For awhile I’ve been trying to come up with a new blog project that I could get really excited about. I wanted something that would give me a reason to share more unique crochet patterns with you (since that is what so many people love) but also something that would feel really meaningful and inspiring to me.

In looking through all of this inspiration, I started wondering how people who crochet are using their bullet journals.
