Hurray for May!
The warm sunshine has returned, the bees are a buzzin’, and flowers are popping up everywhere. That means it’s spring here in the ol’ northern hemisphere! It’s time to bust out your sunglasses, find your flip flops, and start creating some fabulous May bullet journal spreads! Here is a boatload of inspiration to get your wheels turning.
Whether you normally do a calendar, a list, or something else, consider switching it up a bit and trying something different. You can even ditch monthlies all together and try a bunch of different bullet journal weeklies. You'll never know what is best for you until you experiment!
Go with a simple layout this month! Grab your favorite highlighter and throw some color down. Will it be the greatest set up you've ever created? Probably not. But it will be an efficient setup that still delivers some wow.
This May bullet journal cover page just makes my imagination run wild. When I look at it I think about space, clouds, thunderstorms, and so much more. It's so easy to get lost in the beautiful colors in this spread.
Your childhood is always a great inspiration for any monthly spread. So this month, think of your favorite childhood movie or story and build your May setup around that theme. You're sure to get a nice feeling of nostalgia every time you crack open your bullet journal.
Look, it's really easy to overthink your monthly setup. But the truth is, it doesn't need to be perfect. So loosen up a bit, do something random, and have a bit of fun with it. Pick a simple pattern and repeat it to create something unique and easy!
Digital bullet journaling has a lot of benefits, and you don't have to give up artistic spreads to make the switch. I initially thought using a digital bullet journal was going to limit my creativity, but it was actually the opposite. Going digital opened me up to a whole new world of art!
