How amazing collections come about


Usually
my most successful collections
come about
when I have a
themed obsession

There is normally
only 1 during
5 month cycle

This cycle
determines
all my decisions
grocery shopping
gifts
color choices
supplies
ebay searches
research
applied techniques
contacts
music
philosophy
hair color
brooches


Now not only do I have a main obsession
but
TWO
side obsessions


Main obsession


18th century goodness

shells
iridescence
powder
irregular scallops
Grey hair
glass trinkets
black glossy ink
curled feathers
curls
spirals

I'm terribly depressed
these obsessions
have to wait
and
possibly
disappear forever

My education
is
slowly
killing me

These are pretty amazing obsessions! Thank you for visiting me blog - yours is lovely :)

april said...

awwwww noooooo! just put those obsessions on a dusty shelf at the back of your brain. I think that you could combine all three obsessions to make something so fabulous! But you may have to forget about it and let it incubate a wee bit longer. they'll still be waiting for you when school's out!

Love the whole concept of living by Obsessions... And these are truly marvelous! Bet when schools out, you'll have something even better to latch onto! Are you keeping a scrapbook for future use???
