Isn't keeping order in the house with kids tough? If you have or had children you probably had times when you wanted to gather up every toy and paper airplane and toss it into the trash.
Back in Nov or Dec this phrase popped into my head: "Are we being good stewards of our belongs?" It was so easy for me to see all the stuff that belonged to the kids that needs to go and some old things that I didn't know what to do with....but that was as far as it went....UNTIL
I didn't need to look to hard to find that I've been holding up tons of energy in stored fabric. Perfectly good, fun, and quality fabrics....and here they sit...and sit...and sit....like a dam to the flow of energy around me.
I'm quick to tell people, "What you own, owns you" and this stuff is owning me. The one day projects or fabrics I might need.......really? I already have favorites that I have not had time to get to....
How much time and energy was spent gathering all of this? Then folding it, organizing it.... Sure, there was the time I made things with these fabrics and I did use quiet a bit of what I bought....but there is always left overs and pieces I don't exactly love...if you know what I mean.
The co-workers have been busy playing in the little bit of snow we have had.
Here's a bit of proof it doesn't take much to have a good time and be happy :)
