Memo, Mail etc...
Decided to join in again with Sian over at FROM HIGH IN THE SKY.
'Cos a couple of days ago I got some fabulous Snail Mail... surprise Snail Mail.
I didn't take a photo of it, but I showed it off over at our Happy Mail
FB page like this:
It looks all fancy 'cos I did it like this for my Instagram feed. SOZZY
to those folks who've already seen it over there :)
And that there is my first attempt at a BUJO or Bullet Journal.
I'm in loooooove!!!!
Here's some links for them:
Mine is all over the show. I'm ONLY using notebooks I've got
sitting around home. This is the Stash Busting Year, after all!
But anyways, here's a bit of what I've done so far.
This is my favourite! I'm tracking 3 things I want to
get better at & be more consistent with:
Right at the bottom I've got my 'score' for January, so I can see if I
improve this current month! It's really working for me, so far.
RIDER: The eat sweets column? That's eating them AFTER TEA
only!!! HAHA...should see me gutsing them during the day cos
I know I can't eat 'em at night now....!!!!!!!
I had bits of paper, notes on my iPhone, some on my notice board,
some in my purse....so now at least all my books I've heard about or
want to read are in one place!
The house work tracker [bit of a joke in my case!] will provide a giggle for
certain. I proudly do NOT do it if I can help it. My mother is askance at my
'tude......but too bad! Anyways, I do it so little that I forget what I've done
when so this is rather helpful!!!
Same with my blogging this year. It's a bit hit & miss & my old system, since
I'm not doing DT work, I've ditched & the bujo is an easy replacement to keep
The notes are just that. Some ideas, mostly not followed through. But at
least now I've got somewhere to jot them!
Below is my gratitude page I haven't started. Just having fun with stuff.
I ain't no artist, but I like doing this!
This is the first of my gratitude pages. I do it when I think of something
that fits. So it's not everyday. That stops any pressure. And it is nice to
read back on, 'cos it's like a quick snap of what was going on at that time.
Which is why I add the date when I make an entry.
I've been experimenting with different pens, markers, writing styles.
I'm completely a confused personality when it comes to writing & can do
lots of styles..... one day I guess I'll pick one??!!!!
You can see here I've been working out how to make my columns
more efficient. I'm not really a 'logical' thinker, so it takes more. I mean.
Graphs are maths, right? And I don't 'do' maths!! OR math. Whatever!!!
I probably won't bother showing you any more of this again, but if you're a
list maker and like crossing off stuff when you do it....then 'Bullets Journals'
might be a thing to consider.
Gotta leave you with a LO!!!
Using my fountain pen for journaling again:)
And 'V's for my 'A's...
A Funky Flair with an older one, & some Kaiser Craft die cuts from
the Kitaholics Kit...
A little subtle stenciling with texture paste [added paint for the colour] on the
background & to add some of 'me' to this Kaiser Craft pp. Sometimes I find this
type of pp difficult to use, but I got there!
Oh~ And my Mum is still in hospital, but her hip operation went well. The recovery
thing might take a bit, there's always a hiccup or two, I guess :)
Thanks for checking out my as usual rambling posts. Hope you find something
that tickles your fancy & gets those creative juices flowing!
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
