Accountability

Sun Apr 14, 2013 2:39 pm

So....my craft area is a right mess. In an attempt to poke myself into getting the motivation to clean it, I'm going to embarrass myself by showing you all that mess.

Image

I'm going to tidy in 15 minute spurts...and then I will reveal the results of my hard work.

You may begin nagging at me to clean starting...now. (see you in 15 minutes!)

Or feel free to post things that YOU need to be held accountable for!

Nothing. I'm a neatfreak and my room is always CLEAN UND TIDY

So you're hoarding.

It's nothing to be ashamed about really. I clean my room and it gets messed up a few minutes later. I end wasting precious time.

I like this idea. The best cure for procrastination does seem to be social accountability.

HANA! CLEAN UP! CLOSE YOUR DAMN FACEBOOK AND JUST DO IT!

I got the ironing board cleaned off and put away. Stupid flat surfaces attracting everything.

Breakdown:

Get cashmere off of swift and move stool and chairs to get access, then clean floor. SWEEP. Deal with the cord tangle! Quick reorganize of shelving. Tidy serger table (only active projects, serger & doll dressform & stand should live here!). Put bobbin and flyer back onto spinning wheel. Find temporary home for the to-ply cashmere.

Go through basket of fabric? Self, you haven't looked in the basket for 6 months. Be brutal with decisions about what to keep and what goes! Anything from the days when you were smoking needs to be trashed! PERIOD!

Oh, and locate the purple wool to finish that 'footstool'. Utilize the new high temp glue gun you bought for JUST THIS PURPPOSE to fix the damned thing!

Heh, mess. I'm far more organized in my room when it's a mess.

Hell, this is the state of my side of the room at my old man's place right now.

If that was my house I'd throw you out.

Hope that motivates you.

Annnnd...I guess, since I happen to have these photos anyway, shots of my room. =u=

Honestly, the only reason it got this messy is because I was sick and had a depression down-swing. Food, clean laundry, and clean dishes were a higher priority than organizing the craft area.

Certainly looking a lot neater now, Hana. ouo

Wow, Hiroko, you have a lot of stuff!

Hoarders: Snafu Edition!

Re: Accountability

Sun Apr 14, 2013 4:41 pm

...Actually, that's really not funny at all and kind of hurtful.

I'm not a fucking hoarder. I was depressed and had other shit to do.

Cheerleading, good. Nagging, okay. Shaming, NOT OKAY.

Re: Accountability

You must be lonely in bed if you stuff it with so many plushies.


Ever tried a dog or a cat instead?

I think that was more aimed at hiroko's picture where it looks less like a mess and more like she just has a ton of stuff.

Lemme explain.

If you're a crafter, you understand the need to have lots of raw materials. Inspiration could strike at any moment, and without the raw materials and tools, you're fucked and can't do anything. What is someone who sketches without a pencil ready whenever they decide to draw? What is someone who sews without fabric to sew? What is a knitter without yarn to knit? And then there's paper...and sewing machines and pins...and needles and stitch markers...etc, etc, etc.

If you're not a crafter, you look at the volume of sheer stuff and go "wtf? Hoarder!"

It's a very sensitive point for many creative people. So if you know someone who sews, or knits, or does leatherworking or...usually it's some sort of creative pursuit...never ever use the H word.

You call that cleaning? Ugh Disgracefull, my own itch to keep things cleans is screaming at me with an urge to go and clean it up properly.

Shoo shoo *snaps fingers* get to it young lady, Or no desert for you!

Re: Accountability

Sun Apr 14, 2013 5:07 pm

It's clean as it's going to get for now. I went through the fabric basket and tossed 3/4ths of it.

Now, I'm repairing this upcycled footstool thing that Aria keeps ripping apart. Stupid low temp glue isn't very durable...

Re: Accountability

Sun Apr 14, 2013 5:11 pm

Re: Accountability

Sun Apr 14, 2013 5:12 pm

I am spent for the day, though. Blood sugar is a little low, as well. Dinner needs be made soon.

Re: Accountability
