Over the weekend I worked on my resolution to only have 2 projects going at one given time! I went through all current crafting/sewing projects & mended friend’s clothing that they had given me, finished a gift that I had started making & straightened my workspace to make it a happier & more functional space. Four projects down & my workspace is a disaster. However, I have 4 completed projects that will be leaving my studio & this beautiful peacock piece to show for it. As I continue to make my way through my started projects I will begin using my “outbox” to part with a few tools or materials that I don’t need in my studio that another artist may find useful.
Review your list and and choose a project that fits the below criteria:- A project that can be completed this month, in a few hours. Remember, you’ll be very busy with the rest of your Cure assignments, so don’t get overly ambitious in your choice – stay practical on the time commitment required.
– A project that will make a noticeable difference in either how you use your home (organizing, flow), how something works (repairs) or how things look (decluttering, decorating).
– A project that you’ll be proud to share with the rest of us!
Once you’ve made your choice, do the following:
– Take a few before photos. You’ll want a record of how great a job you’ll do AND we’d love it if you share it with us as a before and after down the road a bit.
– Tell us exactly what single project you’ve decided to tackle in the comments below. It’s a good idea to make a commitment to the whole group on what your goal project is – the more of us that participate fully, the more strength we all have as a group to really get the work done!
– Do your basic prep work. Some examples on what you can get done on the project tonight, online: do some online research on how to do best do your project, ditto on the research for materials and items needed, create a shopping list for supplies, find inspiration photos.
I’m looking forward to hearing what we’re all going to accomplish this month – be sure to add to the comment thread and have fun choosing and prepping your project!
