2022 Christmas and December Bullet Journal Spreads

I am over the moon excited to announce that I have started an Etsy shop for digital bullet journal and planner products. My Etsy Shop is Simply Paperless. I have been working on this project for some time now and have three products for sale in my shop. 

I plan digitally, using an iPad and the application GoodNotes and Adonit Dash 3 Stylus from Amazon. These spreads were made on GoodNotes5, but are easily exported to be used on GoodNotes4. If you are curious to why I plan digitally check out my blog post Switching to a Digital Planner-Paperless Planning.

In this blog post I am sharing 2 Christmas present/gift list spreads and 5 of hand drawn weekly bullet journal spreads. I have shared a similar blog post in the past Step-By-Step Weekly Christmas Weekly Bullet Journal Spread

Present/Gift List #1:

This first present/gift list is simple in the layout but more detailed and creative in the design elements. There are 11 different check list sections. This could be divided into people, families, work, groups or any other section that works best for you. The design in the middle was inspired by the gift wrapping that I used for my families presents a few Christmas ago. I used paper bags, twine, and natural elements from our property. This design can be easily replicated and even made your own with different elements like a colorful bow or patterned wrapping paper. 

Present/Gift List #2:

This second present/gift list is the one that I designed for my personal bullet journal and have been using for the last two years. I use this spread throughout the year as I come up with presents. I use it for birthday, graduation, and Christmas. To make it more festive you could add green and red highlight or festive doodles like holly and Christmas ornaments. To fill out this spread I simply write the person's name on the tag and write in the gift ideas as I think of them. I also write where I found it is from I did not already purchase it. I then check off the box when the idea has been purchased. 

Horizontal Plaid Weekly Spread:

This is a horizontal spread that has a box for each day of the week and a notes section. Next to each daily box is a simple black doodle backed with a plaid highlight. I used green highlight behind the pine tree doodle and red plaid behind the present/gift box doodle. I also alternated the daily highlight color to be different than the plaid. 

Horizontal Christmas Tree Spread:

This next horizontal spread is very simple in its design and colors. It has all the functions of a weekly spread and a beautiful design with the simple pine tree doodles. For this spread I opted for muted colors with a light green and cool grey. A function of this spread is the daily to do list next to each daily box. There is room for 4 daily to do list items. The idea behind the daily to dos comes from Angie Bellemare's Needle Movers from her Daily Grind Planner. This layout also allows for a gratitude section and a box that can be used for a habit tracker, quote or even a picture from that week. 

Vertical Christmas Ornament Spread:

The previous spread is what I would call minimalism and this next spread is what I would call maximalism. This spread is packed with design elements. The main design element is the Christmas ornaments. On the first page there is room for three ornaments. I drew holly in one, pine needles in another, and a pine cone is the last. I also highlighted each ornament in a light grey to give the illusion of glass. To continue the theme I drew smaller ornaments and put DEC in them at the top of the page. I also added a smaller ornament hanging down from the days of the week for the date of each day. To add depth to the spread and more Christmas cheer I added dots, star, and diamonds throughout the whole page to represent snow. To continue with the more is better in this spread I also chose to use cursive and highlight for the name of each day of the week and highlight the box for each day of the week. I absolutely love how this spread turned out. 

Vertical Time Blocking Spread:

The layout for this spread is a new one that I created for this blog post. I wanted to show a variety of different layouts and ways to plan. So I designed a layout with times on it. Monday through Saturday has time slots from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm and Sunday has time slots from 5:00 am to 8:00 pm. Of course these times could be adjusted to fit your personal use. This spread also has a section for a tracker, gratitudes and notes, and a to do list. Because the main focus of this spread is the time slots I went with a simple red and white candy cane stripe pattern for the border of each box. I also used simple lettering to keep it classic. 

Horizontal Stocking and Present Spread:

This spread is also another new layout that I designed for this blog post. There are 6 different daily boxes, one for Saturday and Sunday. On both pages there is also a monthly calendar in the top left corner, a note section, to do section and appointment section. For the doodle of this spread there are three stockings hanging from the top and surrounded by dots for snow. Then on top of each daily box is three wrapped presents. I also added a red bow on top of some of the days of the week. I stuck with the traditional red and green colors for this spread. To add depth to the spread I used a light grey highlight to border or drop shadow the different boxes.

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
