Filofax Goodies- My Mini Haul!

Ever since I've gotten my Filofax Finsbury I've been a bit consumed with anything and everything it takes to make my Filofax just as gorgeous as those I see in all the Filofax videos on YouTube. I've raided office supply stores, Wal-Mart dollar bins, and desk drawers for tabs, sticky notes, beautiful papers, paper clips, flags and the list goes on and on!

I'm also a little guilty of combing the internet for some special things I can't find here at home. A lot of what I've gotten arrived in the mail last Friday. Wanna peek at what I got? Well, if you insist...




Leuchtturm 1917 Pen Loop




The first thing I needed to find a fix for was that small leather pen loop. To save my life I could not find a pen that would fit in that tiny thing! I watched a few YouTube videos and saw that some people bought the Leuchtturm1917 pen loop to solve this problem. It is completely self adhesive on one side and it's supposed to stick to the back of your planner, journal, notebook, etc. to provide you with an extra pen loop. As suggested by other bloggers/you tubers,  I stuck this to my transparent fly leaf so I wouldn't damage my Filofax. A funny thing happened though, a day after I ordered this pen loop, I happened upon a video that teaches you how to stretch your leather pen loop to fit whatever pen you have. Kent of Oz made this video and you can find it here. Now that my leather pen loop has stretched out to accommodate my Vera Bradley Pen in Dogwood, the Leuchtturm provides me with an extra pen loop!
 
 
 
 
 
 
These are some masking stickers I got from Amazon which you can get here. I got the "basic" set and they come in all kinds of cute designs! There are also different sets by this brand so you can find the one that goes with your color scheme, if you should have one. I don't have a specific color scheme in my Filofax other than fun colors. Teals, purples, yellows, greens....just a mix. I like to open my Filofax and be visually stimulated!



 
I was getting low on my Stickopotamus stars I use for color coding so I bought another package. I also picked up a pack of the small flowers for decoration. Both of these are at Walmart for $1.00 per package. If you wanted some of these, you might want to try there first.
 
 
I didn't go into Walmart for Hello Kitty stickers, nor do I particularly like Hello Kitty a whole lot, but look at these stickers!! Aren't they just the cutest things?! I got a basic pink set, but also lucked up on the Hello Kitty dressed up in different animal costumes PLUS these SUPER DUPER cute Hello Kitty Halloween stickers! The Halloween stickers just make me smile. :) Ms. Kitty is definitely going to be on my October month calendar. LOVE IT!
 
So there ya have it! My small little mini haul! Have you gotten any fun goodies lately? Please feel free to tell me about them in the comments below!
 
OH.....and one more thing....I have a little big surprise coming in the mail tomorrow! Can't wait to share it with you all!
