AUGUST IS ALMOST GONE and even though this isn’t quite at the end of the month or even in the first few days of September like I usually do my recaps… THERE IS A GOOD REASON FOR THIS POST BEING SLIGHTLY EARLY AND YOU SHALL UNDERSTAND ALL BY THE TIME THIS POST DRAWS TO AN END.
Omo there are so many things in my head, I honestly hope I can remember and include them all in this post.
In general life-ish-ness, I’m still not working, so I’m basking in having a nice long break and being able to focus on blogging, crafting, reading, and binging on kdramas XD
I used a habit tracker in my BuJo this month to help me keep track of things and make some new habits.
QUESTION OF DOOM: Should I add a ‘Bullet Journal’ section to these recap posts and show you what I’ve been doing in my Bullet Journal? ANSWER ME IN THE COMMENTS I NEED TO KNOW.
I got some new leetle calendar stamps to use in my BuJo and I’m in love with them ^.^ I ALSO SORT OF ACCIDENTALLY MADE A VERY AESTHETICALLY PLEASING DAILY PAGE. About half way through it I realized I had a serious color theme going on, so I kept to those colors on purpose and it looks amazing o__o
I included some Owl City lyrics because I’ve been listening to his music A TON and man, his songs are amazing. So I copied some random lyrics into some different pages.
I also took myself on a date this past Thursday and photographed a waterfall park.
And I took selfies with my mega gigantic monster of a camera.
And I found a snakeskin.
My main priority reading this month was finishing Aimee’s Pariah, WHICH I DID. AND IT MURDERED ME. SERIOUS PAINFUL MURDER OF FEELS. After that I read How To Cheat a Dragon’s Curse, the 5th book in the How To Train Your Dragon series. Now I’m unofficially forbiding myself from starting any new books until I finish The 5th Wave.
NONFICTION WISE(omo yes i am being adult and reading non-fiction too ewwwww) I’m going through The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. It’s not so much a book as a 12 week course to encourage more creativity in your life. I just finished week two and it’s pretty good.
I MADE THINGS THIS MONTH. Not all the things I said I wanted to, but I DID make things.
I had the idea for this ear cuff design for quite some time and I’m really happy with how it turned out.
I started making the next larger size of dragon that I have patterns for. I was going to make a giveaway for him here or give him to a friend, but then I named him Vortimous and now I love him and can’t give him away XD He will have wings eventually, but I’m currently working on an order for three other dragons.
Between this recap and the last recap I managed to put together ONE POST.
One. Entire. Post.
Because I’m fabulous like that.
BUT IN MY DEFENSE it was my Bullet Journal vlog Part 2! I didn’t have hardly ANY trouble getting it up, compared to the first vlog XD
AND NOW FOR THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS ENTIRE POST.
#WIPjoy IS RETURNING IN SEPTEMBER. AND I AM DOING DAILY BLOG POSTS FOR EACH PROMPT AGAIN.
Honestly, I had SO. MUCH. FUN. in June with #WIPjoy and I know many of you said you loved it as well so OBVIOUSLY I’m doing it again. Bethany Jennings hosts these every three or four ish months, so if September goes well like June did… I’m probably just going to make a habit of doing a blog series for every single #WIPjoy I can manage.
So THAT is why this post is a leetle bit early, because I wanted to get it out of the way before September starts and to give me a few days to write the first few posts for #WIPjoy and have them ready to go.
I love you all SO MUCH and I hope you enjoyed this August recap. Two smol orders of business before I skip off though:
I asked in my BuJo vlog if y’all would like me to make a tutorial of how to start a Bullet Journal. I know tons of blogs that I can steer people toward with lovely tutorials, but if you would like ME to make a tutorial just for you lovely followers, then PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
The second question I have for you is the one I mentioned at the top: Would y’all like me to include a ‘Bullet Journal’ section in these recap posts?
PLEASE take two seconds and reply to these questions in the comments! I want to make sure I post what y’all enjoy and what you want to see, so help me provide content you love by telling me what you love ^.^
