Simplifying: Evolution of my Weekly Spread

On Instagram (@bluepapertrail), I’m participating in April’s #planwithmechallenge hosted by Boho Berry, Tiny Ray of Sunshine, and Pretty Prints and Paper (check them out!).

Their prompt today is all about simplifying, which for me, has been something I’ve had to do due to time constraints as a busy student. I’ve also realized that for better or for worse, I value functionality over artistic expression, which means unnecessary extras that don’t help me plan usually get cut. However, I am trying to work more on my creative pursuits elsewhere through photography and drawing!

Below is a gallery of how my weekly spreads have evolved through the past year since I started bullet-journaling. Click for the captions; I’ve included some commentary to explain why I added and cut certain elements. It doesn’t have all my spreads, but just the ones I felt were most indicative of my progression. You can see all of my spreads from last semester in this postSubscribe (on the right) to be among the first to see all of my weekly spreads from this semester in a future post!
