Some of you know that I started a fun project awhile ago. After cleaning out my parents home, I agreed to take all of my mom’s collectable spoons. My mom picked one up on every trip she went on with my dad and I am sure that once people knew she was collecting them, friends and family started giving them to her as gifts as well.
I decided to take all of them. I know right? What was I thinking? I have seen that some people have made mobiles with them and I thought that maybe I could gift them or make some myself.
I decided to challenge myself to get back into working on a creative project. I researched on Pinterest and then went out to a few charity shops looking for toppers for my new creations.
I was thoroughly enjoying working on my new project until…….I wasn’t.
Can you relate to that? Have you ever started a project only to get bored, lose interest, feel deflated and just unable to continue for whatever reason?
I made six wind chimes and I love all of them and I loved making them but I lost interest. I had high expectations that gifting these to family members would help heal some misunderstandings, however, it didn’t quite turn out that way. Yes, I felt deflated and no longer inspired to continue.
So, the project ended up just sitting on the dining room table for weeks and weeks, maybe over a month. Ugh!! And…..then…… this week I decided to challenge myself to get back to it. I just finished the sixth one which I will gift to another neighbour. I really have enjoyed working on these wind chimes so I will gift them to friends and neighbours who I know will appreciate them.
What about you? Do you have a lot of unfinished projects lying around? Are you going to make a plan to finish them or do you just look at them and think…..”someday” I will get around to it and finish it. When you look at your unfinished projects……..How do they make you feel? Do you want to finish them?
Remember: Unfinished projects = Clutter
