Inspiration from a Fellow Blogger!

About two weeks ago I read a fellow blogger's post that hit home. Gina at The Shabby Chic Cottage opened herself up and admitted that she suffers from decorating ADD. She goes on to say that she is horrible at starting things and then not finishing them. Boy does that sound familiar!

Honestly. I think I just have all these ideas in my head and want to do them all. I tend to take on too much and then get overwhelmed with all that I have taken on. I often don't know where to start so not as much as I would have liked has gotten done.

So. Anyway. Gina challenged us to join her to complete 10 tasks in 10 days.

I didn't take the challenge at that time because we had just done Mom's Craft Night Out and my carpal tunnel had acted up. I'm better now and I am ready to go!

Gina has changed the "10 Tasks in 10 Day Challenge" to "5 Tasks in a Week." She's invited everyone who is participating to link up over at her blog on Thursdays for her "Transformation Thursday" blog party.

I'm in but since I'm highly motivated right now, I'm going to run with it and do the original 10 tasks in 10 days. I'm hoping by making a big dent in my task/project list, it will keep me motivated to keep going. After the 10 tasks, I'll drop to 5 tasks in a week. I started yesterday so next Thursday, October 29th, is my deadline for my first 10 that I've listed below. I'll post some of my progress along the way so be sure to stop back to see what I've accomplished so far!

My 10 Tasks in 10 Days List!

1. Turn the old chair into a reading chair for Allison.
2. Paint a canvas for above Allison's bed.
3. Clean out junk drawer in kitchen.
4. Paint front door.
5. Paint mirror for entryway.
6. Paint & stain table for entryway.
7. Make Allison a coat/back pack organizer for entryway.
8. Paint coat hook board for entryway.
9. Make Allison's Halloween costume.
10. Make our Christmas want/need list for my family.

Have Fun!

Your list is long like mine!

I got one thing completed TODAY, thanks to some help from my husband (turns out it was a 2-person job!). I'm really, really thrilled about it! Now I need to work on all those other unfinished projects I have. They're all big ones like yours!

Getting stuff done feels good, right?
