My {Filofax} Week 9

Paper Lovestory's My Week

I feel like last week went by incredibly fast. I cannot believe it’s already March. February flew by.

Here’s my week:

Week 9 Filofax

And for a quick recap of what happened {in case you aren’t at all interested in reading about my life}:

  • I tried to add a bit more color to this week’s pages to go along with my wonderful stamps I got.
  • I had another presentation to make for work.
  • I actually began somewhat prepping my room for the renovations.
  • A new watermark for pictures.
  • Procrastination can effectively sum up this week.

And for the longer version {for those of you who like to read or are just nosy :)}:

  • Last week, I blogged about the wonderful stamps I got from Etsy. I’d been looking for stamps like these for a while so I was thrilled when I found them. They came from Korea, I believe, so it took a while for them to get here {mainly because our mail man forgot to bring them}. To go along with the stamps, I tried to add some color, but I must say, the color overwhelms me and I think I will tone it back for next week.
  • My work scheduled yet another presentation for me. {I really wish they’d understand, I don’t like public speaking.} After each meeting, they always tell me I did a good job and that I seem more comfortable. Truthfully, I still despise it. I’ve just kind of given up trying to get out of them because my whole department operates on the idea that you will learn to like it eventually.
  • For about 6 months or more now, I’ve been planning to redo my room. Currently it’s painted bubble gum pink and lime green. After almost 10 years, I’m ready for it to go. The hard part is going to be painting though. I really do not want to paint a 16’x21′ room PLUS my bathroom. {and I’m doing stripes on one wall too so that’s even more work}. So in catching up with my to-do list, I cleaned up quite a bit and did some organizing here and there. The big change was with my bathroom though. My bathroom is a bit odd. The first part of my bathroom, the sink area, has no door separating it from my bedroom. Then a door separates the sink area (and my bedroom) from the toilet and shower area. There’s a window in each area, but the door blocks one of them at all times depending on if it’s open or closed. It’s only myself and my cats that use my bathroom and it’s tucked around a corner so the door stays open 100% of the time. I made the decision to just take the door down, and I was blown away by how much light pours into my room now that both windows are accessible. Another great perk is that without the door taking up space, I got to move the cat’s food bowls onto the tile floor which will be a LOT easier to clean up.

Making the new watermark for my photos

  • I’m in the process of slowly figuring out this blogging situation. I picked up a copy of Blog, Inc., which I’ve been seeing a lot of lately. One of my sources of inspiration, Jen from OrganizedLikeJen also mentioned it in her video she recently posted on Youtube. I plan to start that this week. Another change I made was putting together a watermark for my images. Now that it’s made, I’m trying to figure out the best {simplest} way to add the watermark, put images on my blog, and what to do with the ones I’ve already put up both here and on Flickr. I really want everything to look consistent. {I’m a bit OCD.} If anyone has any tips or suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments below.
  • This week was really all about procrastination for me. In some ways it was a blessing, and in other ways it was a curse. Instead of doing what I should have done in order to meet deadlines {blog posts, school work, etc.} I did everything else instead. The good part was that the “everything else” happened to be productive to some extent {cleaning, catching up on reading/YouTube, creative blog things, etc.} so I’m writing this in an incredibly clean room, the bad part is I didn’t do a lot that I should have done. In fact, I’m writing this right now instead of doing my assignment that is due in 10 hours.
  • Lastly, a quick update to my photo challenge challenges… in a my February photo challenge recap, I linked to the March list. When I actually read the link, I saw a fantastic little link to add all the events to your online calendar. Knowing how much I use Google Calendar, I did, and it’s been working out well. I also started adding the daily picture to my daily pages as a to do item just as an added reminder. So far, I’m on track.

Until next week.
