45 hatched obsessions…

joybound, aka "Miles", pencil, 2 3/8" x 2 3/8"

Obsessions” is the name of one of Miles’ blogs; she has five others.  I actually had another avatar of her in my files without realizing it was the same person, so I may be back down to 99…  Her other blogs are:

I originally came across her ‘365 days of shopping’ blog because of some stellar photography featuring herself modelling different fashion looks requested by her followers- quite a unique service, and expertly executed.  Feel free to browse her channels!

This is portrait 45 of 100.
