What Stays and What Goes Along with Planning My Inserts

Hey Hey!

This is one of my favorite parts of starting a new journal/notebook. Evaluating my past system and deciding what has worked and planning what new pages I am going to try is one of the best things about this whole system. I guess I should be clear that I plan on doing bullet journaling in my TN.

After sizing up my Webster’s Pages TN, I discovered that four notebooks will fit best. The final list that I have decided on for notebooks is:

  • permanent lists & calendars
  • monthly/weekly/daily
  • blog
  • health & fitness
  • work (this will remain in my Leuchtturm Jottbook)

When I was planning what spreads and tracking would go where, I decided that having one spread to look at would be easiest. When I purchased my Moleskine Cahier notebooks, I set one aside for planning, doodling, and spread experimentation. The Moleskines are the same length, but are narrower than Leuchtturm and Scribbles That Matter notebooks, so I wanted to get used to the new size. Here is my notebooks:

I decided that having one spread to see all four notebooks would be best for planning. I split each page in half to make my plans.

As I went through my Scribbles That Matter notebook, I decided that I like most of my spreads. I may switch them up a little, but the biggest changes came in my blog notebook. I will be pairing down the number of idea pages and will be getting rid of the inventory pages for now.

One of the biggest things that I wanted to change about my planning (besides switching to a TN) is to hand-draw more. I am going to attempt drawing more of my spreads. We will see how it goes. I will be filming my set-up as well as a couple more tutorials.

See ya soon!

So May Didn’t Go Completely to Plan

Hello Lovelies!

Today, I wanted to share a recap of my bullet journal for the month of May. I was ambitious in my pre-month planning, but a couple road bumps tried to derail me. Anyways, let’s get started!

I have to start by saying that some of the spreads are not pretty because I crapped out on a them ( shame on me), but there were other spreads that I was really happy with.

Here is my monthly calendar, gratitude log, and daily log (fail #1). I always kick myself when I crap out on these because there are times when I reminisce and look back.


Next up is my running list of likes and dislikes (video is coming soon – I promise) and my Zentangle-style mood tracker. I really enjoyed the mood tracker. I will say that picking a better color palette was a giant WIN!


The following spread is my monthly trackers for sleep and headaches. These are some of my favorite pages. They give me so much information about how my body works. These are printable files that are available in the Printable Tools and FreebiesPrintable Tools and Freebies Library.


This next spread is depressing. My Step tracker that I was soooo excited about was a big fail because I lost my Fitbit… again. Ughhh…. And I failed at most of my goals for the month as well. Don’t judge me. I don’t wanna talk about it.


On to weeklies!!! I continued used a different color palette each week (check my Pinterest Color Scheme board for ideas!) About half way through the month, I tried my hand at watercolors, and I loved it! So much fun 🙂


I still used half-page dailies (for the most part) this month because they are working pretty well for now. If you want to see more, head over to my #LetteringMayFlowers Recap to see more of the dailies. Make sure to head over to my Instagram @NetaMarieDesigns to see a quick flip thru of May’s pages.

Have an amazing day!

My April 2017 Likes & Dislikes

Happy Saturday to All!

Today, I wanted to do a quick video showing my likes and dislikes. This is a segment I would like to continue doing each month with new products. For this specific video and post, I am going to lay the foundation and share my favorite products so far in my planning/bullet journaling journey (say that five times fast).

There is no specific category of items in the video, I discussed notebooks, pens, storage, paper, subscription services, and more. There are links at the bottom of the post if you are interested in any products. Let me know what you think about this video. I was inspired by makeup YouTube channel videos that I have seen and wondered why we couldn’t do this in the planner/bullet journal community.

Have a great day! Remember to subscribe to the Planet Plan It YouTube channel!
