My two favourite obsessions … the Filofax organisers and knitting.
I was lucky to find this pocket sized Pak in a charity shop.
Originally, I planned to use it as a wallet however, fellow Filofaxing knitter Nadia suggested I use it as a knitting case.
So now, I store my interchangeable KnitPro needle tips in the card slots and a pad post it notes. On the right is a very pretty floral dashboard made from a birthday card.
I recycled the plastic sleeve protectors that some birthday cards have over them. I used decorative tape from Tiger to make pockets for the cables. I carry 20cm, 40cm, 60cm, 80cm, and 100cm knitting cables
I made another pocket using the cover of a knitting magazine.
I use a clear zipped pocket to store a few stitch markers and a yarn needle.
All zipped up and ready to come along to a Dublin Knit Collective Knitworking session.
I’ve been sucked into another paper universe, the world according to the Traveler Notebook (TN).
I entered dangerous territory when I started looking and liking photos of TNs on Instagram and Pinterest.
So I just could not help myself when I saw an online listing for three ZLYC traveler notebooks for sale.
I’m off watch some unboxing and set up You Tube videos.
Buffy the YarnSlayer has been a part of our family since July.
She has displaced the yarn stash and moved into the basket.
Buffy demonstration of unravelling…
She loves does not like to be upstaged by a ball of yarn for a DKC photo shoot
She even spends Sunday nights updating my Filofax….

I’ve been creatively Filofaxing since I discovered the online Filofax community at the beginning of the year. The Christmas season is a very busy time of year for me, and this year I hope that my personal Domino here will help me plan and organise my way 25.12.15.
I made dividers and tabs using the hues of Christmas…
The planner is divided into six sections:
calendar, ideas, knitmas, projects, recipes, gifting which includes the Christmas card snail mail list and stocking stuffers.
I use the week on one page as my diary insert where I plan to write down reminders, due dates and Christmas socials.
I hope to make use of the project planning section…
Here I have a project pages for handmade gifting.
September is here….
a bit of decorating across the top.
I have a new knitting project, a sweater with short row shaping. There is now a knit knotes section of my main planner to keep me the right track.
How I spend a summer day in July…
A planning morning at my local cafe, mainly to people watch as I managed to get a table by the window.
I am adding my creative touch in between the pages of my Filofax.
Staedler’s watercolour pencils are my favourite drawing / painting tools at moment.
Doodling a few flowers, then a few brushstrokes with water…
This well loved red Domino was started to look a bit on the tatty side.
I read few blog posts from Filofaxers who dyed or painted their planners.
So I rolled up my sleeves and began the makeover.
I took some fine sandpaper and lightly sanded the surface.
I used a water based adhesive to prime the surface.
Then applied a coat of acryluc paint in burnt umber and topped with a coat of black.
I finished it off with two coast of varnish and added a few stickers.
Now, do I move my knitting Filofax to this Domino….
I’m finally getting around to showing off my amazing wreath!
For Canada Day I have a very special wreath on my front door.
Made by a group of my knitterly/crafty friends for my birthday earlier this year. The colours remind me of the Canadian flag.
The creative stitching is lovely. …
Love the detail….
I started my weekend with a new bag….
There is a perfect pocket for my Filofax…
I am sticking with a purple theme for my decorated pages. ..
I made my own washi tape ….
I am inspired to declutter my home environment after reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kando.
Little by little, I am using a few tips and tricks from the Konmari Method to tackle my clutter by focusing on
what to keep and what sparks joy.
I have a vast quantity of momentos and souvenirs stored and stacked in every nook and cranny of my home.
Here, I have a paper envelope for my Filofax, made from a paper bag that I kept as a souvenir from a holiday in Naples…
I made this Filofax dashboard from one of my birthdays cards from my fiftieth…
