IT’S OFFICIALLY PRE-SEASON! Since February I’ve been waiting for football season to start and it’s finally time to get back into the swing of things. In this post I’ll be sharing how I set up the Steelers schedule in my traveller’s notebook. The one I’m using is from Michaels (better known as a string journal), but the concept is the same. I had made a dashboard schedule for my Happy Planner and I couldn’t resist making one for my journal.

I wanted to create a different alternative to share with you all to track your favorite sports team. Now, I have a Happy Planner and I love my Happy Planner, but I don’t carry it around with me everywhere I go. I also don’t sit at a bar and track every single play of a football game either. With that being said, I usually just check off who won, write the score, and that’s it.
Since I’m tracking my favorite memories of 2016 in my journal, I had to include the football season. So far I have pages decorated for this past Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day (which is also my anniversary), my last day at my job (so weird having to now say old job), and the Wrestlemania 32 match card (yes I’m a wrestling fan).
When creating this page, I wanted to do something different. I used a ‘Pittsburgh’ banner from ThePoliceWifePlanner (formerly known as LittleLullabyByDiana) and then wrote in Steelers. I could’ve used black letters, but I didn’t have any on hand. I then used the same circles that I used in my previous DIY with some double stick tape to track the regular season games. I placed them sporadically across the page and just wrote in the game and date.
Unlike my previous tracker, I did add preseason. I had 4 flags left over from my HunnyBitDesigns printable which worked out great to track the 4 preseason games.
As for when the STEELERS go to the post-season, which they WILL, that’s a design for another time.
