Dear Diary…

I know I’m running a bit behind on this, but I still don’t have a 2011 diary (thats agenda/planner for americans-NOT a book for me to pour my heart into). I’ve had filofaxes, kate spade agendas and moleskines in years gone by, and they were all fine, but every year I have a renewed hope that somehow the next one I get will be even more exciting and have me more organized than before. Of course, no blame should be placed on myself, right…? I don’t know how I missed out on this brand before, but Delfonics a Japanese stationery company, has a brilliant selection of quirky agendas…The covers take on all sorts of different looks, messages and languages but the insides stay relatively consistent with very clear layouts and fab small touches like perforated corners so you can keep track of where you are! I’m torn between the neon covers and the antique french ‘ book of meaning’. Worlds apart, I know! Better get on the case though as I can only find a retailer in Australia! I guess my bid for organization should have started a bit earlier, eh?

All Defonics agendas above available from NoteMaker

    Oooh, I love planners! These definitely look like they’ll win the street cred prize when you pull them out in the weekly meeting! :-)

    I’m a Filofax kind of gal, myself. I just ordered a new cherry-red one in A5, as my trusty old “personal” size Filofax has bitten the dust after 12 years. I’m keeping the 3-page, foldout London map insert, for a memento.

    Planners are definitely my thing. I have been pretty devoted to the Kate Spade “diaries” in recent years, too, but starting last year I found a new love. The company is Graphic Image, and their day planners come in bright leathers, have beautiful paper, and even include maps and other information which leaves me feeling especially cosmopolitan. Granted, you live overseas, so you may have no such need. I’m loving the pictures you included. How come everything looks so much cooler from other countries?

    Love the first few photos of the bright diagonals on canvas! They’ll make my 2011 look exciting and organized. I have to check them out! Thanks for sharing ;)

    ‘S funny — I’m experimenting with using an electronic calendar (the Cozi browser plug-in, compatible with my wife’s smartphone for remote updates etc), and while it’s a tremendously handy resource I find I miss the tactile quality of scribbling in a notebook or on the date-squares of a cheap insurance-company calendar. A daybook like that, though, might make a good middle ground — beautiful enough to make us want to use it…
