I’m here to share with you my set up for November and, while it’s not one of my favourites, I love how colourful it is! I went with the whole vibe of Bonfire Night (which ironically I am NOT a fan of) for this month’s theme! I hope you like it!
NOVEMBER BULLET JOURNAL
This month’s colour: multicoloured!
This month’s theme: Bonfire Night!
(I’m going for a different colour/theme every month – January was blue; February was purple/love; March was green/plants; April was black and white/geometric; May was inspired by The Strangeworlds Travel Agency/red/brown; June was Scarecrow Queen and orangey tones; July was pink/purple/summer fun; August was rainbow and pride; September was random shapes/multiple colours; October was brown/coffee)
Kickignt higns off with a bang is the title page – just your bog standard title page. All the colours and all of the shapes of Bonfire Night was what I was going for here! I wanted November to kind of stand out and look like it was up in lights! (whether I achieved that or not YOU can decide hah)
My calendar spread was just another one of those boxy calendars that seem to work so well for me. I had a bit of a play around with the lettering for November down the side (I wish it had come out better, but you know, we live and we learn!). I decided instead of doing numerals, I would do words for the numbers and I really like how it turned out (obviously these pictures were taken before I started adding everything into it haha). The few boxes spare along the bottom are still empty a week later and I’m just not sure what to fill them with (I do not want to leave them blank… that seems a bit boring?!)
Next up is my bookish page and a quote page. I’m just going back to absolute basics for my bookish page – just by every box will I write a book and an author! I’m being clearly very ambitious in adding THAT MANY boxes, but I have a lot of graphic novels on their way to my house so I might need all of those boxes haha. On the other page, I just stole a predictable quote from Katy Perry’s Firework. I’ll be honest – this time of year SUCKS in my head, so this is always a good reminder for me to let this time of year not suck!
Next up as you flip through is my brain dump page and then my habit trackers. My brain dump page wasn’t used much last month, hence staying with only 1 page – I like keeping it about for those times when I need to just get stuff out and vent. It’s a page for just me to go AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. On the other side, you’ve got my habit trackers. As you can see I’ve gone for 6 different habits to track – some work related, some health related and some just life ones! The idea is to colour in each box if I do the thing every day – I’m sure you all understand how a habit tracker works haha.
Next up is my mood tracking and gratitude tracker. I’ve gone with something slightly different for my mood tracker – instead of colouring in a box/shape, I’m drawing a line of different lengths to represent how happy/sad I’m feeling that day. In theory, the longer the line, the better the day! I’m still playing around with this, but I’m liking how different it is for now! I’ve added a few doodles onto this page (which I have since coloured in!). The other side is just my gratitude tracker – pretty self explanatory. A box a day for every day in November – I used a base few colours to do the dots. I might tart up this page as it’s looking a bit bland!
The final page I have as I write this is my first weekly spread (I’ll sit tonight, Sunday night, and do next week’s page – if you’re interested in what that looks like, check out my twitter). Just some simple fireworks for each day of the week (I group together my weekends because not as much happens in them!).
And that’s it – that’s my October bullet journal so far!
