November, not yet winter but already cold. Time to put the winter tire on the car. In some countries or up in the hills the snow arrives. For me it is a good reason to get a coffee. It is also a good reason for me to prepare a tea for my wife. I’m more of a coffee person while my wife is a tea person. Tea is a returning theme in her bullet journals.
I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I or my family use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

While it is getting colder outside more tea is prepared inside.
November weekly planners
Not all months start on Monday as the first day. 2018 the first of November is on Thursday. My wife decided to start with some green colors for the first weekly.
New week comes with a new color such as purple this time. When you decorate your bullet journal you can buy all different stickers or you can print any pictures you have.
It is time for some red and some darker reds as well. Colors… so many different ones available as a result my girls ended up with all different color pencils over the time. I recommend you get as many as you can so when it comes to coloring you won’t lack that one color that matches your idea. While you choose your pencils and you see the different prices consider trying the higher end ones as well. I was watching my daughters and my wife buying different color pencil sets. Then I saw that the higher quality pencils started to get shorter and shorter. Are they used up faster? Do they need sharpening more often? I had to realise that they are simply used a lot more often due to their better quality.
Blue is here. I like the color blue a lot. This month is full with all different colors.
November comes to its last week. This week the color is peach.
Materials and tools used in these pages
Month over month your tool set will become bigger and bigger. Too late for me to start my own tracker on how many different color pencils we have in the house. How many stickers arrived from around the globe. But I know it can be time-consuming to find the right ones so let me give you a helping hand with some advertisements below here. All I recommend we trust and use so feel free to get some for yourself.
Color pencil sets from Faber-Castell
We found these pencils really good quality and we highly recommend them. The more colors you have the easier you color your pages.
Sakura Pigment Liner Micron pens
Sakura pens are top quality and really easy to work with. You find these pens in all different colors and sizes. A few colors and some different sizes from the blacks will help you with all your drawings.
Staedtler Pigment Liner Sketch Pens
As a really good alternative my wife started testing and using the pigment liner sketch pens from Staedtler. So far she is very happy with them and such she recommends these.
Stabilo Fine Liner Pens
Another high quality pen on the market. They are popular due to the number of available colors they offer.
