Blog Action Day

I've been reading about Blog Action Day.
Great time to think about how we take care of our Earth. Being from the NW, I have recycling down. A can, bottle or plastic container hasn't seen my garbage can for a few years. Heck I even drive a it. But is it enough? It got me thinking about all my consuming.........especially paper craft products. I have so much and I continue to buy a little bit of something new each month.........and I'm not even what I consider a Scrapbook Fashionista. So my goal, as simple as it may seem, is to use more of these products up before purchasing newer items. I mean they'll all look outdated in 10 yrs anyway. The generations who hopefully will enjoy them in 100+ years, could care less if I used the latest and greatest.
So enough to the excess!

Hi Kim,
I'm chiming in a few days late for Delurking Day. I always check your blog to see who you have discovered recently. I agree with you on the use-it-up post. I'm in the midst of cleaning out my craft studio and I'm dismayed and embarrassed at how much I have accumulated and not used. I like your point that it will *all* look outdated in a decade anyway, so it doesn't matter if the supplies are from this year or 5 years ago. Give us an update in a few months on your goal and I'll delurk then too!
