Midori Pocket #5


So we have come to the last video of the Midori Pocket Series. This is the last pocket that I will be teaching how to make.

There will be one last video in the series and that will focus on how I have decorated these pocket inserts and also how you can also use these pockets in other planners and notebooks/ journals.

So, I truly  hope you have enjoyed this series and learnt a thing or two about making pockets.

Have a great day

Midori Pocket #4


How are you all today? I woke up extra early this morning and got straight into editing this video. I wanted it out of the way nice and early so I could get on with some more exciting projects I am going to be working on. Oh and today is Pl day but I think I will do that tomorrow.

So I have made the announcement at the beginning of this video that I decided the last 5 videos of the Midori Pocket Series will focus on Embellishing and talking a bit about how else you could use these pockets other than in a Midori. I am really happy to have made that decision because I think it will help with getting a better understanding into what these pockets are all about.

So that means that after this pocket I have 1 more to teach and than its time to embellish woo hoo!!!

Alright well I must be off now so I will speak to you guys again very soon...

Tips & Tricks - How to do Project Life weekly, EASILY!!!


How are you all? I hope great. I am busy busy today filming a couple of videos.

Recently I have been hearing more often than not that people feel like project life is hard to keep up with. However I couldn't disagree more. I do PL on a weekly basis and personally I think its the best way thats not to say the way another does it is wrong. This is just my personal opinion.

In the video below I share some really simple but effective tips on how you can make PL weekly an absolute breeze.

I won't go into detail by writing since you could just watch it anyway. So I will just say I hope you enjoy the tips and tricks and they help you get on top of your Pl or if you are just starting Pl.

Have a lovely day everyone
