This isn’t the first time I have posted about bullet journals on this site. A couple years ago I attempted to start one and it didn’t work out. I simply didn’t have the desire to fill the pages of a beautiful new notebook with my illegible writing! I am not a doodle-r either so there would have been a significant lack of cute drawings, too.
And yet I am drawn to all things bullet journals because my interest is still there apparently!
Etsy has some really beautiful bullet journal accessories. Even bullet journal kits! Now, that is something I can get behind.
I recently purchased some stencils from Etsy that I have used in my planner and they definitely do make things a little more fun and pretty. But stencils that set up layouts eventually just look like the pages of the planners I already own and at that point, what’s the point?
As I’ve been browsing Pinterest, I am noticing that it’s the journals that look more like collages, or even scrapbooks, that are catching my eye.
Before Pinterest, I used to cut out pages of magazines that had inspiring images, anything ranging from clothing to home decor to bookshelves. I kept the pictures separated from one another in a binder, but I love the idea of turning them into a collage in a notebook.
It wouldn’t exactly be a bullet journal, but it would be part of the evolution of bullet journals that we’ve all seen across Pinterest, Instagram and even here on WordPress. If I decide to go that route, I may share some of my progress here, if that’s anything you would be interested in.
Do you have a bullet journal or something similar?
