December is nearly upon us and my mind is turning to ideas that could be used to brighten up BuJo pages with simple lettering and design ideas. And this sheet is what I’ve come up with … thus far!
If you use any of them for inspiration in your BuJos, planners, journals, or in card making or any other way I would love to see how you’ve used them!

All are hand lettered and hand drawn. I used Crayola Supertips to colour the images in. I used Uniball Unipin pens for the black lines and I worked on dot grid paper to help me keep the letter sizes and spacing consistent.
I can see that the bubble lettered ‘December’ has a weird looking M. It looks more like Decewber! Oops! Practice is needed with bubble lettering methinks.
This was a fun project, that took a bit more time than I thought it would.
Of course, the next thing for me would be to choose some of these and convert them to dangle designs, a process I cover in my upcoming book ‘A Dangle A Day’.
I’m finding that I’m enjoying hand lettering a bit more now that my conversation with myself in an earlier blog is setting in – about making it mine and accepting the little imperfections as they are what make it unique, just as they do in my drawings.
