I have some quirks that can be a real wet blanket. My mother and I used to love to go look at model homes or open houses. We had no intention of moving but it appealed to our inner voyeur. We loved to see how other people were living.
We would walk around the house and say where we would put what furniture, notate who would get what room and comment on different things about the house. It was great fun... ...but then I got my quirk.
I would look at the large mudroom entrance and think what a waste of space. I see cathedral ceilings and wonder who the hell was willing to pay to heat and cool it. I'd eyeball enormous western facing windows and pity the fool that had to deal with it. I'd scoff at enormous sprawling bathrooms. I'd peer into long deep set cabinets and feel sorry for whoever tried to store stuff "way back there."
That quirk has practical elements to it even though I still have no intention to move. It shows I'm in touch with reality. But some of this reality-based practicality is just stupid, especially as it pertains to crafting.
Would I make a card like that? No way! Why? Because that's the Butterfly That Ate Manhattan! That thing is bigger than the mailbox! That thing could take you out!!! It isn't proportional. I can enjoy looking at it, but I couldn't make it. Yet, think about it... Proportional sized butterflies would be too small to make an impact on this card. And it's art so you "get" that this depicts a butterfly filled garden, not some B-horror movie. So what I need to do, is get the heck over it.
The Fine Print: Butterfly that ate Manhattan punch by Martha, other than that I have no clue. Someone told me that was an OCD tendency but I'm not sure I buy it since I lack other OCD traits like calling it CDO because that is in correct alphabetical order.
