word soup

when i'm in a creative rut - or feel brain-dead at the end of the day but still want to do something - sometimes i turn to others' words to get me going again. i cut out random words from magazines, shake them up and cobble together little thoughts that i never knew were on my mind. the larger the stash of words, and the more varied the sources (try mixing stuff from the economist and the enquirer), the more interesting it gets.

OMG these are SO great...thanks for linking back to them (sorry I missed them the first time around)
I'll have to give them a try myself.

That last one really resonates with me. I love the funny ones you have too, in this and the other installments. I love the one about pancake debris, and the witchypoo one. Ah, I love them all!

Hey Aimee, That's too bad about having no time for TV, although it makes sense that you're busy. If you ask for a TV show on DVD for Christmas I would suggest Pushing Daisies as something you might like. It's whimsical and magical.

I came here from a link on some random blog and it was a picture that said 'Don't Put Off Your Happy Life' and man, I just need to paint that phrase on my ceiling! Do you have an etsy shop?
