girlgeek101 -- i am pretty sure that for we stampers "buy less, use more" is like non-stampers' "lose weight, exercise more." LOL! But since I actually succeeded with the lose weight, exercise more one, I have high hopes that we CAN be successful in reigning in the spending by getting what we really love and then using it in fun and different ways rather than always buying the next thing that catches our eye.
The gratitude journal sounds very cool. Can't wait to see some of your watercolor work.
