  • Lisa

    Can’t wait to see the idea board for your craft/design area – I too need one of these.

  • What a great idea. We’ve been talking about the little things that need to get done and that I’ve been wanting to do. I think writing them down will help – not just to remember all the things but because crossing things off list is great and motivational. Maybe I’ll even post it on my blog (which I have barely touched in months)

  • This is a brilliant idea! I am definitely tackling this for 2011!
