Show Tunes

Well, posting about show tunes running through my head has disasterous results! For the past couple of days, I've had the lyrics from Cats running through my head (it's not even one of my favorite shows...) and now, Into the Woods.

I'm going to try to get this sickness (Showtunolalia - the need for show tunes to run through one's head incessantly throughout the day) to inspire me. So, tonight after work, whatever song/show is running through my head will be my starting point for a new bracelet or necklace... Can you imagine the choker that could come out of Sweeney Todd? The possibilities with Mabel Normand (Mack & Mabel) glitz? Or the carnival atmosphere from Carousel? The pointillism of Sunday in the Park - letting the colors of the beads merge into a new vision....

Do you think anyone would get it if my jewelry had names that evoke the shows that inspired me?

6 random things about me... well, most things about me a rather random. 1. Carvel Ice Cream cake is my new favorite food (I hadn't had this since I was a child -- but lately, it's calling my name!). 2. There's always a showtune in my head (much to the chagrin of those around me). 3. I've had two of the BEST vacations ever! Costa Rica and Scandinavia. 4. I'm always working on some craft project - and there are atleast 2 projects that aren't complete. 5. The Olympics thrill me! 6. I still consider myself as being from Connecticut even though I've lived in Pennsylvania for more than a decade.

I'm tagging:
