Have you ever had every intention of deep cleaning the kitchen (or bedroom or family room or office) only to get stuck in a drawer full of magical wonders? An hour or so later you look up and you are still enjoying the fascination of every treasure in the drawer. That is my overwhelming experience in the Stash Studio. Remember July 12 when I posted this picture? What a mess!
That was eight months ago and I'm still not finished. I have tried to finish many days. After all, all I need to do is put a few things away; throw them in a box; hide them. No big deal, right? WRONG!!!!!!! I have found so many wonderful, magical, happy things. You've heard the terms passive/aggressive and manic/depressive? Well, I am organized/slovenly. I love to organize things. I love to put things in order. I also repeatedly say, "Oh, I'll do that later." When later is several months, things can and will be chaotic and disorganized. I must admit that in a pinch when I am cleaning, I throw everything I don't know where to put into a box and put the box in the Stash Studio.
It does look better than it did eight months ago but why you may wonder has it taken me eight months and I'm still not finished? I decided I needed to not just tuck away, but ORGANIZE! I have to say I love it but it does take time to do it right. Like eight months! I must admit that my plan was to do it when I was recovering from hernia surgery in August. OMG! There is no way I could even climb the stairs let alone crawl around on the floor. Just when I wasn't hurting from that, Dick and I were out for the count with the flu for the two weeks after Thanksgiving. Then came Christmas. Then came our month in Sunset Beach. Soooooo, I haven't really been able to work all of the eight months. If I had, it would be done (or not).
This is an example of a project I got side tracked on and let me tell you there were many, many more.
This is where I want to be and I'm going to get there real soon. I went up today with every intention of finishing but I found not one but two projects that slowed me down. Then I realized I need some notebooks and some plastic sleeves before I can go any farther. While working, I have discover some great organizational tips. My next couple of posted will be sharing those tips with you. 😊
