May & June Bullet Journal // Happy Friday

So it occurred to me the other day that I never shared my May bullet journal so I thought I would just combine May and June together.

I wanted to do a flower theme for May because I did a rainy theme for April. You get it - April shower bring May flowers. But I'm not a fan of flowers actually, so I decided to go with tulips which is one of the few flowers I do like. And since I also try to do a color scheme each month I went with pinks because it just seemed spring like and perfect for my tulips.


This month I used some Planner Society washi I had which had pink flowers although they weren't tulips. I actually really liked the washi tape and really wanted to use it. I used the same calendar setup that I started using back in January. I have found that it works and although it can be a bit of a pain to draw out each month I like it and it works.


This month I added in a cleaning tracker. During May I knew I needed to get a handle on my cleaning routine which was pretty much non-existent. I didn't do great and it wasn't until next month that I really started figuring out what kind of routine I wanted to try to do.

Also I did my mood tracker. I both like it this and don't like it at the same time. I liked the idea of a vase of flowers but it didn't turn out like I wanted it to and that definitely bummed me out.


My daily pages looked much the same as they always do. I did do more stamping - because how often do I get to use my tornado stamp (hopefully not often actually). And of course my Royals stickers which I got from a shop on Etsy to mark what time the games are (and apparently they were going through a good stretch because they were winning a lot and that is definitely not happening a lot now).


I continue to add in pictures like this one from Mother's Day and add in stickers but mostly it's just listing.



June

I love June and hate June all at the same time. I love the baby flamingos, but I just don't think the colors were my favorite. I wanted to do oranges but flamingos are pink so I did a mix. I don't know how well I did at mixing the two colors.


I still don't know how I feel about this washi tape at the top. I actually love pineapples but I think what's really throwing me here is the orange. The more I look at this the more I decide I don't like orange. If you notice I didn't even stamp the days of the week at the top of the calendar. There was a lot of laziness this month I guess.


I think one of my favorite things I do each month is the memories page. I don't always share the end result but this is where I really add pictures. Many months I do a lot more stamping but laziness. I tried doing a memories page in the past and it didn't work but when I let myself add pictures and not try to just doodle and handletter, neither of which I'm good at, I find that I like it a lot more and it really works for me.


I definitely did better this month - at least towards the end of the month - at cleaning. But like I said I really started working on figuring out a routine that works. Also this month I did a pineapple for my mood tracker. I think it turned out good but I do wonder if I should have colored the top of the pineapple. I'm still on the fence about that.


Same daily layout and same use of pictures. But for a little bit I tried out a step tracker in my bullet journal. But I decided I didn't care that much so I didn't keep up with it and just stopped. Because sometimes you just turn the page and move on.


I had a tough June actually so my dailies were pretty simple and mostly just the lists. I did want to share what I add in here which was the cleaning routine I decided to try. At some point I plan to share my other spreads that are just lists and how I really use my bullet journal, but here's a glimpse at something I did which is pretty simple and adds in some stamping but it worked.




Like I said June was tough. I was sick for a lot of June and I'm not talking about all the morning sickness. This pregnancy has been tough but I have done my best to keep up with my bullet journal. There were days that I didn't even open it and that was okay too. Keeping lists and getting things out of my head definitely helps me focus and keep track. I think also since I didn't love my theme for June I didn't really keep up with it because I didn't want to look at it.

Now I am into a new bullet journal and of course a new month. I will share some pages from my new setup in my new bujo, a collection of other spreads like I mentioned above and of course July once July is actually over. But for now....


Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!
