Wow! You guys worked hard this time! I can’t even imagine how much paper got recycled among us in the last few days!
I cleaned out one file drawer, started on the second one (I only have 3 altogether), and then went to work on the piles that are already out. Because one of my file drawers was clean, I was able to file a bunch of stuff that belonged in there, so that helped. Let me just say I still have a long way to go, but due to some customer deadlines, I have not yet had as much time to devote to it as I’d like. But I’m not giving up, and will continue working on it when I get some stolen moments.
I also started on project organization, and cleaned out one of my rolling carts. I still have two more of those to go through, then a chest of drawers, and the shelves in my UFO closet! Long way to go there, as well. In just cleaning out one rolling cart, my UFO list grew by 13 — so now I’m afraid to clean any more until I’ve finished a couple things — haha!
I got my 2020 Project List up on the wall, made my first of three “100 Days” lists for this year, got my planner all set up for this year, and decided to join in on the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge, too.
Here’s my list for that:
You can join in on this, too, if you want. Click HERE to find the info and the form to fill out.
I love all the comments you left about what you’re doing, how you were dealing with the challenges, what you got done, your lists and plans, and how you’ve sorted your projects. Such good ideas and inspiring information. Makes me inspired that I can possibly get a lot done this year. A lot of us are all in the same situation! (Makes me not feel so alone in my mess, too!)
So, did you get done? Or, like me, will you have to continue chipping away at it? Does it feel good to have some things a bit more organized starting out the year? It always does to me, even tho I haven’t done a lot just yet. Thank you to everyone who played along, did the challenges, and commented. That’s what makes it fun!
So now for the prizes. There are three . . . one for each task. I try to give things that are helpful in your organizing efforts and not add to your clutter for this challenge. So without further ado, the three prize winners are:
Task One: Shasta
Task Two: Judy Smith
Task Three: Paula Hedges
Congratulations to the winners, and even if you didn’t win, I hope you found it worth it to try. A clean sewing room is part of the reward! We’ll certainly do it again at the end of this year, and meanwhile, I’ll still be offering up periodic Studio Organizing Challenges throughout the year.
And I’ll be back in a couple days to wrap up the 350 Blocks Project for 2019 and get the 2020 version started off, so check back!
