Journaling in my Filofax

As you propably know, if you’ve read a few of my posts, i love journaling, and i use my Filofaxes for it. Here are a few picts of my recent journal….

sorry for the rough quality of the pics

journal i filofax journal i filofax (2) journal i filofax (3) journal i filofax (4)

I experimentet Β alot i n the beginning wether to write vertical or horisontaly…. I started out with a personal size Filofax, and because of the bigger rings, writing verticaly solved the problems of bumbing in to the rings all the time.
But since i’ve been in a slimline and yet a compact…and the rings allow me to write horizontaly…i prefer that.

At the front i have a business card holder with little post-its with the main goals and quotes for the current month

I have few dividers:
1. Quotes and generel notes to inspirre me through out the day.
Goals for the month, breakdowns and things to accomplish each week to reach my monthly goal
2. Everyday writing

3. Logging Β daily logging of gratetude, my vegan lifestyle logging,
4. Doodles and art

I have a month on 2 pages for the current month for goalplanning/maintaining purposes
I only carry pages for 1 month at a time… it varies if i have dailypages or not…
But this is my lifecompanion-book, my best friend, my secret journal, my most personal item of all.
I carry this with me everywhere…this is a lifejourney-book, to hold all my thoughts, doodles, to-do’s etc…

I enjoy doodleing in my filofax…i always have some sort of sketchpaper in the back to always be able to draw and doodle when ever i feel like it πŸ™‚ The compact or slimlines are perfect for doodleing…the personal not so much…

Costum made daily sheets, to log food i ate, healthy additions through out the day, exercise, worst and best thing about the day. Plus I have a place to log what i did that day….not only to do’s but also the little things i normally wouldn’t remember and credit myself for….just to track my whereabouts to clearify to myself that i’m not that sloppy and lazy as i think I am. This actually helps me a lot!

That’s it for now

Β IMG_2393 IMG_2392 IMG_2390

O love these stickers! They are just so cute!!!! i love the nostalgia of the little cassettes stickers weee….

IMG_2384Β IMG_2398IMG_2380

I love stiky notes as you can probably tell……think the toast one is so funny….people always comment on the little notes i write them….i just love things like this…for little things….like grocery lists and directions and little love notes and such πŸ™‚

IMG_2381

I think these arrows are just genius! I’ve been lokking everywehere for them, but seems they don’t sell them at stores here….so now i finally got them yay!

Washi tape collection :)

I have a tiny collection of washi tape…even though i haven’t really gotten around to using it all that much…..some of it i bought for swapping porposes……but i’m getting more and more into it myself….so i have a little stash…….some of it i still might swap for sticky notes and stickers….but we’ll see…..so far this is my collection:

Tools for my Filofax

I can’t go on if i am not able to print and cut my own pages for my filofax…..not many Β of the original filofax inserts suits my needs. And I also just looove graphpaper…the very thin quality paper. I enjoy making my own inserts and dividers from time to time…. and these are the tools i use :

IMG_2369

This is my papercutter……it’s huge…because the tiny one i used to have couldn’t take up to A4 size sheets…so this one i Love! And the fact that there’s that marker so you only have to position your wanted paper size once.

next thing i can’t live without:

IMG_2371

IMG_2373

My KW triO adjustable holepunch! I used to have the ones from Filofax, but they didn’t do the job…. they couldn’t punch more than 2 sheets of paper, and the punches even fell out of mine at one point. Maybe i used it too much?
I love this adjustable holepuncher though….it takes all sizes of planner paper from pocket to A5 size…..gotta love that!
One thing that annoys me, is that i often forget to adjust the punches LOL – it should be able to communicate with my brain, but i guess that’s too much to ask πŸ™‚ This punch is really good.
You can buy it here:Β http://www.hummelman.com/details.asp?code=189170&origin=products#.UVxxwqKePgY

The last tool i use regularly is the single holepunch…. I use that for making dividers and pockets for my Filofax….since i don’t want to risk ruining my KWtriO punching in cardboard or plastic πŸ™‚
this takes a little while longer to do..but it saves my KWtriO πŸ™‚
I got this on ebay

Next up will be a peek at my washitape collection
Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

compulsive shopping lol

While i’m waiting for my latest filofax-order…i accidentally ordered af few more from another filo website πŸ˜€ LOL I’m a freak!
I’ll be doing reviews of them when they arrive..

So i’m awaiting 3 orders total…..soooo excited!
Will have to say, i did save money for these…because i’ve wanted a few different filos lately, but now i had enough money to actually buy them…but still the compulsive part of me couldn’t rest untill i completed the order today. I’ve been thinking it over and over again during the last week or so…but it gives me this urge og eager and craving that won’t leave me untill it absolutely certain i’ll get them….so wierd…..i know people in the filofax community calls it filo-crack….and for some reason it seems to hit almost everybody. When ever you get your first filo, and you feel that wierd rush of love towards it…….people, including me, even sleeps with their filofax next to them at night…..is this insane? I feel a bit insane actually……i kinda keep this addiction a secret to everyone close to me….since they wouldn’t understand this secret filo-crazy part of me……They would think it’s a waiste of money…but wierd thing is…i never do! I never regret buying filos, beacuse i get sort of high when ever i look a it…even if it’s been on the shelves for months, i still look at it and feel it, pretty regularly…. wierd stubid filo-crack lol!

