Way back here I read a book on wabi-sabi. I loved it! I still love it. And I'm still rereading many parts of it. More than any of the numerous decluttering, get you house in order, simplify your life self help books I have read this one has truly made me reconsider most of the areas of our home. My motivation to clean up and clear out extends far beyond the endless fabric stash I keep going on about. There are oodles of books, more dishes than we'll ever need, and paper. Paper, paper everywhere in fact...school papers, financial papers, newspapers....recipe cards, magazine clippings, and assorted memorabilia. Most I'm finding can be filed or tossed but some I thought would be fun to save for a scrapbook. Elaborate visions of elegantly decorated pages and Spencerian scripted reminisces floated through my mind for only the briefest of moments for which I am most grateful! Seriously do I need another hobby? More supplies to store? And would such a creation be even slightly wabi-sabiesque? NO!!!! But per change these composition books could do the trick.
So with a quick gathering of leftover supplies and a bit of arts and craft guesswork. . . . .
I was able to create this transformation in about the time it took the glue gun to heat up!
Quick as a wink our visit to the Boston Museums was "documented."
As was our 2011 miniature golf tournament, our first annual Christmas in July celebration,
and girls day out at the movies!
