Hi Friends! I’m Laura from @planningmyday on Instagram Today we’ll be talking about creating a Spring time bucket list for your journal. Now that’s a fun topic that calls for a yummy cup of your favorite coffee or tea!
I love writing up a bucket list for each new season or holiday. The bucket list reminds me to slow down long enough to make them come to be. It reminds me of all the things I want to do that truly make my heart happy!
“Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out.” Oliver Wendell Holmes
Isn’t it funny how we can become so busy doing LIFE, that we find we’ve stopped living LIFE! We come to find we’ve been moving so fast we’ve lost sight of what was most important. Bucket lists help you redefine that every new season!
"Enjoy the little things in life, because one day you will look back, and realize they were big things."
Sitting down each new season to compile my bucket list.. gives me pause for thought! What’s important? What makes me happy? What brings about a Memory I’ll want to write in my journal? It’s the BIG things and the SMALL things!
You know what else is really interesting… my bucket list changes from year to year! Don’t you think it’d be fun to create a bucket list journal! Each year Create 6-8 bucket lists fo different categories, and then see how they change from year to year, as you get older, and as your priorities and focuses change!
For now though, let’s create our Spring time bucket list!

Steps To Decorating Your Own Spring Bucket List
I love to use stamps, therefore I started with some fun spring florals!
To color this I chose a stippling effect that you’ll see better in the video!
Here is any easy way to write large letters if you haven’t mastered the art of handwriting AKA me!
Using the brush pen make all downward strokes and then using the fine tip end, fill in all the upward strokes.
Enjoy this video where I show you how I created my Spring time bucket list journal spread!
