      Should I finish what I am working on or go on to the next challenge. This month my priority is to do the roound robin. Peggy I am glad you are in front of me because you know you I am going to asik about one zillion or trillion questions.

      I think when my roommate payes her part of the trade of writing papers for helping organize my craft room that will make it much easier. I will have lot of room on my desk and tables to start some and move on when I get stuck.

      Other suggestions appreciation.

        Personally, I don't like to have things unfinished, but sometimes I will leave a page to marinate while I start on another. BUT, I always go back and finish it.

            My pages are ALWAYS marinating. But they always get done 99.9% of the time. Then there are those LO's that I HATE…So I will redo them by taking them apart…Here is an example of before and after…

                  Gah, I can't let a page sit and go on to the next. I do mine one at a time. SO, somteimes it takes FORVER to get that page done. Maybe if I changed my ways I could get more done.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                    When I am doing design team work I always start all 4 at once!!!
                    I seldom work on one at time. I usually have at least two going.
                    If I am stuck on one the others will talk to me. :O

                      That's me too Angelica. But have to say that I started a mini the other day, then I started an exploding box and I have a tag 3/4 done and that is so unlike me. I feel so utterly unfocused having these three projects sitting around. They all have deadlines and I can't figure out which one I should really be focusing on!

                        Both are great LOs Lisa, but the 2nd one is AWESOME!!

                            The only bad thing is if you are like me and you don't glue as you go- you then have all that glueing to do! LOL

                              Kathy, you're actually following Debbie, but feel free to ask if you have any questions…

                              @Lisa G that Plan A is stunning, Plan B is dropped my jaw!!!!!!!!!!!

                              Oh, as to the original question: I've leaed that unless I have a real commitment, I will put things aside to marinate if they're not going anywhere. I've finished most of them (and am glad for the marination), a few are languishing 🙁 (
                              If there is a commitment or if I like what I'm doing, I tend to focus on that project until it's done.

                                Or, if it's not all glued down and someone picks it up to look at–BAM!!! The entire page falls apart. I still haven't put it back together.
