I first heard of Qimmis from Steve's review on Philofaxy and Janet's review on This Bug's Life. I decided to head over to Qimmis.com and take a look. Wow!
The first thing that struck me was the amount of choice offered. Not only can you choose which diary format you want, you can choose which month it starts in, and if you want 3, 6 or 12 months. You can choose Filofax-compatible sizes and hole configurations, US 7-ring configuration, or Swedish 4-ring. And there are several decorated styles to choose from, or plain. You can also choose your language and country holidays.
I bought these inserts from the Qimmis website, Qimmis.com. I don't know if these are available anywhere else. Qimmis is located in Sweden, and all prices are in Swedish Kronor which you can convert to your currency via XE.com or similar conversion site. These inserts took about 10 days to reach me here in the UK.
I noticed their WeekVertical inserts and thought that would be a good Filofax version of my Plannerisms planner weekly layout, vertical days with space below for lists and notes. So I got some in Personal size, English with UK holidays. (Click on any of the photos for a larger view.)
Then I thought I'd like to have some WeekAndNote inserts, for those weeks when I have lots of tasks and not many appointments.
Then I thought I'd get some monthly pages too (which are located under Extra), with US holidays this time so I can know the UK and US holidays. Interestingly, the months do not have lines to create day boxes! It is completely open with just the date numbers and holidays.
I chose all of these inserts to last 12 months, and all in the Vanilla style for maximum writing space on the page. Below is the Year Overview Foldout (which is under Extra) in the Peony style. I realize now it would be easy to see writing over the decorations, and I wish I'd gotten the Peony style in my diary pages. Oh well, next year!
There are also lots of other Extra pages to choose from, and other diary formats too.
