My Finsbury Filofax

I’ve had a personal filofax for a while but never really knew about the filofax culture/movement – if you don’t know what I mean go have a look at Philofaxy (my links aren’t working but here is the website: http://philofaxy.blogspot.co.uk/) See what I mean by culture?!

My personal kendal was getting quite small for me so I decided to upgrade to a Finsbury in Raspberry, and oh what a good decision that was!! So here she is..

The colour is pretty accurate in this photo.

Inside front cover with zipped compartment, card slits and wallet type pocket. 2013 5 Language diary.

Image

A-Z cream address tabs

Image

Blank tabs in cream.

Image

Coloured notepad in lilac, blue, yellow, peach and pink.

Image

Address inserts.

Image

Business card holders or photo holders.

Image

Black ruler and A5 notepad.

Image

Here is a close up of the front inside space – there is a place to out your name and contact details and you can see the zip here and the card holders.

Image

2 pen holders which holds a pen from paperchase and a Frixion 0.5 pen.

Image

Closes up very nicely!

Image

Just so you can see the size difference between personal and A5.

So there you go – my new Finsbury!

Let me know if you would like to see how I went onto personalizing it as many people on Philofaxy do. It is probably my favourite part! I also changed the setup to suit my needs.

How time has gone on!

I’m having one of those “I’ve finally sat down” moments. It’s been a while – 2 months to be precise considering my last post was about my little boy being 6 months old and he is now a cheeky 8 month old who is trying to crawl and drooling everywhere with teething!

 

Craft wise it’s been slow but steady progress. I have been working on a doll knitting pattern by Jean Greenhowe which I blogged about here. She is coming along steadily now but I need to speed up as she is a birthday present for my niece who’s birthday is in July. Here she is so far:

And here is her dress:

So that’s where I am with wooly stuff.

 

In other crafty news I have tried my hand at Fimo again and had some fun making lots of keyrings inspired by youtube videos, but here is an example:

 

Image

Quite cute and fun to make..

 

It was also my niece’s birthday and my sister in law’s birthday so I made two different cakes:

One Fairy Castle for for a fairy!

And a jewelry box. Still can’t work out how I made both of these in one afternoon!?!?

 

That’s about it for now but I am about to do some draft posts on Filoxfax and also The Leather Satchel Company where my very special bag was made for me!!

 

Happy Crafting!
