Things I've learned about us by packing up all our crap: 1.) Our house may look neat on the surface, but move things around and the truth comes out: we are pigs, 2.) No matter how much we get rid of, we still have waaaayyyy too much stuff. Sewing new journal pages helps to clear the mind and release frustration from too much dust up the nose.
Some of these paper scraps I've had for 5 years or more--Years!! The only thing better than tossing stuff you've been hoarding is finally putting it to use! So liberating and highly recommended.
