Mulberry Fund - Update

First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me and helped me and given me kind words, there are so many of you out there. One person in particular has given me lots of support and just been overly lovely as she always is.

She is like a Sister to me, a Filofax sister. Wouldn't you know, TODAY IS HER BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

THANK YOU TRACY!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is not a post to beg, or to ask for money, before anyone says anything!

I think I have reached the target, I am just waiting for a few things to clear from my bank account, and transfer the rest to my Savings account (now known as the Mulberry Savings Account) It was originally set up to save up for my Alexa!

Over the past few days I have been using different ways to help raise money, no I have not been begging.

I have created some Stationery Supplies bags, which I am selling for £3 each then postage to where ever you are. I still have some left for sale and any money from them will help me with my trip to the Philofaxy Meet up as they are something I am selling, I created 25 originally, I am not sure how many I have left, just email me at imysworld20@gmail.com if you are interested in one!

Please only email on IMYSWORLD20@GMAIL.COM as hotmail is down and I am unable to receive mail! Sorry xxx

Each one comes with either a Bic multi pen in 2 colours or 2 nice fine biro's, stickers, selection of post its, paperclips, etc... all sorts!

So if you do want one just email me!!!!! filofaximy@live.com

Another way I raised some money was I auctioned off two Filofaxes, a Pocket Cross Pink Filofax and a Plum Osterley in Personal size. The Cross went for a very low price but the Personal Osterley went for quite a bit in the end, I had a sort of Auction, they both started at 10p and then people could bid from there on.

Before you say anything, I was given a second Osterley by a friend, brand new in box, to help towards my fund! Here is a picture of them both next to each other to prove it!

Because of my last few days of fund raising ideas I now have enough to buy one, I am no longer getting the pink due to the lock but I am thinking of the Oak in either the plain or the Osterleyesk print?

BUT my next issue, I would love to order it right now online, but I know I should wait, so I can photograph the experience and it would be oh so much more fun with my Filofax friends!!! Gosh your all going to be there, it will be so exciting!!!

THE MULBERRY FUND IS OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was so exciting!!! Thank you everyone so much for helping!!!!

I will be removing the Paypal button etc by Monday, as I do not have time to do it now (have to go back to work, sorry)

THANK YOU SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you to everyone who always supports me and all who helped you are always all going to be in my heart!!!! THANK YOU!!!

  7. Dear Imy.
    I was one of the people who wrote a comment at the start of your collection, conveying my distaste at the approach. i took critisism from several people after my comment and was called a bully, a harrasser, and hiding behind a non-descriptive screen name. I am not a bully. I do not use my real name, something I choose for internet safety reasons.

    Today I would like to ask if it feels a lot better to know you 'worked' for some of the money? The little bags of goodies are great, of course your profit is smaller but you were actively 'working' towards your goal.
    When i was about 13 I really wanted a pair of Reebok trainers. They were £30. I was told I had good trainers by my parents and that was it. After asking and asking my Dad finally came home and said I have got you the trainers you want.... he had in fact got me a paper round which at the time paid £15 a week. I was mad, but I understood well that after 2 weeks I could get my Reebok trainers. I did.... and I treasured them so much more because I had earned them, and I knew how much work I had to do in order to get them. (I kept the paper round for three years).

    Best of luck with your planner. i look forward to photos.
