Looking forward

My goal for this year is to complete the projects I started last year.

And declutter my entire house.

I started so many projects last year that are so close to being done.  Most projects need just one more thing and can be called done.  So, that is what I will do - complete those projects before starting anything new.

To hold myself accountable, I am posting a list that I will check off as I finish each project.  Most likely, I will  add to this list.  When they are finally finished, I will post about them.  Yay for me!

Here is my list of unfinished projects (in no particular order):
1.  Hem curtains for Mom and Dad's house.
2.  Hem and paint Caleb's curtains.
3.  Organize Caleb's new desk.
4.  Finish Caleb's room and call it complete.
5.  Finish Olivia's canvas prints.  See above picture.
6.  Add Olivia's new bedding to her beds.
7.  Finish napkin pillows for master bedroom.
8.  Label bins in Ella's closet. 
9.  Label bins in gameroom.
10.  Add bench or bookcase to Ella's room.
11.  Organize craftroom.  Label drawers.
12.  Make window treatments for office.
13.  Finish office armoire.
14.  Hang something on walls in office.
15.  Finish organizing DVDs.
16.  Hang new shower curtain in guest bathroom.  And paint?
17.  Update recipe binder.
18.  Make chore charts for kids.  And then make them do chores.  Chad too.
19.  Organize jewelry.
20.  Sort through kids school work.  And quit saving all of it.
21.  Declutter and organize everything!

Okay, maybe the last one is a big task... but maybe if I write it, I will do it.

Wish me luck!  What are you working on?


  1. Wow!! That is quite a list! Best of luck getting it all done--or even most of it. I'm glad hemming Mom and Dad's curtains are first on the list!! Thank you. You have a good start on most of the things you listed--it is just finishing up--a problem we all have.....

    1. I have to organize my craftroom FIRST so that I have room to sew those! I am trying:)

  2. I'm so unorganized I can't even get a list together. It would be much longer then yours!

    1. Let's be honest, it us MUCH easier to write a list than acutally doing those things ON the list... I am trying to find some motivation!! Help me!
