Hello Planning Mashers!

For this month you guys on Instagram chose me to give a try to firefly theme. So today I’ll be sharing with you my August setup, as well as inspirations from other creators who gave a try to this theme in their Bullet Journals.
In case you’re new here – every month I ask my Instagram followers to choose what theme they would like me to create in my Bullet Journal next, so if you want to be a part of these decisions – be sure to follow me on Instagram!
Psss, for more summer theme ideas for your Bullet Journal, check out my post: Bullet Journal Theme Ideas To Try This Summer.
There is also a Plan With Me video at the end of the post, so be sure to scroll down and give it a look!
First of course a quick rundown of my supplies.
But I thought I’d also share here some other cool supplies you can use for the firefly theme.
I feel like a great idea would be to use a gold gel pen to draw the fireflies. It will give an extra sparkle to your pages.
If you’re into watercolor, you might want to give a try to gold watercolor paints by Kuretake. I have a set myself and they look stunning! Will be amazing for this theme.
- [6 Colors] Golden pearl-tinted Gansai for professional artists and crafters.
- Ideal for calligraphy, illustrations, brush lettering and more!
- [Brush Dexterity] Gansai Tambi Pans are much larger than typical watercolor pans, giving you the ability to use both small or large brushes quite easily.
If you need some help drawing, MoxieDori has an awesome stencil for this theme – a jar! The best part is that it’s also multifunctional – you can use this jar for fireflies, or for cooking spreads or maybe for a savings tracker.
This is usually where I talk about my take on this theme.
Fireflies in jars are classic, but I really felt like I wanted to add a bit of a special twist to this theme.
I started thinking – fireflies, nighttime, the moon, flowers, mystique, crystals. So I decided to recreate a mystic magical atmosphere that came to my mind with this theme.
That way I can also add other elements, like stars, moon, crystals, and of course – flowers. It came out pretty nicely if you ask me, I hope you’ll enjoy these pages as well.
This looks pretty convoluted, but I did have a lot of things I wanted to include this month.
July has spent getting things together and preparing, but August is the month to apply all my productivity techniques and preparations and start getting more shit done!
That’s why in this monthly log you see some new things, such as the main focus area next to my to-do list.
It’s time to play catchup for all the time I lost while being on quarantine in the USA and get on track with all the projects I wanted to complete this year.
My main focus for August is a secret so far, but I’m sure you’ll like it.
Before you decide to leave me a mean comment (please don’t! I have a very gentle heart) – I know I lost “a” in my header somehow.
This really is just another day for my BuJo, I miss letters or misspell all the time. When you draw instead of writing letters it’s easy to get distracted and miss it. And I didn’t even notice the missing “a” until I sat down to edit the photos.
I really loved the way I did my trackers in my Space Themed Bullet Journal Setup, so I decided to keep both trackers on one spread once again.
Gratitude log is pretty much always in my journal in one way or another.
For August I decided to go with one line a day. Even though I do prefer the way doodly gratitude log works, I realize that it’s easier to do it in writing.
Plus in a way it’s more impactful – when you write your feelings out you tend to put more meaning to it.
A pretty unusual spread for the month, but hopefully it will be of great use!
As I mentioned before, July is my time to prepare everything to be my most productive in August. This spread is just another step towards it.
I want to work on how to improve my weeklies to make myself more productive.
I need to be concentrated on my work more, procrastinate less, and check how else I can bring myself to better performance.
This spread has a few ideas on how my weeklies can help me with that, and I added a results section so by the end of the month I can analyze my efforts and see if it worked and if it needs any more modifications.
Here are my weekly spreads for August. Ever since I started using one page weekly spreads in July, I really can’t stop.
For my Nuua journal, they are completely perfect, since their spreads are a bit larger and seem to b absolutely enough for all my weekly tasks.
As always here is my favorite page ever month – monthly memory page.
These pages are my favorites to create each month, and if you want to learn how to create yours, check my post How To: Memory Keeping In Your Bullet Journal.
But! For August I decided to record my August memory page PWM as a YouTube video, so you can take a look below.
I would also extra appreciate it if you subscribe to my YouTube as well, I do my best to create fun weekly videos for you.
