Tackle It Tuesday – Week 3

Tackle it Tuesday

My Dining Room Table

Accountability – wht an incredible tool! If I hadn’t had the accountability of Tackle It Tuesday there is no way I would have tackled my scrapbooking disaster that covers my dining room table this week. I have procrastinated for months about cleaning it up, and this week would have been one more excuse.

But no – I had you ladies there, and I couldn’t let you down. So I did it! I tackled and conquered.

One more disaster spot tackled one step closer to the sanity of an organized house. (I will always have projects to do I know – but my goal for the next few months is to restore to order what I have let fall apart due to my blogging habit.)

And – I am happy to report that the play room AND, most importantly, my kitchen table/office are still in good order! Yippee!

So here is my project – the dining room table where I had allowed my scrapbooking to creep up from my basement scrapping area. When I started blogging, I left the stuff on the table, collecting clutter. I would use the area to make cards, but I haven’t done any pages since March. (If I had wanted to scrap, I would have had to clean it up – there was no room to work!)

Now everything is returned to the basement, waiting for me to get my house in order and then I can get back to scrapbooking at least a little bit.
