I'm still alive and kicking!

I woke on Monday morning and declared this week "Organization Week". That means, no able mabeling for me. Bummer, but I really need to get a handle on this household, although I realize it will be short lived. :)

The winter duds need to be washed and put away (except for one set of mittens and a hat for each kid. Those will get put in a tote and placed in the camper. When you camp at 10,000 feet, it tends to be chilly in the mornings and evenings.).

Spring/summer wardrobes to go thru and place in closets.

The camper needs cleaning out and made ready for camping season.

The basement is a royal disaster.

The list goes on and on...

I have collapsed, exhausted, into bed each night with the house just as messy as it was last week. Nothing like very little visual progress but yet I know that I've been plugging away slowly but surely each day.

I still have a stack of fabric in the corner of my living room (don't ask) that I keep staring at, not sure what to do with. Obviously I'll make things out of it :) but how to organize it in the meantime? Right now I don't have a permanent craft room so all my crud is stored in my bedroom. Do I buy more totes for the fabric? Do I use temporary open shelves and stack it all on there? Help! What do I do?

String up a line in your living room and put your fabric on display!!
