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

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

is
slowly
killing me

Weekend full of fashion


sshot-2008-10-12-[16-06-09] by you.

I went to the De Young museum and listened to
Candace Kling
she talked about
the historyof manipulating
fabric
and
ribbons
which consists of
pleats
folds
rushing
gathering
bows
flowers
and
in her case
candy and chocolate
ribbon techniques





The next room over was filled with
New Zealand
weaving techniques
that really excited me








I then went to an Eco friendly fashion
show/vendor event
These were my favorites:
