About Me

My photo
I love Jesus. I love my family. I love photography. I love books. I love thinking. Probably in that order. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful daughters, a house, and a camera. I enjoy spending time talking to my husband, playing with my girls, redecorating my house and shooting things with my camera. In my spare time, I sleep.

I did it...alternately titled "My non-frugal decision"

Last night I did it.  I threw them all in the trash.  Every-single-one.  (That I could find...)

After 5 years of collecting them and reusing them and regathering them and finding them all over the house and saving them and collecting more of them...I finally decided it wasn't worth it.  They all went in the trash.  And it was hard for me to do something so wasteful...but at the same time it felt so good. 

And then today I spent a whopping $1.20 for three brand new boxes.

 Let the collecting begin again.  :)

Sometimes you just have to throw things out, but have you ever melted their shavings between two pieces of wax paper? Cut into hearts or stars, they look beautiful against the light of a window, (Can you tell I was an art teachers back in the dark ages?)

Continuous creation has to start somewhere, being creative about it must be a good place to begin.
