AnnieK said...

I just recently started following your blog...love the work you post! I also collect (too many crafty) things. The stuff I really accumulate is FABRIC, lately fat quarters. If it cute I simply can't resist buying it (or keeping old clothes because I love the fabric)!

jaust.me said...

I collect color! My daughter loves to ask me what my favorite color is. I can never answer. It changes all the time. I finally started telling her "Emma color" (her name), just to stump her. I love the color of the sky on a summer evening when you're driving home from a kids baseball game. It's the most intense blue, all shaded with orange at the bottom as the sun sets. I could go on but... So, I'm always trying to find this, and other colors to put in my house. Paper, ribbon, marbles, home decorations, fabric, flowers, etc.

Have a great day and many congratulations on reaching 500 followers!
