Try It Thursday? Way Slower Than A Speeding Bullet…

My #oneword for 2019 is: Embrace. I’m opening my arms wide to life this year – even on Tuesday, the day so often seen as ho-hum.

I’m giving poor maligned Tuesday a hug.

What’s This Try It Tuesday thing, anyway?

It’s one part how-to, one part home lab, and one part journal – a way for me to explore some things I’ve always wanted to try, but never quite got around to.

Oh…and I record every step of the way.

I’m hoping it will inspire me, and encourage you to, well – Try It!

How It Works:

I rotate through four Try It projects, and chronicle the whole process: my initial research, gathering materials, the actual nuts, bolts, laughter and tears (or laughing so hard I cry, as the case may be) along the way…all of it!

When I finish one Try It, I’ll do a wrap-up and reveal its replacement!

Today’s Try It Tuesday Is:

Bullet Journaling

It’s a #babysteps beginning….

I know, I know – it’s not Tuesday anymore. I wanted to have this done before Tuesday, but life has been chaotic in ways that weren’t always lovely. So, instead of running early, I’m two days late.  

My progress has been modest, to put it generously. I’ve managed to create one spread. It’s not quite complete, but it’s a February calendar, so I can finish it up as the month goes on.

I got a cool link on bullet journaling for writers  from a friend but haven’t even peeked at it yet.

I did embellish my page just a little…but we’ll have to wait till my next update (hopefully actually on a Tuesday!) to see where I go from here.

My collection of pretties, minus the washi tape.

Will I end up with loveliness, chaos – or a liberal blend of both?

The only way I’m going to find out is by trying. You can find out by popping by next Tuesday to see what kind of (potentially beautiful) mess I’ve gotten myself into this time.

If you don’t want to wait that long, follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram, where I’ll be posting updates randomly along the way.

What’s On Tap for Next Week?
