Okay, so as I have stated in past blogs (ehehhehehehhe, I can actually say "past blogs" and totally mean it!), I am on a Project Life Like kick/frenzy/shopping spiral that is spinning out of control. Because of that and my extreme CADD (Crafty Attention Deficit...squirrel!...Disorder :)), I have had to consider some organizational changes in my studio. BLEH! Just typing that sentence gets me all kinds of itchy and craving chocolate. However (she said while shoving a calamine lotion covered Snickers bar down her throat), because I kind of need to have all of the supplies handy while taking on the mammoth Project Life like project, I have run into a few snafus. I am generally NOT organizational challenged because if it ain't got a place, it gets gone (just ask my ex-husband). The problem, it seems, with my Project Life Like obsession is that I don't exactly know what I need (and YES, I have done a few layouts so don't even try to be all like "if you build it, it will come"), I have bought a lot of "shite (really?? There is no other word for it all)" for said project, and I want to do every technique known to the scrapping world when it comes to each and every pocket on each and every page (therefor I feel the need to also have every PL Like supply known to man at my disposal).
Another issue that gets me all in a tizzy is that I need to be portable. Well, I don't need to be portable but my Project Life Like supplies DO. As some of you know, I vendor at scrapbook retreats and attend day crops and scrapping girly weekends etc. When I go, I want to be able to grab a few large (HUGE) organized containers, my jammies and Big Poppa's credit card and be on my way. With my current set up, I am not so sure that can happen.
And it is not like I haven't done my homework...
I am on three Project Life Like Facebook groups. I watch every (EVERY) You Tube video that contains the words Project, Life or a combination of the two. I stalk/follow/pester the hell out of many of the bloggers that are infamous for PL. I pin the bejeezus out of any board that has ever showcased a 4x6 or 3x4 journal card on Pinterest.
Wanna see? Not the above paragraph because that, even to my ears, seems a bit overboard. Wanna see my Project Life Like organization SKILLZ?? And then give me some feedback or Martha's phone number or Organized Jen's personal home address for help too? Remember, this (like Weight Watchers) is a judgmement free zone....
|The top drawer still has some room (be still my beating heart). There are several smaller containers that keep my flair, sewing goodies, printables and items from cut files, little paper odd and ends, and non-sticker embellishments.|
Enough to make you all itchy too right? Like is your heart totally racing now because you so want to dig into my stash and fix it?? Well COME ON!! I will make you a cup of coffee, bring you a fabulous cupcake from Maxie B's and watch you work INSTEAD OF THE LAUNDRY! And YOU can organize until your hearts content instead of of doing your laundry too. But seriously, if you have suggestions, I would love, love, love to hear them. I am ordering a medium organizing plastic thingy from Close to My Heart from a friend which may help a wee little bit, but give me your awesome suggestions too!! As always, thanks for stopping by and reading my blog INSTEAD OF THE LAUNDRY!!
