Hello people Happy November, for me it’s really hard to believe that this is the second to last plan with me of the year 2017. I started doing it a little while ago and honestly, I m obsessed with it. I get so excited when it comes to creating a spread for the new month, on the other hand, it’s so crazy and hard to believe that the year is about to end but anyways until then let me take you back through the month of October. I want to apologize as I could not post my October spread I was badly occupied with family weddings and meetups so there was no chance I could plan on posting anything other than wedding pictures. Anyways I will take you through the month of October real quick. The images I have shared below will give you brief ideas about how my monthly spread was and how well did I use it. Just trying my best to come up with different ideas and creativity every month. I first started bullet journaling in the month of September and since it’s only been 3 months I m still learning and bettering myself with lettering and doodles so if you think I m getting wrong somewhere please feel free to correct me. Also, comment your ideas below I would love to hear from you guys too.
That was for the month of October and with all those things being said let’s move onto setting up for the month of November. I loved my October spread a lot and so decided to stick to the same pattern for November with just a little variation on doodles. I wasn’t particularly following any theme for this month. I wanted to try something different but stay minimalist with everything. I don’t like adding too much stuff on my spread also I don’t like when pages look clumsy and messy. My style is to keep things cute yet minimalist. The images posted below are in same order as they are in my bullet journal for the November spread. You can look into it patiently and learn how I designed each page. I was trying to go with the flow because honestly I was having no solid idea when I started but I was sure that I would do some doodles on each page like I did for the month of October but this time only flowers and leaves. I have used the same notebook I used for September spread also the same black stick and ball pen by LUXOR. For this setup, you don’t need any kind of drawing perfection or lettering skills I have added some random doodles I was liking at that moment. From this spread, you can clearly depict that you can go ahead and literally draw anything your heart desires and that’s what I did basically. No complicated designs and doodles needed but if you feel like you are in desperate need of inspiration check out Pinterest it’s the best way to get your dose of motivation. As I was having little space at the bottom I drew a little calendar on First Page!!
Next comes the monthly log I did it completely different this time. It was so much fun trying out new things. Instead of drawing calendar view that I have been doing lately, I switched it with this pattern. Basically, I wrote down the dates and left 2 spaces for each date to write down events and tasks. On the empty sides, I went on with drawing some flowers. Looks super cute and is also super easy to create. For the entire spread, I pretty much went with a bunch of flower doodles as they are so amazing to work on. I decided to keep all the headers pretty simple as they were going perfectly with the kind of vibe I was going for. Next page is my master to-do list and I decided to split it up into two portions PERSONAL and BUSINESS and also I added some checkboxes. The ones I m underlining are reserved for the most important tasks of the month.
Next moving onto the weekly spread. The weekly spread that I m going to try this month is completely different from the ones I have been doing earlier. Normally I don’t to this big weekly spread and that too in advance but I m gonna be very busy and occupied for November and so I just wanted to make sure that I have enough space for each day to put up tasks and not forget to work on them later also I didn’t want to wait and worry about setting it later. If you will look at the pictures given below you will understand how it works it’s pretty self-explanatory. I have made this for 5 straight weeks. As you can see I have marked down weekdays from Monday to Friday and for the pages with little space, I added weekend too. Leave at least 5 lines for each day tasks you would be needing it. While I was drawing this page I kind of realized that this type of weekly log would work best for me as I love writing down everything and its similar to filling a to-do list only it’s a safer version. I can go back and recall what tasks I missed and completed. I was having little empty space at the end so I added 2 blocks one for Personal tasks and the other for Bussiness purpose.
I love creating the tracker’s page a lot because it’s not too high maintenance and same goes with the expense page. I keep track of bigger purchases so its a lot easier for me to keep up with this style also it does not take too much of my page space. My tracker’s page is usually quite basic Also, I have added doodles with all the headers otherwise it would have looked a bit boring and honestly I m in love with doodling these days so I thought why not. I have added 4 Trackers Habit Tracker, Sleep Log, Social Media and Expence Tracker.
Next page is for the highlights where I will share pictures and thoughts at the end of the month. These pages are super simple to create and easy to maintain. I designed Brain Dump page aka Scribbles page to look like a mess which is what it’s actually supposed to be. Getting all the thoughts and mess I have in my brain straight out onto this page. I used it to write some note and doodles and what not. I switched from Brain Dump to scribble word for this month. I believe it sounds a lot better than the brain dump. Again this page will be quite simple and organic. I will fill it with random things, thoughts and doodles. So this is the page for all that crazy stuff, filled with everything that doesn’t go anywhere.
Next comes the journalling page I have got so much used to it as I love filling a journal. I decided to give myself a little flexibility and left one line space for each day. It’s perfect for when I have super eventful days or when I have nothing to write about. At least there would be something about that day I could use to fill up that line.
And that’s all with this month’s spread. I hope you guys liked it and I m also sure you guys will take a little inspiration from my November spread for your monthly spreads. Weather it be for this month or next. If you guys have any ideas or suggestion please comment down below. Will be back with an amazing post XOXO
