As someone who does very many crafts – I always have some sort of project I am working on. If I am being honest, I will more likely have several projects going at one time! Oftentimes, I start more projects than I can handle at one time because I get so excited for my newest idea! As always, my bullet journal has been great for solving this problem!

This page works great for all sorts of things, from house projects to crafts and could even be used for work or school. I personally use it primarily for knitting and crochet, as this is where I personally need the most organizational help.
In each of my journals, I have kept a project page. Each one has a key to show the status of each project as planned, in progress, or completed. Having a page to keep track of my projects forces me to consistently count the number of projects I have ongoing. Additionally, instead of starting a new project each time I have an idea, I can make a note of it to make sure I don’t lose the idea, and save it for later, rather than starting right now. This past year, I have also added a personal goal of having fewer than five in-progress projects at one time.
An unexpected effect of having this layout is that it has helped me keep my supplies organized as well. By keeping track of my projects, I can also avoid buying supplies for new projects before I am done with a previous one which results in a lot less clutter. Additionally, I am able to make plans before purchasing anything, which results in a lot fewer impulse buys!
Of course, it is also very satisfying to be able to look back at everything in a neat and orderly list! I have really enjoyed using these pages both to plan and organize. I also use them as a method of self-affirmation, since every time I open them up, I can’t help but think “Wow, I have done so much! This is great!” If you are someone who often has projects going on, this might be a great layout for you to try! Maybe even have several for different types of projects!
