Alright! Made it through the bottom of the basket. I confess I did chuck a wad of creations into the trash. The were impenetrably tangled with a thousand pieces of junk. Hoping the storm will not blow over this one. I can stand fairly firm on this issue (with dd2, usually) but recently after I threw away some ancient creations, she sobbed "But I worked so hard on those...." Ouch.
Yes, she did work very hard on those flattened, crud-crusted projects. I felt miserable and guilty and didn't tell her about the pile of paintings I sorted through and recycled. Oops. She can be so.... prolific.... I am concerned we could be buried under it all.
