Welcome to day 14 of blogmas.
Every Sunday, I sit down with my bullet journal and plan for the week ahead. This involves creating a weekly spread for my events and tasks that I want to record for the week ahead. I’ve been blogging about my bullet journal for some time but I haven’t showed my weekly spreads and how I set them up before so that’s what today’s post is going to be about.
The first thing I do is decide on a weekly layout. This all depends on how much I have going on for the week and the amount of space I need for my tasks. For this particular week, I went for a daily spread layout. The daily spread layout involves planning for each day as it comes so you use as much or as little space as you need. If you want to see other examples of this weekly layout all filled in, check out my Instagram.
Once I’ve picked the layout, I will plan it all out in pencil. I do this to ensure that I like the look of the layout and I don’t make any mistakes. If I’m also adding my own touches to the layout, like the wreath in this particular layout, I use pencil to make sure the placement is fine.
Once I’m happy with how it all looks with pencil, I will go over everything in pen. I like to make sure I do this before adding colour because if mistakes are made, it’s easier to cover them up like this as opposed to lots of colour being everywhere. I also added the brush lettering as well just to make sure everything looks okay.
Once I’ve gone over everything in pen, I add colour. As this layout is pretty simple, the only colour required was on the wreath. This means this weekly spread took me about 15 minutes to set up so it’s nice and quick!
And there you have it! My weekly spread is all set up and ready to go. The only thing I have left to do is fill out the events section and my tasks under Monday. Again, once all my tasks are under Monday and I know I won’t be adding more, that’s when I’ll add Tuesday and that normally happens on Monday night!
Thank you for reading!
