Welcome to Amy. Amy blogs over at www.filocuteness.blogspot.com.

I'm so glad to be a part of this wonderful community of people who share my love of all things Filofax related.  I am a former 5th Grade teacher and now a stay-at-home mom of three awesome kids...ages 13, 7, and 4.  I've been married for 16 years to a great guy who puts up with  my Filofax addiction!  I enjoy running, organizing, reading, party planning, and collecting Filofax organizers.  As long as I can remember, I have loved paper, stickers, planners, and writing things down.  It's so nice to have found a place where I can easily exchange ideas with others who share the same interests.
