Filofax 2014: Week 6


Happy Monday! It's time for my end of the week Filofax post :) As you can see, I use both an A5 and Personal size planner to organize my life. Feel free to take a peek inside my A5 Original and Personal Domino. To Stay Organized in 2014, I added some extra inserts to my A5 planner! Just in case you missed last week's post, you can find it here.

FF 2014: Week 6 in My A5 Original & Personal Domino

Here is a quick breakdown of what I use my Personal and A5 Filofax for. Both follow the same color-coding system. My [Personal] Domino holds all of my personal notes, family details, appointments/events, paydays & bills, contacts, as well as notes specific to my A5. For my blog and Project Life planning, crafts, online order tracking, and Household stuff [such as chore lists, menu planning, and important financial details], I use my A5. Since my Personal FF is my everyday planner, I duplicate some entries into it because I like knowing exactly what I have going on in that part of my life.

FF 2014: Week 6 in My Personal Domino

It was a pretty crazy week recovering from a nasty bug and trying to play catch up on all of the projects I fell behind with. Suprisingly, I had a very productive week! And I couldn't have done it without my color-coding system. As for decorations, I dug into my stash of Valentine/Love themed washi tape. On top, I have pink argyle tape cut into a banner. Love Grid washi lines the bottom of the pages. [Both designs from Downtown Tape

I also have a Martha Stewart dewdrop [which I move from week to week] for a little reminder, and a pink up&up magnetic clip to hold my pages together. A Paper Addict dashboard sits between my week to hold important sticky notes.

I'm using CC-Inspired WO2P inserts by My Life All in One Place.

This part of my life was pretty hectic too! I had so many projects to catch up on!! But I managed to get most of it done :) Not too many to carry into the current week. For decorations, I used the same washi tape designs from my Domino.

I'm also using the same CC-Inspired WO2P inserts in my A5 planner for cohesiveness, along with another Paper Addict dashboard [that I customized], and an up&up (Target) magnetic clip.

Filofax 2014: Weeks 3 - 5


Hello again! It feels great to be back :) But because of my little hiatus, I've fallen behind in ALL of my projects! Slowly but surely, I am catching up. Starting with my Filofaxes. They're all up-to-date and ready for me to get back in the game! And today I'll be sharing 3 weeks worth of planner layouts...

As you can see I use both an A5 and Personal Filofax to organize my life. Take a glimpse inside my Original A5 & Personal Domino. I even added some extra inserts to Stay Organized in 2014! In case you missed my last Filofax post, you can find it here.

FF 2014: Week 3 in My A5 Original & Personal Domino

Let me give you a quick rundown of what I use my Personal and A5 Filofax for. Both follow the same color-coding system. My [Personal] Domino holds all of my personal notes, family details, appointments/events, paydays & bills, contacts, as well as notes specific to my A5. For my blog and Project Life planning, online order tracking, and Household stuff [such as chore lists, menu planning, and important financial details], I use my A5. Since my Personal FF is my everyday planner, I duplicate some entries into it because I like knowing what I have going on in that part of my life.

WEEK 3

FF 2014: Week 3 in My Personal Domino

The color-coding system really helped me to stay on top of this busy week in my Personal Domino. Apart from my standard daily entries and other little notes, I had extra details that I needed to keep track of for an upcoming trip. Which happens to be the reason why I don't crowd my pages with decorations and stickers beforehand. I want to be sure that I have enough space for my notes!

But I always add washi tape for inspiration before I start my week :) On top, I used Recollections tape cut into a banner. Colorful Birds on a Wire line the bottom of the pages. A Martha Stewart dewdrop holds a little reminder [that I move from week to week], a pink Typo page marker is used to hide some personal info, and an up&up (Target) magnetic clip holds my pages together. A Paper Addict dashboard sits right between my week.

I'm using CC-Inspired WO2P inserts from My Life All in One Place.

FF 2014: Week 3 in My A5 Original

In my A5 Original, I'm also using CC-Inspired WO2P inserts from My Life All in One Place. To continue the cohesiveness, I added the same washi tape from my Personal Domino. But I did sneak in a cute Hello Kitty sticker ;) When things happen to not go as planned... which happens often, I use a transparent sticky flag to mark changes in scheduling. I have another up&up magnetic clip to hold my pages together, and a Paper Addict dashboard [which I customized] sits between my week.

