I realize it's been awhile since I last posted... things have been crazy with TWO teens in band and sports AND extra meetings, etc. for the oldest who will be soon traveling with the Iowa Ambassadors of Music to Europe in a bit over a month! EEEEEEK!!! Time flies and there's ever so much to do before he leaves!!
And.... needless to say... my Filofax has DEFINITELY been used, used and reused!!
AND.... as you might guess... IF you're a Filofax junkie like me... I again, have changed the planners I'm using. *sigh* Do you think this EVER ends??? I doubt it. Of course, the Filofax makers HOPE it never ends! Which is, obviously, why they come out with new designs EVERY year. Yeah... who are we kidding? We WILL want to see new and we WILL find at least ONE we HAVE TO HAVE!!!
I admit though...with the latest release, I'm not totally hooked on all the patent designs. The colors are awesome, but I'm really a leather girl. So we will see how this all plays out. I'm DEFINITELY NOT going to say... "NEVER" with this addiction. LOL See... some things I AM learning. LOL
So, you ready? Ready to see WHICH planner I am currently using.
Of course you can't tell from the photo, but... it's a pocket size. The Blue Pocket Finsbury and guess what??? Uh huh... I LOVE it! LOL Say hello to Belle... (bluebell of course... hee hee).
I had been using my Raspberry Pocket Chameleon for the last few weeks so when Belle arrived today, I HAD to switch her out. Interestingly enough though, when I was moving things to Belle, I found that the Chameleon's rings were MUCH smaller than the Finsbury. Is this normal? Do any of you have both to compare? I wonder if this happens in other planners which are of a different "species"?
Now... we will continue with the "madness" of it all. Here you will laugh or completely relate.
Today... I ummm... well... how can I put this "positively"?!
(Said quickly) in hopes that you don't think I'm crazy... (pffft... like it would change anything about me. LOL)... Today... I bought....
*clearing throat* Huh? What? You heard me, right??? YEAH... SO WHAT??? I bought TWO PERSONAL SIZE FILOFAX!!!!
Again... we learn from it all and, admittedly, I learned that I really REALLY loved the leather of my Malden. Sooo... I bought a new one. Because I DID sell my first. Ok so... get over it, alright?? I replaced it with the same! ;-)
THEN... I sold my Fluro Pink Personal Original and.... wouldn't you know... the ONE color I had been wanting FOREVER... suddenly appeared for sale! Yep.. the YELLOW Original. Oy vey!!!! I HAD to I tell you... just HAD to have it!!! And look... don't judge me... my awesome son bought me a fabulous yellow MK purse for mother's day so I NEEDED this planner!!! Yeah... that's right... sometimes I DO color coordinate! What of it??!! ;-)
But seriously, you who have LOADS of Filofax.. you get it, right? You KNOW how this can just be well... trial and error and well... total insanity!!!!
So I promise not to be gone so long again and when I return I'll share a few of my pages in the pocket Filofax so you can see how I work with the smaller pages.
Have a great day and remember... "Variety is the spice of life!". :-)
