Hello readers! I have been working so much lately that I haven’t had many days off in a while. Which means I really have to take advantage of the days I am free and have some time to spend at home. Instead of wasting away these days watching mindless TV, I of course like to be more productive and complete some tasks. Here are some ideas for productive things to do if you’re bored and find yourself with some extra time!

    1. I love setting myself up to be productive (even if I don’t actually finish anything haha) so having a pre made list makes it easy for me to “grab and go” with a task. My brushes are in serious need of a cleaning too! Thanks for reading!
