I have had a flat wicker basket full of newspaper pages on my living room floor for at least 6 months. It is full of really great information I've culled out and meant to reread, do something with, etc.
Okay, now I don't have it anymore!
I picked up all the paper at once, didn't even look to see what treasure I was holding lest I be tempted to hang on LOL and tossed it all in the kitchen trash!! I feel so free, and have already reappropriated the basket to catch mittens and hats as we come in the door.
Did I mention I saw a tiny spider lurking in the paper before I tossed it - see what happens when I let stuff pile up unabated - it comes alive! And did you ever hear that you will never be more than three feet from a spider of some variety in your entire life??! Don't know if that's true but it makes sense now LOL
So here's a freeing thought - what if we took all those unfinished stamp projects we have had tucked away forever and just tossed them???! Oh I can hear the gasping already ;o) But we would gain space and the freedom to create new stuff in the style and colors we like right now - now THAT'S potential! If you can't bear to toss them, how about passing all the fun little scraps and background paper to another stamper or an art-loving neighbor kid who can either use them or toss them guilt-free?
Okay, I'm ducking now in case the rotten tomatoes start flying >;o)
