Collect only very small things. Store them in a mint tin or small box.
I selected my favorites from my mom's vast mini collection along with a few small objects I found. I wanted to use only her miniatures but I thought I better put a little effort into the assignment too.
I used a box I've toted around with me since I was a kid. It has a unicorn on the top. As a little girl I was obsessed with horses, pegasus, and unicorns.
Then I added the miniatures.
Finally, I arranged them for my museum.

My dream is to walk around the world. A smallish backpack, all essentials neatly in place. A camera. A notebook. A traveling paint set. A hat. Good shoes. I don't want to trudge up insane mountains or through hill and dale. But now I walk everywhere in the city. Any city. You see everything you need for a lifetime. -Maira Kalman
