A little window to the ever changing life of my daughters and myself. Including, but not limited to, our struggles, my yearning of learning in broad subjects, the journey to finding myself, learning to become worthy of Him, becoming a better mother, and finding where it is I belong.

Filofax: Week 7


I have been a very disorganized person practically ever since I moved out of my mothers house. 
Up until my children were around 8 years of age, I have been, shall we say, 'messy'.

I don't want to be. I've never liked it. Always wanted to change that about me. Alas, I have never had the dicipline to follow thru. I have begun many times to 'clean up my act', only to give up before it becomes a new habit. 

I have kept organizers in the past, even made some myself. However, I've only used them for a couple of months at a time tops. Towards the end of last year I started to look for a new organizer. Then, when on YouTube, I searched 'organizers' and up came lots, and lots of Filofax videos. Before this, I had never heard of Filofaxes, didn't know they existed. There is such a huge community for Filofax lovers out there, I decided to see what the fuss was about. 

I purchased this Vintage Pink Personal Malden from a wonderful lady in the UK. It took almost a month from the first contact with her to getting it on my doorstep. So worth the wait. The funny thing is that two days after paying for this Vintage Pink, I saw a black one on eBay for sale for only $45. I had to buy that one too. It arrived in less than a week. I used it for about 2 weeks before this pink one arrived. Now, I am in the process of buying the A5 in Vintage Pink also. 

With this new found love, I have decided to start a new series here, where (hopefully) every weekend, I will post a picture of how my week went. With this, I hope to be more consistent with publishing more often, and making myself be more organized with my life. Giving me a bigger reason to keep up with my Filofax. 

This week:
I had several things to do on Monday, however, I didn't have enough time to finish them. 
On Tuesday, I got a call from my boss, telling me I got the job I had applied for. So, I got promoted.
Wednesday was the first day of my new resposobilities within this company, and my feet were aching! I was in so much pain I decided to not do anything else that day. This was also the day I received this lovely Filofax in the post. A happy surprise after a long day.
Thursday I felt pretty good in the morning, finished cleaning my room and the bathroom. All before 6AM. I was on a roll! Both my brother and sister came for a visit and played Loteria (a Mexican Bingo).
Friday was the livingroom's turn and well, let's just say TGIwasF!
I was so tired, I decided to wake up really late on the weekends.

Though it was a difficult week for me, I've also have to say, it has been a very productive week. That makes me happy.

I will be posting a video of my Filofax setup in a few days so come back to check it out if you wish.

  1. Hi! I love your video a lot, found it through youtube and subscribed! I wanted to write that it would be interesting to see how you create those inserts for Filofax in photoshop. Maybe you will make a video about it?
    Maybe you could share MADE already inserts for personal size FF? I want to use it for myself only in my binder.
    Thank you very much!

    1. sorry for the late reply. I'm glad you liked my video. I would love to show people how to make their own inserts, however, I don't know how to go about doing that- sorry. I could however sell already made on Etsy or even the downloadable file. I'll post them sometime soon. Thank you for stopping by AND for the great idea!
