Navigation in One Book System

Hi all,
so today about practical things ๐Ÿ˜‰
When you decide to use a one book system, you probably look out for a very thick one. And because our lives have different areas which need to be maintained, planned thought through, you need to find a navigation system in your book.

I do use diverse tools to help me find fast what I need.

Few pages on the beginning of my book are Index pages. I do recommend to create and maintain an index, it is really helpful ๐Ÿ™‚ On the left side is index of washi tapes I use on the edges of my pages. This way I am able to find fast spreads which consider same theme.

There are also ‘temporary notes’ in my book, like weekly schedules, diverse running lists. Those are marked with an post-it tab. I move the tab as I move to the next page.

And since yesterday, there is one more orientation tool, which is also veeeery pretty:

Those tiny charms are made by Ulli Leiss from Nailygraphyย and I love them.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day,

Notebook as a success Tool

Since two months I am in a one book system. It gives me freedom and space to focus on my life, goals, things I want to achieve. I do not think of new inserts or other things, I know there are 480 Pages waiting for me to be filled with notes, ideas, plans. After 10 weeks a quarter of my book is filled, I am in one size smaller jeans and much clearer about what I want to do and where I want to go.
So it is time to share ๐Ÿ™‚

As a first step, take a notebook or a piece of paper and write down what you wish in your life. Think big, forget about boarders, conventions, restrictions. Just dream it and write it down ๐Ÿ™‚

When you are done with finding out what you want, start to gather images which are symbolizing your wishes. I do that as I go, so my own vision board is all the time in progress. Of course there is a small to go version of it in my Bullet Book, another one is my wallpaper on my cell phone and a big one is in my craft-room. It may be a lot, but it really helps me to search ways to achieve things.

Now is time to think about the small steps which help you to reach big things. I have created a spread for each of my goalsย like fit into jeans size 31, become an artist, create beautiful home. Here I write the tasks which are necessary to be done to come those goals closer. This is a sports page with a plank challenge and a plan for jogging.

And finally every week I do set three goals which concern my eating habits, fitness and art skills. And every week I do my best to achieve those goals. With my eating habits it took me several weeks to get better, but now I do check them off weekly.
DSC02585ย I hope this could inspire you and help you on your way to your goals, I would be happy to hear from you ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for reading,

The PINKDORI Bullet Book

I was strugling to find a book for my Bullet Journal. Well, my expectations were not that big: nice smooth fountain pen friendly paper, many many pages and light grid/dot grid/whatever….
I have not found one. Either the paper is not good enough or the books do have some directions on pages etc which I just don’t want to have there or the books simply had a cover I did not like.
You can imagine what I did on the end, don’t you? Yes, I made the book myself, in Pink with paper I like and with a sort of french lines.

Gib eine Beschriftung ein

Because I made the book myself, I have decided to add an elastic and pocket folder for the small nececities every journaller needs. Inside the pocket folder sits my address book and it has two pen loops for my fav fountain pens.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And because I do really like this Book/TN combo, I have decided to share it and add it into my shop. You can start to think about which paper you would like to have in your Bullet Book, if you want the additional elastic and what shall be on it etc. The Bullet book can be totally personalized as it is handmade. My version is made from Krafttex (so called Vegan Leather), but it also possible to create it from leather.
So time to close your eyes and start to assemble, you can order from May 1st-May 7thย first 5 orders will get a starter price 50% off.

Thank you for reading,

Martina

New Improved Printables in my shop

Finally I am able to come to listing of my printables. Now they are separated into two design groups:
Unbenannt-1Pinkdori one is a handmade Printable in a artsy black/white/pink style. Of course you can print it black/white and it will match every planner. It is not possible to make big custom changes on those Printables. I am happy with their quality, so just the shop presentation changed, pdf is the same as it was.

Pinkdori two is other story… I did not like the quality of them, so I have improved them significantly ๐Ÿ™‚ Because they are computer made, they are detailed and can be transformed into other colors or custom changed.
Those of you who have purchased them from my shop will get an email with link to new printables ASAP.

webpicBIGEach of my daily/weekly planners contains a star for a good day. I am colorizing them with sparkly gel pens or sticker stars. It makes me happy to see the good days shine in my planner ๐Ÿ™‚

Wish you a shiny star on each of your days,

Martina
