Journal Inspiration: January

Winter is Coming…or rather, it's herrrrre! In case you missed it, December 21st was the winter solstice -- the shortest day of the year and the official first day of winter in the Northern hemisphere. Of all the seasons, winter is my least favorite. I hate being cold. Bring on the heated blankets, the heated car seats, and the hot toddies.

Despite all its faults, there some things I like about winter: It's the best season for celebrations -- Christmas, New Year's Eve, and my birthday! You never have to worry about having a winter-ready body. And it's the perfect season for living the hygge lifestyle.

 Hygge, pronounced (hue-gah or hoo-gah), is a Danish word that has no English equivalent. It's a concept of coziness, simple pleasures, and well-being. For me, hygge conjures up images that go hand and hand with the winter season -- blankets, candles, books, hot chocolate, fuzzy socks and mittens. That's why I chose it for my January's inspiration.

My monthly inspiration pages in my Canvo bullet journal help me plan and organize my projects for the month. Having a theme helps me focus. Without this type of anchor, my mind swirls with so many ideas that I get overwhelmed and never get past the ideation stage.

I started with creating a  Pinterest  board to collect images to visually define my theme. I then, printed some of the pictures to include in my journal.

I also created a word "cloud" and added stickers.
