Lisa Congdon - Collections

Go in any bookstore right now, and you'll find an entire section of books starting with the title of "my year of ______" or "365 days of __________" Not sure where this trend came from, and it's been milked for all it's worth... but I have to say, I'm not totally sick of it just yet. I like compact little experiments like A J Jacobs year of living Biblically, or Dave Chameides year of producing no trash. I'm smitten with the 3191 blogs, in which 2 friends 3191 miles apart in Portlands Oregon and Maine juxtapose two portraits together each morning - one from each coast... and then again with another year of evening shots.
One I found the other day from Lisa Congdon (captain of awesome hand drawn wallpaper patterns) is this year of collections blog in which she posts a collection of something every single day. Simple photos, just collections of nice looking things. Not sure where they all come from, but I dig it.
Currently my only collection is of tshirts... and they are all over the place, as I'm gearing up for two craft fairs this weekend!
