This post will be a brief overview of my bullet journal layout for February 2020. I note that this will be brief because there is very little that is different this month from January's spread. As I mentioned in my 2020 overview video, I plan to keep this year simple to give me time to work on other things. Let's get started.
Before we get started here is a list of my recommended supplies.
The Minimal Gold January Process
As I have mentioned before, this year will be pretty simple and basic. So, this month's theme is incredibly similar to January's theme concept. At its core, my theme is gold and minimal. However, I have made minor functional changes (describe below). In order to create my golden theme, I primarily used Sakura Pentouch Paint Pens in 2.0 mm Gold.
The Layout Descriptions
As promised, I want to talk about the changes I made to my format this month. The largest changes are where I used gold, where I used black, and the composition of my February cover page. As you can see, this month's cover page is essentially the same; however, instead of a notes and future events section, I simply have two horizontal lines in gold. I did not use the section last month and felt there was no use for it in February.
Next. I swapped where I used gold and where I used black on the weekly spread. This month, I outlined the boxes and columns in black and did all of my headers in gold. I do not know why I did not do it this way in January, to be honest with you. It makes more sense to me this way and I am glad that I made the change.
Next, I added a few additional layouts to my bullet journal this month. These layouts are non-specific to February but were added between the months of January and February.
The first of these layouts is my content calendar. I wanted to create a concrete weekly calendar to show me when I should be rolling out new content each week at ElizabethJournals.
Next, I created a semester overview. At first, I was not going to do this layout; however, I found myself wanted to go and look at an overview and not having had one. So, naturally, I created a very simple overview with only my major projects and assignments.
And lastly, I created a watering and fertilizing tracker; however, I have not yet completed the layout. To be added is the header and most recent waterings (written on a sticky note on my desk). I have a large collection of houseplants and it is becoming harder and harder to remember my last fertilizing and watering.
