I just discovered Bullet Journaling and now I understand why a lot of people are hooked on this system! It is therapeutic and it gets me in the zone! I’ve been getting too much screen time these days, and it’s great to be able to take a break at night and disconnect from technology once in a while.
For my first journal – I chose a topic that I love the most: Creativity. One of my resolutions this year is to live a happier creative lifestyle. In order to achieve this, I must be able to keep track of the habits I want to develop: constantly learn new things about my career and hobby, work on my creative dreams in small steps, promote more work, finish the personal projects that I started, write down ideas for future projects, maximize the supplies that I have and spend less, share tips to others, find ways to be more inspired, and the list goes on….
If you are in a creative slump, I suggest that you start a Creativity Bullet Journal too! It will make you feel inspired to do your tasks and color your check boxes. Here are some ideas!
There are no rules! You may work on the prompts at your own pace. You don’t need to do them in chronological order. Start on the prompts that inspire you the most. One thing I learned from joining challenges in the past is that I never get to finish if I do them according to the Day number, it feels like a chore sometimes. 🙂 Feel free to print the list and mark the boxes. You may skip or modify the (prompts) if you can’t relate to some of them. Share this list with your crafty friends!
I’ll be using a Labrador Factory M Stitch Plain notebook, The Craft Central cream dotted pad and a Moleskine Chapters Dotted Journal. In case you’re not into BuJo, you can do this in any format that you like: notebook, art journal, lettering, scrapbook, Project Life cards, planner, etc. Sort of similar to me and my sister’s The List Project IG challenge in 2014.
Here are some of the layouts that I made for Prompt #2: Bullet Journaling lists to make, #4 Unused Supplies Inventory, #5 Podcast Tracker, #6 Creativity Books/Mags to read, #7 Albums and Scrapbooks to make, and #17 Instagram categories. Click each photo to enlarge.
I’ll create a separate blog post for these layouts where I will describe my process and provide a list of the supplies that I used.
Please share your layouts with the hashtag #creativitybujochallenge on Instagram. If you have a question about a prompt, feel free to comment on this post or message me on IG! 🙂
