Thank you, Debbie!!

I can't believe I am the winner! I REALLY want to thank Debbie of Virtually Organized for the Procrastination Challenge. I won her October Challenge with the reorganizing and decluttering of my craft room! This really was a huge undertakinn for me. I love to craft! And I always think I have to have every material/craft need under the sun! lol My craft room had gotten so out of control that we affectionately called it the "crap" room!!! and that isn't not a word I am fond of at all!!!! When I got started, I didn't know if I could finish this. It got overwhelming at times.... but I had taken the challenge. I am not a young woman anymore! I am an OLD lady! lol But, I had the before pics. I had started to post them and that accountability along with the encouragement of Debbie, Marcia and Laura and MANY others who were working on projects REALLY helped and make me accountable. I was kind of hoping and expecting a little help from my #1 granddaughter but she is a teen now and stays pretty busy! lol... so I tackled it and at times had to walk away! But got thru it and that is the important thing! SO, what is my prize you say? The 2009 Entertainment Book!!!! I love them!! And we had not gotten one this year so I am so delighted!!! We will use it that is for sure! It does help save money and also for dining it gets you to try out new places and you never know the discoveries you might make! :) Thank you, Debbie, very much! I will certainly be taking part in more challenges, not for the prizes (although they are the frosting on the cake - and I do love frosting) but because each new project, each new challenge gets me closer to the goal and the feeling when you have accomplished that goal is tremendous! I still have a few procrastination projects to tackle!! (Alright! A BUNCH of projects!)

PS When the girls were over yesterday when we went to the movie, I showed them the craft room. When we came in the house, #1 said, "Wow, gram, you really cleaned up the kitchen too!" lol. Now what does THAT tell you!? WAY too much clutter!

Please check out their websites thru the links above! I really am appreciative of all of them and each of the friends that I have made along this decluttering, organizating, STOP procrastinating journey!!!
