How about the mimeograph machine. I can still remember the smell to this day. I was blessed with going to the last one room school house in my state as a child. Good memories.

Quiltah Mama...country school education was a wonderful educational experience...and the teacher that impacted me most in my life was the one I had the last two years I was there. Among the things she taught me, the one I use the most is not to judge a book by its cover.

Quiltahmama- I can remember getting headaches from mimeographed handouts....

Love the idea of angels made from the punch cards OKsewglad LOL! In the late 70's I spent many an hour sitting in front of a keypunch machine punching data, then had to run them through the card reader and it would always spit out at least one card that had some kind of error...

Now, for organizing-- yesterday I tried to rearrange my encaustic paint storage because it's just hurting my knee too much to have to crawl under my table to get to them--- for now they're up on a shelf, but not an optimal location. I'm hoping I can find some kind of drawer unit that will fit under the table where I keep my hotbox. That would be ideal.

And I made a little progress on the upstairs hallway that I'd hoped to have decluttered by the end of Jan. but the gallbladder surgery got in the way of that. It's lots better than it was, but I still need to go through all the books on the bookshelf and decide what to keep and what to let go of.

I also did a little quick tidy up in my sewing studio in preparation for quilting my Feb. UFO-- yes, it is sandwiched and ready to go whenever I get a block of time to work on it. Yay! And I'm determined to not start any new fiber projects until the UFO is quilted.

My goal for Feb. is to continue to declutter the upstairs hallway. I'd like to also start on a serious de-clutter of the sewing studio/guest bedroom this month, but that may not be feasible given all the things I've committed to do.

The studio to-do list is working out great, using it to help me decide what to work on and when to work on things, helped me meet most of my January deadlines. I did decide not to apply to a juried art show when it became obvious that something had to go, but I did finish my UFO and also got the entries in for two quilt shows that I'd wanted to enter.

For Feb. I've got 3 deadlines for art shows. One quilting UFO to finish and several quilting WIPs that have spring deadlines. Looking at my Feb. to-do list reminds me that in Jan. I said I needed to learn to say no. LOL

Okay, so it has taken me more than a month in my spare time but I finally have all of my crafting/sewing supplies sorted, inventoried, labeled and put most of it into the office closet. I inventoried forty-one large, medium and small storage boxes and labeled them. Thirty-six of these boxes fit in the closet. I have a complete list on my computer with their location in the closet. It was so stressful trying to find something before, I ended up with all the boxes in the office because I never wanted to go into the closet to look for anything. Now I'll just search my list, find the box and I'll know the location of the box. Yeah for organization.

I am so impressed Irishgal! If I accomplished this monumental task, the key for me would be keeping it up...making sure I deleted things as they were used or finished and adding new items. Fantastic job done!

I know what you mean. I don't have to worry about updating my list for awhile. I'm in the middle of hand sewing a Grandmother's Flower Garden and that will be my main project for quite a few more months. So for now I feel organized and if I need to find something, I can.

Irishgal, very impressive organizing system. I'm very impressed. After all that hard work, now it's time to let the creative bug out and start creating after your current project.

The hardest part was making sure I had all like items together. I managed to find a few items that I had been looking for recently, so I'm glad I got this done because my crafting was taking over my dining room and I did not want that.

I'm very curious how you named and organized your fabric. Did you put your own descriptions and color? Manufacturer and color? I wouldn't know where to begin cataloguing my stash. Granted, my stash is small and all fits into two dressers, so not really worth my time. But your system intrigues me from an organizational standpoint.
