Around The Web -- Bullet Journaling


Bullet journaling is very popular right now.  You can find a lot of inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest; there are also Facebook groups for bullet journaling.  Bullet journaling has its own hashtag #bujo.  The concept of bullet journaling was started by Ryder Carroll; you can find more at bulletjournal.com.

My first weekly spread in my bullet journal

This past week's daily pages.

The genealogy community is getting on the bullet journaling bandwagon as well.  Here are some genealogists who are sharing their bullet journal experience:



Another page of dailies and my favorite mug filled with some pens and colored pencils.

My favorite Bullet Journaler is Boho Berry.  Kara is very creative and shares everything that she does.  She also has an Etsy shop where she sells stickers that she creates for you to use in your bullet journal. You can also find a lot of inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest and a Google search will give you lots to look at as well.

I was using Evernote for my planner but I found that I did not use it like I thought I would.  After being in front of the computer all day at work there were nights that the last thing I wanted to do was sit in front of my computer.  Writing things down helps me remember them.  I can take my journal with me in my purse.  So far the bullet journal is working great for me!  It is much easier to keep track of what is going on and any notes or other things I need to remember.

Do you bullet journal??

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

  LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that) American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again. A close up! HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next. Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

OneNote | A Look Inside

I still have a few more notes to move over from Evernote but I am loving OneNote.  I keep to do lists, goals, projects, ideas, genealogy research and so much more in OneNote.  So what does my setup look like?  Lets take a look! {I usually use OneNote 2016 but I have tried the Windows 10 app and it works just as good.} The first screen shot below is OneNote 2016 and the second is from the Windows 10 app.  My first notebook is my task management notebook.  In this notebook I have my Inbox, which is my default section for incoming stuff, calendar and lists.  {Emails that I have sent to OneNote and screen clips go in my Inbox section.} The next notebook is for my blog, and then the Genealogy notebook is for research notes, then I have the GBT notebook which I use for notes and reminders for GeneaBloggersTribe, the Reference notebook is for things that don't belong in one of the other notebooks,  and the last notebook is the Archive. Lets take a closer look at some o

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post
