A Splash Of The Outdoors

I thought I would put something nice inside the front of my Filofax to remind me of the outdoors. I love this photo! I took it when I was in Sweden in July/August 2011 for the 22nd World Scout Jamboree. We went on a nature hike around a local nature park and I just had to take this photo! It reminds me of all the fun I had and all the friends and memories I’ve made. Would love to go back soon. Views: 2391

Filofax Inserts Update

Well it’s been a few days of using my new set up of a month overview (on 2 pages) with day per page behind it followed by the next month etc. behind that. So far so good! I am really liking how I can see my day in front of me so I know what I need to do when. I have mainly been writing my brief lesson plans for the day time hours but have written in when I am supposed to be packing up to go home, learning…

Month overview sorted!

As I have been procrastinating about doing anything work related as I have been craving some “me” time I have now made myself some month per view pages on light blue paper! This was the 2nd trial – it worked ok! I used the month per view template from Philofaxy and instead of using the Excel sheet it wanted I used the A5 one and re-linked all the months and days. I did this because I got very confused with the personal sized Excel sheet! I also changed the paper…

A5 pages in my personal are annoying

So last week I put some A5 pages I’d made into my personal (punched along the top short edge and folded) so I could write more on the pages. Turns out I don’t like this and it looks messy. Am also not sure if I like the week to view with dpp in between, mainly because there are 7 days in a week but that needs 8 sides of paper and therefore one of next weeks days is not where it should be. For this reason I might resort to…

You know you’re addicted when…

It’s late, you’re tired, you got into bed and the light is out but then you pick up your iPhone and look at several blogs about Filofax and their owners and all the creative stuff they have inside theirs. You look at the clock – 3 hours ago you should have been in bed (hopefully asleep). True you didn’t get into bed until about an hour ago but still that means for 45 minutes or so you have been clicking and scrolling your way through pages of posts and comments,…

Oh Filofax why do you mock us?

I have just spent twice as long hole punching using my Filofax brand A5 punch than I did cutting all the pages in half using my trimmer – despite having to take the trimmer apart because I put too much paper in for it to cut and the blade moved. The hole punch is seriously slow, not even slightly helpful as you can only punch about 2 sheets of regular printer paper at once using it. I am fairly sure my muscles got more of a workout than a weight…

Stationery Crazy

This month I have gone all stationery crazy and have sorted myself out with a new personal sized Filofax, new inserts for it from Paperchase, a new Lamy fountain pen and Dodo pad inserts for both my new personal sized Filofax and my existing A5 sized Filofax in order to test them out. I am loving my new Filofax; it is a purple Songbird in personal size, so a little smaller than my A5 and therefore lighter and more portable. I like my A5 Filofax, it’s a zipped Lyndhurst but…
