Keeping up with life, Organizing my to-do list, and Dolly Parton’s words of wisdom

Keeping up with life, Organizing my to-do list, and Dolly Parton’s words of wisdom:

So its been a busy couple of weeks, but I have been trying to keep up with life, and making sure not to be too hard on myself when I do not =). The planner is going well, and I have been trying different ideas to keep my daily to-do list in order.  If you didn’t get a chance before to check out some of my planner pages here is what the to-do list looks like, and you can download it here  and you can check out my other planner pictures here

So I tried using a highlighter to organize the order of importance, I also always number the things I have to do, but since there is so many things to do itis hard to differentiate between everything. Then I got some number stickers that were pretty cool, but not always the best. I also have been breaking different to-dos into bubbles so it is more accurate and I can cross something off even if the whole project is completed. It also helps me organize the steps I need to complete big tasks on the list.

So far the highlighter and use of a multi color pen coupled with numbering has helped. I have also learned to break the projects up over days now. It helps to plan and look forward and makes me feel less stressed out like I have to get everything done today.

This is important; I have been trying to remember this, and I got some amazing inspirational stickers the other day (pics soon!) that remind me, but I have to be gentle with myself. I have to give myself a break and remember I need time for me too. It sounds weird to read that last sentence, but it is true.  Sometimes we all need a break, a time to recoup, and regenerate. So on that note I will leave you with this quote from Dolly Parton, Thank you Miss Parton for the words of wisdom.

“Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”

About Art for a Home and Sustainable Living

Okay, I am an artist. First and foremost I am an artist. I see art in everything, and I think in visuals. I have been making arts and crafts for years, and I have sold a lot of my arts and crafts on ebay and etsy, but lately I have been writing more than anything because I need to make money. But, I think I am finally going to be able to work on my art again, and I am thinking about putting towards a goal in my life. I have dreamed of owning an earthship for years. This self sustaining home is an amazing work of art that would make my living energy efficient and in tune with nature. So, I have decided to sell my art again and put all of the money towards my earthship home. Hence, the title. So I will be posting all of my art here, ans several other sites, and I will post links to my site. I am going to sell my recycled art for my dream home, and this might be the only way that my dream can come true. So if you like art and the earth check out my site and my art. Thanks for listening to my rambles, and I hope to hear from anyone with feedback, comments, and other ideas or inspirations. Let inspiration always move you brightly
