So, I went back through my 1997 journaling pieces last weekend, pulling out still more. I condensed them down to one paper lunch sack. I saved a few for mixed-media pieces. The rest I shredded. Steve walked over and stood watching me shred them. He said, "Wow, that's something I never thought I'd see."
Moving onto 1998 next - I'm being brutal. Sifting down to the essentials to keep.More shredding this weekend.