WEEK 4

FF 2014: Week 4 in My A5 Original & Personal Domino

This week I decided to take a break from blogging to get ready for and enjoy our Road Trip to Portland, OR. Blogging didn't seem important... it was all about vacation & Family. For decorations in my A5 Original, I used a car sticker from Michael's Hello Kitty's line, more transparent sticky flags to mark changes in scheduling, pink & white Valentine washi tape from Target, and pink Hello Kitty tape by Sandylion. In my Personal, I chose pink dotted washi by Recollections to complement the HK washi tape.

WEEK 5

FF 2014: Week 5 in My A5 Original & Personal Domino

The reason for my blog hiatus and all of the unfinished projects. Real Life. Our family was battling a stomach bug :( Nothing planned or scheduled. Just notes. I didn't even decorate the pages...

Goodbye, January...

2014: Life | An Update

It's February already?!

I think it's a good time to share what has been going on the last couple of weeks during that unannounced hiatus from my blog and social media. But before I get to any of that, I wanted to first say mahalo to those who sent sweet messages and mail while I was away. Thankfully it wasn't anything serious.

I have to say, the new year started out wonderfully! Everything was on track the first couple of weeks, so I decided to take a little break from blogging before our vacation in Portland, OR to visit our family. I needed the extra time to get ready for our trip. And an awesome trip it was! We really enjoyed the change of scenery and the quality time with our loved ones. It always hard to leave....

But there is nothing like spending a fun weekend with family in Portland, only to come home and start the week with a 4-year-old and a stomach bug! Thankfully we made it home safe and sound. But I'd be lying if I said this past week wasn't tough. That yucky bug worked it's way through our entire family in a week! Taking care of them and nursing them back to health was my primary mission. As of now, the little one and the hubs is at 100%. Back to their old selves. Me. Almost there. I'm just happy to be back to "life." But I do admit, the extra rest was really nice :)

I haven't really touched any of my books lately. [It was rough, people!] Now I'm just making up for lost time. This week I'll be sharing the rest of January's Filofax layouts, and work on getting caught up with Project Life. Right now, I'm 2 weeks behind. I also have the remaining 365/30 Lists to share.

I'm hoping to be get caught up with all of my projects pretty quickly, because I have lots of fun stuff planned for February! It's one of my favorite months <3 You guys know how much I love pink. and hearts. and Love! This month you'll also see some new goodies and supplies... and even fun holiday projects! February is also my Blogoversary month :) To show my appreciation for a wonderful and successful year of blogging, I'm hosting another giveaway! Details to come.

365/30 Lists: 2014 | Week 2


Last week I shared my newest adventure here on my blog. And I had no idea how popular my 365/30 Lists Journal would be with my readers! I received such wonderful feedback across all of my social accounts, on my blog, and on the 365/30 Lists: Philofaxers! Facebook group! I'm so happy to hear that a lot of you decided to join me on this journey :) It's going to be so much fun!

I customized this project to suit my needs. Deciding not to use my Filofax made sense to me. I honestly don't have the extra space for 30 separate lists. I also want to keep all of my lists together in one book... so I went with a bound journal. But if you have room to do it in your Filofax or planner, go for it!

In case you missed last week's post, you can find it here. View this month's complete list of prompts @365/30 Lists: Philofaxers!. I'll be using the hashtag #30filolists on instagram, if you want to follow my journey.

WEEK 2
January 6 - January 12

365/30 Lists 2014: Days 6 & 7

365/30 Lists 2014: Days 8 - 10
I added some extras to this page with a Kawaii ice cream cone sticker by Stickerdoodles, a Typo page marker, red paper tape [Kid Made Modern from Target], and filmstrip washi tape.

365/30 Lists 2014: Days 11 & 12

Here I drew some zentangles to fill up some blank space, and embellished the page with another Kawaii sticker and an arrow post-it from my stash of Filofax supplies.

That's it for today! I hope you enjoyed my post and leave here inspired to try something new :) For more... tune in next week! Feel free to check out my other Filofax posts.
