Urge to Purge Challenge Update:

  I started a craft room purge on October 23rd.  I was successful in keeping a promise to myself to purge some area every day until I had completely purged every drawer, shelf, and storage container.  Some days I could only spare 5 minutes, 15 minutes, or an hour.  It took longer than I expected, but I did get it done.  I finished the morning that we left for Florida to see my grandmother.  What a difference!  My craft room already feels like the happy place I want it to be, despite the piles in the floor awaiting Phase II: re-organization.  My work desk is clearer, allowing me to create with ease.

  We were gone for a week…no internet, no crafting, no blogging, oh my!  This little break from purging was welcome, but I am ready to get back to my plan:

Phase I:  Purge
a)  craft room (check!)
b)  craft room closet
c)  outside craft room

Phase II:  Re-organize

  Tomorrow I will attempt to begin on the closet.  Wanna see what awaits me?
 Not so bad, right?  I don't know if I will purge a whole cart or just a few drawers at a time.  But there is more:
  Oh my.  How did this happen?  This is also where Santa hides his gifts.  He ordered most of his gifts at yesterday, so I'd better purge and make room before they arrive :)

  Will you join me in my venture?  Some of you started with me already and have accomplished quite a lot.  A few of you are starting later, let me know how you are doing.  I would love to have the closet done before Thanksgiving…or by December 1st…

Happy Monday!

I think I'd close that closet door and find a new place to hide. Yikes!

Roberta said...

Ha! ha! I love what Diane says about finding another space and it made me think..."Run Forest...Run". But you know how I am when it comes to tackling a mess and getting it all organized...just do it ;} You'll feel so much better when it's all done and you can free yourself up for more creating. I'm right there with you to have my purge done for the Holidays...and I've got a Sketchbook project in the's due by Jan. know how I love a Like you drawer at a time and it's done before you know it...alot of's time spent thinking about DOING that is wasted time...especially because you are just obsessing and stressing ;} Great job so far and can't wait to see more!
