I've become a collector of vintage dictionaries. Not because I particularly love dictionaries, but I do love making these pendants out of old glass watch crystals...which requires fabulous dictionary illustrations. So I pick them up at yard sales, thrift stores, antiques shops...and its very hard to throw them away. What if I discover another word that inspires me and I want to extract it from every dictionary I have? If I throw them away, I won't have them. What if I overlooked a fabulous illustration? What if I find a use for the incredible aged pages that were rejected for this project? And the arguments go on as the books pile up! Did I mention that some dictionaries are very big? They are. They take up lots of space. Have you seen the humungous ones that are literally 10 inches thick? I have a couple of them. They're actually pretty cheap to buy...because people can't find anyplace to PUT them...trust me on this! I don't really know what to do. Yes, I know, I could bite the bullet and chuck 'em....but what if....?
See my dilemma?
I am Heather...wife to Alex and stay-at-home mom of 3...all of whom have flown the coop. I'm a new empty-nester!
I'm a creative soul who makes more messes than actual art. I'm moving away from mess-making to writing, which was my first creative love. My heart's desire is to encourage moms and women of a certain age in living a fun & funky faith-filled life...I'm traveling along life's road, learning as I go...it's an incredible adventure!
