The older I become, the more I realize that going back to the way I was raised, being careful about spending money, using things in a creative way, are very important.
The idea of more and more is not success. Success is enjoying what you do have, and making good use of everyone one buys or is given.
I like to do crafts, but sometimes go for months not doing them. Quilts are a favorite useful item I make. Though I crochet a bit, draw a bit, mostly I like making useful things. The occassional fun 'character' is okay, but anything that sits around drawing dust really isn't my style. Unless it is a dust mitt.
