Welcome One & All to The 28 Days of Organization Challenge!

Those of you who have been on this adventure with me multiple times before, already know what to do! For those of you that are just joining us for this latest round, here's what we'll be attempting...

Challenge Game Plan

- Being that there are 28 days in February, I have listed 28 categories of organization in the list found below. Pick a Day (any day, at anytime) and complete that particular series of tasks. *Each player please copy & paste the list within the thread.

- Please set up an Album for this challenge (via your Gallery), label it & link it here.

- Each time you complete a task, take a photo to share, link it here & cross that particular day or task off of your list.

- Please Note! - You may work on ANY task, ANY day you choose. This means, depending on how you work, you can choose to either tackle the 'big & timeconsuming' or 'little & super simple' projects first, or choose to save them for last, depending on your schedule & plans for the month.

Let's inspire, motivate & cheer one another on! And most important, let's get organized & Have Some Fun in the process!

So, how 'bout it? Are you ready? If so, let's go!

- I recently moved back to the states this past summer.

- In turn, I currently do not have a dedicated space for all of my supplies. In a very real sense, they are 'homeless'.

- I have a large walk-in storage closet upstairs that I am currently utilizing as a 'scrap space'.

- Walking up & down the stairs & having an 'overflow' of supplies in boxes out in the garage is not really working for me!

Oh, this sounds neat; I've recently redone my room (moved a computer desk in a few weeks ago, added a magnetic dry erase board this week, with a new work table coming soon); a lot of my stuff will remain organized as it was but I do have a few things I need to address.

I finished my Round 3 project for the Swirlydoos Ultimate Design Challenge.



Now I have to run down and pick up my cricut cartridges from the shop where I used to work and take them to my new shop, and while I'm at it, pick up some embellishments to finish off a couple of projects. THEN, maybe I can clean up some of this mess!

Hopefully I can get started on this tomorrow. We've had a busy day of basketball pictures, basketball games and shopping. I've been up since 6:30 this morning and I have to work an overnight shift at work tonight. So I will soon be catching a nap.

Oh my. You ladies should see the mess I have in the works.

In order to get truly organized, I had to make a bigger mess that I already had. If that makes sense.

- I finally transfered all of my larger 12x12 albums into the livingroom & onto the shelves.

- I still have to find the thinner, unused albums & later today, I'll be bringing in the smaller, mini albums.

- I still need to label my albums. I was originally going to stamp them. However, for the time being, I am just going to put sticker labels on them, until I purchase the metal ring tags that I actually want. Tip - That way I could always change out the tags, if need be!

I spent all day yesterday scrapbooking. Spent all day today doing housework. Tomorrow I have to go to work. Friday my youngest son has a check-up and scans at his oncologist. Saturday morning is a basketball game and I have to work Saturday night. Sigh.

I just printed out the list. I'm going to try to start on something now.

- Well, after running out of label tape, I FINALLY finished labeling all of my albums.

- Working on sorting my patterned paper for my next task. Basically, when I moved this summer, it was packed & mixed up by the movers. Hopefully, it's not out of order too badly.

- I'll be sure to take some completion pics, once I actually complete a couple of more tasks this week!

Wide awake & preparing for some major organizing today.

Moving furniture around is part of the plan.

I'm pretty sure I'll be exhausted by days end!

I went back to work full time, so I have no time to do much else - including get my scrap room organized.

I'm going to SAVE this forum though, and when I'm done at the end of this semester, I'm going to DO this. It's a great plan, and I need it!

Darn! I wish I had seen this back in the beginning of February. I've been organizing my scraproom for the past 3 weeks and I feel that when I'm done with one area and try to move to a second area, the first area is a mess again! I seriously need help! LOL

I think Angie was the only one who actually got her space clean.

I haven't given up hope quite yet. Still working on my scrapbooking closet, slowly but surely.

Right now, I have everything out in the hallway, so that I can tackle some labeling, sorting & organization.

I'm here..again!! Life has been crazy..imagine that!!! We found out that my youngest son's cancer is back, so he had surgery, spent 4 days in the hospital..we went to New York..had his birthday party at the beginning of the month....CRAZY MONTH!! WHEW!!

My kids go on Spring Break starting Thursday and I HOPE to get LOTS of spring cleaning done around here.

Xander has to start chemo treatments again in June, so the rest of the year will be spent doing that...so I have to get my house in order now. I hope to finish up my scrapbook room too!!

Thanks Kelly and Shelly!!

I started spring cleaning today. Got the dining room, bathroom, hallway, laundry room and my bedroom done. Of course those are the 'easy' rooms to clean. Still have kitchen, both boys bedrooms, living room and the rest of my scrapbook room. Scrapbook room won't take long and neither will the living room...it's the kids rooms and the kitchen that I'm dreading. Might even be able to get living room done tonight.
