This is the current state of my craft room after coming back from my five day scrapbooking crop. What a mess!! I can hardly see the floor!! Therefore, I have made the momentous decision to buy The Scrap Rack System and take their 2013 Organization Challenge to see if I can find my floor again. Right now it's treacherous for me to even try to walk to my computer. Thus I am doing most of my online correspondence on my older (and slower) laptop. As my daughter said when I posted this picture on Facebook: "For shame, Mother, for shame" And I really am ashamed. I haven't brought anything else that I haven't already used up, it's just that I've dragged a lot of "stuff" out and haven't put it back. Also, it's time to PURGE again, which I started doing right after Christmas, but then I got sidetracked with the retreat. This week, my assignments are: 1. Make a poster stating what main benefit I will achieve by cleaning up my room. 2. Make a list of goals to achieve this week. Write them down and check them off as I finish them. 3. Gather all loose items pertaining to scrapping that are sitting around the house and put them in one place. 4. Here's the hard one - PREPARE TO PURGE. Have a purge box, and what goes in it, cannot come out again. So I will get with the program and let you know how I do.
