My current planning system took awhile to establish. I have been experimenting with different sizes and styles and I think I have finally found a set-up that works great for me. I use three different planners for multiple reasons. I know you are probably thinking, “Why in the world do you need that many?” The truth is that I could condense it into one, but I personally enjoy using three. Let me break it down for you…

I have always been a big fan of the Polaroid cameras that printed their own photos. Digital cameras and smart phones have started to take the place of that technology. However, it seems recently the quick print and develop technology is making a comeback. A few different brands have been releasing both the classic photo printing camera and the stand alone printers that can be used through bluetooth or WiFi on your smart phone. Since I am a fan of the quirky , photo booth style, vintage prints, I had to put the FujiFilm Instax Printer on my Amazon wish list. My husband was happy to help me out, by purchasing it for Christmas. I could not have been more excited to open that gift!
It has been very easy to learn how to use it. The printer came with its own set of AA batteries and my husband also purchased two packages of ink cartridges for me to use. I followed the directions on the box, which said to download the instax SHARE app onto my iPhone. Within just a few minutes I was able to print my first photo.
Any photo editing should be done before you use the instax SHARE app to print. Also, before opening the app, you need to go connect to the printer’s WiFi. Once you have connected to the WiFi, all you have to do is go to the app and select that photo that you would like to print. There is a very short waiting period while the app searches for the printer and then your photo will start to print. Just like with any photo printers, it takes 5-10 minutes for your photo to develop. When it finishes, you will have a cute little keepsake that you can display or use for scrapbooking purposes.
Overall, I have loved using this to print cute snapshots for my planner and other projects. It has been super quick and easy to use! If you are in the market for a photo printer, then this one is definitely worth checking out.

Hello, all Filofaxers (Hey, it’s a word and you know it)! My name is Kimberly and this is the beginning of what I hope will be a beautiful friendship. If you have somehow stumbled upon this blog, then I am sure you are a fan of planning, crafting, filofaxing, or all of the above. This first post will be an introduction and will hopefully give you a good idea of what I will be posting about in the future. I hope it strikes your fancy!
How it Started.
I have been a planner nerd since I got my first Lisa Frank notebook (with colorful paper!) when I was in middle school. It was then that I started making lists and keeping up with my life…or as much of a life as a middle school kid can have anyway. Since that very first notebook, my planning tastes have changed throughout high school, college, and starting my real world, adult life. Before I even knew the word Filofax or had any thoughts about major life planning, I was already bedazzling my school-issued planners. I mean let’s face it…those things were just plain ugly. I covered them in stickers and used colorful pens to write in my high school, homework assignments.
Through college I used a combination of school planners that were spiral bound and binder-style planners that were purchased at Target or Wal-Mart. Most often they were a plain black or brown and used the standard issue inserts and dividers. Nothing too fancy…except for my stickers of course!
Planning and Adulting.
Then, I hit my mid-twenties. Real life was in full swing. I had my first car payment, I purchased my own home, started dating an amazing guy, and had a very hectic, full-time job. Not to mention, trying to keep up with friends and family through all of that. I desperately needed a better way to plan my time, so that I could fit everything in.
That is when I started browsing Pinterest fervently in search of a planning method that could meet my ever-changing needs. I had no idea I would find a HUGE community of awesome ladies that first introduced me to the term “Filofaxing”. My life as I knew it changed! So, a little over a year ago I purchased my first Filofax. A beautiful, personal size, patent leather original, in Fuscia! It was love at first sight!
So it began! I was on Etsy, Pinterest, and so many blogs, doing research and trying to find the most efficient and cutest (obvs!) way to organize my new planner. Since then I have branched out to other brands and styles, but Filofax still remains on the top of my list. I am now the owner of three Filofaxes and one Kikki-K. Also, dozens of different washi tapes, hundreds of stickers, a fine tip pen in every color imaginable, and sticky notes galore!
So, I guess you have figured out what this blog is going to be about…
I hope to be able to offer my own thoughts and ideas to the planning community. Maybe, I will be the one to introduce this fabulous hobby to a girl that is frantically searching the internet for ways to organize her life.
