Well, I just finished drawing on this little gourd bowl … leaves … and realized today is the 1st day of fall. Typical that i would choose leaves, and a gourd for that matter, to do my little bit of art for the day. The air is dry, and though rather warm, it was a beautiful day. I love having all the materials i need when the mood strikes me. I read in American Craft today that its important to know the difference between surrounding yourself with stuff and finding things that have a meaning. I continue to weed through and purge stuff, although today i reclaimed two cards of buttons that might be useful for a wee girl’s dress. Oh well, I can’t expect to cut loose of everything this time through. Most everything going in my sale is stuff i might have made something with! I look around and see there is still plenty here and the universe will always provide materials! Gratitude.
