One of the things I love most about crafting and blogging is this very idea: finding more enjoyment in the things you make and see and do than in the things you buy.
How absolutely true... putting your heart into a unique, hand-made piece is worth so much more than forking out $ for a mass-produced item.
There is so much that we can do to open up our hearts, to expand our awareness and appreciation of what many people think of as the "little and nonessential things" in our life, by just using what we have and creating with our hands. Thank you so much for the beauty and inspiration and affirmation you bring to my life.
Oh, I quite agree. I wish more people felt the same way!! Or at least THOUGHT about their consumer habits.
wow, thanks for featuring me! :)
I am going to have to make a tote bag with the consume less quote...it is so true!
Too true! If only the next generation saw it that way too. Then maybe people would not be in so much debt.
Great motto! I have another one always in my mind: "CONSUME LESS, CREATE MORE!"
