I purchased a new straw broom, and it is being put to good use! I have spent the last week emptying out my craft/school room, purging, cleaning and re-organizing. What a sigh of relief when I look around and all papers are filed, bins are tidy and labeled and I know where everything is. It is also a time of re-discovering items long tucked away and out of sight. A beautiful skein of homespun wool yarn ready for knitting a treasure. A new set of watercolor paints and paper waiting to create a a story. It feels fresh and ready to begin.
