Step-By-Step Christmas Weekly Bullet Journal Spread

With my last holiday themed step-by-step weekly spread being so successful, I thought I would create another one. This step-by-step tutorial gives the details needed to create a Christmas ornament weekly bullet journal spread. Since I plan digitally I use an iPad and the application GoodNotes and Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack from Amazon. If you are curious to why I plan digitally you should check out my blog post Switching to a Digital Planner-Paperless Planning.

Step #1: Weekly Layout

For this particular spread I used a horizontal layout that included space at the top for the ornaments, daily food trackers and space for any notes or to do lists. What is great about this weekly layout is that the empty space at the bottom allows for you to customize the layout and add habit trackers or any other element that you use in your weekly spreads. For this spread I recommend having a layout that has space large enough for the ornaments, I used mine as a header.

Step #2: Ornament Outline 

In this step you will draw the ornaments. This is where you can decide where to put them, how many you want and how large you want the ornaments to be. A tip to make it look more organic is to use different lengths for the strings and different sized ornaments. Instead of using all the traditional ball ornaments like I did you could use a variety of different shaped ornaments.

Step #3: Adding the details

This is the step where you can let your creative juices flow. Here is where you add the top to the ornaments. I chose to do two different tops. Now its time to decorate the ornaments. This is where you can really make this spread unique to your bullet journal style. For example, in my bullet journal I like straight lines and less of an organic doodle style. 

Step #4: Color

Lets add some color to these ornaments. I chose to go with the transitional red and green. In order to make it more interesting I used a variety of different red and green shades and also grey to add more depth. Another idea for this spread is to decorate all of the ornaments with snowflakes and use blues and grey as the color scheme. 

Step #6: Days of the week

In this final step the dates and days of the week are added to the spread. For the numerical dates I added a circle to represent an ornament. I also chose to use simple fonts in order to have the main focus of the spread to be on the ornaments. If your ornaments were more simple than mine, you could use more creative fonts. I also added some more color to the layout in order to pull everything together. Here is where you would add any habit trackers or elements that you use for your weekly spreads.

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule After my first semester of college I have developed a cleaning routine that I have been able to keep up with. You can read my previous blog post about What I Learned In My First Semester of College . Over the past few months I have experimented and I am confident in the routine that I have created.  Personalize When it comes to personalizing the schedule you could add or take out the different chores. For example I also wash my retainers weekly and monthly my roommate and I decorate the marker board on the outside of our door. We also only clean our mirrors when needed since we have found that they do not seem to become too dirty regularly. Something that I would make sure you sanitize every week would be the surfaces that you are constantly touching. That means light switches, door handles, and your desk. By doing this I managed to avoid getting sick when my roommate and other floor mates go sick. Another task that you could add to y

Bullet Journal Fitness and Workout Spread Ideas

If you want to purchase some of these spreads you can buy the digital bundle from my Etsy shop: Simply Paperless .  I had created six different bullet journal fitness and workout trackers/spreads. These spreads were made in my digital bullet journal using the GoodNotes App.   I highly recommend to use a stylus when using GoodNotes as a digital bullet journal. For this project I used the Adonit Dash 3 Stylus , which I highly recommend. I also recommend the Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack  from Amazon. Daily Workout Plan This first spread can be used to plan out what exercises you plan to workout each day of the week. I would recommend this spread for those who are just starting to workout. I did not created the workout that is used as the example for the content of this spread. The workout is from Pintrest Workout Plan .  Workout Tracker This next tracker is in the format of a monthly calendar. In order to track the different workouts accomplished throughout

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus was Jackie's choice for the month of October. Jackie is the host of The Readheads Podcast Book Club. This is a monthly podcast book club that I have been apart of since it was established in 2020. I love getting to hear the thoughts of the hosts each month.  Content of the Book: Elizabeth Zott is a chemist but is much more than meets the eye. She is not only beautiful but also extremely smart, confident, strong, and not afraid to beat to her own drum. Elizabeth is one of the only female chemists working at Hastings Research Institute. She is viewed as different by everyone there. It's there that she meet Nobel-Prize nominated chemist Calvin Evans. Calvin who falls in love with Elizabeth is described as a loner, grudge holder, and extremely brilliant. Fast forward a few years and Elizabeth is now a single-mother working as the host of the most watched cooking show, Supper at Six . With Elizabeth's ways of
