I am a project girl.
I love to work with my hands, give handmade gifts to friends and family, and keep my mind and fingers busy.
And that means I get a lot of "big ideas". And I go a little crazy at the craft store. And my great ideas don't always turn out be great realities. Which brings me to the minimalism truth of the day:
If something you buy doesn't work out the way you planned, it's okay to move on.
Did you hear that, friend? It's okay to move on.
Your time is valuable, your space is valuable, and your sanity is valuable. Continuing to work on a project that just isn't going to work out the way you want can be a waste of time, and downright discouraging. So, sometimes, it's okay to just get rid of the materials and move on.
If you try to learn to knit, then find out that you actually can't stand knitting, it's okay to find a friend who does love knitting to bless with your yarn stash.
