Happy Sunday lovelies! I’m back (again) with a new blog post for you. Today I’m going to talk you through last months weekly spreads. You guys always seem to really enjoy these sorts of posts, and I totally get why because everyone loves a bit of inspiration don’t they? Over the last 4 months (or something like that) my bullet journal style hasn’t really changed much. However, I hope you’re still down to see and hear about a rather different (unique – we want positivity on this platform) way of bullet journaling. So, if all that sounds good to you then why don’t you keep on scrolling?

I’m really happy about how this week’s drawings turned out. If you know me and my style of drawing, then you’ll know I almost always draw ‘expressionless’ faces or more like I replace facial expression with flowers, planets or hearts. I personally think it looks really cool. Drawings are like my secret weapon when it comes to bullet journaling. It’s always what I do to fill out empty spaces on a page. And also, it just adds SO much personality to a weekly spread.

Again, I really like how this spread turned out. If you’re familiar with my bullet journal style, then you’ll already have seen and heard of my tracking. Tracking (in bullet-journal-language) is essentially a system where you can track your habits and in my case: water, sleep and money as well. The purpose is to basically give you an insight in how often you read, how often you walk more than 7000 steps, how much sleep you’re getting, how often you eat sugar and so on. I really like tracking these sorts of things. Because they often really motivate me not to eat sugar and to read more often. Like there’s something really satisfying about being able to dot a spot.

Now, on these photos you should be able to see how I set up the weekly to do’s (or what ever they’re called…) It’s the space where I in detail write what I need to do that day. I basically write the day of the week with a more bold pen (most times a 0.5 pen) and then write all the to do’s with a thinner pen (always a 0.1 pen – I honestly use that size of pen too much) Also, I write the date in tiny writing next to the day of the week. I’ve just found that really handy when it comes to planning.

Apart from my different sorts of tracking, the drawings and my use of different sized pens. A classic ‘Karen Wodstrup bullet journal indicator’ is photos. I honestly CAN’T do a weekly spread without a photo or two. It just instantly makes your spread look so much better. And especially if you’re not massively into drawing then just stick on a photo – and BOOM it looks amazing! I always use pinterest to find photos. There’s just an ocean full of stunning photos. Feel free to check my page out here.


That’s it guys. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. If so please give it a like and let me know in the comments:

Why do/don’t you bullet journal? What are five words to describe your bullet journal style? Which elements (tracking, photos, doodles etc.) are included in your weekly spreads? & what do you think of my style?

I post every single Sunday and if you don’t wanna miss out on any of that (which trust me, you don’t haha) then make sure to either follow my blog or subscribe with your e-mail. Until next Sunday; I hope you’ll have a wonderful week!

– Karen W. xx
