GOAL – Clean and organized studio space.
COMMITMENT – 15 minutes of power work each day for 32 days.
Day 1 – Worked on the cutting table today. It is nearly cleaned off and items removed were not dumped, but put in their rightful place. My success was the satisfaction I felt as I entered the room on Day 2 to see a clean and organized work surface. Success.
Day 2 – Worked on organizing pens and pencil buckets on cart. Sucess: I now know where all my color resides. 🙂
Day 3 – Set up sewing machines and tools that go with them. Fixed my lighting and tucked chords away. Success: I was able to complete the Minnie Mouse costume for my daughter. I do realize that I need to make sure I maintain the spaces I organize so that I do not create an unproductive space and waste my time already invested. Success.
Day 4 – I am reaching more success in this challenge than I would if it were not the week before Halloween. I have four costumes to complete: a princess, an owl, a Minnie Mouse and a Link. I am a bit worried about time. Developing the routine of spending 15 minutes before quitting for the day, organizing and cleaning. Cleaned up my owl mess this evening. Success.
Day 5 – Worked on the owl, Minnie and princess today. The owl is finished. It is a great costume. I feel like I have really outdone myself this year. I will have the cutest grand-daughter in the neighborhood. Success.
Day 6 – Princess is complete. Cleaned up and worked on bead drawer. A good day. Success.
Day 7 – Still amazed I am cleaning up after myself. It is so worth it as it makes working the next day so much nicer. We set up the green lights this evening and I finished the Link costume and set up for the party. I spent my commitment time working on the windows which created a mess in the studio. Not worried. After all the photos are done, a couple of nights from now, I will get it back together. The party will be great.
Day 8 – Halloween! I spent zero time in the studio. It is a choice and worth it.
Day 9 – Cleaned out and organized my paint/textile box. No more tangled threads and mixed up templates. Success!
Day 10 – Today was yet another challenge. I suppose all days have challenges. I have been required to be somewhere every single night this week and it would be easy to flake out. Instead, I found myself between doing a have-to-do and being at a game – a twenty minute window. I worked for about fifteen minutes (my goal) and felt pretty good about it all. Success.
Day 11 –
