Joyous December 2021

Joyous ๐ŸŽ„ Christmas Bullet Journal Setup

Hello friends,

Here we are, at the end of 2021, and you have no idea for your Christmas bullet journal setup.

This month, I create a special holiday design for my December bullet journal spreads. My husband and I were relocating to a Northern country in the autumn. And now here I am, enjoying my first winter in Tallinn (Estonia).

Christmas Bullet Journal Inspirations

I chose the Christmas-y theme, but I don’t want to just use the Christmas trees. Well, part of it because, this year we cannot build a Christmas tree, yet. We’re still adjusting to the climate, and, we didn’t prepare the budget for it. Frugal life, baby! ๐Ÿ˜†

Hygge: All Things Speaks Comfy, Warmth and Enjoying Good Time with People We Love

I put some simple doodles of things that resonate with Christmas and winter. Last month, although I didn’t post my bullet journal spreads here, I actually create the Hygge theme. But I was feeling so off, and I didn’t fill most of my spreads.

And still, with the spirit of hygge in me, I combine it with December and winter theme, which is mostly about Christmas and holidays. I put some Christmas decorations such as gingerbread, crystal balls, red and white candy cane, and pine branches. As for the hygge vibe, I put my favourite things here. Those are tea, hot chocolate and black coffee, candles, and a scarf. I can already sense the warmth just by typing and thinking about it.

My Spreads for December 2021

Calendar + Memories

I use some Estonian words here and there, as a way to learn. Just little by little. At least I remember the days’ and months’ names. For the memory part, I don’t want to put them on the end part of the journal, since it will be harder for me to pinpoint the date and the event. So I put them side by side.

Calendar + Memories

Deep Intentions

This month, I planned to finish my course on Master YouTube by SlowGrowth.com. But I gotta admit, I have had a focus difficulty lately, and feel rushed, even though I am no longer taking design projects. I think I need to get back on my daily walking and meditation session.

Deep Intentions

Projects & Habits Tracker

I have 4 personal projects that I need to focus on by this month, e.g. content planning for 2022 and maybe changing the format of my content. Well, let’s see…

Weekly Spreads

For my weekly spreads, I just allocated small space for my to-do list and events, as I plan to transition them to a digital journal.

But the special part of this weekly spread is the cooking or food diary, where I take notes of what I ate on that day. It helps me to track what I ate, and how does it relate to my allergy. And I also put reminders and the top intention of that week to remind me the most special things to do. And the notes part is allocated for gratitudes; what I received that week that makes me a better, happier, or kinder person.


I usually put this spread at the very end of my monthly bullet journal setup, where I put all of our expenses, places we’ve visited, things we’ve done, people we met, etc. It is intended to summarise the week for me.

All in all…

I have a separate daily journal to write down what I feel or think that day, and also another bookkeeping journal to take notes of our finances such as income, savings, debt, fixed and variable expenses, and investments.

I can talk about it another day, promise.

And that’s all for my December 2021 bullet journal setup. I hope you can be inspired by it, and be gentler and more mindful as we’ll step in a new year soon.
