A. Attachments and attitudes...
I decided to skip April Fool's as the obvious one... I was noticing that "things" that I have become ridiculously overwhelming at times, but I don't want to get rid of them, because they MIGHT be important. Or they have some personal memory 'attached'.
Spring is a time for cleaning. I finally found my craft room was becoming an irritant, rather than a place to create, and so after Husband built me several shelves, I had several false starts cleaning, and asked Mom to help with my 'purging'... I now have a craft room that doesn't freak me out to go into.
Why was this? Mostly because, oh, I bet those newspapers would be useful for decoupage. (But... I don't DO decoupage anymore.) Oh, that bunch of boxes will hold something, sometime! (If they are just holding one another, why bother? It isn't like I never get boxes in the house...) Oh, those jars would make the cutest little project. (Yeah... Almost 30 or more dust covered, tiny jars that I forgot the project that I was even going to make with them? WHY???)
So, I feel quite a bit lighter this spring! Just adjusting my attitude, and releasing my attachments! (But I am hanging on to the blind cleaner, ha ha!)
Oh, and another A. This is Arbor Week in Oregon!
