In December I applied and got a new job as a Sales Rep covering the UK for an Italian Fastener Company. As a result, my priorities changed and I needed to become super organised!
I knew my little pocket Metropol would suffer so I decided to upgrade to a personal Kendal. It’s oiled leather that feels quite “suede” like to touch. I’m lost without it!
It wasn’t enough. I longed to put my own customised stamp on it… And then found a blog somewhere (ill post the link once I find it) where someone had used stamps to personalise their tabs. AMAZING! I shot to my local garden centre that has a craft section within a couple of days and then after a theme had been decided (aUnion Jack theme, actually inspired by Filofax catalogue: the Malden “mod” theme and the Jack Vintage theme):
I chose a red, blue and antique stamp ink, as well as traditional postcard/tags from portobello road and idea-ology. I also used decorative tape (old dates and calendars – as well as the Union Jack!). Please see below for a very small snapshot of the items used.
The result was quite pleasing, travel related, patriotic, sort of an old and bohemian feel to it.
I remember I mentioned I wanted to do something with my ruler… Well, I did, this is the result:
I think I still want a Daniel Jones Inspiration ruler, perhaps I will get a clear ruler, decorate it with an Aussie flag and pop him on it ;). Ill put it in my personal section!
How have you styled yours?