Someone who’s blog always inspirres me, isΒ http://thesnarlingpost.blogspot.dk/Β she acutally made me go for my first ever filofax, the compact chameleon….i just love her sense og humor, and her way of keeping it minimalistic….that speaks to me….i like to alawys narrow it down to the essentials with my planners….So go check out her blog….sadly sh’e not that active in blogging, but you can stil take a look at her older post and pictures. Also you can find her on YoutubeΒ http://www.youtube.com/user/theSNARLingpostYT?feature=plcp. I love her videos…they are so inspirering!! I watch them over and over again lol πŸ™‚ ( i promise i’m not a stalker or anything lol )

Also a shout out to the foundation-blog of this filofax-community…..you should difinetly go check that out as wellΒ http://philofaxy.blogspot.dk/Β and you can go check out their facebook groupΒ https://www.facebook.com/groups/filofaxusers/Β This community of filofax-fans is just brilliant….i’ve made great filo-friends in there πŸ™‚

I can’t wait to share with you those lovely pieces i’ll be getting in the mail. (hopefully sooooon)
I’ll be back with more revelation of my crazy split self πŸ™‚
ciao

My stash of paper

So here’s my stash of precut personal and pocket size paper….for my journaling in filos i’m gonna need a lot of paper, and I like to fill my filos up with it….since i almost everytime i get a new one, toss the inserts that come with it. I never use the standart inserts….i don’t like the lined diarypages, or the week on two pages with the small collums for the weekends…because i do a lot of to do lists on every weekday… I love writing on graph paper, and other very thin paper….cause i like to be able to fit aLOT of paper in my filofaxes.

I actually prefer the white paper, 2 days per page, since i almost always write in pencil, i don’t have the issues with the bleedthrough.

IMG_2323

 

All I have to do now, is punch the holes in them, and they are good to go πŸ™‚

IMG_2286

 

That cottoncreme paper with the lines are from at tiny notebook, i took apart and cut to size…it’s like moleskine paper….really great. I’ll have to look for more of that. Also the lines are very narrow…and i will be able to write alot on each side. I Like that!

Bye for now πŸ™‚

Artbox haul

I ordered soooooo much stationary stuff from artbox the other day…and i have to say they ship really quick!! I was surprised to recieve it today already. it’s only been 2 days….COOL!! I’ll difinitly order from them again
I have to confess that I’m a stationary horder! I have all the symptoms: I collect impulsively…i buy stuff just because it’s pretty…not because i need it….but you see, i FEEL like i neeeed it. I keep my hording a secret to everyone i know….I’m an organised horder πŸ˜€ When people ask me, do you use all that, i say, yes ofcourse….i wouldn’t buy it if i didn’t use it…..because I PLAN on using it while buying it. I know exactly what to use every little bits and pieces of it for….i just never get through ALL that stuff that i’ve accumulated…emberrasing, but true…. πŸ˜€

Here’s some picture spam for you fellow stationaryfreaks lol πŸ˜€

My journal collection

This is my journal collection……all the unused ones πŸ™‚

The red wowen one i got from a former penpal i Tyrkey
the pink glittery one i got from paperchase….

I’ve always been journaling….since i was a kid. I used to make my own….out of copypapar and staples πŸ™‚ I drew alot, and made little short stories…I always had a dream to find THAT ONE book that would keep me satisfied….that one secret book to keep all my knowledge in….like i had a lot of that as a child lol….but i wanted like a personal bible….in a really pretty and thick book. I never found it though..but now as an adult, descovering Filofaxes i think i might.

I love pretty notebooks and journals πŸ™‚ as you can propably tell.

I’m all into jornaling in filofaxes at the moment…and i plan on getting quite a few af them just for that purpose πŸ™‚ the pocket size is perfekt for that. The rings wont get in the way…it wont be ensanely heavy, as an A5 or even a personal could be….I never had any pocketsize until i got a chameleon about 6 months ago….but i lost it somewhere… 😦 so sad. But i really liked that binder, so i plan on getting a few of these as well πŸ™‚ As soon as I can afford it πŸ™‚

My obsession

I’m obsessed with stationary and filofaxes….and even other organisers too.
Just yesterday i ordered a ton of things online….tons of sticky notes and cute notepads πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to get it all.. I ordered 2 filofaxes as well. I have a collection of filos from the past few years.
I used to have another blog, but i deleted it, and created this one. I never got really far with that other one…just simply got bored with it. This is new for me…so far i really like the wordpress layout…but i’ll have to get more used to it

These are my filofaxes so far:

Next I’ll get:

IMG_2459

Pocket Luxe in black
Compact Luxe in brown
Pocket Finsbury in orange
Pocket Chameleon in spring green
Compact Finsbury in blue
Compact Osterley in plum
Personal Malden in purple and even teal if they make one this year πŸ™‚ I really hope they do πŸ™‚
Personal Sketch in brown
Personal Finsbury in emerald
Compact Finsbury in pink
a few more pockets i guess….

I’ve dicided to keep my filofaxes as journals….with blank or lined paper, just so i can always justify to collect even more….since you can never have too many journals if you write a lot πŸ™‚

I’m also really into journals and notebooks, Stickynotes, stickers, stamps, washi tape and pens πŸ™‚
This blog will have a lot of pictures and less text i think…..just because i love to look at pictures af filofaxes and stationary. Plus my english doesn’t always allow me too speak my mind freely, since i’m short on words…like littaraly. My vocabulary isn’t as big as i wish it was πŸ™‚

Soon there will be hauls posted on here….. yay!
