Simple Living

Henry David Thoreau, says: "Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself."
Though I don't agree that Nature is innocent, she has a wicked temper when we damage what she has made, I do believe in living simply.

Living simply means different things to different people for me it means living with less stuff, eating plain foods and spending money on things I need, (most of the time anyway), not want. Right now I am in the middle of a purge.

I have accumulated a lot of stuff related to paper crafts but my interest has moved past it to more solid mediums like cloth and clay (air-dry not the other stuff). So I am packing it up into garbage bags and getting it out of the house. Yeah, I feel a little guilty about that but honestly, I need it gone and that is the easiest way to do it. Some stuff I send on to charity bins but a lot of it is of no interest to them.

That is why I had a yard sale at the end of June. A lot of the stuff got sold but there is still a lot left. I did give all my scrapbook papers to a neighbour as she does scrapbooking but I still have too much stuff. I need to empty out my living space I am getting claustrophobic with all this stuff.

I will eventually trash some of the more expensive items but there are only a few of them and I may need them. See it is hard! I have a long-arm stapler and a few other things for bookmaking, if you are interested add a comment with your email & I'll get in touch with you.
