Me and cold weather don’t get along very well. If I’m outside and can see the condensation form as I breathe or speak, then it’s too cold for me.
Now, I don’t live in an area where negative degree temperature happens, nor do I live in an area where a thermometer reading will show something like 35 degrees. I live in Southern California.
But when I went to bed last night, it was 52 degrees outside. To me, that is freeeeeeeeeezing. I didn’t turn on the heater, but I considered it. I did have four layers of blankets on me and I was severely considering busting out the down comforter.
Honestly, I think it all boils down to one thing. I’m a dress (er, stretchy pants) and flip flops type of girl, not a parka jacket, thermal wearing, boot walking, hat and glove type of girl. I can’t ever imagine myself dressing like Ralphie’s kid brother- where I can’t put my arms down (refer to the movie, A Christmas Story).
Anyway, aside from not liking the winter, I sure do love the look of winter…that is in pictures, movies, or driving through it on a road trip.
Winter is beautiful. Here’s my rendition of it, bujo style.

This is the bullet journal I use.
Then I decided to stamp *emboss some winter-y trees on the bottom of the page. I used these tree stamps, this embossing ink pad (similar), and this acrylic block (the larger block from this set will work too).
This is the silver embossing powder I used.
Because I like to have the month on each layout I create, I decided to hand-letter November on the side of the page. I used this grey brush marker (N45). To add to the winter-y effect, I added some “snow” to the letters with this white pen.
