Whoever Has the Most Paper When They Die Wins!

Whoever Has the Most Paper When They Die Wins!

If you’re a paper crafter as I am then I’m sure you can relate to the title of this post. It seems like we will go out of our way to buy paper, find a good sale, search through shelves of clearance and locate that one special piece of paper that all too often sits on a shelf for months…maybe years! A few months back I was wandering around the paper aisle of my local Hobby Lobby. I was looking at the pads of paper. There are some for boys, some for girls, some for weddings and some for pets. Some of the pads are made of chalkboard paper, some white board paper and some of burlap. I was just checking out each one thinking I could use this to make invitations or I could make this one into an art piece for some frames I got on sale for the guest room. Oh, this one is cool I could use this for my decoupage projects. Then I picked up that $20 pack of paper and I thumbed through it and I found a piece of paper that sparked a memory. I love it… its perfect… its bright and colorful and remember how when I was little and my parents got me a new View Master for my birthday! This is it… I LOVE this paper.   Then the inevitable happens. The paper ends up in my cart and then my craft room and then six months later I stumble across it when I’m cleaning up my Christmas projects and I think, what was I going to do with this?...
