Creative Juices

I'm finding myself in a mood to create something. In typical Jaye fashion, I cannot seem to land on one thing, so I'm mentally spinning around, pointing, hoping that at some point I'll stop spinning and the right project will be what I'm pointing at. What I REALLY want to do is take doll photos, but the weather is not one bit conducive to that right now, since it's winter, and cold, and who wants to crawl around on the ground in the snow, getting themselves and their dolls all wet and gross? And indoor photos, well... my apartment is in no state at the moment to serve as a backdrop. Too bad "cleaning" doesn't fall under the category of "creative."

Early to rise...

In about 20 minutes, my sister-in-law will be picking me up to take me to the airport. I'm off to Winnipeg for a whirlwind trip to visit a couple of friends, one last Biotherm Hurrah before one of them leaves for school in Toronto. I've been up for almost two hours now. One of those hours was completely unnecessary. I have this paranoia about promptness, especially when it comes to air travel. I'm early for everything at the best of times, but it reaches ridiculous levels when I'm flying. I should probably look at this weird internal alarm clock as a good thing, but it will likely be hard to remember that when the fatigue sets in at around 2 p.m.

Excess in All Things

It would seem that I am completely incapable of practicing moderation. I have too much crap in all facets of my life. Too much PartyLite. Too many toys. Too many CDs. And too much bloody makeup. And even though I have too much makeup, and rarely use any, much less actually use any of it completely, I continue to buy more. And why? Well, this time it's because MAC's latest collection is Hello Kitty. That's right, I bought a lip gloss and nail polish solely because of the adorable Hello Kitty motif on the packaging. Granted, these products will see actual use, particularly the gloss. But good grief. This must be why I have no money.

So, just for the simple sake of finding out how this all works, I will post a picture of my latest acquisition. This Charmkins cel, I believe, was used in an advertisement for the Whippoorwill Flower Mill. (Don't toys from the 80s have wonderful names?) I often buy things for weird reasons. One might think I bought this because I collect Charmkins. One would be correct in that assumption. However, what sold me on it was the expression on the face of Whippoorwill himself, the cute little blue bird riding on a flower petal along with Petal Pink Puppy. Life in Charmworld is truly whimsical.

A blog? Really???

You see, I need a blog like I need a hole in the head. But for quite some time now, I've thought it might be fun to have a website to post pictures from my various collections. This seems like a delightfully lazy way to do that, not to mention a way to ramble and vent about things nobody but me really cares about. Watch for sporadic, half-baked entries that shall appear according to my personal whimsy.
