At the beginning of this month I set out to FINISH 31 Unfinished Projects from my huge on-going list. Read all about the list and the reasons why I am doing this here: http://hydrangeahippo.com/31-days-of-unfinished-projects/

My hope is that the sharing of my journey inspires you to get some things done around your house, in your craft space, and just to tidy up your life. It feels really good to get things done. Plus, it is nice to enjoy the fruits of your labor. And, at the end of the process, I hope to be a happier person….with a much tidier house! Will you join me on this journey!?

The biggest part of this process is accountability.

I have pledged to post a video of all the things I finished (or didn't finish) each Friday, here on my blog, to hold myself accountable to you. This week, since this is the 3rd day of May, I have 6  finished projects to share plus a few “partially finished projects”. I plan to go out of town for National Scrapbook Day this weekend so this gets me up to the 6th in terms of keeping track! :

#12 – Patch and paint holes in laundry room – we've patched the holes

#23 – Replace 2 dead plants front yard – pulled out the dead plants

#30 Remove plant holders from garden, spray paint, and install in Katie’s Room for stuffed animals – removed them, now need to paint them

#44 Take down the drying rack in laundry room (we dont use) – DONE!

#58 Add shelves in master closet and put luggage on them – DONE!

#59 More drawers in master closet built-ins (about $75 at Ikea) – DONE!

#65 Plant seeds in flower pots, front yard – DONE!

#85 Remove broken stepping stones in front yard – DONE!
