Warning: IMAGE HEAVY POST
I've been wanting a compact Filofax and something that's not in the colour range of purple and pink. Since my other organisers are in Lavander and Raspberry, I decided to go with Aqua.
Since my decision to go to a compact size Filofax, I thought about getting a leather one, but decided against it. This Christmas, I received a leather iPad Mini case with a bluetooth keyboard. Since I take my iPad and my Filofax everywhere with me, my bag started to get heavy. I switched from the Finsbury to the Metropol, but even with the vinyl material on the Metropol, my bag was still heavy. That's when I realised that the problem lies in with the slightly bigger rings that the personal size offers which leads to overstuffing. It made my decision to switch to a compact Saffiano easier.
When the Filofax Saffiano came in the mail, I was a bit disappointed when I opened the box. Filofax no longer packaged their organisers in pretty packaging. Instead, it's covered in hard plastic. I remember when we used to get the organisers in the box.
Cute paperclips have been popping up on Etsy and people have been posting their cute clip purchases on Instagram. I wanted one of those cute paperclips, but they're expensive. It's $6 not including tax or shipping for two paperclips. Since I have an abundance of paperclips, I decided why not make one. All you'll need for this easy project are large sized paperclips and 3D stickers.
I bought these stickers at the Dollar Store a couple of years ago to use to decorate my Filofax pages. They're 3D stickers so it made it hard to write in the pages. I had no clue what to use them for after I decided that I won't be sticking them onto my diary pages. I don't scrapbook anymore, so off to the box they went ... until yesterday.
First, sorry for the blurry photo. I took the snapshot of the picture so fast with my iPhone that it didn't properly focused.
I love light weeks, but that's not the case with this week's schedule. It looks like I don't have much planned, but the truth is, editing the manuscript takes time as well as going over all of my photos. I've also adopted a new year's resolution to drink more water and the only way that I'm going to remind myself of that is to stamp it on each day on my schedule. I'm hoping to see where it goes from there.
