Louise, I know that the beginning of a project like this can be overwhelming. You were smart to start with the boxes. Boxes are big objects and once you remove all of them you will be able to see a big improvement. Next start with another task like putting away all your cutting tools or fabric, etc. Do only one task at a time. Put on some fun music or watch a movie while you do the work. You will be surprised how quickly it will turn into a fun project. I can't wait to see photos!
