How to stay productive and organized (freebie printable or editable download)

I don’t know about you, but I am inspired to be more productive and organized in 2021. There is optimism in the air, that this year has the potential to be a good one. It doesn’t have to be the best one, only a good one, am I right? Keeping things organized will help me stay productive and on track. Ensuring that I at least have a decent year ahead of me. 
I am list maker by heart. I like being able to keep things visible and I especially like being able to check off items.
I whipped up a daily routines checklist in a weekly format. The checklist includes a morning, afternoon, and evening task list. Each section houses 7 tasks.

An inexpensive alternative to inks

I’ve been spending the last few weeks participating with Creative Bug and their inktober class with Lisa Congdon. It’s been amazing getting to create drawings from nature, playing with shapes and different colors. During some of the sessions, I was running pretty low on a variety of ink colors, so I decided to try food coloring from the dollar store. Guess what? They worked so well!!

In fact, I created this entire mushroom, using food coloring, a white gel pen, and a black micron pen. I wasn’t sure at first how well it would work, but when I began to dilute the color with water, I began to really see the variety of shades. The only pitfall? It dries ridiculously fast, so make sure to BLEND, BLEND, BLEND quickly.

I definitely see myself using this method in my art room since inks can get expensive! I hope you try it out, let me know how it goes!!
