We see it everywhere! Christmas is close so I thought: Why not add it to our Bullet Journal as well? Right, no good reason not to do it so here you go - with the Weekly Spread, a Sloth under the Christmas Tree.
If you ever googled "sloth" you know these cute little things are about pure cuteness! Or maybe you watched the movie "Zoomania"* (If you haven't, it's a MUST DO 😉 ) and you see how a sloth can drive you crazy.
You do not need a lot of material for your Weekly Spread "A Sloth under the Christmas Tree". Here is what I've used.

Let's start drawing the Sloth under the Christmas Tree
Drawing the Sloth starts with scribing its lines with a pencil. If you are beginner and don't know how to do it, no worries, just go to our store and grab the FREE Workshop Sheet :D. It will help you to exercise drawing the Sloth, the Christmas Tree and the weekly spread as well.
Scribing the Sloth
Let's start our weekly spread by scribing the sloth. It doesn't have to be perfect if you use the pencil first. Then you can rub off all the unnecessary lines.
Drawing the Outline
For this drawing I like a bold outline. So I go over what I have just drawn with the Stabilo Pen.
Colouring the Sloth
Adding Circles to your Weekly Spread
I use a coin here to draw my circles. Again I use a pencil, if I don't get the distance right and not make all seven circles (one of each day of the week) fit, I can get rid of them and start again.
Colouring the Circles for the Weekly Spread
Once again I use my Stabilo Pen to get an even filled circle. Be careful at this point, you cannot change things anymore.
Adding the Week Days with the White Sharpie
I know you can do what I'm doing here also without a white Sharpie. But, honestly, it gets much more decent this way. I can fill the entire circle and then just add the letter on top without worrying how I fill the circle.
Drawing the Check Boxes into the Weekly Spread
I put just a few check boxes for now next to each day of the week. Of course you can easily add more at a later time but having too many there quiet stresses me because it feels as if I never do enough.
