Filo Fancy

In the past few years I’ve gradually become increasingly disorganized =(; almost to the point of being unrecognizable.  I didn’t remedy this realization immediately…

One day I was rifling through my drawers (like a crazy lady) looking for blank Christmas cards and found my old planners from early 2000.  I remembered how much I used to love writing in them and having them close at hand like friends who wanted to see me succeed in the world.  I never gave up on making lists but did sadly give up on them.  They were too tiny to carry all that I wanted, even for 7″x 5″s; chalk it up to being a flaky Gemini.  The organization I had worked for also kept me dependent on their FREE desk-sized calendars and 8.5″x 10″ Weekly Monthly planners (with the nice two page monthly spread) so there was no need to think outside the box.

Then, someone mentioned Filofax recently… and I thought back to how dull they were when they first came out =( yuk!  Nothing like those ridiculously cute Kate Spades.   Though something in me wanted more out of life; I wasn’t living the way I wanted to so I was led to You Tube to check out current day Filofaxs (gotta love You Tube).  I couldn’t believe how nice they became; a real turnaround!  I’m at present moment smitten with the Malden (Vintage Pink [sadly discontinued] & Purple [only available across the pond in A5 but Personal size still available in the U.S. in limited quantities]), Finsbury (Raspberry [currently still available]), Chameleon (Raspberry [also regrettably discontinued]), and Luxe in A5 (Black Currant [out in 2013]).  What can I say?  I’m a sucker for purple =).  I’m also interested in converting a Filofax Compact into a functional wallet and thensome.

When I get the chance, I will post a special blog regarding my new Raspberry Finsbury and how I have it set up.  I will also include other helpful references just in case you would like to begin your own Filofax journey.  ‘Til next time…
