Hello! In this post I’m going to talk about a workshop that I created for the volunteers and the staff memebers about bullet journaling. Maybe some peple are now asking themselves… what’s that? So to begin with, I’m going to explain a little bit what it is. To abbreviate, most of the people call it bujo.Bullet journaling is an activity in which you create your own planner or journal. To start you would only need a notebook and some pens, color pencils or whatever it comes to your mind. If you want to go further and become a pro in this activity you can do it in a dotted notebook because it is easier to manage the space just counting the dots.
As I have said before, there two types of bujo so far.
- Planner type
Here the aim is creating our own planner to have our tasks organized. Usually, in the first two pages you can have the monthly cover and the quote page to decorate it a Little bit more but this is very free form. Then, the next pages are filled in with the days of the month. Its good to look for some inspiration in Youtube and Pinterest at the beginning.
2. Journal type
This type is even more free than the previous one. It consists in writing a journal about interesting things that happened to you, memories…etc. It is more similar to scrapbooking so there are a lot o materials that can be used such as markers, color pencils, magazines, washi tape, stickers… Its always good to use recyclable materials.
Fast DIY!: I’m going to give you a tip to do washi tape very easily. The only thing you need is normal tape and markers. You can choose the pattern you prefer and voilà… you have diy washi tape to add to your bujo.
To finish, these are some photos of the workshop:
