Hey creatives, does your mind prone to wander? I know mine is! LOL Sometimes I feel like I have about twenty different things going on at once, at least in my head! Recently I have been trying out something new that really seems to help…
My mind is prone to wander when I simply have too much going on, which is pretty much all the time! When I see this fairy, I think her mind is prone to wander too! Looks like Michelle was thinking the same thing! So what’s a girl to do? You have to get things done but its kind of hard when you have all these thoughts going on, right? So I’ve been doing something different these past few weeks and it seems to be helping. Maybe it can help you too!
When your mind is prone to wander…
To start my day or whenever I have too many ideas, I grab my notebook. (I have one notebook specifically for this purpose.) I sit down and brainstorm everything I’m thinking – usually, it ends up falling into a few categories, new ideas, things I have to get done and people I need to contact. Because I know this, I am usually writing on two pages that I can easily separate later. I will write until I have nothing else I can think of to write, then I can go back and prioritize my day. Organization is key so I color code the pages on the top corner – new ideas are green and “to do” lists are fluorescent yellow. I number them by priority and highlight the top three or anything that has to be done that day. It has really helped me save me from wandering off task and I get more done this way.
What Michelle had to say about her project!
This darling fairy, is the Blue Fairy from Rita Barakat’s Veil of the Fairies die cut collection. Can’t you just picture her pondering her next flight of fancy or next adventure? I wanted lots of color and texture to emulate a fairy garden, so I used a bit of modeling paste with a stencil. Use an embossing ink pad, I lightly glazed over the raised design, and added Rita Barakat Magical Mysteries Embossing Powders in the shades of Kiss Of The Fairy & Midnight Magic, and set with my heat tool. Bringing the design together I used ink mists and a wood cut out of a mushroom from Plaid,
Fairies invoke joy, and can make the heart smile!
