Bullet Journal – February Setup

Hello again! 

Finally, after four month of not posting my bullet journal setup I think it is time to show you something new! I was having a hard time with my journal. The layout did not fit perfectly, I wasn’t using it and I ended up with multiple lists on different papers which was super messy. But I took myself some time to think about how I want to use my bullet journal and why. Today I want to share my story and my latest Bullet Journal setup.

The theme for Ferbuary are golden flowers!

I used a lot of gold with black lineart and a bright lilac. It is the Tombow dual brush pen number 620. For the gold parts I userd a uni-ball signo in gold in combination with a winsor newton fineliner in black with the size 0.1.

My last Bullet Journal setup I showed you was October last year. Feel free to check this out as well. But to be honest, I didn’t like how it looked and I did not use it as much as I needed it. The black and white theme was to dark and reflected the bad weather. All in all it was absolutly the opposit of what I want my Bullet Journal to be. I stopped showing my Journal since then. 

I created a theme for Nevember which I loved! It looked pretty and I was using it a lot but again I was afraid of not using it enough. I posted one picture on Instagram, which has been my last one on this platform for months. After showing this page in public I realized that my problem was not the theme or the colours – it was the presure to show something pretty to the world.

In my opinion it is a huge problem that you can only find pretty Bullet Journals online. If something is not absolutely straight or you spelled something wrong – it is not worth publishing it! And I don’t want to support these approaches anymore. I want to use my Journal the way it is the most helpful and supportive for me. This is why I show you my February setup at the end of the month. I want to show you how it actually looks after using it for weeks.

Bullet Journal February weekly with gold moon and flowers

My monthly log is one one page with a little square for each day. I used it as a monthly overview because sometimes I don’t have every week prepared but I need to write down a date. 

This picture showes my first week of February. I had to blur some information about my tasks at work and sensitive data. I wrote the week on one side with different tasks for each day and appointments. On the right side it is a running to-do list for the whole week. Whenever I did something that was on this list I ticked off the row. Bus as you can see: not every row has been done.

The next two weeks are on two pages with a dutch door between. This is a page slightly shorter than the others. When I cut the page I thought I could use those pages for one week, but as I started drawing I changed my mind. I only needed one page for one week.

And so I painted the first one on one page with a little space for my running to-do list on the bottom right corner. The other week is on the second page without a running to-do list. But to be honest: I missed it a lot! My next weekly will definitely have some space for a running to-do list again!

Every time I had some space for a little scetch or some flowers I started drawing it with pencil. Then I added the gold color. When it was done I thought it didn’t had enough details and so I used the fineliner to made it more special. Most of all I love the little moon on the first ween. I’m still not sure whether I should fill in the moon in the gold colour but I think I will keep it as it is.

This is my Bullet Journal setup for February so far. I don’t have a weekly spread for the last week because I forgot to paint it and now I don’t have the time to do anything I would like to use. I hope you can understand why I stopped posting my spreads for such a long time. Now I’m back and I can’t wait to show you my setups for the next monthy and share my opinions about the usability of it. 

See you next time!
