I have been organizing my goals. My sweet daughter, Katharine, gave me this cute notebook.
I decided to list my goals, tasks and ideas, daily, on separate pages.
Some are goals with deadlines. Others are tasks I would like to get done. Then there are ideas that pop in my head. I can ponder those further and act or forget it. There is sooooo much satisfaction and instant gratification is crossing off the things achieved and completed.
A few days after starting my goal book I found De-Stash Along 2010!!!!!!!! Missie says "The goal is super simple: to use as much of your current craft stash as possible by the end of the year. That is it!"
So I am IN! I had already decided that I was going to do my best to only purchase what is necessary to finish current Works In Progress and to use up my ridiculous stash of fabrics and yarns. It will be very, very hard for me as a complete fabriholic and yarnoholic. Often I absolutely must be physically restrained when I see a bargain or a pretty pretty fabric or lush yarn!
I did buy this nifty ribbon organizer for half price at Micheal's last week. Now these pretties are not stuffed in a box where I forget about 'em. (Yes, you see pics of Bill Hubby and my kids from way back and my beloved Mugsy from long ago.)
Paintings That Fly, asked me about my fabric stash one day. Here it be piled high on 3 wide shelves on one wall and 2 on another wall and my scraps and pieces in a nifty organizer that I won!
What I didn't show you are the many huge plastic tubs with lids also full to overflowing with fabrics!
And here's the yarn stash. Don't let looks deceive you - those shelves are deep and packed!
When I figure out how to do it, I am going to list my De-Stashing projects over on the side here.
