filofax cover

Anyone who knows me, knows I love my stationary and have always been a bit of a filofax girl!

A few years ago when Timber was a naughty puppy, he got hold of my home filofax and ripped off the band that went around it and left a few teeth marks. I always meant to replace it at some point, but they are not cheap, even second hand and so never got round to it.




On Sunday we had a quiet, cozy, snuggle up on the sofa kinda day and I managed to get a little sewing done and made a new slip on cover for it :)



I made a double sided strip and folded the 2 ends over to make pockets for the filofax cover to slip into.


I am loving it, it feels like a brand new filofax!!

recipe exchange

My passion is not for cooking, but I have always wanted to be a good wife and mother and make sure my family eat healthily ... sometime I have succeed and sometimes not so! ;)

I feel like I am on a journey and taking steps towards becoming more this-free and that-free, but I find it hard as I would almost rather be doing anything but cooking ... even cleaning!

So I have just created a Facebook group, which I would love you to join if you are interested in what you eat, where we can share recipes and tips and ideas ... It is not just one thing, like 'plant based', 'dairy free' or 'paleo' but as long as its not processed and easy to make, its welcome!!

Please join me and share what you are eating!!

Have you taken any photos of your home??
Our home is in a bit of disarray due to digger work and an external boiler being fitted, so my 'my home' photo is not what I wanted it to be ... it is only a glimpse of our cute little home ... 


... one of our window boxes!!

I would love to see any that you have taken, so please link up in the comments below if you have blogged it or use the hashtag on instagram #whereIlivephotochallenge and tag me @mariainthewood :)

Next months photo is SIGN and to be shared on 24th September.

office organiser

Since getting rid of my caravan, I have a lot of folder, papers and office-type-things that now don't have a home. So I have made an organiser box for my essential oil business stuff :)

So with a cardboard box, some pretty paper and parcel tape I made up a box with slanting edges ....

I decided to add a divider in too but with some different paper

It is really tough and I know will be full very soon! haha :)

I think I will make some more, for home office stuff and other projects I have :)
