With the success of the Fall Barn Sale behind me I’m beginning to focus on the Winter season and the upcoming Sale November 4-6. It will be our big holiday focus and I’m having a blast coming up with fun things to make. I have all this energy the weeks just after a sale and I was smart enough to use that energy to get organized. Here’s what I did…
I limited myself to 5. Just 5 bracelets, 5 ornaments, 5 scarves, whatever it is I will only make 5 of them. Sounds simple, right?
Well it really helped when I moved on to the second part…set up. I got a box for each kind of thing I want to make for the November sale, spread them all out and started to fill each one with the supplies I’d need. Since I knew I was only making 5 it was easy to grab what I needed. Bloggers note: yes I know I wrote scrapes on the above list and actually meant scraps. These things happen…you love me because I’m imperfect.
The third and most important part is this…I can walk in, grab a box and work on a project. When I run out of time, I put everything back in the box and walk out. This has freed up my world like you would not believe. I am now productive in the scant hour and a half afternoon naptime. I can work for a bit before bed. When my boys are entertained and happy on their own I can sneak away. It is a good thing. And I really needed a good thing!
