It's much easier to pack now compared to the old days when my children were little. I remember focusing so hard on their needs that I would forget to pack my essentials. As they got older we created a check list and I turned their packing over to them. Underwear, check, socks, check, bathing suit, check. . . . Although it's just the two of us now I still use a check list.

Even if you're not planning a trip (or you've already been on yours) consider putting a bag of essential supplies together with a small notebook. Keep it in your car or somewhere you can grab it for a spontaneous burst of creativity! I used to doodle in my sketchbook for hours as I waited to pick up one of my sons. Or better yet schedule that 30 minute creativity break. It will refresh you!
Since I'm going on vacation I'm not sure how many posts I'll get out next week. But I can guarantee there will be lots of posts when I get back!
