To-Do Lists- Happy Froggies

Todays list is brought to you by some of the happiest Frogs around- I did another list post with other Frog stickers that you can see here– but these are new guys:

Sticko does it again! I chose some paper and washi:

This washi is so pretty- green with translucent green ferns and leaves on it when you roll it out onto paper:

A few flowers and these guys have a new home!

Happy List-Making.

Fave Things- Corner Punch (Becky Higgins)

The other day in Michaels I came across this little beauty:

IMG_9456

It’s a corner punch for Project Life users- which I’m not. But it got me thinking about the looked of round-cornered cards or paper that I like to use for lists in my Filo… it just makes them look more “finished” somehow.

I have some of the stickers for the “Snap” collection but the colors don’t really go with any other paper I have. So I found some of their cards and thought I could make them look more like Project life cards using the punch!

The cards are so cute!

Here is before the Corner punch:

And here is after!

Nice and “finished.” I love it!

Can’t wait to use this on more of my homemade lists and cards. 🙂

Quote of the Week: Mighty To Save

It’s not often these days that someone offers to comfort and care for us… just because. That’s the great thing about todays quote/verse.

“For the Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

Love the “rejoice over you with singing” part… that will be so cool. 🙂

Travel & Filofax- Orla Kieley Orange Zip Pouch

I know most of you have probably already seen and heard about this new favorite travel case, but I managed to find one and am going to give you a little tour of what I keep inside!

Here she is:

A top view:

I love the light blue zip-pulls; they contrast so nicely with the orange color. Here it is open:

IMG_9460

First, on the left side I’m keeping a small pad of paper, some washi tape on a piece of cut-down plastic and some fun sticky flags.

IMG_9461

It’s a bit tricky to get things in this side, as the zip prevents anything going in that is the width of the case, it has to be a little smaller.

IMG_9462

Next is the middle zip section. I like the clear mesh so you can put things on both sides and get double the storage:

IMG_9463

The other side:

IMG_9464

And finally, the right side. This is really the only thing I don’t love about this case- there are pre-measured pockets and I can’t for the life of me figure out what to fit in them!

IMG_9466

They’re too deep for most things (they get lost and I forget there is something even in there) or it’s not wide enough to fit the things I would like. Sigh. I’m not sure it’s going to work for me permanently, simply because I feel like half the space is wasted! If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please comment. 🙂

Thanks for joining me! Happy Organizing.

Online- Miss Tiina Mini Calendars

I’m always torn about using monthly calendars in my Filofax-
I would rather look at my weekly overview than monthly.

I can fit more into my weekly pages,
I don’t like the month being in a vertical view,
and there really isn’t enough room in the Personal size to fit very much information at all.

So there you have it. But sometimes I need to see a date in advance and it’s nice to get a sense of how much of the month has gone by- so I found these little guys, by MissTiina, and shrunk them down to fit as stick-ins at the front of my week.

IMG_9319

How fun are they?! I love the bunting on each one…
I’m also going to add a sticker to the blank spots… 🙂

IMG_9320

They look great next to the rest of my week!

Rainbow- Traveling Rainbow

When I travel I take supplies of my goodies with me (you can check out details here and here) but I never realized how much the Rainbow has taken over even that! I’m a sucker for things that come in a “rainbow” set- sometimes I even find I don’t love the product that much, I just “had to have it” because of the whole set! Sheesh…

The washi tape is NOT like that. I still can’t get enough and find that I can think more clearly and find what I want more quickly when things are organized by color-

IMG_5221

All ready to be used! And all these sticky tabs/notes are so fun… this was just taken on the go when I was on a trip- honest, I didn’t plan it!

IMG_5230

So there you have it. Traveling Rainbow. 🙂

Happy Organizing.
