Procraftination: The September OMFG DIY UFO Challenge
v. pro·craf·ti·nat·ed, pro·craf·ti·nat·ing, pro·craf·ti·nates
To put off finishing handiwork because you’ve turned your beloved hobby into a chore.
To postpone or delay the completion of craft projects to the point of stupidity.
Are you a procraftinator? Are you haunted by U.F.O.’s (UnFinished Objects)? Does your studio or work space look like Area 51? Is your supply closet bulging like an alien probe? If so, and you’d like some company in your handcrafted misery, please join me for The September OMFG DIY UFO Challenge.
Here’s what you have to do to participate:
1. Choose a UFO from your collection to finish in the month of September. The UFO can be any craft, garden, design, cooking, or otherwise creative project that you want to be held accountable for completing at the end of the month.
2. Announce your goal in the comments section below. For example, my goal is to complete as many unfinished knitting and sewing projects as I possibly can by midnight, September 30th.
3. Finish the project.
4. Brag about your completed work in the comments section below. If you send me photos and descriptions of your Finished Objects, I will post them here on My Roman Apartment so people can compliment you wildly on your achievements. Don’t forget to add the link to your website or photo album to your comment so all your new DIY groupies can find you later!
5. Now that you are on a roll, why not do it again?
