– On the drive home from Las Vegas, I started to think of all the projects I had to do. I told Q about my to do list. She told me about a great idea that she was given during one of her “teacher” meetings. Make a to do list on card stock and use post-it notes to write down each to do item. Arrange the items on the to do list in order of importance.
I started out drawing line on my green card stock. Soon I had the measurements I wanted. I decided I needed something with a design it.
I found my tulip stationary and decided to use it. I lined it up with the measurements on the green card to draw the lines on the paper.
Then I glued it to a green stock paper and labeled it. I wrote what projects need to be done on “Post it” notes and posted them on my “Projects To Do:” board. I used a “Page Up” holder to hold my list. So far I have made three of these. Projects To Do is for my sewing projects, Knitting Projects, and To Do Projects are for around the home. The green holder you see it the best! Q learned about it from some of the other students in her watercolor class. You can get it for about $3 at Ikea!
– This is the best idea! I used it every day at work: grade papers, make copies, finish Icon PowerPoint, etc. Kept me very organized at work. As a task is completed, pull-off and throw away the Post-it, rearrange the other notes. Never used it at home. When Curls got home from vacation and we were discussing what needed to be done neither of us could remember the great ideas we had in May. Now, I’m older so she has a younger brain. I really think it is her responsibility to remember everything I say. Geeze……. OK, I’m a computer geek, as mentioned many times. The result is the my To Do List is created on the computer using Word. I like to use the small Post-it notes. The table was created using the size of the small Post-it. The cells were outlined with a border, then a border was applied to the page. Lists are my best-friend, so each cell was numbered. For my craft To Do List I just titled it “Crafts”. Barb gave me the Page-up holder and it works perfectly. The To Do List was printed on a colored card stock. There are times when I have a really small idea that just needs a “place mark” so I will use the very small tab marker and stick it to the side. Hum, maybe another Post-it needs to say: Zentangle a To Do List! If anyone is interested in the document, just leave a comment requesting it or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always looking for great organizational tips. If you have one, please share!
