I also have an almost embarrassing number of choices when it comes to creative diversions. Here too I have done much purging this year but I am never without a few choices depending on the time I have or my mood.
Perhaps there are times when too many choices can be paralyzing. I have noticed a much more relaxed response to getting dressed each day after adopting the capsule wardrobe idea this fall (I believe I have 35 items in my closet at this point so close but not quite the 33 you can find here). And when it come to knitting or sewing or writing, I often spend more time going through my choices and run out of time to actually make anything. But sometimes the choosing is just what my creative spirit needs.
This morning I am celebrating choices. I am pulling out just a few items and spending a bit of time thinking and planning. I will head to my knitting group at church where I hope to do a bit of knitting but also trace the pattern for a quilt block. And this last week I have been choosing items for my 2015 one little word album and setting up my 2015 planner. These choices bring so much joy - well worth the celebration.
I am celebrating with Ruth and friends today.
