March Bujo, Real Life Tip

It is late in the day (well, to post anyway). I hadn’t finished getting my March spread done, so I had to finish that this morning after an appointment. I’m such a homebody that I hate leaving my house. And sadly, I have left it far more often in the last few weeks than I wanted to. I think every day this week and last week, I was out of the house for one reason or another–various appointments, small group, broken-down car (now fixed), school, and the list goes on.

So, my bujo was a little late getting done. Oh, who am I kidding? It’s often done AFTER the month has started. haha  I had hoped that having to post it here on the first Wednesday would help, and it might have, if the first hadn’t have been yesterday. 😀

So here are my pics. I forgot to take them BEFORE I added info, so forgive the blacked-out parts. One of these days. 🙂

< On Friday, I had a bit of time in the class I help with, so I sketched out an idea for my March cover page. It’s not as zen tangle heavy as the others, but there’s a bit in there.


Over the weekend, I started the sketch in my bujo. I made the pencil drawing a tad lighter to make it easier to erase, but you can see that I basically did the same drawing, which I modified from a Pinterest post that I found ( I obviously put my own spin on it.

After that I copied my pencil lines in ink and colored it in.

Now, to be sure, green is NOT my favorite color, and it has NEVER been featured so heavily in one of my themes, but somehow this month, this year, it seemed like the right thing to do. I used three different colors, all Crayola Supertips (if you care).

The space looked a little empty, so I added some poorly drawn clovers. Can you find the four-leafed ones?

As I sit here and stare at the pics, I realize all the mistakes I made. LOL

Anyway, the facing page was blank, so I went in search of a quote or something to fill the space. I ran across this Irish blessing: “May your troubles be small and your worries be few, and may good luck be with you, whatever you do.” I don’t believe in “luck” per se, but I liked the blessing. Then I found a cute leprechaun/troll to put in the corner. I struggled drawing him. Artists make it look so easy. Hands are so hard. Don’t zoom in and look at my attempt. They’re malformed. From a distance they’re not too bad.

The next page is my calendar spread. I decided to do a full spread and

make the spaces bigger than usual. I don’t know if I’ll use all the space or not, but I like the look. Again I added a few clovers to fill in the spaces. These are pathetic looking, but hey, I already told you that I’m not awesome at drawing.

The next page is my words written and books read. I slacked in February and only read thirteen books. January’s list included twenty-two. How many books do you average in a month?

The next page is my first weekly. Can you see my mistake on the weekly? Eyeroll. I drew five clovers to contain the letters W-E-E-K-L-Y. Do you see my issue? And since I didn’t have room to draw another clover, I just put the LY in one together. I really do know how to count (and spell).

And to be real, I didn’t make that menu in advance. I wrote down what we had to eat on those nights. 😀 I do like making a menu, though. It makes life easier. No flash thawing.

And that leads to my tip of the month. Make a menu. When I do, I enjoy cooking a little. I’m not a big fan of being in the kitchen, but when I have things planned in advance, my brain doesn’t have to work as hard at 5 o’clock.

Finally, the last winner for February’s giveaways is Kendra. Again. Congrats to her and thanks to her for her support.

  1. I love green. Sorry ;P
    There is not a speck of Irish in me…but I’ll take the excuse to wear green!

    1. So funny. I am 1/4 Irish and I don’t like it. I think it’s because my dad LOVED green, which meant everything was green. 😮
