Lulu Lime Designs Review and Giveaway

I love journaling and I love fountain pens, but I haven’t yet found a good insert for my traveler’s notebook (TN) that works well with my fountain pens. Because I can’t stand ink bleeding through my pages (essentially making the back side unusable), I tend to buy thicker paper and inserts and now have a […]

How to Make an Art Journal

When I first got into art, I wanted a place to store it all rather than random pages strewn all about my room. A book that I could refer to and flip through and be inspired from. A place to destress and express myself and learn and grow my art skills (I’m a complete beginner […]

Doodle Challenge Printable

I love doodling. I don’t go overboard, I am not super talented, but it is a TON of fun and I love the added dimension in my planning pages. So many people look at doodles in planners and write themselves off with a simple “I can’t do that.” I was one of those people. But […]

5 Tips to Teach Math (When Your Child is Falling Behind)

Teaching math is hard enough on it’s own, what do you do when your child is falling behind? There is so much pressure that we face as homeschool mom’s to “keep up” with grade levels and teaching certain topics in certain time frames. I think it is easy to forget that the pressures we feel […]

S1E6: An Inside Look at Unschooling

Unschooling gets a bad rep and it kind of drives me nuts. I am not an unschooler but I love the philosophy behind it and I am working towards finding the freedom and flexibility to adopt this homeschool style. It has the potential to offer our kids so much more of a tailored education, to […]

Why I Have a Planning Routine

When I talk about planning, I get either one of two responses. The first group of people is all ears, their eyes light up and they soak in every word. They want to see my planner, my planning supplies, show me theirs, it is like two giddy school girls getting together and gushing about a […]

Homeschool Bullet Journal Video

If there is one thing I have learned as a homeschool mom, it is that each of us learn in a different way. I like to create content custom tailored to the way you naturally enjoy hearing it. If you prefer to read this post, head here for a picture walk through and description of […]

My Homeschool Bullet Journal Setup

As a homeschool mom of 5, I have literally tried every planner out there. I tried all the little homeschool planners with all their little boxes and it was never enough. It was either too much of one thing or too little of another. It wasn’t tailored to my family, to our unique needs. I […]

100+ Bullet Journal Collection Ideas

Bullet journaling (a customized form of planning where you make it what you need it to be) is only as helpful as you make it. I find that when I try to emulate other people’s planners it starts to become something that isn’t as tailored to my life. So I wanted to give you 100+ […]

Math Lessons for a Living Education Review

When I first heard of Math Lessons for a Living Education, I was intrigued, in a very reserved manner. You see, I have tried a LOT of different math programs. I have learned (the hard way) that math can make or break your homeschool! I was hesitant to try something new because I had worked […]

S1E5: Is Traditional Homeschooling Right for Me?

Traditional homeschooling is a style of education that closely resembles the school system. In homeschool circles, it is often referred to as “playing school” because you try to mimic the look, feel, and rhythm of a regular school day in your home. It can work wonderfully for some moms and children, but for a good […]

Top Bullet Journal Tips I Wish I Would Have Known

It is hard to believe it has been almost 1 year since I first heard about bullet journaling. I spent hours pinning and stalking various bullet journal blogs and Instagram accounts and compiling ideas. I spent literally weeks finding what resources I should get and reading reviews. Then I had to set up my inserts […]

An Amazing Planner Subscription Box

I love all things planning. Ever since I was a kid, I was teased mercilessly that my ideal present could be bought at Staples. When I was 8 I was given a leather accordion file folder case and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world (I think I still have that!). The […]

Plan With Me: Setting Up a New Month

I LOVE watching short little video’s of people setting up their weekly or monthly spreads. There is something about seeing someone draw on paper that is therapeutic and soothing. It inspires and calms at the same time, and you just can’t stop watching, you need to see the masterpiece unfold! That’s why when I was […]

If you are new to bullet journaling, you probably have seen that most pictures are using the Leuchtturm1917 as their bullet journal.
