Weeklys or dailies?

Weeklys or dailies?

I’ ve seen this question a few times this past week: “Do you use weeklys or dailies?”

Well, I use both!

Every Sunday I do my planning for the week to come. I look at my calendar and my task list on my phone, make a weekly spread and fill in appointments and tasks on appropriate days. I look at my future log and monthly spread and see if I missed anything. I look at my social media schedule and plan when to do what. I can see the whole week, and that helps me plan for the days ahead.

Then I do my dailies, and again fill in my appointments and the tasks. Why? Because the repetition helps my brain to remember! And in my dailies I have a timeline, so I see right away if I’m trying to put too much in one day (I tend to do that…).

Then, every morning I start with looking at my plan for the day. I alter if needed, add if needed, and get to work. It’s a great routine for me, that lowers my stress to a minimum and keeps me on top of all the things I need to do.

It often looks a little like this:

Takes no time to make. This month is space-themed, so I used black and blue Tombows to paint the background, and then a silver uni-ballSignoo for the text. In case you were wondering 😉 Oh, and I got some cute stickers!

July is closing in!

July is closing in!

I like to do a monthly spread in my personal BuJo (my Leuchtturm), to get an overview of my month.

I always start with a review of last month – what worked? What didn’t work? And then I adapt and edit my setup.

This month I wanted to include the weeknumbers, a tasklist for things that just need to be done whenever, a tracker for my weight, and a quote I like. I wanted the colours to be clean and serene, so I went with blue to green – like sky and grass.

First step: sketch. That way I know that everything fits.

I did my sketching in front of Supernatural on the computor, so it took me awhile 🙂

Next – the backgroundcolour. I used FaberCastell aquarelle pencils, and a brush with water (see before/after. Water is added on the left side first, to prevent me from smearing it.)

And 0,8 mm unipen for the lines. I do the background first, to make sure the black lines stay put. There is always a risk of smearing them with a brush.

Looks really nice and clean I think!

I then did the small titles with my 0,1 unipen, and used a brushpen for the rest. The brushpen is brand new and only have japanese signs…I have no idea what it is called, but I love it! It’s a bit smaller than Tombows or Sakuras, and really easy to use. Takes awhile to dry though, as you can see I smeared it a little…

And I added some washi on the side of the page, to easily find it.

There it is, ready to be filled with notes 🙂 July is going to be FUN!
