Part of the reasoning behind unloading most all of the upcycle stuff... is to free me... even if it's just psychologically.... from anything that isn't part of my regular business. Mentally, I always go through the "list" of things I need to get done... and when you have a chronic illness, and perhaps only a few hours a day that you feel up to doing things... you need to focus in on doing things that are truly important to you. Things that make you feel better. For me, that is taking photographs, making jewelry, working on art, having a garden... and in the winter months... I tend to do more needlework and crochet, and make envelopes and such from recycled papers. And of course, snuggling my pup and reading good books.
Life is short. You have to do what makes you happy.
