Filofax: Week 38

Hello. I hope you had a lovely weekend! Mine was pretty fabulous :) I received some early anniversary gifts from the Hubby. After all these years, he still surprises me... more to come on that. Today I'll be sharing my most recent completed layout in my pink [personal] Domino, and a sneak peek at what I've been working on.

I have to say that I love using my Filofax to stay organized and on top of every aspect of my life. I am one to write everything down (as you can obviously see), but nothing is set in stone with me. Life isn't perfect, and plans change. My Filo easily adjusts to life. Nothing some correction tape or post-its and sticky flags can't fix.

Filofax: Week 38 | Full Spread

With the help of my color-coding system, I'm able to keep track of the various things I have going on in my life. Each color represents a different "subject." I really love playing around with different fonts and handwriting when adding specific details. I also like to hand-draw my checkboxes.

I don't embellish my pages too much beforehand, since I want to make sure that I have enough room for the written details. But I do have to add washi tape before diving into any week. For this layout I used some fun and cheerful yellow designs. The multi-colored chevron print I picked up for $.97/roll at Walmart, and the diagonal stripe came from an Up&Up set from Target [$3- on clearance]. I even used some Stickerdoodles [owl and lime] and Hello Kitty [sun & cloud] stickers to finish the spread. An Up&Up magnetic clip marks my calendars.

The WO2P inserts I'm using were created by my girl Cathy V. of Paper Addict. You can download it here. I love these pages because they give me more than enough room to cram in all of my notes, but most of all because they start on Sunday, and the weekend "sections" are bigger. Perfect!

Filofax: A Sneak Peek at My Current Pages

I told you earlier that the hubby surprised me with some early anniversary gifts... can't believe he actually bought off my wishlist! After 14 years together... he still totally gets me. Love him! I have a new addition :) Say hello to my florescent pink A5 Original....
