As interpreted by me: it's like your own little stage in which you are the scene and set designer, the writer of the story, and the creator of the characters, without having to deal with the egos and idiosyncrasies of thespians. What more could you ask for in living out your dream to hold the next Oscar?
This creative process was always fun for me as a child. I think I remember doing it with houses and dolls on a shoe box level early on in life. Designing little rooms and make-shift furniture out of everyday items was a meaningful way to extend my ideas of re-purposing and reusing far before it was fashionable and needed as a gift to the globe. Building little vignettes was out right a childhood enjoyment.
A recent visit back to my old room at my Mom's house revived this idea, and my 2008 Diorama was born. I titled this little vignette "Be"...because I think it reflects all the quirky, odd, vintage...stuff I like. As always, there is a lot going on in this make believe world. One 'drive by' look at this and you will certainly miss something. In each little box or area are lots of great finds...including some great words for thought. Five dioramas in a diorama...all representing a person and how they should....be (once again my belief in "more" is always better with "more"). Upon asking the family for their review...my husband thinks the little wifey may be slipping something into her morning coffee, and my lovely offspring thinks I've slipped to the 'other side'....I would agree 'slipping' is involved, but let's just let it....be.
