Welcome to the Family - Purple Finchley

My long awaited Filofax from the UK finally arrived yesterday. It was stuck in US customs for over 21 days! I wish they hadn't kept it so long. It was getting nervous that it would never come. FYI: For those who want to order internationally, that it has to go through customs, and that customs could hold it up to a month! Better late than never!

Stationery Haul #2

I forgot whose blog or what site I saw this from but they posted a link to this cute store from Etsy - called Charmstore. They sell cute Japanese & Korean Stationery/ Craft items. I bought some stuff right away. I'm in the US and it was shipped from Hong Kong so it felt like it took forever to get to me. Anyways, here are the six (6) items I bought:

I visited the local Morning Glory store near my work again and picked up a few items.

I got 4 MACH 3 pens in Green, Purple, Pink, and Orange with a .38 fine point tip. A Pilot Hi-Tec C pen in a light blue color 0.3 point tip. A Nano 3 Multi-Gel Pen in Black, Blue, & Red ink with a 0.3 point tip.

How I Organize My Stickers - Pt.2 & Mini Staples Haul

Here's is my continued post on how I store my stickers in response to a blog post by IMYSWORLD.

Here's some stuff I got at staples today. 

Stuff for sticker storage and a Day-Timer Mom Planner A5 size.  I couldn't resist that Teal color! Plus, I liked the inserts. 
 Here is Imy's problem, if I put the stickers inside the clear binder sheet, they start to bend because they're too heavy.
Here's my Solution #1: Binder Pockets with velcro closure. It's strong enough to hold 20 sheets of paper/stickers.
Solution #2 - 13 pocket check file  Fits those sticker sheets perfectly.This is smaller than my other expanding files. It's great if you don't have that many stickers and like to carry stickers with you in your purse, etc.

 Solution #3 - Cut out some heavy cardstock in A5 (5/12 x 8 1/2)  I used 110 lb. weight.

 Here I've added the pocket binders in the back for my other stickers & Hello Kitty Stickers because I have so many of those. I used Post-It Fili…

Stationary haul #1 & Highlighters

I found a Morning Glory store by my work and found more goodies! 

 I got some hello kitty, cute animals, and these small little Korean stickers. 
And a personal sized refill WO2P in pink. 
 Here's some schedule stickers
 Polka dot washi/fabric tape in blue & purple. 
 Pocket sized calendar refills Purple of course! 
 A lavender 4+1 Multi-pen by ibis (Colors: Black/ Red/ Blue/ Green ballpoint + a Mechanical Pencil )

Pilot - Frixon Erasable Highlighters 
 Look how streaky and how it smears the ink!!!! Yuck! 

 On another day, I visited my local Office Max in search of some highlighters.

I found these Sharpie Gel Highlighters. There's are surprisingly very smooth. It's hard to describe. It's as soft as a glue stick, but when you run it it's so smooth. When you need more, you twist the bottom. It's claims not to smear your ink. The color however doesn't stan…
