new or re-used?

I work with a tension between the temptation of new materials and the challenge of finding new ways to use what I already have.  New materials open new doors quickly: "Ah, I can do that?" Finding a fresh approach with what's on hand is slower - but maybe more sustaining. 

And I find this his tension, whether I'm thinking about art supplies or learning a new technical skill.  I love new stuff. And  I love reappropriating, reinventing the familiar.
