My 2014 Monthly Calendar Set Up in my Filofax

When using my Filofax Personal Organiser, I use a monthly calender in conjuction with a weekly calendar.
I find it easy to see an overview of what events I need to keep in mind within that month as well as give me a place where I can plan things months, days, or weeks ahead of time instead of scrambling through my weekly pages. Seeing an overview of the month gives me a way to visualize if it is going to be a hectic month so that I can prepare myself mentally.

These inserts are templates created by Susan Conder. They are available on her blog: It is available only in A5  size. I added in the dates, days, and month myself.

My Review: Morning Glory Pocket Color Pen - Twin Type

I posted this photos recently on my Instagram and have gotten some interest for the pen I used in these photographs. I thought I would share my thoughts on this pen for those of you who are unfamiliar with it.

I purchased these pens from Morning Glory. There are some Morning Glory stores all over Southern California which carries these pens. It is also available on their online store: Morning Glory / Online Store.

The specific pens I am reviewing are the Pocket Color Pen - Twin Type. It has water soluble ink. It can also double as a highlighter. This pen needs to have its cap closed after use or it will dry out quickly. Directions state to listen carefully  for the "Click" sound when you close the cap. One side of the nib is a  fine line (Pen Type: 0.3-0.4mm) and other side nib is a  thick line (Highlighter Type: 3.0mm).

 There are eighteen (18) different colors! Colors are:
01. Red,
02. Pink,
03. Cherry Pink,
04. Lovely Pink,
05. Rose Pink,
06. Peach Pink,
07. Coco Beig…

2014 - Birthday Cards

Just wanted to share with you all a few cards that I've made for some special birthday girls!
This particular card was made using C.C. Designs Stamp in Butterfly Lucy.  The image was then colored in with Copic markers. I used the paper pad from MME Dolled Up 6x6 pad to create this 6x6 card. 

  I've been incorporating some new elements such as embossing and calligraphy into my card making. 

Thanks for stopping by to see my creations!
