to-do list


Woke up this morning with a plan... lots of stuff to do today. The best part is I feel the motivation & inspriation to do it. I am working on a couple fun projects lately that will stretch myself and my hope is that you will embrace & love it. Don't you love when I tease you like that... Well, for now there are to-do lists, lots of lists. Sometimes I get things crossed off & sometimes Q&A have other exciting adventures for me...

I'm such a list girl... are you? The page above was made for Creating Keepsakes & focused on our daily routine. Keep in mind this was before I was a mother of 2, so things are a bit different now. I took the photo in the morning then wrote down everything I planned on doing that day. It was fun! What I should have done was make a prequel page listing what I actually did get done... ha!

i tried doing something like this layout in december, but they way i envisioned it was not working (i wanted a couple of pics and then a list on a notebook sheet of a paper with that schedule)....so i ended up with a layout with a bunch of pictures of me looking exhausted and a title that read "only by his grace" because i remembber having to pray that morning knowing it was gonna be a hectic and busy day..those kinda days make me grumpy so i prayed that i would be able to get thru it...i did and i actually still got to take a nap!!GOD IS SOOO GOOD!!! although i do kinda like the way it came out---I LOVE THE ONE YOUVE MADE!!!

I am a TOTAL list girl...love to check things off as I get them done! Sometimes, I'll back up & write things down that I've already done just so I can check them off! :)

I'm totally a list person, too. I should do this sort of layout. Love it.

My daughter did the SAME thing the other day. How funny. Mascara... you can check it out at :

Awesome layout!! Definitely love lists! My to-do list will never be digital. Something about scratching off item by item...

Avery may like mascara, but for my Katelyn it's all about the lipstick - lots of lipstick!

Ashley said...

I really love that layout a lot.

I am a total list girl.. I am stressed out until I write everything down that needs to be done and then when its written.. *ahh* I'm focused :)

Beautiful LO as always! Keep em coming!

Melanie said...

I love the LO. I need to be a list girl. Maybe I would feel more organized! LOOOOOVE the mascara photo. Totally priceless!!!

I'm a total list girl too. I have about 8 lists going on right now. A to do list, things I want to buy, Things for my hubby to do around the house, Thank you card list of names (my daughter had her 2nd b-day party on Sat), blog ideas list etc.. I love notebooks. I write everything down.

Jenn said...

I have so many notebooks dedicated to all my lists. teehee.

I love the mascara pic. I had a very similar experience with my little explorer right before church. We were going to be late so I cleaned her up before I even thought about taking a pic. Turned out we were late anyways so now I wish I had grabbed the camera. Oh well. I'm sure there will be a next time. She's too sneaky a girl to only try it once. ;0)

Love your LO!!!

Laura KW said...

I am a total listmaker! I start off each day with a 'to-do' list and take great pride in crossing things off. Love the lo, will have to do one for my 'me' book.
Thanks for the inspiration!

tania said...

love.love.love. the layout. i've wanted to do a layout like this for sooooooo long---have my list ready---but haven't gotten down on paper yet. thanks for the inspiration.

Arianna said...

I absolutely am a list girl.. I wouldn't remind most of the things I have to do without them!!!!
Nice LO and nice blog!!!!

Latrice said...

I'm a total list person. My lists never get done for sure! LOL!! Every night I transfer what didn't get done from that days list and put those things at the top of the next days list. Somethings do end up on list after list for some reason! ;) Great layout. I did one called the never ending day of errands. Another task that never seems to get done huh?

Great picture too. I haven't had the mascara incident, but we've had fun with chapstick!

Starr said...

Great LO :D I'm a list maker & am actually getting quite good at working through them & crossing stuff off! LOL Never thought to create a LO about it before though so thanks for the idea :)

Emily said...

It's nice to wake up with a list and FEEL motivatied! I adore this backdrop- what a clever idea to use your list as the background. -e

Lindsay said...

I so do that too! Make lists so I can cross things off as I do them, or not! That is hilarious! I'm glad I'm not the only one! Really cute idea!

travelingmama said...

I love the composition on your layout! My jaw hit the floor when I scrolled down to the photo our your daughter. Now THAT is funny!

EmmaJ said...

LOVE IT!

Brandie said...

I absolutely love this idea! I am a huge list maker and this is the perfect way to capture that. I just love the inspiration that I always find here. Thanks:)

Lisa Lew said...

Thanks for the laugh, I needed that.:)

Michelle said...

Love your layout! Did you print that right on the cardstock?? If so, I'm assuming you have a printer that prints on 12x12 paper. Which one do you use??

mandiegirl said...

Such a fun way to remember the little details of your life!

nancy said...

I definitely make lists... and if I do something that wasn't on the list, I write it on there later and cross it off. Feels good.

Dawnie said...

You've inspired me (yet again)... would love to see a post from you now of what "a day in the life of LizzyK" looks like. Seriously! I don't know how you do it... how do you find the time to write an eloquent journal entry, throw together a gorgeous scrapbook page project, manage a household, mother 2 young girls, dress cute all the time, etc, etc, ETC???? I could use some inspiration from you other than great layouts. :) Do you mind sharing? If you've already done something like this in a previous post - which I somehow missed! - just link me to it. Thanks much! You remain one of my favorite places to 'net to. :)

Angie... by the said...

Love the lo! I'm doing a Book of Me, and this is perfect. I can't figure out how you typed the journaling in a perfect square. What am I missing??? Thanks for all of your continued inspiration. I know it's another post, but love the donut picture, too. :) Been linking you from my blog since day one!
