I am trying to not get caught up with the sentimental value of things that I don't need any more. I'm trying to go a bit faster and not act like a hoarder.

And of course, you can ink, doodle, distress or otherwise decorate your circles any way you like. Have fun!
And a smaller version, simpler but still with the same appeal:
