January bullet journal Inspiration
In this post, we are going to look at January bullet journal themes to give you inspiration for your own bullet journal and to hopefully get those creative juices flowing! I actually dislike the phrase creative juices, is there another word we can use?!
As you know, many bullet journal creators love to have a theme for every month of their bullet journal. It’s a way of using their creativity and making the bullet journal their own. Others, love to keep it simple. It’s all up to you.
Creating a monthly cover page allows you to keep your months separate at a glance, like a page divider in a planner. It’s a nice way of keeping things visually organized.
Let’s take a look at what other bujo creators are doing, and see if we can inspire you to come up with your own amazing themes and pages.
