I know that one of the reasons why I started the bullet journal was that everything was in one place… all my doodles, ideas, habits, plans, appointments, personal devotions, prayers, everything. And I still stand by that. You should try to use your personal bullet journal (bujo) for as many functions as possible. However, when I thought about adding gardening-related things to my personal bujo, I found it difficult because gardening is something that happens all-year round, there is information that I will be referencing frequently, and the subject of gardening is so much more than just a collection (i.e. books to read, shows to watch, places to go). I wanted my gardening-related pages to be more than just the plants I wanted to buy, the layout I wanted the garden to have, and which local nurseries/greenhouses I’ve visited. So I did what I thought I’d never do… I started a second bujo.

In my quest to learn watercoloring, I searched high and low for an affordable materials for a beginner like me. I wanted to invest in quality tools, but knew that I couldn’t afford the very best. So I’ve compiled a list of the tools that you might find helpful if you want to try watercoloring yourself! If you have suggestions based on your experiences, I’d love to hear from you!

It worked out perfectly that the first bullet journal ran out of pages as the year was ending. So I grabbed a new notebook and got started on the new year!
