I recently received the Personal Sized Doodle. This is a compact Filofax and retails at £22. It comes in a plastic sleeve with some doodle ideas on the front of it.
Out the packaging, you get a Leather affect Organiser with a pleasing to the eye, blue elastic band to keep it altogether.
The idea of this cover is for you to add your own doodles and drawings.
The cover is a little stiff at first and does not lie flat straight out the box, but with a little use, I am sure this matter will be resolved fairly quickly. The inside feels somewhat like suede and is cream in colour.
Ring size 15mm.
So contents wise,
- Transparent flyleaf
- Colour front sheet to co-ordinate with organiser
- 1-6 coloured index
- To do
- White ruled notepaper
- White quadrille notepaper
- White plain notepaper
- Blue ruled notepaper
- Green ruled notepaper
- Pink ruled notepaper
- Frosted ruler/page marker
Please note, the Doodle does not come with a Diary.
The Doodle also does not come with an attached pen holder like most Filofax, with this one you get a pocket holder with a pen loop attached to that. This gives you scope to put the pen/pencil at the front, back, or even in the middle of your Filofax. And there are some little Spirograph discs, so you can have fun making your own doodles.
I haven't started to use the Doddle yet and to be honest, the thought of drawing on a Filofax just fills me with dread, plus my drawing skills are pretty equal to a 2 year old. But I had a bit of an epiphany, I am going to find a drawing I like, print it out then trace it onto the Doodle, okay it won't be my work, but it will be of something I like...hopefully. Or maybe, I could just cover it in diamante bling or stickers.....get creative, put your mind to work, the ideas are endless!
And now the best bit:
