What are my signatures? I've figured out a few habits of mine that have held pretty consistently over the years.
- Wearing lots of rings. The exact number varies, because sometimes I lose a ring that didn't fit very well. It's currently 9 rings. All of my rings are silver and free of stones except my wedding set, and I wear them all, all the time. I wear them on six of my fingers, four on one hand, two on the other.
-Only choosing 'novelty' earrings. I do have some normal earrings, because people give them to me, but I'll never pick out a pair of earring because they are nice and look pretty. In my collection I have paper clips, safety pins, forks, zipper pulls, spoon handles from actual spoons, bumble bees, robots, nesting dolls, origami birds (those are what I'm wearing in the photo, although there's no close-up shots)...and while I do break out the normal earrings on occasion, I prefer my forks.
- Writing with colorful pens. There's these Pilot G-2 pens that are very practical and come in all sorts of colors. I use them for just about all my handwriting, from written letters to grading papers to writing in my planner to making grocery lists for Angel. I currently have lime green, purple, turquoise, and a light blue. At some point I decided to stop reaching for any old black pen when I needed to write something down and use a colorful one instead--now these are the pens I keep with me and automatically use.
- Short hair. At this point, I can't even picture myself with genuinely long hair. I toy with the idea of growing out my hair periodically but hair that's actually past my shoulders is LONG for me. Right now I'm considering going back to a long pixie but I haven't actually made the cut decision yet.
-Tying a sash around my waist in a big bow. You've probably seen this on the blog dozens of times. I have three sashes I made myself in different colors. When I get a sewing machine again, I will doubtless make more.
What are some of your 'signature' habits or styles that have become a part of you?
