My Totally Awesome To Do List

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Lisa from Make Me Pretty Shop after she had bought some of my colouring books. She had a brilliant idea for a product but needed some help designing it. I loved the idea so immediately agreed to be a part of it!

The idea was for a to do list to help you get organised, recognise your achievements and hopefully relieve a bit of anxiety. Its inspired by a lovely quote:
"Start by doing the necessary, then do whats possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible" Francis of Assisi.
We've made it bright and colourful, with positive symbols like four-leaf clovers and shooting stars.

Oh, and to make things even better, £1 from each sale is heading straight to the mental health charity, Mind!

Lisa describes the idea behind the list much better than I can, so here's her words from the product description:

"Do you love lists, get excited about beautiful stationery, or just want to reflect on your achievements and better appreciate just how fabulous you are? Then My Totally Awesome To Do List is for you.

Do you write lengthy lists of things you should do, but rarely get to the bottom of them, feel bad about it or fail to reflect on just how much you've done? Then My Totally Awesome To Do List is for you too!
I designed My Totally Awesome To Do List to help me within my own journey to overcome anxiety, stress and panic. 
This practical (yet awesome) To Do List separates out what's necessary from what's possible to help promote good mental wellbeing. The number of items you can add is limited for good reason - you are not superhuman.
It's easy to rush through life without stopping to notice or appreciate how much you do, which is why I've included room to note down your extra achievements, and a tick box to recognise you've been totally awesome that day!"Emma Margaret Illustration Make Me Pretty Shop My Totally Awesome To Do List 2015

The list is available to buy as an A4 or A5 downloadable PDF, which you're then free to print as many times as you like (paper versions will hopefully be available soon!)
