Some people keep asking:"What?You are collecting Filofaxes?For what??"..
My answer:"Because they are a perfect planning-tool for me.And they are beautiful".
My Mom collected vintage coffeepots and nobody asked her"why"...a friend of my Mom is collecting Teddybears,her husband munition from the 2.world war - so what ;o) ?
I am a single Mom of two little boys,and I am my own boss,as a Physiotherapist.There`s no chance collecting shoes ;o))
Before I started using Filofaxes for work,I tried different calendars in A5 size - but at the end it was pure chaos...I had to lay the recepies of my Patients between the calendar sheets - guess I don`t have to mention,what happend almost every day*Lol*
I used kind of a personal Filofax(another,cheaper brand)for a year,but it had just the week at a page insert,so I used it just for my personal appointments.
When I started working again,when my little boy was 1 year old,I absolutely wanted something that really fits my needs - and I was soooo lucky,when I achieved my first Filofax,the chocolate A5 Finchley.
When my back/shoulder started to get uncomfortable with the weight of that binder,I started longing for a smaller one.I already wrote about it...BUT that`s where the flame of passion started to burn :o))
I wanted to try,to feel,to move...also different sizes...
On that way I found the Philofaxy blog,countless youtube videos - and I started having fun in my evenings,that I spend alone :o)) my own blog followed,and it is so much fun making photos and videos,writing a bit,making deviders...and watching Ebay*hehe*
Maybe one day I will start collecting shoes...when my boys are a little older and I hopefully don`t have to spent the evenings alone and go out dancing instead ;o)
