A friend once told me that my color was collage, that collages and scrapbooking and quilted patches reminded her of me. I have to say, not having a consistently favorite color that assessment isn’t far off.
In February 2009 I decided to start an idea book, a thing I had fiddled with in college as an advertising student. It was valuable, but it never felt right. I hate to admit it but I’ve never finished an idea book, and most have been turned into compost by now. I let myself let go of this one go a little, forgiving things I thought were “mistakes”. I’m a perfectionist and not having something come out exactly how I saw it in my head is hard. I can’t say I love every page, but I love everything that I put in. These are some of my favorite pages. Now, nearly September 2011 I’ve almost finished – only 10 pages left. I’ll finish it up and start the new one on my 25th birthday.
