Earlier this month we were fortunate to have a lovely group of country ladies attend aBullet Journal workshop run by the very busy Jo, from The Paddock Rose. Jo is a super highly organised lady that runs a couple of business, a homestead, a troop of children, a calendar of travel and a high social life as well as her millions of projects on the go – including her gorgeous craft business, The Paddock Rose.
Over Devonshire tea, Jo introduced the concept of Bullet Journalling - a really invaluable organisational system that collates all the things ‘you need to do’ out of your head– and from all the other media forms that are in your life, into one simple paper book system. Jo’s an expert at it. Her teachings touched on how her simple method helps keep track of one’s past present and future dates, deadlines and dreams. I know personally since doing the class and following her method I have no idea how I coped in my life prior to the day!
All enjoyed a few glasses of bubbles in the gorgeous Pemberley Homestead grounds after the workshop. Then it was hands on deck for table set-up and a we were privileged to get a little farm garden love, provided to us by Teresa, who showed us her skill at garden foliage foraging & creating some lovely flower arrangements for our table setting.
Chatting with old friends and meeting new - it was lovely to watch new friendships forming and future dates for catchups being made. The day was a perfect mix of workshop & potluck longtable lunch and catchups.
Clutching our new workbook diaries and a head full of ideas and new friendship contacts, I really look forward to where we will be popping up for the next workshop and what will be on the cards then. As we learnt with this one, there is a bounty of talent in the area and a real keenness to skill share.
I’ll keep you all posted.
