I've had an old ledger in my studio space for months and finally decided to make it earn it's keep around here. It used to have a dusty blue canvas cover and gray insides but I painted the canvas a peachy pink and covered the insides with vintage wallpaper that I've been saving. It contains about 100 ledger sheets that I usually keep for art journaling but they're the perfect size for list making.
I'm trying to stay in the habit of listing off large projects and small every day duties so that it's easy to pick something I have the ability to work on depending on how much time I have, resources available, etc. Can I squeeze in the start of a blog post while S is quietly playing trains and Ruby is still napping, or put away the dishes with Ruby in the Moby sling while S is 'reading' to himself?' Most days my list is blindly optimistic at best so when it doesn't get done it gets moved to the next day's list. I usually prioritize them but sometimes they get extra stars or exclamation points next to them so they don't get skipped over at a glance. Being organized doesn't come easily to me but writing my lists in a pretty book helps!
How have you been keeping yourself organized this year? What has/hasn't worked for you?
