Dividers, Filofax, Printable Items

New item: Printable Summery Hawaii Dividers!

It’s been a while since I last updated my blog!!  I got pregnant and a terrible morning sickness started just like my previous pregnancy (><).  I’ve suffered for about 3 months and it’s finally starting to ease off.

I’ve been working on the design for new Hawaii Dividers and I’ve just finally managed to put them up in my shop!  ↓↓↓

Personal Size Hawaii Dividers

Here are some photos of the Hawaii Dividers 🙂  There are really colourful summery dividers!

There are for Personal size Filofax, but I’m also planning to start selling them for Pocket & A5 size.  ***If you like my printable items but don’t have the equipment necessary to print them off, I can create handmade versions and send them to you.  Please contact me via Etsy (cuteorganizing.etsy.com) or email me at sachiko1979(at)hotmail.com for more details 🙂

Filofax

Faulty Finsbury from Staples :(

So I ordered a Pocket Finsbury form Staples last month. It was £21.98 + P&P which I thought was a bargain considering the same Filofax was being sold for £50 on Filofax official website.

This is the one I bought:
http://www.staples.co.uk/pocket-finsbury-organiser-raspberry/cbs/405366.html?price=incvat&cm_mmc=SEM_PLA-_-google-_-serp-pla&mcode=SEM_PLA-google-serp-pla&gclid=CICSzaHRvcsCFQ0SGwodvGEIyA&gclsrc=aw.ds

I was really looking forward to receiving my new Raspberry Finsbury and it arrived a few days later. I excitedly opened the parcel and… saw the brown cardboard box inside instead of the standard Filofax box in which my other Finsburies came. Has anyone got a Filofax in a cardboard box like this as well??

These are the standard Filofax boxes I’m taking about.

Anyway, I opened the box and checked the Filofax inside, and …. found some scratches on its penloop which made me so disappointed 😦 I nearly kept it as I really wanted to start using it, but… decided to return it for a replacement. After waiting for another several days I finally received a replacement. I opened the cardboard box carefully, and this time it looked ok so I waited until the weekend to set it all up with my new dividers and so on. The weekend came and I set it all up and… noticed that there was a gap in the rings!!! 😦 I was soooo disappointed but this time I didn’t contact Staples because 1) they would probably send me another faulty Filofax anyway 2) I didn’t want them to think that I was a super fussy freak!! My husband also said to me that it’s not sucha big deal because I got it for a low price, but I bought my other Finsburies from Ryman for even cheaper prices in the past and they were in pristine condition! I don’t think I’ll ever buy a Filofax from Staples again 😦

So this is the gap I’m talking about.

Inserts can’t fall out of the rings so it’s still usable unless the gap becomes any bigger in the future!!

Well, at least my new Honeycomb dividers are looking good in it!!

The colour has already come off the penloop, though..Hmmmmm….

Oh, by the way, my Japanese blogger friend told me that Iceland has started selling frozen sushi. I normally buy sushi from Waitrose because their sushi is a lot better than the ones from other supermarkets like Tesco, Morrisons, M&S, etc. I’d never seen frozen sushi, so when I saw it at Iceland I kinda got freaked out lol! But anyway I bought it and ate it the next day for lunch. I kept it in the fridge so it was perfectly defrosted and to my very surprise it tasted as nice as the Waitrose sushi! It’s definitely better than the ones from Tesco or M&S!!! And it’s only £3!!! It costs around £5-6 at Waitrose so from now on I’ll go to Iceland for sushi!! I hope they’ll have more range in the future as this is the only kind they’ve got right now.

3x salmon nigiri, 2 shrimp nigiri and 2 makizushi & 3 California rolls

A little pouch of soy sauce was included but it tastes a bit different from the Kikkoman soy sauce which is my favourite, but it didn’t matter because I just used the Kikkoman sauce I’ve got at home. Anyway, If you’ve never tried Iceland’s sushi I do recommend it!

New Chevron Dividers for my Filofax

Hi everyone!! I haven’t been able to update my blog for such a loooong time, but I’m doing a lot better now (and the baby seems to be doing well too!) even though I’m experiencing some minor problems like backache, etc! 
I hadn’t been able to design new items for a while, but I recently managed to design some new dividers for my Filofax. Although they aren’t ready for sale yet, I’m planning to start selling them for Pocket, Personal and A5 size for both handmade & printable PDF versions 🙂 I’m aiming to get them ready in April.

Oh, I couldn’t believe what happened to me yesterday afternoon!! I was doing a quick shopping at a local green grocer’s and I walked out of the shop and a minute later I felt a big shock on my back and I fell down flat on the ground!!  I turned around and there was a guy (probably in his 20s) on his bike- of course the bike isn’t allowed on the pavement!!! He didn’t say a thing but just stared at me, and the shop lady at the green grocer’s and the woman who was walking nearby helped me stand up and see if I was ok.  Luckily I fell down on my right knee first before going flat on the ground on the right side of my body, so my belly didn’t receive a direct shock.

By the time my husband who was shopping at a nearby store appeared, the guy on the bike had already ran off (He didn’t even apologise to me and kept on riding his bike fast on the pavement!!). We went to the hospital just in case to get everything checked and to our relief there was no problem and the baby was doing fine moving actively in my belly.  I’m so glad it didn’t end up anything serious (even though now I have a sore back, hip and knees!) , and I’ll be extra cautious when I’m out!  My husband decided to report the incident to the police, but of course we don’t expect that the guy will be arrested or fined for this. (But everything is recorded on the CCTV camera!!)

My weekend started in a shocking way, but I hope you’re having a lovely one and don’t forget to follow my Facebook Page for the latest updates in my shop!
