Hi everyone. Today I want to talk about another hobby of mine: bullet journalling. I use my bullet journal to keep track of all sorts of things, from how much water I drink daily to my crochet projects.
I currently use a Moleskin journal with dotted pages and have an embarrassingly large collection of pens, washi tape and other decorative things. I’ve also just ordered a Leuchturm journal from the USA. Things are getting serious!
Since this blog is about crochet let me share with you my crochet pages. First up my list of WIPs. I have this habit of starting WIPs at a near constant rate, so putting them in a list brings home just how many there are, and makes me feel accountable to myself to get them finished. I even have a knitting WIP. I also have a list of techniques I’d like to try so that they are not just wishful thinking.
Next up is my list of crochet projects I have managed to not begin, but do want to list so I don’t forget about them. I buy so many patterns I find the number I have too obscene to share, but largely I forget about them unless I actually scroll through them when looking for something new. This list keeps the projects I want to do first front and centre.
There are so many ways to bullet journal, and the beauty of it is that it can be as creative (or not) as you like. You can keep track of whatever you like, put in your favourite quotes, pictures, whatever really. I find I don’t really use planners all that much, but this has proven a very useful tool. I even keep track of medical issues so that when I see my specialist I am able to share with him exactly how things have been that month.
There is an immense body of inspiration out there. Pinterest, YouTube, and SkillShare all have excellent ideas and tutorials. All you need is a dotted or grid journal, some pens, a little imagination and you’re good to go.
Go on. You know you want to give it a try.
