Are you ready for February’s second Studio Organizing Challenge?
How did you do with the first one?
Here’s a before and after of the pile I tackled. It’s not finished yet, and I never even got to the pile on the ironing board.
I reorganized all the projects in the pile and put a lot of stuff away. I finished a couple tops, reorganized the bins, and there are a couple projects still languishing on my cutting table (gasp! — those need to go!). The pile of bins is now stored in the gap between the chest of drawers and the wall, but eventually, I want that pile of bins gone, too. For now, I’ll settle for it being neater, until I can get further along.
There is still one pile left on that side of the room, but I’m slowly dealing with it, too. My goal is to have all the stuff out of the floor. Then I’ll need to address the other side of the room! I keep going back and forth with the piles — haha!
I have cleaned and sewed my little heart out this month, and feel like I’m making a bit of progress. I hope to continue that, because it feels good, and it’s motivating me to keep going because I like the results. And I still need to deal with the pile on the ironing board, because I still need to change the cover! And wouldn’t it be nice to get to use my entire ironing surface?
I’m finding more UFOs and I’ve started a few new ones, too, but I’ve also finished several things, so my list is actually holding steady. I need it to start going down, though, so I’m gonna keep on sewing as fast as I can!
Since tomorrow is the end of the month, I’ll be spending a lot of time this weekend getting my cutting table back under control, and deciding which projects get to stay on top, and which need to get stored away for the time being.
And now, for our second task of the month:
The only reason I will have trouble with this one is because there are way more than 3 troublesome things left in my studio to deal with. I guess I will start with the 3 most troublesome ones, and go from there. I’ll have to keep you posted on what I choose. I think I might start with the ironing board, since that’s bothering me quite a bit.
Do YOU have 3 troublesome things you can deal with? More? Less? I’d love to hear what they are, and what you plan to do about them.
