2017 Final Countdown

Posted on December 28, 2017 by prairiemoonquilts in Challenges, Studio Organizing Challenge

Here we are again — looking at the final few days of a year that passed oh, so quickly.

And that means it’s time once again for The Final Countdown!!

This is the 9th Annual Final Countdown, and as far as I can see, I need to keep continuing it as an annual tradition, because I always have some mess or another that I want to get under control heading into the next new year — how about you?

It’s our last chance for this year to wrap things up, and get a fresh start on January 1st. And you have a chance at winning a prize for your efforts, so, as My Cowboy would say, “There ya go!”

So here we go with The Final Countdown so you can join me in this effort to start 2018 off with a little bit cleaner plate!

If you’ve done this with me before, then welcome back. If you’re new here, I hope you’ll join in with us this time. Here’s how it works . . .

  • • Beginning tomorrow, I’ll post a task for us to do each day for three days in a row; a different task each day.
  • • Your job is to do the task, if you so desire.
  • • After you’ve done the task, leave a comment on the post that you did it, and how it went for you. If you want to write a blog post of your own and link back to it, that’s great — we all love stories, and photographic evidence!
  • • I’m offering up a prize for each task, so be sure and leave a comment for each task that you complete. You’re only eligible for the prize for that task if you did the task and left your comment. If you do all three, you’ll have three chances to win. How many you choose to do is completely up to you. Easy!

I’ll give you till January 8th to complete all the tasks and leave your comments. I’ll draw for the three winners late in the day on the 8th. That should give you time to get to them all, right?

So there you have it — simple rules, and prizes!

Check back in tomorrow, and I’ll post our first task. Are you ready?

    For some reason my e-mail isn’t letting your messages through. Do you suppose the evil e-mail police have the flu, too. Nasty bug here–hope to get in on the challenge…but..cough cough cough is all I seem good at right now. Happy New Year!

    Does the count end on November 30, or do I add the 67 I’ve made so far in December?

    Thanks.

    I’m on it, Shelly! I did start in a remote corner of the studio that has neglected for a looooong time! There’s a retreat scheduled for Jan. 8-11 so my goal is to get everything cleaned up by then. Yikes!!
