This blog series has become the foundation of The Petite Planner. It’s where I refer people who are struggling with getting started and finding answers to their questions. And, while it covers all the basics, there is one thing that isn’t included in this series, adding creative touches to your journal.
While it’s not necessary, most of the people I talk to got into bullet journaling because it allows for flexibility and creativity. But, within the same conversation, I often hear people say they can’t doodle or do lettering. And that lack of confidence hits me in the feels, hard. So, I created a course that can help you become confident in your creative skills while learning how to create beautiful lettering, doodles, and layouts.
