If you're itching to do something crafty and creative, but you've got a to-do list a mile long...and come to think of it, you don't even know where you last saw your list, read on...

  • You have colorful sticky notes with all your awesome ideas covering your desk and countertops, but you can never actually locate them (or you simply forget about them by the end of the day).

  • You've got all these amazing ideas that pop into your head every time you take a shower, but with no clear way to organize or remember them you never seem to move forward.

  • You have a collection of printed planners that could rival the planner section of Staples, but after filling out the first few pages you stop using it because they were designed to fit someone else's organizational process, not yours.

No matter how hard you try, you can't find a way to keep track of all your lists and tasks.

There’s so many systems designed to fit some people's organizational style but aren't adaptable to you and YOUR unique needs.

I'm here to tell you: you're not alone.

I've been there.

  • I've tried about 17 different planners over the years, and none of them were quite what I was looking for.

  • I did the post-it note system, which just ended up as a jumbled mess.

  • I tried just keeping things in my head. But I would forget to get things done that I really wanted to do.

What you need is a system that is adaptable and portable. One that doesn't rely on complicated planner pages with extra sections that were made to fit the designer's needs instead of yours.

Something that lightens the burden of remembering to do things on your list instead of requiring you to remember where you actually put the list.

Having systems to help you organize your projects, to-do items, and ideas, as yawn-inducing as that may sound, will help you in your creative process. Instead of trying to keep all these big ideas in your head or written on tiny scraps of paper that you inevitably lose, you'll instead have a few set places to store all everything.

In this video, we'll walk through why having these systems is important and the three tools I use as a creative entrepreneur, mom, and partner to organize all aspects of my life. You'll also get an overview of what Trello is and what it can be used for.
