December 2020 Journal Setup

It’s December 1st! It honestly feels like it’s just March yesterday and I was just about to go home from school because there’ll be an enhanced community quarantine to stop the spread of the virus. A lot of things happened after that and it’s just so crazy how time went by! I still can’t believe it but I hope you are all feeling well! And as for today’s post, I will share my December journal setup!

December 2020 Journal Setup

Starting with the December page design, here it is! I was highly inspired by the video of Amanda Rach Lee (which I will link down below) and decided to recreate it myself! It’s not as pretty as hers but I tried. Besides, I’ve stopped journaling and just started again last October so I needed some inspirations to come through! I’m so glad how this turned out, though. Amanda used a lot of stamps in hers and I don’t really have one so I’m planning to invest and buy stamps.

Like Amanda’s, I really wanted my December designs to have a vintage-ish and homey feels, so the Christmas designs are not that extravagant. You will notice I only used few colors too!

Going on to the next page, my December calendar.

Since I still have space on the right side, I decided to put and list all the important things I need to do for the month. So far, I have only listed due dates for my academic papers. The rest are to follow.

The last one is for my weekly time block spread.

Time blocking is something I’ve started in Google Calendar, but I couldn’t keep up with it, so I incorporated it into my journal. This way, I can see it more because my journal is always in my desk.

Before I started to do this, I’ve watched tips on how to do it well and one thing I remember the most is that: time blocking doesn’t happen overnight. I’m still working on my way to be consistent and follow what’s written in my time block, but of course if I have to make adjustments, I gladly do so. Still, this weekly spread has helped me a lot to accomplish tasks I need to do.

If you’re curious about the colors, here’s the list:

  • Blue – Rest
  • Orange – Routines
  • Pink – Study
  • Yellow – Others
  • Blue Green/Green – Blog

Here’s Amanda’s video:

And that’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed my December journal setup. I would love to see yours as well, so link it down in the comments below!

I’m still thinking whether to continue participating in Blogmas– well, you’ll probably know if I’ve decided to take part in my next posts. But maybe for now, this is the first ever post for my Blogmas this year. I’d also love to know if you’re doing Blogmas! Tell me in the comments and maybe we can collab? πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for reading. Once again, I hope you’re all well!

    This is actually so gorgeous! I love the layout and design of this and it feels really autumnal. The stickers are so cute and I also loved how you colour-coded your time. I thought that was really clever. I wish I had this when I was in school πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! <3 I’m still working on time blocking but so far it’s turning out really great! πŸ™‚

      Thanks for dropping by! <3

  18. Oh my goodness! I am obsessed with this set up! Love the little stickers tooπŸ’—

    1. Thank you so much, Meghan! I’m so glad you love it! πŸ™‚

  19. Your recreation is different but it is so beautiful despite its simplicity! I love that it is functional too.

    I’ve been bullet journalling too and I started during our lockdown days. I realized that I am not as creative as you are and other bujo makers. So, I’ll just stick with “functional planning”. Lol.

    Thank you for sharing your creativity with us, Kapatid!

    1. Thank you so much po! <3

      Ack, I know the feeling! I stopped getting creative with my journals too because it didn’t really look pretty at all but now I’m starting again and I’m just having so much fun doing it. πŸ™‚ I think the creativity just comes out and as long as you’re satisfied with what you’re doing, just go for it! But yeah, I have to agree to stick with what works best for you. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for appreciating po palagi! <3

  20. Wow, it’s really beautiful!! 😍 Your time blocking layout is also great and super functional – I also found that it helps me so much with everything I need to do and time management in general! Thanks for sharing 😊
