End of Month/Year In Review ~Short version (February/2016-2017)
Hey there My Journaling lovelies! (Guys included)
What is a Welcome Page?
As in Welcome to a new month or a new year?
Today we’re gonna be talking about End of Month in review again, only in a different format. The one I shared with you in lesson #15 was quite extensive and I’m sure there are those of you who, even if you found it helpful, you might not want to have yours be as extensive. And…that’s okay. You can do this anyway you’d like, no problem…EVER!! I am only providing many ‘Options’ you can TRY.
Actually, as you can see by the photo pictured, this one is NOT month end, but year end. I worked it into my End of 2016 and beginning of 2017. However, you could simply make it fit February/March or March/April, and so on.
Just create something similar to the two page ‘collection’ I have provided OR…make up your own.
You can add in what you accomplished in February (or March) and what you hope to accomplish in March (or April) and so on…depending on whether you have pages left for February or not.
You could also decide to ‘fit’ this one in between your dailies if you have no room between February and March and still wish to include it. Just make sure you add the page(s) to your index (or add a washi tape tab to your page…see edge of pages) so you can find it easily later.
To Be or Not To Be a Washi
Take note…that washi you see in the photo is NOT regular washi tape. I drew these ones in. It is fun to do, if you have No washi and you’d like a bit of a splash of color. It’s easy and a cute accent to add in.
Okay…these are your steps to an easier End of Month Review:
1. Draw the previous month to the left in a box
2. Now do the same thing for the next month on the right
3. Next, draw or add your own washi tape to the sides of the boxes
4. Then fill in the things you accomplished in the previous month and the things you wish to accomplish in the next month.
5. Then at the next month’s end you can compare to see if you accomplished all the goals you set for yourself. If not, just add them to the next month’s list of goals…and so on.
