Daily Sketches

I have started making my To Do doodles in the new sketchbook I bought. It's a Canson XL Watercolor wirebound pad, size A4 (which is slightly narrower and longer than 8.5 x 11"). Since today is an auspicious day, I decided this would be a great first day. I have more space now, so I am going to add something at the bottom of the page - a quote, some notes about the day, and probably some more doodles - under my To Dos.

This system is working out great for me. I am eager to get my housework and other chores done, so I can have the fun of coloring in the doodles. Much more fun than crossing things off a list. And the thought of not finishing a page before the day is over really keeps me motivated. I still have one very important task to complete today, but I'm waiting until it's a more civilized hour on the West Coast.

I wonder what tomorrow will look like?

To Do

Belated happy new year wishes! I've been distracted with my watercolor attempts, trying to figure out what I enjoy doing the most and practicing that. As you might have guessed, I am also doing some sketching. The other day I hit upon the idea of sketching the next day's to do list. Fun, and motivating, because I can only color in each sketch once I've completed (or at least started) that task. So if you'll excuse me, I've got some sweeping to do...
