Happy New Year and first Challenge of 2011!

Happy New Year!


I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year celebration.  I have officially entered the "Club." You know, "the Club"  It is for members like me who stay home on New Year's night, put the kids in bed and watch Dick Clark's rockin' New Year's Eve on TV.  Watch the ball drop and go to bed.  Now there is nothing wrong with that, except, I live in Iowa which is Central time.  So needless to say, I stayed up until 11:15pm to watch the ball drop on the East coast and then I was out like a light.  What did you do last night?

With the New Year comes new resolutions.  And for many of us, the top of that list is organization.  Well, friends, you are not alone.  All of the Mega-Stores must think we need to organize our lives because all of their storage and organizational tools are on sale.  As I finalize my personal and scrapbooking resolutions for 2011, I am excited to announce Mojo Monday's.  Each Monday, we will bring you a new challenge to ignite your Mojo.  But here's the catch...you need to participate.  We want to hear from you and see what you are doing.  I have created a flickr group for everyone to post their work and spark some good ole' conversation. 

{Mojo} Monday #1 (we'll get a early jump this time) is to, you guessed it: Organize a hot spot.  Take 15 minutes, set a timer, put on your favorite tunes, grab a coke...whatever you need, but organize just ONE area of your craft room.  Don't take the whole day.  Don't make this hard.  Just one area and organize it.

Here's my 15 minutes:

{Before}                                                                                
{After}




















Good Luck and get to it!  Make sure you post to the flickr group.  We want to see what you are organizing.
