New Filofax Fresh From Sweden!

After a bit of a search online I found a Filofax that I thought might serve as my purse and Filofax. I found it on the Filofax Sweden site, so did a quick currency conversion and then pondered for a bit, but on Sunday I decided to purchase it. I came home from work today (Wednesday) and it had arrived! Brilliant service in my opinion! I opened the parcel and tipped out the contents to find my new organiser, the invoice sheet and some banded diary inserts. I opened the…

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: 2361

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,…

Custom Inserts

I have been using the week per view insert that came with my Filofax (which I like – bought one the same layout for my A5 as that had a vertical one and I can’t get on with that sort, had the A5 prior to my personal sized Songbird purchase too). However, I am still not convinced this is the best set up so I have also been trying a Dodo pad insert as well. I like the colourfulness and the images in the Dodo but I am not getting…
