Organizing projects – yes, I’m an A-type crafter.

It has recently come to my attention that I have a lot on the go.

That’s a joke, actually – my close friends would say that I really don’t know how to ‘be still’ and not have anything to do. Relax? Rest? What’s that??

Usually it’s a blend of projects/commitments/appointments and necessary to-dos, but I was gathering my thoughts around my crafting projects lately and realized, whoa… when you need to make a list of crafting projects – that’s a sign.To Do

I’m not complaining – I’m so excited to get to EVERY. SINGLE. THING. on this list. But I think I just realized some prioritization is in order.

Like, for example, the knitting project I’m working on. It’s a gift. FOR. THIS. WEEKEND. Gah. And I recently just realized that it will also need time to be blocked. Like a few days time. Which pushes up my deadline. Guess what I’ll be doing tonight. (Knit. Purl. SSK. Repeat.)

Do you have a lot of crafting projects on the go? How do you organize yourself when you do? I’d love your tips and suggestions.

I’ve been using my iPhone reminders list lately to organize my thoughts. I mean, I always, always, always have it handy. I also use it to organize projects IĀ want to do as well. Which is also a growing list!

What are you working on right now? What project are you excited to get finished?

Am I alone in my making lists of lists??

    That’s is exactly what I do! I have always been a list person. It used to be school work and then college assignments. Now it’s fun craft projects! I use my iPhone also for both ideas and things I NEED to finish šŸ™‚ and I of course have lists at work, but not fun craft projects šŸ˜‰

    I use lists for some things, but I also have fallen in love with “project boxes.” My least favorite thing to do is cutting out fabric. So, I devote one morning a month just to cutting the fabric, lining and interfacing for two – three projects. Each one, with their respective notions goes into a project box.

    In the four project boxes I have, are a man’s white dress shirt, a man’s black dress shirt, an apron, and a denim skirt. These boxes are stacked in the order I want to complete them in.

    Everything is listed in a notebook, with separate lists for future projects. Writing it down is soothing to me, for some reason. šŸ™‚

        It really helps me feel in control, and tidy. Especially since I have a folding cutting table. Once I’m finished with the monthly cutting session – it gets folded up and rolled into a closet! šŸ™‚
