READ THE BIG PIECES

No Motivation

I haven’t scrapbooked (or done anything crafty, really) since March. Just haven’t been inspired or felt like digging everything out. I keep saying I need to clean and organize before I can do anything. I can’t work when there’s a mess because I feel like I should be tackling the mess before having “fun”. However, if I’m not in the room, the mess doesn’t bother me. Go figure. :-p

I did two loads of laundry yesterday AND cleaned off one table in my craft area. CLEARED it! Woo Hoo! Go me!

However, clearing it consisted of separating the piles o’ crap into pre-marked bins (paper, adhesives, memorabilia, tools, etc.) so I still have all the shit to contend with, but I’m breaking them down into more manageable piles (or so I tell myself). I have several hobbies to organize as well as regular household stuff (i.e., found a pair of pliers in my crafting stuff because I was too lazy to walk it the extra 20 feet to the tool bag, so left it on my drafting table *sigh*).

Anyway, my point, I’m finally tackling the mess that I’ve been using as an excuse to not do anything. Don’t know what motivated me to do that, but let’s hope the clean craft area will motivate me to craft, because goodness knows nothing else has been!

  1. Cleaning and Crafting
    Yes! Yes! Clean!
    Clean so I can come over and craft!

  2. Re: Cleaning and Crafting
    You’re always welcome to come over and craft! But a cleaner work area is a must. Therefore, in order to “play with my friend”, I will clean my room. Damn shame that rule followed me into adulthood. *hrmph*

    Hey there!
    Congrats on getting things cleaned up and out. lol
    Maybe it will inspire you to do some scrapbooking.
    Thad moved out last week and I put all of my scrapbooking stuff in there and its gotten me in the mood to do some scrapping after like a year of not doing any.
    Why dont we challenge each other with getting a page done a week or say so many pages in a month or something like that and share it with each other so that it keeps us going?
    What other crafts do you do? I play around with phtography but thats it. Im not “carfty” at all.
    You know how people say that everyone has a hidden talent? Well, mine is still hidden and hasnt came out at all!
    About this journal….. I can not figure out how to do my journal up as far as what I want it to look like. I have a paid account but it looks like all I can do is change the colors. Do you know how I can add patterns, etc?
    Its had me frustrated all day! LOL
    I dont want to use it unti I have it just right.

    Hey!
    I’d love to join a challenge with you, but I’m still at least 2 weeks away from being able to actually WORK in my craft room. Maybe my half of the challenge can be getting my room organized/cleaned. (I currently have barely 1 surface to work on!)
    I also sew, cross stitch and make jewelry. I don’t have any hidden talents. I’m a talentless hack. :-p
    I can’t do my own designs on the journal, I just use the pre-designed ones, but there is a way to make it your own, I’m just not computer-savvy enough to know how to do it. Maybe there are communities on lj that can explain it?
    And you have to use it ANYWAY! Because it gives me something to read at work :-p
