I love paper – almost as much as I love beads and gemstones and fabric. I started sewing when I was about 8 – which I think I’ve mentioned in the past. I haven’t sewn in years but I still can’t walk into a fabric stroe with my quilting friends without touching most of the fabric that I past. And it’s pretty much the same with paper — espcially handmade paper! I love going to art stores which carry handmade paper — I just stand there and admire them and run my hands over the paper, feeling all the things that were used in the paper.
Alexia of ARRRT! uses lots of paper – and chipboard. She makes journals — I always admire journals — I think wouldn’t that be great? Get a journal and write down your thoughts, spend some time each day with a glass of wine or a drink of something fun and just relax and mull over the events of the day. And then reality sets in. Writing? Every day? Blecccchh! What were you thinking?????
However, for those of you who love to write in journals and actually use them, you really need to check out ARRRT! Alexia has some great things there — little card wallets that hold business cards, necklaces which are little handmade books and for the person like me who thinks about journaling — a one month journal. Give it a try! Hmmm, maybe I’ll start a journal. A glass of wine…….
