Unfinished...or awaiting inspiration?

I don't know about anyone else out there in the blogosphere, but I always NEVER set projects aside that are not finished. I think the very idea that there was a half finished embroidery project from 8 years ago would keep me awake at night. But, for those sorry slackers that do have "unfinished" projects in their closets, I decided to begin a monthly motivator which I like to refer to as "the unfinished project closet". Now, like I said, I do not have "unfinished" projects, but I may have one or two projects that are..."awaiting inspiration". Yes, I get that I have deluded myself into thinking that it was not laziness, but lack of creative energy that put the project on hold, in a less than finished state, but alas, it makes me feel better, so that's what I'm calling it.
Usually, I will post a "before" picture at the beginning of the month, and then an "after" picture at the end of the month to serve as proof that I did, in fact, get my lazy rear in gear. However, this month has no "Before" picture, because it has to do with a digital project. This month, I commit to get my family calendar DONE. I know what you're thinking...gee, committing to get a calendar in January seems a little late doesn't it? Well, no. In fact, I'm pretty sure that nobody in my extended family even misses having a calendar in January. They don't do anything during that month anyway, right? Alright, alright, well in my defense, I have only known that I would be in charge of this year's calendar for 2+ years. I mean, work with me people! I have also been really super lazy busy lately.
Eventually, I may turn this into a contest, where people can submit their unfinished project goal, and they'll win some sort of prize if they succeed, but for now, since only about 3 people read my blog, and one is my husband, it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense.
So, there you have first commitment to get something DONE! I'll let you know how it goes. Until then, I challenge you to pull out that crocheted "potholder" and turn it into the scarf you originally intended it to be!

The only time I get something done is when you make me! So I think this is a fantastic idea! Love yer guts!
