1. Describe your love of stationery to us.
I guess the start of my love for stationery began for me back in 1992 when I was introduced to rubber stamps.  I started to take a few classes and began to create my own greeting cards.  To this day I am still collecting rubber stamps!  I just started pen-palling and use a lot of stationery.  I have even found some stationery to use in my Filofax (planner).

2. What do you love best about your favorite Filofax and why?
I love the fact that you can add basically anything into your Filofax.  I love to add Project Life Cards, Invitations and Pictures into my Filofax by using a single hole punch.  Whenever I receive an invitation in the mail I punch holes in it and add it to the week of the party!

3. Tell us about your favorite and most used Filofax accessory (bookmark, gel pen, stamp, etc).
Washi Tape!!!  I use it every week in my planner.

4. Where are some of your favorite places to shop for Filofax accessories, school supplies, and crafts?
Etsy, Cool Pencil Case, Michael's, Joann Fabrics & Crafts, Hobby lobby, Pens & Leather, kikki-K, MochiThings, Amazon.

5. Can you give some tips on those who love decorating their Filofax pages but are on a budget?
I recommend a couple rolls of washi tape, some post it note flags and a few colored are good to go to start decorating your weekly pages.  There are always great sales at your local craft stores.  I also recommend stopping at your local "dollar" store too.

6. When did you start using your Filofax and how did it change the way you prepared for the day/week/month?
I was introduced to Filofax in August of last year.  I look forward so much to the weekend to decorate the upcoming week and jotting down all my daily tasks that need to be done for that week.  While I am at work I have my Filofax open so I can see the things that need to be done for that day/night and when I am home in the evening I usually sit down for about 10 minutes to go over the day and see if I need to add anything to me week.

7. How do you organize all of your stationery and supplies?
Lately I have a love for vintage and I have found some vintage cheese boxes that hold my stickers/post it notes/project life cards all nice and neat in a perfect row!
