My New Orange Filofax

I love orange. My purse is orange, my jacket is orange and my newest Filofax is orange. Bright orange. Really bright. As in Neon. I LOVE it! As my coworker said the first day I brought it to school, I'll never have a problem finding that thing. ;) It's no secret that I hate the cold and darkness of winter. I think that's why I'm making this one my everyday binder for now. It brings some warmth into my life!

I thought I'd share how I set it up. I had so much fun making the dividers for this one. If you are a scrapbooker, then you probably hoard supplies like I do. Well, I have had these Sassafrass Lass papers for a while and decided they would be perfect for my new Orange Original. So, I used the dividers that came with it, traced them onto the papers and made my own. I put my label maker and laminator to use, too. :)

Here's how I organized them in my binder. I made sections for my monthly calendar and my weekly calendars. Then, I made sections for notes related to school, a place to plan my menu, a section for long term home projects and a general to do section.
 So far I really love my new Filofax. I've been trying to fit two pens into the front section and the strap isn't long enough to close comfortably. But, other than that, I feel like I do have plenty of room in it.

Here is my week for this week. I really needed some flowers this week! The Dear Lizzy line was perfect and makes me think of spring every time I open it.
