Listen Up: Productivity Tips—and Why Jane Mount Wants to Paint Your Ideal Bookshelf

Listen Up BY courtney conway 02/20/2017


On today’s episode of #AFewThings, Claire and Erica talk about the tricks that help them tackle those never-ending to-do lists without (completely) losing their minds. And! Extremely prolific artist Jane Mount talks about the intimate, fascinating world of painting dream reading lists for Ideal Bookshelf, her painting series that’s spawned a book, pins, and wrapping paper!


P.S. Want a planner that looks just as pretty as the example up top? Rachel Wilkerson Miller has the perfect dot journaling primer.


The linkage...



Artist Jane Mount, creator of the charming, fascinating Ideal Bookshelf project, on why our bookshelves are really snapshots of ourselves...

  • You can commission Jane to paint a loved one’s Ideal Bookshelf, like Erica did, or buy the book—and did we mention you can wrap it in paper that has Claire and Erica’s choice books on it?!
  • Or, snag one of Jane’s 20x200 feminist bookshelf prints.
  • Jane’s favorite read right now: Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (it’s a good one).
