My week #10

My whole theme this week is based around these rainbow reinforcements.  They were so fun and colourful I just had to go rainbow crazy, I feel like I let my inner five year old out to play and she was high on sugar!


My week in my Filofax #10

The quote at the start of the week sums up exactly how I've been feeling, "Life is meant to be colourful".  Having bright, happy colours around me really effects my mood.  Every time I have opened my Filofax to look at this week I have smiled because it is so cheery.

I read a post a few months ago by Little Red Moose on how to make your own washi tape magnets.  I loved the idea and wanted to make some for myself but I couldn't remember where I had put an old promotional magnetic calender so I forgot about it.  During the week I came across the magnet in the back of a kitchen draw so I finally got to have a go at making my own.  I am really pleased with how they turned out and they are super easy to make.  You only need a magnetic sheet, plain paper, glue, scissors and washi tape.  If you fancy having a go yourself here is the link.   

My washi tape magnets

Have you heard that the new Spring Filofaxes will be on sale this Tuesday (the 11th March) on the UK site?  I have been drooling over the Willow one since I saw it, it is green with a pretty pastel leaf print.  I think it would go perfectly with my collection, I have been saying for ages that I need a green or blue filo so I was really happy to see this one.  This is the press release if you haven't seen it yet, does anything take your fancy? 

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

  3. Thanks for the link to the new Filofaxes.
    I absolutely love the Willow too- it is so pretty and reminds me of Orly Keily in it's design.
    I want to have a go at making the magnets- what glue did you use?

    1. You're right, it reminds me too!

      I just used Pritt stick. I peeled off the old calender image (as much as I could get off, it wasn't perfect) and then glued a piece of white paper over it so I had a plain base for the washi to go on top of xxx
