In February 2014, I bought for myself my first official planner – a FiloFax Saffiano personal size in raspberry. Not that I don’t plan out my days and weeks before getting it, but I used to use a table calendar and a notepad to list my to-dos and that was about it. Subsequently, my daily life seems more organised and I documented the daily happenings into my little but handy planner too.
It is always fun and therapeutic to decorate the pages in my planners, yet it could get overwhelming when it comes to selecting the ‘suitable’ stuff to decorate them. I don’t haul a lot of stationery although secretly I wish to have this and that and many many more others when I saw what other fellow planners shared on their social media account. LOL. Talk about enablers! But having said that, I did feel more time was spent than it should be while I tried to pick the right stickers or matching washi tapes as I went through my stash. After which we’d comment that time is not enough… hmmm… sounds familiar? :p Anyhow, that is when a kit comes in handy and timely. I got to use what is in the kit and then perhaps add a few extras from my own stash. This sure saves quite a significant amount of time!
And so, when I was invited by Christy from The Planner Society to be her July guest and got to play with her planner kit, I gave her a BIG YES right away! Come on, I must be out of my mind if I were to refuse this awesome invitation. Her planner kit is one of a kind with plenty of exclusive items such the pattern papers she designed, stickers, memo pads, die cut tags, journal cards and many more. Psst.. if you are a planner lover who loves to decorate your pages, you have to take a serious look at what she got to offer. And don’t say I didn’t warn you, her subscription is filled up till the month of September (if I’m not wrong). Quickly snag a kit for yourself while you can, because her kit just keeps getting better each month!
Recently I was gifted a FiloFax The Original Monochrome by a sweet sweet friend and it was the prefect timing to shift into this pretty planner with the vibrant colors of the July planner kit. And so expected, I had so much fun using the kit!
I’ll let the photos and process video to do the talking and you see for yourself just how versatile the kit is and the many ways to decorate up the pages. No rules, no right or wrong, but to go with the flow and where your heart takes you to. Have fun and add colors to your life!
PS – pardon me for the flickering of the lighting of my process video. Mr Sun was playing hide and seek with me during the filming. ><” Nevertheless, I hope you’ll enjoy watching it!
Thank you for joining me here and I hope you enjoyed what I have shared with you. Till then, keep creating!
Much LOVE, Rach
For years, I decided not to have any New Year Resolutions because I couldn’t seem to keep up with the list and make things work. But for once (THIS YEAR), I want to give it a shot and make it happen no matter what. Furthermore, I chose to declare my resolutions publicly to have that extra push and commitment.
With this short list of 5 New Year Resolutions, I shall embark on a fresh journey with plenty of planning, journaling, doodling, drawing, and painting in my Hobonichi Techo, a few ring planners and my traveler’s notebooks!
I was honored to be invited by Amelia as one of her creative guests on her BLOG. When I saw the interview questions, it totally got me thinking the many Whys and Whats that had got me this far in my crafting journey.
Looking back at the path that I had took and getting to where I am now, I’m very thankful and at the same time amazed by what I had achieved this far. No, of course I’m not a celebrity or whatsoever, but knowing that what I do, love and shared had inspired someone in one way or another – damn it sure feels awesome and I’m not gonna be shy to admit it. LOL
Many thanks to every single one of you who have crossed my path at some point of my life and those of you who are walking with me side by side, shoulder to shoulder, you all have shaped me to who I am today and I will not ask for anything more. I’m blessed!
Now, head on over HERE to read what I have shared on my creative journey and perhaps getting to know me a little better. 😉
