I am a freak about making lists! I make a list for everything! Last summer I was making a list for our vacation of what to pack. Know what #1 was on my list?? "Make a list of groceries." My husband thinks I'm a complete dork! I just love the order and thought process involved in making lists. Once I've made a list I feel more organized and ready.
Why not bring that list into journaling on a layout?! Instead of writing out a story or complete sentences, make a list of things that were involved within the layout. Some examples include: child's birthday wishes, vacation necessities, or a "to do" list. I could even do a layout ABOUT my list making obsession!
