Yes, organization is good. In an earlier post this year, I mentioned I was still destashing, but was going to focus on organization. Here is the first project I tackled:
That is all the solid colored 6 strand floss I own. Everything contained in that neat little plastic storage box was in a plastic bag, and I had to rummage through it every time I needed to use floss. While it was fun going through all the colors, it was also frustrating. I wanted to get down to the actual fun part of using embroidery floss – embroidering. Plus, I realized I was wasting time.
Now don’t get me wrong, it was fun watching the colors spill through my fingers, but I’m aging, and I only have so much time left. Plus I have that duality thing going on in my head constantly. Should I be carefree and merrily keep my supplies wherever, or should I be organized and get to the creativity?
Is this a left brain-right brain conflict? I love taking those tests, and end up pretty much in the middle most of the time. Yup, even my brain is sitting on the fence, so it’s no wonder I always see both sides of a problem. Let me tell you, it makes it much harder to ever come to a decision. Just ask my husband. LOL
For now, organization is winning the debate, and I will be showing more completed projects throughout the year.
