Keeping Super Organised – Business Mums!

As many of you know, I’m a Mumma to four as well as a business owner. I know many of you are in a similar situation, that is, having kids and running some kind of business, whether that be full time or a side hustle.

I have struggled for so long to try and stay organised, especially with my online presence as it’s just too time-consuming and I get swallowed in the mound of growing posts and the pressure to create original content. I’ve used calendars, I’ve used social planners, I even brought a £100 Filofax in the hopes it would keep me organised, but no.

I stumbled recently across a kick-ass mini-course about calendar systems which opened my eyes to how I view content, creating content and how to organise it. Considering the course was only a mini-course, it’s opened my eyes to where I’ve been going wrong.

It’s not something I have ever felt comfortable to step into. Me, create a piece of art? Use paints and brushes and actually have a recognisable piece of art at the end of it? No I couldn’t possibly do that.

Today however saw me step out of my comfort zone and actually put paint on canvas and bring to life some silver birch trees . I’ve detailed below what I did, why don’t you have a go?

Canvas just got foxy

Foxy sketch

I’ve never been particularly artistic despite selling children’s craft kits.

I think it’s been a lack of confidence really, that people wouldn’t like my work and I’ve let that stop me.

I’ve decided I’d really like to learn to draw, because I want to and because I want to expand my range of canvas designs.
