|an early Christmas present for a friend. Quick and easy but striking in its simplicity.|
In that vein, I have started going through stuff trying to shed stuff in my life that I don't need. Something that someone said a few weeks ago about haver's and be ers struck home. Essentially in a generation we/society have moved from being and feeling fine with the fact that we have enough to havers who will never have enough material goods. So how much do I need? Do I need to have piles of scrapbook paper and quilting cottons that I pet and faun over but that's all? My conclusion is, I bought it to use not collect, to create something neat not just to sit there. To that end I am working on whittling down materials. I did pretty good last year in the scrapbook area getting more than 800 layouts done. Now I need to do the same in the quilting area.

In the meantime, I guess I can finish off some UFO's as a good way of delving into my new goal.
