I didn't prime other than paint with white and cream to give it a base. I am planning to seal this, but I have to do some investigating to find a good method. :)

oh man, whenever I can! Ellerie's naptime is ideal or before the sun goes down, but she's already asleep.

I've been experimenting with painting abstracts for the past few months. Peeks have been showing up in "around here" posts or on Instagram (one, two, three, four, five). If I get 29 that I absolutely love painted and I get... Continue reading

If it helps, we dry Ellerie's cloth diapers in the sun! But you are right, I could do MUCH better with so many things. Thank you for pointing that out so kindly.

1. it all goes here, appts, etc. 2. other than a monthly list and my ed cal, I use NOTHING else. I do keep paul's schedule (night shifts, etc) in this planner on the month breakdown page. 3. I am sort of random about that. if something is a specific time and I have space in the column, I will write it there but there is no hour by hour breakdown or "order" to the list. :)

good question! I number priorities when I am feeling overwhelmed. so if I have six things to do on one day and I'm starting to panic, I rank them and then start with task one and work my way to task six. I find that accomplishing one thing gives me momentum and I start to really move through the list. As far as good enough, that's just something that's come with practice. I HAVE to be content with "good enough" or nothing (blog posts, podcasts, etc) would never get done. :)

good question! If it's a MAJOR item I'll add it to the list but for the most part laundry, general cleaning, gas in the car, grocery shopping gets done without me thinking about it. If I have to straighten the house for something major, car check up, md appt, etc, that goes right on this list. I have just ONE daily to-do list. :) e

I don't keep a list of "ideas" but when I have an idea that I am going to move forward on, I work it out in my behance book (more on this here: ttp://eliseblaha.typepad.com/golden/2014/04/whats-in-my-behance-action-book.html) I highlight when items are complete, yes. :)

yes! I meant to link to that!! I use it to PLAN out projects all the time, but not to schedule actual activities if that makes sense.

I have gotten a few questions about how I keep my to-do list organized on a daily basis. I've talked about this a bit (check out this post for the difference between goals & to-do list items), but not since... Continue reading

I heard a lot of great stuff at WDS, but one of my favorite bits came from author Scott Berkun. He spoke about the "inspiring story cycle" (though I am not sure that's exactly what he called it) and about... Continue reading

My quest for the perfect tee-shirt is never-ending, you guys. Pickwick & Weller closed this spring and that was a bummer because I loved their tees. In an attempt to see what's my current fave, I pulled six from my... Continue reading

I JUST photographed a set by step. It's not really a tutorial, but it might be fun to share. Hopefully next week. :)
