Blessing To Others

Hello Everyone! 

     I'm recovering from a bad cold that started right after Christmas, took me through New Year and into this week to get better. Can you believe we are already into the second week of January?! The Christmas tree came down a week ago and the rooms look larger and a bit bare without decorations. Truth be told, the less cluttered look is appealing and has me thinking about going on another decluttering mission to see what can be donated or given away. You know, the things that are cluttering up our lives can be a blessing to others when we just let them go. I'm working that as my mantra (Be a Blessing to Others by Letting GO) this year, getting rid of the excess and appreciating the simpler things in life.  
     Instead of bringing more projects into my home I plan to concentrate on some of the UFO's (Un-Finished Objects). Yes, it is time to sort through it all and see what is worth working on and what can go! I know that strikes terror into the heart of crafters everywhere and for many years I haven't been able to do it, but this is the year! I'm giving myself permission to Not Finish Objects if I've lost interest in it or just plain don't like it anymore. How about that? Pretty Bold isn't it? Why waste time on something that doesn't bring joy to your heart? Maybe I'll post photos of some of these things and you can let me know if YOU want them. LOL!  That's pretty funny considering readership on this blog. 
     Hope you will bless others by cleaning out, clearing up and donating your items to those who will enjoy them!
Have a blessed day!

I definitely think you should post pics so we can see if we want something unless it is a quilt and then you can just send it to me :) seeing as how I don't have one made by you!
