Week in my Filofax A5 Black Chameleon

This week, I am using my stunning Filofax A5 Chameleon in Black which I absolutely adore! This is my favourite planner of all the planners that I own. There is something really nice about this planner that I am speechless every time I look at it. This was my first planner ever :)

My decoration for the week is inspired by the Deer family :). I love how cute they look. I absolutely hate watching them being killed by their predators. What do you think? Aren't they too sweet to be killed?

Here are some photos of my decorated pages for the current week.

Week in my Kikki.K Fuchsia Time Planner

This post is in memory of my loving grandfather Mr. P.S.Radhakrishnan

Hello everyone! I am back from holidays. My holiday was not as I wanted it to be. It was very stressful, with my maternal grandfather in ICU the entire month of November while I was visiting India. My husband and I returned to Sydney on the 25th of November and my grandfather passed away on the 28th of November. Fortunately, we got to see him while he was in hospital. My grandfather was a very learned person who had immense amount of knowledge and wisdom. He was simple, kind and had a beautiful heart. He was our friend and our backbone. He has left a huge void in our entire family that can never be filled. I pray that may his beautiful soul rest in peace.

As you could probably guess, I have been very disturbed in the past few weeks spending most of my days and nights in anxiety. I just wanted to cheer myself up a little bit. So I decided to go with an Owl Theme. Here are some photos.

Upcoming Week in my Filofax Original Yellow Personal Size and Kikki.K Large Time Planner

I am so excited about the upcoming week as I am going on holidays with my husband for three weeks. We are visiting family and friends after seven long years. I just cannot wait to see my little six year old niece. The past few weeks have been quite busy and very exciting at the same time. I decided to use my Filofax Original Yellow Personal Size to carry around while the A5 sizes are synched and stay home. Here are a few photos of both my planners.


Birds Inspired- Filofax Original Yellow Personal Size





Initially, I didn't like this deep yellow organiser very much. But I have started loving this!
The Yellow is quite dark for my liking but, I like it now.





      The quote here is inspired by an Airplane. I always think it is one of the best inventions ever!




These cute, colourful, chirpy birds are just an expression of my excitement!
And the little bit of Malay language that you see is because of my love for the language. I would love to speak Malay very fluently one day :) and this is the beginning I guess !




     For a change, I chose to stay away from Pink in these pages.
     So, I went ahead with Blue, Orange  and Yellow.





























Sanrio characters; Little Twin Stars inspired - Kikki-K Large Time Planner










I love these two cute characters from Sanrio.
I think you can never go wrong with Pastels. They always look pretty!

Lotus and Frog inspired upcoming week in my Filofax Apex Personal Green and Filofax A5 Chameleon Black

Lotus is my favourite flower! I just love the way it looks; the gorgeous flower itself, the beautifully shaped leaves and  the buds. I also I admire it's unique nature of floating on water and blossoming in a muddy pond. This unique characteristic (blooming beautifully even in the muddy pond water) is purely the reason why The Lotus flower tops the list of flowers offered to God in the Hindu religion. I have always been amazed at this divine flower that God has created! Lotus is found in many ponds in India and probably that is why it is the national flower of India. Born in a Indian Hindu Brahmin family, I have seen my parents offer this beautiful flower to God while worshipping. Since I was a little girl, I used to admire the beautiful lotus buds that my father used to bring home for festive season worship as offering to God. I still remember the lovely drawings of the Lotus flower that my mother used to draw; she still does I believe :)

So this upcoming week, I am using my Filofax Apex Personal Green and Filofax A5 Chameleon Black; both decorated using the Lotus and Frog theme. I absolutely love the Filofax Chameleon planner. This was my first Filofax. I own quite a few now.  But this Chameleon was, still is and will always remain my favourite! It is a beautifully designed leather Filofax planner. I really fail to understand the reason why it has been discontinued. As for the non-leather Filofax Apex in Green and Pink, I bought this one solely because of the colour, that once again reminds me of the Lotus Flower.

 Here are a few photos































I made all the paper clips that you see in all these pictures. 
My first ever attempt at Felt Crafting. I quite like the way they turned out.




A pond full of beautiful lotus blossoms cannot be complete without frogs. So, I added these cute little frogs :)

Indian Festival Dussehra Inspired Week in my A5 Filofax Original Pink Fluoro

This time of the year, I miss being around family and friends in India. The festive season, the colours, the lights, the festive gatherings, the market stalls, the yummy food and the positive vibes all around is what I miss. So I decided to decorate the upcoming week in a colourful Indian Hindu Festival inspired look - Dussehra (Dus-seh-raa) in my Filofax A5 Original Pink Fluoro. This is my favourite festival out of all the numerous Hindu festivals celebrated in India.

A little bit about Dussehra

The name Dussehra is derived from Sanskrit language 'Dasha-hara' that literally means -
'removal of ten' ; referring to the Hindu God Rama's victory over the ten-headed demon king Raavan of Lanka. This day also marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the Demon Mahishasur. This festival is celebrated for ten long days and on the tenth day an effigy of Raavan is burnt marking his end.

So here are a few photos of my decoration and my illustrations

The text on the above illustration is Hindi Script for " Shiv- Shakti"

I always loved the Indian art of Henna and motifs. The tiny Paisley, bird and leaf illustrations are inspired by Henna and motif art that I love doing all the time.
