I’m normally not one for last-minute posts, but my February bullet journal pages were up-in-the-air until about a day before this post was set to go live. I’m generally a more pro-active planner (hence the blog), but I didn’t think I understood the demands of my new job until then. I didn’t want to commit to another month of planner pages that didn’t suit my needs.
So let’s talk about my February bullet journal.
January 29 – February 4
The rest of the month looks nothing like this. I knew I needed to go more vertical, with more space for my daily schedule, but that’s about all the first week has in common with the rest of the month.
- Recollections Toon Alphabet stamps
- Sweet Stamp Shop headers (discontinued)
- Waffle Flower Weather 1 stamps
- Sweet Stamp Shop Basic Tabs (discontinued, but you can get the stickers)
- Sweet Stamp Shop Cartoon Filled Alpha
The brush pen is a Tombow Dual Brush 743.
February 5 – 11

I went red, black and grey for the second week. By the time I finished the bullet journal pages for the first week, I realized I needed an hourly plan, at least for workdays. Stuff comes at me so quickly that if I don’t block my time to take care of the Important (not the same as Urgent) tasks, I’ll get overwhelmed. I put my trackers down at the bottom, but I left the space blank so that I can decide what my objectives are each week.
For the month of February, I have objectives like cutting my soda consumption back to 60 oz, getting 56,000 steps per week, writing three times a week, etc. On a week-to-week basis, I haven’t decided exactly how I’m going to get from where I am, to where I want to be by the end of February.
In case you can’t tell, the whole layout was done with markers – a combination of Staedtler (who unfortunately didn’t put a number of name on any of their markers) and Tombow Dual Brush pens.
February 12 – 18
Valentine’s Day brought-out a bit of the romantic in me (I keep that part buried pretty deep). My fifth-grade self, who colored EVERYTHING in pink and grey, took over.
February 19 – 25
This is almost the exact same layout as the previous week, but with two header colors. There is a lot of symmetry going on in these pages. Notice that when there’s purple near the rings on one side, it’s echoed on the other. Same for the green. That was deliberate. I wanted to have the two colors spread throughout the layout, but well-balanced.
Again, the markers are all Staedtler, except the, “Day,” which is the fine point on a black Tombow Dual Brush pen. If you’ve ever bought the Tombow pens in a set, you have that black marker. Or, if you’ve bought three sets, you’ve got three of the exact same black marker.
