.......can you tell by this photo that I'm a bead freak?!! A few years ago, I was REALLY bead-greedy, and started collecting pounds of any size/color beads. Now I'm not AS greedy, and am wanting/needing more smaller (like Japanese seed) beads. Anybody out there want to trade me seed beads for a pkg. of these mixed babies??!!! Or, maybe the smaller bead fetish will move over for something else eventually.......... I've been through frantic bouts of collecting: papers; handmade papers; vintage buttons; vintage costume jewelry/parts; old laces/doilies; old damaged quilts to make pillows and purses out of; fabric/hand-dyed fabrics; yarns-hand-dyed yarns; dyed wool rovings to felt with.........the list is endless. Are all mixed media artists this weird?! At least we're having fun! Stay tuned...

OH MY Gosh Phyllis,
We are too much alike for our own good!!!!! I was reading your post and it is almost like I wrote it about myself. To-night I was looking for something and came across a package of freezer paper sheets I had bought ages ago to make labels for my quilts. Package never opened!!!!! I really needed them eh?!! I tend to go on tangents too and buy, buy, buy.
As soon as you get rid of something you will want it.... I KNOW!!!
