When I bought my first Trollbead I had no idea I was going to become a Collector of Trollbeads. I naively thought I'd buy one bracelet, maybe two (one silver and one leather) and enough beads for both with a few to change them over on occasion.

Two years and many hundreds of beads and quite a few bracelets (& necklaces) later my collecting looks a little crazy to most "normal" people; after all there's only a certain amount of beads and bracelets you can wear at any given point.
I have since had the pleasure of connecting with lots of other Trollbead Collectors and on the rare occasion we get to meet up in person the "Troll Talk" is such a pleasure!
Question for today's blog post...
Do you have any collecting habits that have grown far beyond your original intentions?
That's it for today, thanks for visiting and please feel free to say hi in the comments!

I once decided to blog a whole weekend of this with the help of a couple of Guest Authors so if you ever want to take a peak into this crazy world I've created a list of links as a bonus which will open up in different tabs for your reading pleasure.
I have to say the amount that was bought was not a typical weekend of collecting: this was something that we'd all been saving up for especially... just in case you thought yesterday's post on Budgeting was an understatement.
Go make a cuppa, put your feet up and be prepared to enter the world of Trollbead Collectors!
