It's the last day of August and for me that means the last day of summer. Boo-hoo! How did summer slip by so quickly? I am not ready to give up my flip-flops...not yet anyway. But autumn is beautiful in this part of the country, so I will look forward to the trees putting on their spectacular show of color in the coming months.
I have been wanting to get in and attack my studio for quite a while, so I think I will start on that today. I keep putting it off because I am not the best when it comes to making decisions of what to get rid of and what to keep....I WANT IT ALL! A lot of it boils down to the guilt I feel when I see how much excess stuff I have accumulated and not used. Then when I finally decide to part with something, it makes me feel as if I am throwing away hard earned money. I feel so compelled to make use of everything I have ever bought. I was brought up on that old adage, "Waste not, want not." Ali wrote about it in this post and I was amazed by all the comments written by people who feel the same way. If nothing else, it was comforting to know that I am not the only one who feels the way I do.
