Wrote a Guest Post About My Dividers For Ryman!

I was given an opportunity to write a guest post for Ryman’s website which is super exciting for me!!  If you don’t live in the UK and don’t know about Ryman, it’s a British stationery retail company 🙂  They sometimes have big discounts on Filofaxes, so I actually bought my very first Filofax (Pocket Aqua Finsbury!) from Ryman and I also bought my Pocket Finsbury (Antique Rose) which I’m currently using from Ryman as well.  In fact, I recently bought a Pocket Cuban for my husband which was on discount at Ryman which means my husband is finally a Filofax user as well!!  If you click here you can see the post!


And a real quick update about the monthly refills for 2014!  They are ready for the Pocket and Personal size, however my brand new Brother laser printer’s got a problem now and its drum has been sent back to Brother for some inspection…! 😦  As soon as the problem is sorted I can put up the refills in my shop for sale, but at the moment I can’t tell you when exactly I can start selling them.  Also, I was originally going to create monthly refills with more than one design, however I haven’t had enough time for designing recently and I don’t think I can design any other designs at the moment.

 Thank you for reading!

Handmade refills

Working on monthly refills for 2014..!

Gosh, I’ve been really busy lately and haven’t been able to update my blog for a long time!

Weekly pages for last week 🙂

Last week, Anita wrote a wonderful post about my dividers on Philofaxy, and I was absolutely thrilled!!  If you haven’t seen her post it’s HERE!

Here is a photo of the refills I’ve been working on.

They are the monthly refills for 2014, and I’ve been so desperate to get them finished for Pocket and Personal size asap!!!  I was originally going to design two versions, a kokeshi doll version and an animal character version, but now I’m not so sure if I can create a kokeshi doll version because I have less time to design recently…!

Just a quick look for January pages!

Recently I finally purchased a laser printer to print out refills more quickly.  My inkjet printer prints well, but it’s just so slow just like all the other inkjet printers! My new laser printer is so fast, but if one thing goes wrong I just don’t know what to do with it and it takes me ages to figure out how to solve it!!  I hope I’ll get used to this machine soon!! 🙂

Oh! By the way, I have to show you some photos I took recently!  I had been looking for a small shelf to keep my washi tapes and other small bits and pieces on my desk.  Then I found this post and thought it looked really nice!

Tape Dispenser Makeover-TUTORIAL

A real vintage crate like hers would cost quite a lot unless you luckily find it at a flea market like she did. So I looked for a “vintage look” soda crate on eBay and here is what I got!


I love it, but I definitely need more washi tapes to fill the shelves LOL!!


Thanks for reading and once I put up the monthly refills for 2014 in my shop I’ll announce it here on this blog! 😉
