I successfully located an entire corner in my FEMA disaster zone craft room! Doing so netted me 4 UFO's and a pile of things that are "oh, I meant to...". 
Unfortunately I have a pretty wicked back problem, and can only do so much at a time.  I will be working on it some more today, and as a reward, I will be doing some of the "oh, I meant to" projects.  They are small and easy to do while sitting still on the heating pad for a few hours.

Welcome aboard everyone!

I love how much enthusiasm there is at the beginning of the year (the hard part, as with all resolutions, is to keep the momentum going...)

For those who are going cold-turkey on new craft supplies - Good Luck! 

I like the ideas of setting mini-goals for yourself each month as dulcet is doing.  It can give achievable (measurable) results that will work towards all-year goals.

I just moved, over Christmas (never ever ever move during the holiday season!), so my stash is in boxes everywhere, and my craft space is being used as staging for unpacking.  So my resolution for January is to get it unpacked and destashed!  I have a bunch of UFOs I'm sure I'll find as I dig thru the piles of stuff, and I'm definitely going to send out packages of fabric, yarn and other things out to people who want it! My other goal for this year is to start being active on Craftster again Cheesy 

Pics to come later.

If anything I need to organize. Mr. Bean is going work at home in a couple of weeks and half of the craft room will be his office. No more encroaching on his space.  Cry

My yarn goal is to get my stash down to one rubber maid bin. Yes, I said one. My stash is not my fault, it's inherited.

Oh, no, CLM! That's awful. IME, most people are really understanding about that, though. We almost all have days where our houses are just not presentable. I say almost because I know some real neat freaks whose homes look curated 24/7.  Tongue

While my DS finished lunch, I cleared a big box of never-used specialty dishes out of my curio cabinet. After lunch, he emptied my box of painting supplies onto the floor (no mess as he didn't open anything) while I cleared two boxes of books off of my shelves and bagged up two grocery bags full of paper and plastic for recycling, and another small bag of trash.  Cheesy Feels so good!

Very pretty, Kookaloo. Now how are you going to use it? Looks like it would make a very feminine scarf if you added some more blocks to the opposing sides.

Eventually it will be part of a blanket. My friend and I have challenged ourselves to crochet a square a day to make blankets for the hospice who looked after her brother in his final days.

And the prize for first picture goes to KooKaloo_Starr!  Looking Good!

TendsTowardsChaos - Sometimes I find that unexpectedly emptied boxes (like the ones I accidentally upend ... all the time) provide a good opportunity to sort and weed as I put them back together.  I've done a lot of unplanned mini-destashing that way.

I have to put in my two cents... Wink  Every bit of stash I use, even if it's just the tiny end ball of a skein of yarn is still that much less I have in the house and that much less that I didn't spend money on or add to stash.

I've learned that even a bit by bit (like you did with the recycling, while your son was busy with something else) adds up to a lot done.  It's freeing to not have so much stuff.
