I have decided to participate in Organizing Junkie's 52 Weeks of Organizing in 2011. I'm actually super-excited about the project. Each week, on Friday, Laura from I'm An Organizing Junkie will host a link-up where bloggers can share their most recent organizing project. According to Laura, there is "no project too small." Since very small organizing projects are usually all I have time for when school is in session here, I look forward to having a place to celebrate even the smallest of accomplishments!
The project I'm focusing on this week, though, was a really big project. Several years ago, I quit my small Creative Memories business and dumped all of my remaining inventory in my craft/scrapbooking/sewing room. Over the years, the room just got messier and messier until I had to risk tripping over something and hurting myself just to get to my stash of wrapping paper.
Now, every once in a while, I would work on organizing in my crafting room - a delightful room which I feel absolutely blessed to have which is attached to our bedroom. I would work in there for an hour or more and get extremely little accomplished which was very discouraging so I wouldn't be motivated to organize in there again for quite a while. In the meantime, I wasn't doing ANY scrapbooking, sewing, or decorative painting. I just kept thinking that I would get back to doing those things "once I got my craft room organized."
