A cowboy for Seth (made lovingly by Katelin)
"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful?"
-William Morris, 1834-1896
After Saturday's battle with the box of kids crafts and school projects, I walked away. The box went back into the closet, and I went on with my day.
When I opened it again Monday morning I asked myself two simple questions - Is it useful? Is it beautiful?
I knew the answer. I dumped the guilt, but kept the projects -- sorting and filing them to make them accessible. My kids have been engulfed in them for the last two days.
And while they were busy, I began another battle with my closet... I am slowly making progress.
