new layout ideas and I found a billion or so. It was so inspiring that I decided to move away from my boring, old practical bullet journal and try doing some more of the pretty doodle-y stuff I was finding online.

My first full monthly and weekly spread in my bullet journal had a daisy theme and it was super fun to put together. Watch me draw it out in this video:

Traveler's Notebook Layout: Jump - Wendolonia

Today I’m sharing a quick layout I made in my most recent traveler’s notebook — a page about Augie and his buddy jumping on our new trampoline!

I walk you through my process in the video below:

If you don’t want to watch the video, here is a quick run-down of how I put the page together:

Traveler's Notebook Layout: Jump - Wendolonia

I started off by selecting a pretty simple spread in my most recent Studio Calico traveler’s notebook (from the December 2018 kit). The left side was pre-printed with a simple blue stripe and the right side had a grid pattern. I used a nice solid alphabet to stamp the word “jump” all over the grid side in teal and light blue ink. Then I taped down the photos which were all about 2 x 3 inches.

I added some simple journaling on a few tickets that were included with the same Studio Calico kit (not a lot to say about kids jumping on a trampoline). Finally, I pulled some dimensional stickers from my stash and added them to the layout in three clusters to form a visual triangle.

Yesterday was Wyatt’s 14th birthday so I made him this fun Rick and Morty Card. Do you know how hard it is to find a pre-made Rick and Morty card? It’s pretty hard! But no worries — I had fun painting a portal background and making a couple figures by printing and coloring them with […]

The kids are just wrapping up their last day of school (they’ll be home any minute!) and barring any unforeseen playground disasters, I think it’s safe to say we had a pretty good week.  And I think my back-to-school lunch game was pretty strong, if I do say so myself! Here are the lunches the […]

August 21, 2017

Today was the first day of school for my boys and it was the day of the big eclipse that went all the way across North America (and parts of South and Central America too). We were all very excited — or maybe it was just me — and after a reminder from a friend, […]
