Green Pepper Press Challenge Squeeze



Seems like I'm always squeezing things in at the last possible minute. I like to challenge myself, so I want to try to do all of the monthly challenges that Michelle Ward throws out there. This month's challenge was to admit to crushes (obsessions) that we have.

Since I do like lists, I'll list some of my current obsessions here:
  • beads
  • off-loom bead weaving
  • labradorite
  • paper (all kinds)
  • collage and assemblage
  • pens
  • journaling
  • books
  • creativity
  • cemeteries
  • Elvis
  • the eccentric and the odd
  • outsider art
  • Art
  • lists
  • road trips
  • the Northwest
  • vintage road maps
  • learning
Today's quotation comes from the sculptor Henry Moore: The creative habit is like a drug. The particular obsession changes, but the excitement, the thrill of your creation lasts.

I share many of the same obsessions, too... But, I might add Andy Warhol & Banksy, as well... =:)

GREAT quote! I'm with you on the vintage road maps -- they really tell a story, don't they?
