One of my favourite things at the minute to do is design and create things in my free time. A lot of them are never shown to anyone but myself but I love doing it and I am slowly but surely getting better I think. This year I am going to focus a lot of my time to making use of my bullet journal and putting my skills to the test. I have finally sorted out my 2019 bullet journal set-up and here it is!
These aren’t at the start of a brand new journal, they are actually half-way though a journal. I didn’t want to waste half a journal, so 2019 starts half-way through my current journal. For my cover page I decided on a simple 2019 in a leaf wreath. I am a fan of how it turned out but I wish I has change how I wrote the number nine because at times it looks like a seven. On the other side of the cover page I put a Year at a Glance section. I plan on using this to just flip back on when working out dates and also when designing my monthly spreads.
Key Dates and Events
One of the things I wanted to make sure I included at the start of my 2019 bullet journal was a double page spread about my key dates and events in 2019. I am terrible for forgetting things especially dates and events. I plan on using the key dates page for birthdays, anniversaries and holiday dates. The events page is where I am going to keep track of any concerts I am going to, theatre shows I am going to see, blogger events and books events I have. I hope I have enough room in each box to keep track but we will see as the year goes on!
Books Read and Yearly Goals
This is the last double page spread in my 2019 bullet journal set-up and I feel my favourite. I wanted a way to keep track of the books I read in 2019 on paper. I decided on a book shelf design to keep track of my reading because it is fun and added a pop of colour to the page. I read 60 books in 2019 so I added 60 books to the shelf. I don’t mind if I don’t fill each book as I am not going to push myself too much to read this year. The yearly goals page is the page I am going to use as the year goes on. I am going to add my goals to this but I am going to leave spaces for goals that I think of during the year. I am planning on writing a goal in each circle and if I achieve that goal I will colour in the circle.
That is my 2019 bullet journal set-up, is is simple but I feel that it will be effective for me. Have you got a bullet journal, if so what is your 2019 set-up like? Let me know in the comments!
