Yay, February, finally the January blues are gone and we can all look forward to the rest of the year. This month I have been watching a lot of Anna Brim's (Mrs Brimbles) patreon videos on creating watercolour animal paintings using watercolour. You can join in here on Anna's patreon page.
Self care is a BIG deal! We sometimes forget that a bit of 'me time' can lead to far better productivity and mental health. I decided to create a Bujo self care spread in my Bullet Journal to help remind me to make time for at least 3 self care things for myself a month... that's not too difficult is it? Well yes actually, I already failed at the first two I listed for January as I ran out of free time with work. I must do better!

Have you just got in to Bullet Journals and Bujo Planning and are stuck for creative inspiration and layout ideas or what to track and log? Below are some of my favourite layouts and bullet journal spreads that might help to give you a spark. All these pages were created using inserts from the wonderful Travelers Times on Etsy.

Bullet Journal Tracking and Lists Pages:
These are all pages from my own bullet journal / bujo lists journal.
Yay, it's officially Spring take a look at at what I've been up to with my creative planning, journaling, BUJO and art work for March in my travelers notebooks, Uglydori planner and Lyradori art journals, including my Spring Bucket List in my bullet journal as part of the Planner Girls Collective series.
I've had quite a few people ask me what I put in my bujo / lists / bullet journal, so thought I would do a quick post to give you some ideas for what to put into yours. Mine is in no way or means perfect and it's not a 'true' bullet journal. It does follow a bujo style, but also has lists, my favourite things and other ideas you may or may not want to try. All these pages were created using inserts from the wonderful Travelers Times on Etsy.
How I track my blog and social media stats:
Part of my planning this year is focused on my blog planning and productivity within my blog and You Tube channel. I have spent a lot of time since September building up my blog, social media and You Tube channel, so decided to use one of my planners as a blog planner to plan my posts, filming and editing schedule and to track my site stats and to set Monthly goals. It has helped immensely with my productivity and it's a great way to see how my blog and social media presence is progressing each month.
For the last two weeks I have been experimenting with my layouts in my travelers notebook and trying to get a balance between pretty layouts, functionality and bujo/bullet journaling style weekly spreads. I have used a mixture of hand drawn layouts, doodles and stickers.
What planner layouts worked and how I have adapted them
I first started planning in September 2015, but it wasn't a passion until January 2016 when I bought my first real planner; A Carpe Diem in coral. I must say I loved using it, but it was more aesthetic than anything else and didn't really work for me as planner. 1. It was too big and didn't ever leave the house with me. 2. I discovered my love for notebooks and wanted to move to a travelers notebook / bullet journaling system (indeed I have - see my post here). 3. I was writing things in after I had done them rather than using it to actually plan.
