I have a problem for which I do not think a support groups exists. I am a serial craft/home project starter. What's the problem with that you ask? I am also a serial craft/home project unfinisher (yes I just made up a word). While sitting at my desk the other morning daydreaming about how I could probably just make a new cover for my guest futon instead of buying one I had what Oprah devotees would call a light bulb moment. I quickly put on the breaks before ordering those 10 yards of white canvas and reminded myself that I have half finished curtains hanging in the living room, art that needs to be framed and hung, a hat I never finished knitting, the list goes on.
I decided the best way to push myself to finish all of these projects is to make myself accountable to you all. I'll post my list of projects here and provide regular updates with projects that I can hopefully cross off the list. A little nagging from you won't hurt either. Fell free to leave comments every so often that sound something like, "Hey Michelle it's been awhile since we've seen a project update. Have you finished those dang curtains yet?". So here goes the list:
- Finish living room curtains
- Update inspiration board
- Put finishing touches on craft room storage project
- Finish knitting that darn hat before Spring comes
- Complete last years Christmas gift for one of my girlfriends (whoops)
- Make cushion for bench at the foot of the bed
I know I'm probably leaving a few out so I'll update this list if I think of more. And don't forget to periodically nag me to get these projects done!
