W.O.W. - Can I Do it in Only One Week? : )

It's time!

Do you have an item on your to-do list that never gets done because of all the other stuff you have going on? Something that is driving you crazy in your house or something with your work that you'd love to see done? Why don't you join me for the Within One Week Challenge, otherwise known as W.O.W.?

If you haven't played before, I hope you'll check out the past posts and then come back over and join in. You'll be surprised how much fun it is to tackle these things with support.

My project is going to be a toughie. I will really need your cheering to get this done.

Right before school started, we decided it was time to move Oldest Princess into her own room. The girls have always shared a room which has been a great thing, but recently we decided we wanted to give them the experience of having their own space. They both love it, and I love having quality time with them one on one when I tuck them in at night. PLUS, we now know which one has been keeping the room messy. : ) Remember my little "distwacted" girl?

The problem is, I had to give up my guest/craft/office space to make it happen. If guests come to visit, Oldest Princess has already been informed she'll have to bunk up with Sissy and give her room to the guests, but I needed to find a home for all of my "stuff."

We decided we could set up the area behind our couch in the family room as a mini craft/office area for me. So we moved all the stuff into the Family Room and there it remains. Take a look:

I've been procrastinating because I have no idea how I'm going to organize all of this stuff. My goal is to work on it 15 minutes at a time and see what happens by next week. This needs to be a "no cost" project, so I need to use what I've got. It will be interesting to see how it all comes together. I can't wait to have that spot organized and usable.

Your Turn!

If you blog, write a post and link up here about your goal for the week. We'll all stop by and cheer you on throughout the week.

If you don't have a blog, leave a comment and we'll cheer you on from here.

Next Wednesday, stop back by and read how I did. You'll have a chance to tell us all how your week went. We'll celebrate whatever you were able to accomplish, even if it wasn't perfect, and I'll draw one winner for coffee on me.

I do hope you'll play along! I've switched to MckLinky for our links. I think you'll find it much easier to use. Let me know if you have questions! : )
