April update on what journals I am currently using as I continue my pilgrimage. It seems I might be heading straight back to where it all began, but I’ll let you watch and find out.
This week I have had the word ‘hope’ above my desk. It is my creative prompt for the week. The creativity has been a bit scarce, so I’m not certain if it has helped.
However, I did open the journal and write and doodle and think around ‘hope’. It was, as always, an interesting time, exploring an idea and concept in the journal. The ability to step back and think about things is the reason I journal. And the blank page is the ideal place to just explore and see where an idea or thought will take me.
Today I ended up realising that my biggest hope at the moment should be to believe in myself. I should believe in my abilities and skills and creativity. To believe in myself is to actually be myself, my true self; to believe and be.
Sometimes this feels so close. All I need to do is climb over a little ledge before me. At other times it feels like I need to cross a chasm. And it is a chasm that feels too wide. In fact, so wide I can’t really tell if there is another side, it is obscured in the darkness or by the mist.
But I hope. I hope that I will believe in myself. That I will be. And I hope that you can be the person you need to be. Explore what you hope for in your journal, you never know how close your hopes might be to being realised. Take care my friends x.

I created a vision journal for 2021. It also includes my One Word for the year. In the video, I show you how I made it, the process for creating the content on each page and how it all ties into my One Word for the year.
An overview of my December journal and planner set-up. My Bullet Journal has become more like a bullet journal. However, as I bring everything into one journal I seem to be using more journals! And can you believe it is December already? I hope you are all keeping safe and well? May your planning be happy and your journaling creative and rewarding.
My November Journal and Planner set-up. A walk through my planners, journals and other creative bits and pieces. My current set-up this November is a mashup of Bullet Journals, daily journals and junk journals. Oh, and I am also using Things on the computer to keep track of digital projects. It seems my journey to journal simplicity is taking a circuitous route. Please join me on my creative adventure by subscribing to my YouTube channel or blog, and please let me know what you think and how you plan and journal in the comments. Stay safe and well x
This week’s, the journal and planner update vlog goes on a little detour. It’s been a bit of a distracting week in one way or another, so I distract myself with a little creative play. Gesso is involved as I delve into the world of Art Trading Cards and my junk journal, before getting back into my current planner issues. Still unsure about whether the two planner system is working. Would love to know how things are going with you all, happy planning and creative distraction my friends x
