Keeping Projects Organized

I don’t know about you, but I can easily forget what I signed up for and want to accomplish.  I am getting more involved at school and church, and also have my own projects I want to take on.   So, I started a binder to help me keep track of everything.  I try to think of it like being back in school, with assignments and deadlines.  My art teachers would sometimes hand out a page with the requirements of the project we were to work on, and that was very helpful to me.  I have dividers to keep all my different groups organized.  In the front of the binder is my calendar with due dates, mailing dates and other important dates I need to remember.  Then in each divider is a project outline with more details about what is needed, supplies, due date again, address and anything else that pertains to that project.  And it is helping me!  I feel like a momma who can be up at school and have some creativity for my self and not feel completely overwhelmed.  The key is to keep up with the binder and update it as soon as something new comes along.

I know I have mentioned making Small Art before.  I am loving it so much!  I was hesitant, but am so happy I decided to push myself.  I even have started hosting swaps.  So I came up with a worksheet to keep that organized, and I thought I would share it with all of you.  I hope it helps you keep organized!  See you in the next swap?  Feel free to share this post with your favorite swap hosts so they can download it too.  I really appreciate it.  🙂
