Have you ever had so many ideas you don’t know where to start?
Ideas come from everywhere when your a crafter. Some ideas come because you have a need or you have kids your keeping busy but at the end of the day we crafters just have a want/need to create something fun and new. One of the problem we face is that there are so many idea sources out there. Pinterest, Facebook, other crafters, conversations with family and friends, flipping through a magazine, or your watching a home improvement show. You hit overload and want to do everything; which is why you have 87 boards on Pinterest…LOL
What happens when you decide on your new projects? You go out and purchase supplies and those supplies sit there because another fabulous idea pops in your head and you go get more supplies. What’s a crafter to do?!
Sometimes you just need to step away, clear your head and then go back, look at your pile and sort through it and decide what needs to get done first. During craft show season is the worst….you want to make and take so many things but what will consumers buy? What season are you in, and what do you do first?
I think I need to take a page from my daughters book and start making a to do list; her to do list is more of a bullet journal that she decided she wanted to make to help get herself organized but I don’t see that as helpful for myself. I think I need to start working on those things I have started first and then move onto the projects I bought all those supplies for (which is alot…lol).
I’d love to hear about your struggles with crafting organization and tips on how you keep yourself on track. What do you do during craft show season to keep yourself organized and on track?
