This year, I’m bringing back the Studio Organizing Challenges. After not doing them regularly for more than a year and a half, I know I’ve probably had a bit of a backslide in some areas.
If you are like me, and you know you need to step up your game a bit this year in getting things more organized, feel free to join me.
I’m not going to be posting the challenges weekly like I used to; I’m only going to be posting one challenge a month, and I’ll be posting it on or around the 15th of each month. You can see all the challenges on the main Studio Organizing Challenges page (as well as revisit challenges from past years, if you’re so inclined).
For January, I’ll start off with a question:
If you joined in on The Final Countdown, did you discover an area . . . or a pile . . . or a situation . . . anything in particular that you didn’t have time to address or weren’t called to address during The Final Countdown? I did . . .
So here’s this month’s task . . . are you ready?
I confessed to having more than one pile to clean up, and I chose my largest, most annoying one to work on for The Final Countdown. However, I’m more than ready to move on to my next most annoying pile, which is this right here:
This is my batting storage closet in my longarm room. Last year was a super hectic year of quilting hard and fast for lots of other people, so random pieces got chucked into a pile, rolls were delivered and parked in inconvenient places around the room, and I let it all get really out of control. What a mess, right?
Well, now it’s a new year, and I’ll once again be busy with lots of customer quilts, so I want to get this picked up, organized, and cleaned up before it just keeps getting worse.
So that’s my project for this month’s Studio Organizing Challenge.
What will you be working on?
What leftover thing from last year is still bothering you about your sewing space?
Did you leave a pile somewhere that you know you need to deal with?
Do you have an area that needs to be cleaned up and organized better for the way you work? (I have lots of these, but baby steps . . . !)
If you’re like me, and still have some things to get organized, I hope you’ll join me in this challenge. I’d love to hear what problem area you’ll be working on. It might give all of us some ideas, so leave a comment!
