My Review Monday: Willow Filofax

 Willow Filofax 

Willow is inspired by the symmetry and lines of willow tree leaves. With its pastel tones and soft feminine simplicity, it complements the Spring catwalk fashion trend for all things pastel and pretty.

Here is a photograph of a willow tree's leaves as well as one of myself sitting underneath a willow tree.

Month in Review - March 2014

The month of March was definitely a busy month of planning. I honestly don't know how I could be able to keep track of things without my paper planner. Just like some of you, I have tried using a digital device for managing my time. It was the lack of customization which drew me away from it. I didn't suit my needs like a paper planner does. With a paper planner, I am able to use a variety of inserts to effectively manage all aspects of my life - my two children, my husband, and myself. Before I was using a paper planner, I had post-it notes all over the place. Having notes on my digital device simply didn't work because I would flipping through apps trying to get the information I needed. It was much more easier to just flip to a tabbed section in my planner. It seemed more difficult trying to organize things in a digital device versus just grabbing a pen in different colors to color code what I needed to.

My Review: Kuretake Zig Wink of Stella Markers

Kuretake Zig Wink of Stella Markers

 These can be purchased individually or in this 12 color set. There is also an option to purchase a 6 color set. Colors not included in this 12 color set are: Red, Dark Green, and Orange.
 Like a romantic wink that will make your heart flutter, Wink of Stella is an excellent pen with glitter dust perfect for all your cards, letters, journals and scrapbooking needs.
 The pen writes in a 0.8 mm point line. Here is my writing sample in my Leuchtturm 1917 Notebook which has 80 gsm weight paper. Some glitter pens, and glitter glues tend to clog up when used. Not as issue with these markers, they write nice and smooth.

These markers add that touch of shimmer to any project. It  has the same type of shimmer which the Kuretake Zig Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen has. If you need something with a little more precision than a brush, then this is a great option.

Pricing: Kuretake Zig Wink of Stella Glitter Marker - 0.8 mm - 12 Color Set = $24.00 Kuretake Zi…
