The 100 Day Project 2018 – Flowers

The 100 day project 2018, Flowers, BLOG
This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series The 100 Day Project

We are now 3 weeks into this year's 100 Day Project! If you've been following along here on my blog, you will know I have divided my 100 Day Project into 10 sets of 10 days. Each set of 10 days has it's own theme to focus on using watercolour inks and gouache.

For the first 10 days I worked on Night Skies and Galaxies, but for this second set I have been working on Flowers.

I am so pleased to have made it through the first 10 days of The 100 Day Project! This is the third year I am attempting to do this and I am determined to complete it this year!

If you aren't sure what this project is all about, I wrote about it in a previous post where I explained how it all started and how it works. In this post I will be showing you what I have created over the past 10 days and I will also be revealing my new theme for the next ten days!

My 100 Day Project for 2018

The 100 Day Project 2018 BLOG
This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series The 100 Day Project

It's that time of the year again: The 100 Day Project has started and I am so excited about it this year!

I first heard about this incredible challenge in 2015, soon after falling ill, and decided it was a good way to keep busy while I recovered at home. (At that point I did not think I would still be at home 3 years later!)

I try to take part each year, but I have yet to complete a whole 100 days. I am hopeful and quite determined that 2018 will be my year to finish it. I'm changing it up this year and can't wait to share my project with you!

Bullet Journal Layout, March 2018

March 2018 Bujo layout BLOG

My journaling has evolved much over the past few years since I discovered the Bullet Journal system. I love that this method is so flexible and streamline. The fact that my BuJo can be whatever I want it to be and if I change my mind or my style from one week to the next, it's perfectly fine and it still works!

At the start of this year I ordered a beautiful new journal, my goal was to start this year in style, but chronic illness is quite unpredictable and I ended up not really getting started on anything until now. I hope you will enjoy this little tour through this month's layout in my new Bujo - I love it and cannot wait to use it daily!

Bullet Journal: When time passes you by

Empty Bujo spread

Have you ever opened your journal to find you’ve skipped a whole week of your life? I did that today. I was expecting to open my journal to the next clean page, so I could set up this week’s spread and discovered that last week’s spread was still completely empty. Not only was is empty, but I hadn’t even finished setting it up!

If you have a chronic illness, you can probably relate. Flares can be so draining that you don’t even manage the simplistic of tasks like picking up your book to read, or opening your journal to see what’s on your to-do list. Partly because the book is just too heavy and partly because having things not ticked is hard to accept sometimes. We don’t like all those lists of undone tasks.Continue reading
