Less Is More Challenge & It Often Is!

June 15, 2012 at 5:47 pm 12 comments

Finally it’s Friday. This is a quick stab at the ‘Less is More’ challenge blog. It was a one layer challenge with a flourish. Argghh- no embellishments really, and no extra layers!! A bit of sponging, an Indigo Blu stamp and a sentiment (seriously dodgily over stamped!!) from Tiny Tags (Stampin’Up!) and that’s ot. Simple, and certainly ‘less’.

Less is more often is. I love that kids relish the ‘less’ when they’re playing with things- they’ll be more creative with tiny objects. Today Will and I made some sooped-up binoculars from toilet rolls. He loved putting brads and buttons on & relished choosing papers. He was so happy with it.

Less is more would really help with housework. Fewer toys, clothes and stuff would mean less clearing away, less dust and less work. I could definitely do with less food. Wonder if I can encourage my kids to join me?!!- oh and I have cleared out a load of my craft stuff- so I’m surely heading in the right direction!

Better go and clear up my craft room. The aftermath of preparing some magazine work has left the remains of what looks like a mini explosion has happened! See you when I’ve located the desk! (and probably returned to this card and added a few more things!!) xx

    Less is more. So true and yet so hard to do sometimes. I’m with you on going less on everything but the food part. I love good food too much!!! Cool card too…less is more on this card!!!

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog… I’m not stamping much these days, but I look at all of your beautiful creations and get inspired to dust off the stampy stuff!
