Life of a blogger is hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat where we share stuff about ourselves outside of blogging.
OMG I used to collect lots when I was younger. Pokemon cards, journals, stamps and porcelain dolls (though I don’t know why because they scare the crap outta me).
But I don’t have any of them now. I have lots of new collections, though I don’t have many of some yet but that will change once the house is sorted & I can start collecting again 🙂
Obviously books is my main one. I can’t get rid of books, like EVER! I haven’t got a home for them yet so no picture of my loverlies.
I love collecting swag. Whenever we go on family days out to places with gift shops I always buy a bookmark/postcard to add to my collection. Along with book related ones of course! Especially signed ones if I can get my hands on them, love it. I also get magnets/key rings and stuff, any swag really.
I love mythical creatures, mainly fairies, dragons, unicorns and elves. I got a fairy ornament for my 15th birthday (I think) and fell in love with it so I got a few more. I haven’t added to my collection in years but that’ll change.
As I said above I absolutely love dragons. If I hear about a book with dragons I just HAVE to read it, as soon as possible. They’re just amazing and I recently bought a polymer clay dragon from Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat to start my new collection. I’ll hopefully be making my own and buying others to add as I go. One of my fairies also has a dragon wrapped round it too 🙂
I love doing things with my hands and cross-stitching is one of them. It takes forever sometimes but I find it relaxing and have done it for a few years now. I’ve got tonnes of cross-stitch magazines. Here’s a pic of my latest one, it’s not quite done but I can’t wait to see it completed (love tigers). This’ll be going on a pillow in my spare room as it’s done in browns/blacks 😀
Shoes, shoes, and more shoes. I love my heels! Though since having Gideon I don’t wear them as much. If I see a pretty pair in a shop window I pine and eventually give in and buy them. They have to be funky though!
I’m really bad about collecting things so no doubt I’ll have new stuff to add soon hehe.
What things do you collect?
