Have you accumulated an "unintentional collection" of one particular item? Something you find yourself buying more and more of just because you can't pass it by? Mine consists of typewriter stamps (wood mounted). I've gotten quite a collection of them, but still whenever I see a new one, I absolutely CANNOT pass it by. what is it that you just keep collecting, though you never intended to.

I can't seem to stop buying dies and punches in christmas light shapes. I also seem to have several dies in the shape of signs and billboards. And anything in a cloud shape - I even bought chipboard clouds recently and I NEVER use chipboard ... I'm not entirely certain what to do with them, lol.

DWelch!

I just saw your comment on my blog and laughed- I have quite a collection of manual typewriter stamps, TOO.

I also learned to type on a manual typewriter. I got one for Christmas when I was...very young. And with my Mom's old college typing textbook (!) - I began to teach myself to type in my bedroom.

I would KILL to still have my old typewriter! I dont even remember what happened to it...

Letter stickers. Ribbon. Book-themed paper. Neat clear stamps, which I rarely use no matter how great they are. Autumn-themed stuff, even though I do only maybe 4 autumn pages a year.

Punches, paint, buttons/brads aaaannnnnd glimmer mists. Oh and now the craze is also "washi tape". Of course I love stamps (butterflies, hearts, flowers and such).

I have an unintentional collection of border punches. I have at least 15 and I didn't buy a single one of them. It's so weird- any time I win something, it's bound to contain a border punch! I've even won the same border punch three times.

Im with you on that one. I went through a phase where I bought soooo many Prima flowers in different colors. I still have them in rubbermaid containers. I rarely use them. I need to though.

I adore flowers, but they don't qualify as a collection, because I use them up as fast as I buy them

Didn't think about it but I'm with Gelidy - anything nautical.

Plus cruise, beach, and travel stuff. Can't resist travel stuff for different countries whether I'm planning to go there or not. I might some day.

I've even got papers and embellies for places like Morocco. I'm not planning on going there. But it could happen and I'm prepared.
