When I get overwhelmed with things to do I make a list.
When I go to the grocery store I make a list.
When I need a lot of craft supplies I make a list.
When I go out of town and I want to make sure I pack EVERYTHING I could possibly need I make a list.
Needless to say I make A LOT of LISTS!
I love list making. It makes me feel calm about the situation ahead and very organized for what is to come.
The next couple of months are going to be NUTS for me both in personal and work life so it's that time...
I need a LIST!
I like to split my lists up - 1 for work and 1 for personal.
I like to make several lists UNDER a bigger list. For example, I need to make a lot of projects for upcoming events so I will make mini lists of items I need for the projects under each event.

All I can say is thank goodness for my list making skills. I def. need to put this on my resume ha! It gets a little crazy and I'm super OCD about it, but it works for me.
If you don't make lists right now, I HIGHLY recommend it! It's a life saver!
PS notice how I didn't even make a BLOG list...that would be 10 pages long :) But don't worry I won't forget about you all in the mean time...I promise to do my best to keep up!
