Well it's come to the end of the month of March and I feel like I have blinked and missed most of it!!
It's a good idea to have a review of the month just to see exactly how much has been achieved and not to focus on the ever growing to do list!!
Now you all know I love a to do list, although I have to admit they have a draw back as it never gets smaller. Mine tends to get messier the longer it gets 😃. I like to highlight things when they are done or annotate they have been moved etc, so my lists and diary are messy - but functional!! the OCD part of me HATES it - I am very conflicted!!
I tried the fancy bullet journal with pretty pictures and templates - I loved it but I spent more time making it look pretty and no time doing anything productive!!
You know the song "busy doing nothing, working the whole day through". Being busy is not the same as being productive!!
Anyway its time to be my biggest cheerleader and do a review of all my successes this month!!
Here are some of the top ones!!
I set up 2022/2023 accounting spreadsheet (not a fun job!).
I started and finished the 2 dog commissions for a client ❤️🖤.
I rewrote and modernised all the vouchers for sew like a pro lessons.
Updated various pages on my website.
Created a tiktok account and posted a few videos.
Wrote this months box pattern.
Completed my manx log cabin square challenge for March (with help from Anne xx).
10,000 steps done everyday in March and marching for Maggies challenge completed.
Upgraded the reversible bag pattern
Having a plan helps get things done!!
At the end of the month I review the targets for the month and set new ones for the following month. I even organise and plan my craft projects in a planner all of their own 🥰 (find out more here)
Give it a try and see if it helps you get more productive :
What 3 things (craft or life) would you like to achieve in April?
My top 3:

15 Manx log cabin squares
Successfully record and release a Youtube video !! (That’s a whole different blog post 😂)
A productive April starts here ⭐️⭐️ If you want to get your crafts organised helping you be more productive then grab one of my planners (I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a new “life” planner released this year 😘🤫)
