As I sat organizing my fabrics and notions this morning, I came to realize that I am the crazy bag lady of fabric collecting. I have more materials to work with than I really do need at this stage of the game... but you know what? Collecting makes me happy and I have just come to this realization. I like to go to the fabric store and score a good deal. I love to get those rad vintage buttons at the consignment shop. If it's cool and in my price range, it's mine!
This brings me to my current task at hand... Organizing it all. Sitting in my variations on yoga stances, I am finding myself getting creative juices flowing just from the sheer act of clearing my clutter. Given the time to myself ( yes, chores can sometimes be "me time"), I am given the opportunity to ponder creative direction and just meditate on my goals (past organizing that is). Today, if you asked me what I recommended for peace of mind? I'd say "Clean out a drawer".
