    Thank You Keep the Motivation Coming Please!

    I have spent the week looking over everyone's space and I have a room that is filled with junk yet its mine and all I need to do is clean it all up and its a whole room adn not a half room Like I am using now. Please keep posting all your great rooms as they are giving me my inspiration and the motivation to get started.

    Thank YOU ALL!

    I still need motivation and I also need more free time........ Perhaps I will go crazy tonight and Start everything. the space is not as bad I think I feel to clean up. I know my whole being will feel better when I get moving and get all organized. please please kick me in the butt to get this going.

    Just start in one small space. Then keep going. It works! All at once is way too overwhelming. Baby steps.

    You can DO it, Girl! My trick when I'm in a mess like that is to take a picture, or several, of the mess. Then when I get some of it done, I feel better. When it's beautiful, I take more pics so I'll have them for inspiration if/when I backslide. Name:  DSCF5792.JPG

    I tell myself I can clean one small area and that is all I have to do. It is amazing how much more I do without realizing it. Doesn't take long before everything is picked up and put away. When my grandkids are sewing I pick a few things up and put them away. When the embroidery machine is running I do the same thing. Helps a lot. It is so much easier to start with a cleaned up space - I make a mess when sewing so it helps to start out a little organized.

    Once you get it all cleaned up and organized. Tell yourself you have to put away everything used for the last project before you can start another. This is what I do and it works for me.
