Who’s willing to share photos of you stash? This isn’t to say My stash is bigger than you stash or My stash is neater than your stash. You may have a small or a large stash . . it isn’t about size! The plan is to share a picture of the stash now and then I’m going to seriously clean and organize my stash and show a new picture on January 1, 2010. Then sometime toward the end of 2010, we’ll do this again and see if anyone can detect a difference in the stash size (smaller I hope!).
We all operate differently but I’ve found that if I commit verbally either to friends or fellow bloggers that I’m going to do something, then I’m a lot more likely to do it. Design Wall Monday has given me the impetus to be sure there’s something new on my design wall, even if it’s just a few more blocks added to what was there last week.
Here’s my plan:
- Take a picture of my stash today. Posted below. I’m also going to print it and tape it up where I have to see it every day.
- Between now and January 1, 2010, I’m going to clean it and organize it. Post it here. Then I’m going to print it and tape it below the disorganized stash picture.
- All through 2010 I’m going to use work hard (really hard) to use the stash and at the end of 2010, I’m going to post another picture (and post it here) and then compare the three.
Want to join me? Here’s my first picture. It’s looked worse; maybe there was a time when it looked better. I will look better for sure by the end of 2010.
So . . no prepping. No cleaning. No organizing. Got snap a photo of your stash now, as it looks the minute you’re reading this post. Share it with us in the Mr. Linky box. If you feel the need to clean and organize, do that and add another photo on January 1. Then get busy and make lots of quilts or other projects so we can see smaller stashes at the end of 2010.
