My goal this week/weekend is to get my craft and sewing area back into a state where I'd be ABLE to sit down and work on things. I have decluttered and weeded through my fabric stash. That alone was a HUGE task. No matter how hard I try I am sure I WON'T be able to do the same thing with my paper stash, but no matter. I will find better ways to organize everything and it will turn out wonderfully well. I think I will (gasp) let go of some back issues of magazines. I am also going to give to goodwill any tool that doesn't work EXACTLY as I had hoped, like the paper cutter I got for free which doesn't make a perfectly clean cut. Gone. And. . . in this way, I hope to be able to get things into MUCH better shape, ready for some creative Heydays! Hallelujah! I've already got quite a few sewing projects lined up, and I'm excited for those. I need to start 'organizing' some future scrapbook projects the way I organize sewing projects, getting together the photos, papers and embellishments that I plan to use. It helps me to organize my brain with sewing, so why not scrapbooking?
And she's Off. . . .
