Have you thought about your crafting goals for the New Year? I have been thinking about mine quite a bit lately. You see, my craft room is overflowing. It overwhelms me when I am in it because there are so many projects I want to do and I keep buying more things to do more projects!!!! Yikes!
Since I can't imagine doing without for the whole year, I have made up a plan. Once I finish four projects (it has to be all the same type : knitting, sewing, spinning) I give myself permission to buy the needed materials for another project. But... I must have a project in mind, not just random buying. I have some great stuff in my craft room that I want to use but I keep getting distracted by all the new "ooh, shiny" stuff!!!
I have not renewed several of my knitting clubs for the year too. At first I thought I would be sad, but it didn't bother me in the least. I knew I was getting too much when some of the excitement of getting the package in the mail was gone.
If I was a computer guru I would make a little side bar thingie (see, I don't even know what it is called) to keep track of my progress. Since I am not, I have pinned up a piece of notebook paper that I will use to keep track.
I am pretty excited about doing this. Not only will I have a prettier craft room, I will be using up some of the wonderful goodies I have collected.
If anyone else has a plan, I would love to hear about it.
