Hmmm, sparkly things. Some days I feel like a squirrel going about my business collecting all the sparkly things I can find. I don't really have to have a use for a sparkly thing to want it. For some unexplainable reason, I'm attracted to many things but those with sparkle are my favorite. I can't help but touch them, weigh them in my hands while the shimmers off its facets and imagine all the wonderful pieces I could make, if I could only have them. Of course, the next step involves me shelling out lots of dollars so I can have the privilege of owning yet another sparkly thing. Once I own it, I take it home with me. All the new sparklies get places of honor in my collection. Maybe it sits on my jewelry desk. Maybe it goes directly into a current project. Maybe it sits on the dining room table for a few days and every time I walk by, I take it out of the bag and dream of what we can make together. I know that one day I'll pick it up and know immediately what it needs to become. That is a great moment! That is the moment I know that purchasing one more sparkly thing was not only a good idea but also my destiny.
