    Experimenting In My Filofax Planner 🖍️ studio diary #7

    April always tends to be a very busy month for me and this year was no different. This means I don’t have a huge amount of interesting footage to show. This month I spent some of my free time experimenting with my Filofax planner. I’ve come to enjoy using this planner, I don’t feel a huge urge to move around (which I tend to do). I think it’s the combination of designing the planner myself, and the flexibility of the rings system which makes it easy to add in extra pages where I feel they might be useful. I designed a monthly task page so it’s really easy for me…

I wrote last year about The Artist’s Way, a huge component of this is something called Morning Pages. This is where you take some time every morning to do a free writing session. The proper way of doing this is to write three pages but I found this takes a long while to write. However, I did get into a good…

    What Is A Commonplace Book & How To Use It

    I want to talk about something a little different today. I know my blog mostly focuses on bullet journals. But there are also other forms of journaling out there. One type of journal I’ve become fascinated with recently is the commonplace book. I’ve come across people talking about commonplace books before, but I’ve always had the impression that a commonplace book was a notebook where you wrote things you wanted to remember. Though this is true, the commonplace book is a little more complicated than that. And what I find most interesting, historically had a specific purpose.  So today I want to share exactly what a commonplace book is and…
