Hello February! I was really looking forward to setting up my February 2021 Bullet Journal because I knew I wanted to do something Mardi Gras themed this year. Even though I’m not from New Orleans or French, I still like to celebrate Mardi Gras. I just love the whimsy of the whole thing. Typically I’ll get the big bag of beads from the basement and Sydney and I (and sometimes Josh) will put them on and eat some muffuletta with remoulade sauce. Check out my post about it from last year HERE! It’s a fun night, way more low key than the actual Mardi Gras.
February 2021 Bullet Journal Spreads
There’s nothing more Mardi Gras than a carnival mask. I created a new stencil with a Mardi Gras theme that you can find in the shop. I used my Fancy Letter Stencil to create the title on this page. I also stuck to the Mardi Gras colors which each stand for something! Purple stands for justice, green for faith and gold for power. Finally, I made a small strand of beads at the bottom using the Mardi Grad stencil as well.
This was a fun spread to create. I used my Socially Boxed mini stencil for the daily boxes. I again used the three colors associated with Mardi Gras. I also added a fleur de lis at the bottom which is another common symbol associated with Mardi Gras using my Mardi Gras stencil. I added in my social media tracker using the Socially Boxed stencil and then wove a strand of beads around the entire spread. I absolutely love how this came out.
Master “To Do” List
I thought it would be fun to go back to my coloring page for my master to do list. I’m still working on a stencil for the check boxes so I had to do those by hand again. I’m looking forward to some coloring time with this one. It’s so soothing.
