Bullet Journal Resources

We’ve talked briefly about Bullet Journaling here. It’s such the thing right now – all of the cool kids are doing it.  Karma does it. Shawna and I dabble, too.

Today, I want to give you some resources so you can learn more about Bullet Journaling and decide if it’s for you. In a future post, I’ll talk about how I use mine.

The original Bullet Journal system was created by Ryder Carroll. He has an Official Bullet Journal Facebook Page (with nearly 80,000 followers!).

Other Facebook Groups include…

Bullet Journal for Moms

Bullet Journal for Mindfulness

The Boho Berry Tribe

 

My favorite place to look for inspiration is Instagram.  Here’s a quick list of some of the people I’m currently following there, but really, just search #bulletjournal or #bujo to see the latest – it’s what I do when I’m looking for some fast inspiration.

On Pinterest, there are at least a jillion ideas for Bullet Journaling.

There are some really amazing people out there blogging about Bullet Journaling. Some of my favorites include…

Tiny Ray of Sunshine

Boho Berry 

Christina

So. Where to start? All you need is a notebook, a pen, and a short list of things you want to do today or in the future. I like Boho Berry’s series of posts/videos for BuJo newbies. Her handwriting is insane and her page spreads are perfect-perfect. That’s a little intimidating, but she’s also has a down-to-earth and realistic approach to getting started.

 

I hope you’ve found this helpful. I’ll be back soon with more about Bullet Journaling and how I’ve made it work for me and my busy days!

If you’re planning to order for the holidays (and we hope you are), you’ll want to get on that before the end of this week. Between “interesting” weather patterns this time of year and all of us last minute Santas making delivery people so busy, we can’t promise delivery if your order arrives after this week.

Grateful

A woman’s hopes are woven of sunbeams.

 

It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is this week – and yet here it comes – the kick-off to the busiest time of the year for many of us.

Let’s take a big deep breath and remember to give thanks.

CALMIND17_Salespiece_FC__19270.1458838101.1280.1280
Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.

Let’s live a more mindful life – paying attention to the small details that make our lives so special.

CALEAT17_Salespiece_FC__24456.1458839346.1280.1280
Think with your whole body.

Let’s remember to have a crazy good time with friends and family. And let’s remember to take a little time for ourselves, too.

Like most other retailers, Brush Dance is having some pretty incredible sales going through the holiday season. We are grateful that you spend some of your hard-earned money supporting our small business. 

Thank you.

Happy Halloween!

Don’t wait for your ship to come in – swim out to it.

Happy Halloween!

We’re featuring Strangeling today. The art of Jasmine Beckect-Griffith.

Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.

Jasmine’s art inspires us to look at things (and ourselves!) from another point of view.

Take a closer look at Strangeling items from Brush Dance. The Planner is a wonderful gift item that is priced right, too.

 

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

calbfly17_salespeice_fc__25130-1456858545-1280-1280
Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.

National Breast Cancer Awareness month was founded in 1985. The famous pink ribbon came along in 1993 when the Estee Lauder Company established The Breast Cancer Research Fund. Ever since, pink ribbons and October have served as reminders that all women need to be screened for breast cancer.

calflow17_salespiece_fc__15183-1457467183-1280-1280
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

As women, we have a tendency to not take care of ourselves. To put the needs (and even the tiny wants) of others before our own.

calgeo17_salespiece_fc__44068-1458758480-1280-1280
In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.

Some women may think they won’t get breast cancer because it doesn’t run in their family.

minyoga17_salespiece_fc__05560-1459367543-1280-1280
Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.

Others may feel like there’s just no time to get to the doctor for a screening.

callily17_salespiece_fc__52177-1458829326-1280-1280
Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.

It’s important that every woman get screened for breast cancer. You’re important. You owe to yourself and to all of the people who love and rely on you to take care of your body.

Please get screened and talk with your provider about any family history and the appropriate schedule of screenings for you.

Let’s Travel

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

Summer is officially over. Many of us are getting settled into a different daily routine. Kiddos are back in school, leaves need raking, holidays need planning, and here I am –  fantasizing about travel.

calreal17_salespiece_fc__91308-1458840719-500-500
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. 

Where shall we go?  Paris with photographer Geogianna Lane? Or maybe to the Dreamer’s Realm with artist Catrin Welz-Stein?

caljgar17_salespiece_fc__95245-1458761883-1280-1280-2
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

We could visit the simplicity of Japanese Gardens for a bit of quiet meditation.

calfair17_salespiece_fc__54697-1457466889-1280-1280

Or maybe take a quiet stroll with Ginger Kelly’s fairies in the land of fairytales.

All from the comfort of our homes.
