It's a Contest Baby!

I am excitedly "collecting" items for my (first eva) contest prize. Bring on the entries, I will draw names after the contest closes Feb.29. If you are really stuck on ideas here's one—and I might add that this is very embarassing for me and I am very glad I do not have a photo of it—when I was about 7 I collected eraser shavings. Seriously. Not a highlight of my youth, but I blame it on a particularly non-attentive second grade teacher. She was not very engaging. To put a positive spin on it I will call it my deconstructionist period. Since I don't have a photo of that very early collection I will leave you with an image from Brita Hansen's crayfish collection.



Please note: I (almost absolutely) guarantee there will be no eraser shavings in your prize (probably definitely.)

Heya, Just read about your contest. Here's my entry: http://mellowbeing.com/blog/2008/02/button-collection.php

thanks for setting this up. I had a fun time making something creative with all these buttons (that didn't involved sewing ;).

I am trying to simplify my life. But, I do have a collection of vintage hankies. The kinds with prints of fruit, or dogs and cats or flowers!

When I was a kid I collected bells. I liked the way they sounded. My brother collected keys and rocks (big rocks).

Now I collect cookie cutters and Tea Pots.
