I'll have to think about that some more - I'm sure I have something!

My fiance tells me that I talk in my sleep... about crafting. He says that I mutter things like "Mmmm beads". And it makes sense, because I always think of fun new projects as I'm drifting off to sleep. So I decided to keep a journal in the dresser by my bed so that I can jot down all my late-night ideas before they become swallowed up by sleep.

Sometimes I will refer to my little journal when I want to bring some of my ideas to life. And it cracks me up, because I usually have no recollection whatsoever of how I came up with these things. Sometimes it comes back to me, but there have been instances where it was like reading my thoughts for the first time.

Here's a recent example: Just today, I got out my polymer clay supplies. I had something in mind I wanted to make, but I also wanted to see what was waiting for me in my little journal. And according to my crazy, half-asleep handwriting, I thought it would be a really good idea to sculpt an angler fish. Lol, I have no idea why or how I came up with an angler fish. But now I feel obligated, just to see if it's even possible. Maybe if I'm really good, I could make slightly less hideous interpretation of an angler fish. I'll let you know how that works out. ;-)
