Quick Report: Some Random Projects

Leave a comment

At best this report is “I did a few things”. Basically I only opted for a few smaller projects this week because it’s what I wanted to work on. While I’m strong enough physically to take on more intense projects again this week my brain just wasn’t in it. At least I…

  • …cleaned up a small area of my bedroom which including throwing out a pair of shoes that I can’t wear anymore. The sides are out of shape so wearing them really wasn’t safe. Luckily I still have a pair of dress shoes and I’m thinking I bought them because the older shoes were out of shape but never had a chance to toss them and then forgot the whole thing. Don’t tell me you didn’t collect clutter the same way. I have a bit more room now and probably the best I can do without tossing stuff I actually need out. Like my bed. Not much of a bedroom without a bed.
  • …reorganized my art space a bit. Again, just a corner of it and if it wasn’t for the third project this would be all about organizing corners. Not that it matters because I reorganize my art space every few months, or at least that’s how it feels like. I’m not even completely sure I maximized the area so in a few months I may be reporting on that project again. In fact I know I want to do some reorganizing with my various paper I use for writing and drawing once I go into one of the drawer organizing stages, which I hope to do soon if not next week.
  • …started to add to my list of Saturday Night Showcase postings that I have in a spreadsheet. There are times I swear I used something for the feature on my other website where I promote fan and indie projects as well as the current official or licensed YouTube channels that have popped up. (I like to support the official release, but I haven’t done enough indie and fan works in a while. Maybe after Christmas I’ll go hunting.) I might have gotten further, though I don’t know if I would have finished, if not for WordPress going down during the whole thing and some other issues I was having on my end. I’m going to keep working on that so I can find things for my site. It’s still organizing so technically it still counts.

So I accomplished…most of what I wanted yesterday. It may not be much but the bedroom looks a bit clearer, I finally got rid of the unwearable (safely if you want to walk in them) shoes, and the stuff related to other projects. It’s still a victory and victories are what keep you working on a project. I just need to get back to making a few major victories now that I’m able to.

A Few Smaller Projects

1 Comment

Over the past few weeks my projects have been about setting up the digital side of my art corner. I did do a bit more of that this week but I also did a few smaller projects this week as well. Nothing really exciting but it’s still stuff that needed to be done, and with a book report coming next week I wanted something to discuss. That’s the secret tagline of this site. “I have an article to write, I need to clean something!”

So that’s what I did. Here’s a short list of this week’s projects.

Quick Report: Getting The Artputer Going

1 Comment

I’m going to be devoting the next week or so to getting the “Artputer” fully active so I can make all kinds of cool stuff. It qualifies as a Clutter project because it involves me getting my work area going and some things I’ll have to do with the rest of the project days I have available. This week my project was getting it to minimum comic making status for my weekly comic. That included:

The Art Corner Clean-Up: First Strike

Leave a comment

If you’ve been here long enough you may remember my art corner, the spot I set up to my physical and digital drawing. While not too bad in comparison I just had the urge to clean this spot up a bit. The problem is I had a party to go to this week and thus didn’t have much time to do a big project. That’s on the top shelf there. The bottom shelf are Transformers comics from the IDW run that I don’t have a box for, the box containing my other Transformers comics already full from other companies runs. I like Transformers, obviously.

I didn’t even really complete this project; it would be more accurate to say I moved the clutter somewhere else, but I do a little cleaning and I’ll be finishing this project hopefully over the week. So what’s involved with it?

Quick Re-Projects

Old picture. It’s what I had of the spot.

With my re-connection surgery looming I wanted to get a few more quick projects out of my hair. I’ve been told this is outpatient (although if I have to at least stay overnight I won’t be surprised) but I don’t know how long the recovery will be. I’m hopeful it will be shorter since I’m in better condition than I was the first time. But we aren’t here to discuss my colon, we’re talking clutter.

I had a few smaller projects I wanted to do and I had time to do more than one. I could have spent that on a larger project but I don’t want to get caught in something that will take more time than I have and really one project just kind of led to another. They’re five short project that I need to get done, but they’re also “re-visits” of previous projects that I either didn’t get a chance to finish, needed a slight “refresh”, or just needed to be done.

Organizing The Desk Top

4 Comments

Sorry for missing last week. I didn’t get anything done. Too many doctors appointments. This week I managed to get something done.

The top of my desk is a mess. I like the stuff on there, but it’s all cluttered on there and not well-organized. So that was my challenge for this week. This turned out to be easier than I thought it would be. I came up with a decent system and while I ended up keeping everything on there, it was still a good system for me.

Cleaning under my desk

Leave a comment

It’s a crying shame when “temporary” takes years to find a permanent home. Take this bunch of stuff just underneath my desk. Some of this junk has been under there for years. You may notice leftover bits of our favorite cardboard box. There’s technically enough room for my feet to go under there, but I keep kicking stuff and I’ve been used to keeping one foot outside of the under the desk. It’s time to change this.

That’s a start.
