My Custom Van Der Spek Compact

Ever since I discovered Philofaxy website, it starts my planner journey.  I find myself the love of doing crafting and plan for my life.  As the work schedule occupied most of my time, I find the planner kind of help me to balance my work and life. 

I tried few Filofax planners and none of them "connect" with me.  I ended up sell them all.  Around October, I came across Van Der Spek on Philofaxy website and fall in love the idea of design your own organizer!  Here is my journey of this very unique planner.....

I got my inspiration from following youtube channels

This photo starts the idea of using the planner as my wallet :)
The communication with VDS is great and Petra is so patience with me.  It took us two weeks and 74 emails back and forth to get the following drawing.
