The spring cleaning continues as I use my hoarding tendencies as a way to jump start my creativity for this week’s Let’s Play video and link party! I have all these paper badges that I bought to make a couple of travel albums for each of my kids. Some of the trips were a decade ago and I still haven’t made the albums.
Reality check…I’m not going to make them. So I have challenged myself to Use it or Lose It! Whatever I don’t use will have to be donated or if not donation worthy, trashed. Crime! Crime! Crime! I’m motivated to use them up.
I’m adding them to the journal I started in last week’s Let’s Play video.The super challenge here was I had multiples of most of them. That got me to take some risks, to try a variety of ways to use them that I would not do if I was treating them as precious or saved for that “perfect” project.
In the video, you’ll see where I struggled to let go and play, where my inner hoarder was the loudest and how that one little sentence of Use it or Lose it came to my rescue!
