A Little Face Lift...........

All I can say is one HUGE thank you, totally blown away by all your support with the kits. The Main Kit sold out in a flash - I did actually say that it was one of my most favourite kits I have ever put together. I also want to thank you for your positive comments about the new website, not as flashy but far easier to use.

So, I am on a major organisation kick. Totally trying to get systems in place and declutter, (as I am a big clutter bug). Before children, I used this wonderful little Dodo household file to organise all my household bits - I decided it was time to pull it out again. Well, once pulled out, I realised how ugly it is and in some dire need of a makeover. So I pulled out the Amy Tangerine paper from the Main kit and got creating. I must apologise about the quality of the photos - it was a late night, last minute thing.

It is a fab little book, full of note paper and lots of different tabs for organising.

But very ugly.....

I decided to cover it with the fabric paper. It has a sticky back so was a breeze to do.

I then covered the inside with the star paper. Using my Smash deco tape in the middle as it was far too tricky to try to cut round the binder bit. I then used the grey man paper to cover the pockets, perfect for slipping in little to do notes.

I am now very happy to have it on my kitchen counter, thrilled with how it turned out. Next on my list is to recover my Dodo Christmas planner - again, a wonderful little file but also very ugly!!


  1. Wonderful recovery! Looks like a great book, would love to know how it helps! Need some details on your process now...

  2. Wow! What a great transformation! Makes me want one of those Dodo books! lol
