November BuJo

Welcome back to another Bullet Journal (BuJo) post! I’ve done two, this month, so that I can show you December’s BuJo before it gets filled in at the beginning of December (with there being so many other posts coming up, along with my “12 Days of Blogmas” posts). I hope that this all makes sense (*eye roll*)! So, without further ado, let’s get to it…

I LOVE this BuJo layout… it’s simple and elegant, and I may carry it forward into my 2019 BuJo because I love it that much. My first page, as per the usual, has – a calendar for November and my goals for November.

This is then followed by my first week’s layout, which starts on Monday, the 29th of October. I’m in love with each little sketch on these Diary Pages… they’re so cute, but I feel like they’re most effective on these pages because they add a little something into the simplicity.

This is then followed by my Mood Tracker, which is probably my favourite Mood Tracker in the entire BuJo. Then, there is a quote on the opposite page from The Martian by Andy Weir (which is a book that I read during this month and also reviewed). Link to review – here.

The following pages comprise – another Weekly layout with a few sketches. The simplicity of this layout is amazing to me… I love it!

The next couple of pages are on my November Favourites and have a Disney sketch, which I’m completely in love with, too. I have decided that I’m going to do this sketch, once again in my 2019 BuJo.

The next couple of pages have another two Weekly layouts. You’ll notice that I always make a note in my diary about when I start and finish a particular book… I like to keep a record of how long it took me to read each book.

I then did a two-page layout for my NEWTs Readathon, in which I recorded everything that I read; and, I rated each book, using the key at the bottom of Page 2. I really enjoyed drawing this, and then, filling it all out!

Finally, I have another Weekly layout, followed by a page that’s ready for the switch over to December. I really loved this layout… I enjoyed drawing it, and I enjoyed filling it out. I am so excited for Christmas (and my winter layout for December)! Are you ready for Christmas? I certainly am!

I hope that you enjoyed this layout, as much as I did. Please let me know what you think in the comments below… 🙂

    Wow ! This is amazing. So impressed. Gosh. How long does all that take ?!?

    The questions…… you make a living from this, what are your long-term ambitions, what is your motivation ?

    I ask, as I do these awesome (well I think so anyway !) Guinea Pig ‘Show and Tells’ in schools and nurseries. Now in Jan, I am going into a school and will be speaking to 90+ year 5 and year 6’s (ages 10/11) and my topic will be ‘self improvement’ – as I think pure guinea pigs for 40 mins will be a bit boring. I’ve ‘self-improved’ doing these shows, so I’d also like to briefly mention the wider world of blogging/twitter etc.

    It’s a work of pure art…..this site (not my shows……they are a bit like Panto !)

      Aww thank you so much. That’s a huge compliment.

      It can depend on how much detail I go into but November’s layout in total probably took me 2 hours to set up and then obviously I fill it in daily.

      I don’t make a living from this, it’s a hobby ☺️ I’d like to make a living from it in the long term but at the moment I’m enjoying having a bit of fun with it. I just enjoy sharing things I like with other people, and that keeps me going. I like to share my bujo layouts with people, some will probably as nervous to start one as I was earlier on this year, some may have had one for years. But I like seeing other people’s bullet journals and therefore like to share mine. Similarly, if I REALLY enjoyed a book and feel like it needs more recognition or I think other poeple may have enjoyed it, I like to review these for everyone to see ☺️

      Your shows sound fantastic. The kids must love them 😁 self-improvement is so important. Like you’ve mentioned, motivation can play a huge factor in self-improvement but personally, I feel that if you enjoy something and it’s improving you as well, the reward is so much better. Not only are you improving yourself, but you enjoy it as well. My blog posts are something I enjoy doing, but they also improve my writing skills, which in turn, will help me to possibly write a book in the future (which I’d love to do). Same as my yoga classes, I love attending them, they’re improving my body strength and helping me lose some weight too. But it’s not a chore for me (as it could be for others) because I enjoy it ☺️ I hope this answers the questions for you 😁

        That is a wonderful response thank you for the detail. Funny enough, the ‘school booking call’ came through 30mins ago : 3 Friday’s (in Jan) for me to choose.

        Enjoy/Improve/Reward : I’m massively paraphrasing that (got to take youngest to drs very soon) – but wanted to acknowledge your time on that response. 👍

        I will read this once a bit closer and use bits of it. Thank you. It’s 2-way so hopefully I’ll get some interesting answers back to me from the children.

        Once again thank you

          Ah my pleasure. I hope you get some good feedback from the kids also 🤞 enjoy ☺️

    This is amazing. I feel like I need to have an artistic hand to do this. I totally love this idea but sadly don’t think I have enough time to commit to it. Any advice on how to carve out extra time in a day. lol

    I love this simple but creative layout, I definitely love the page with the books. I might do something like this for my next year’s bullet journal. Great post 🙂 xxx
