Another month has come to an end and of course that means a new monthly set up in my bullet journal! Yay! I can't believe that December is already here and that Christmas is only 24 nights away! Super excited about it! In today's post I'm going to share with you the basic pages and spreads I've created for the last month of the year. I have created more Christmas related spreads, and I might dedicate another post in order to share them with you. So, without further ado, let's dive in!
For the first page of the month I wanted something sweet and cute, and in the end I decided to go with a snow globe. I love snow globes - they are so whimsical and magical! And I was pretty pleased with the way the drawing turned out.
In the next two pages I'm going to have a spread for the Christmas Countdown! It's also the #doodlewithusindecember Instagram Challenge created by me and Alexandra (from @alexandra_plans). If you want to take part, you can find all the prompts here. I've already marked how my boxes will look like for the next days and here's day 1 with the prompt 'Stocking'.
After that I have my monthly spread, which I really like how festive it looks. I'm sure that soon it will be filled with Christmas related events and fairs. I'm going to London for New Year's as well, and I thought I'd mark this down with a few doodles.
I love how my December header turned out! How cute is this snowman??!!
** By the way, would you be interested if I created stickers with similar headers for the various spreads of the bullet journal?? Let me know in the comments below ;) **
The next spread was dedicated to my November Review and my December Focus. I'm only sharing with you the two headers that I've created, because I wanted to write some very personal things in these two pages. But you get the idea. I just included my Big Wins, What Didn't Work and How I'll Improve categories for November. And for the focus part, I just wrote how and what I should do in each week of December. (It's pretty similar to my November Focus if you want to see here.)
Then I started with my first weekly, that I tried to make as festive as possible with the little headers. And I continued the Christmas theme in my dailies as well.
I've been enjoying the vertical layout for my dailies. It's functional and practical and I can create 7 days in advance (usually on Sundays that I create my weekly spreads).
You might have noticed that I didn't add a Gratitude spread for this month. That's because I wanted to try and write my daily gratitude in each daily spread. I think it's going to work better, because I always forget to go back to the gratitude page and fill it up at the end of the day. I'll let you know how this will go ;)
So, there you have it. This is my monthly set up for December. How did you decorate yours, and what changes did you do?
Have an amazing month full of lovely memories!
