For the Love of Paper :)

For years I never looked at my sewing machine,
unless it was to sew an embellishment down to a scrapbook page.
(Sad, but true)
I was a Scrapbooker through and through.
I worked on my scrapbooks daily 
and dreamed up new layouts in my sleep.
I bought more supplies
 than I can use up in my lifetime.
My daughter used to say I owned a "store" :)

When I started sewing again,
scrapbooking took a back seat.
Now my supplies have found their way into the closet 
of my husband's office 
because fabric storage has taken over
in my craft room.

I have heard paper, pens and stickers calling me again lately.
I've seen such cute planners that were embellished
with washi tape and stickers while cruising around Pinterest
so I decided to give that a whirl.
I've been having so much fun with cute pens
stickers and washi tape purchased from Korea and China.
It's so much fun to open the packages.
The wonderful Etsy shops even include free "gifties"
in every package! 
So this gives me a bit of a paper "fix"
and still leaves me plenty of time to sew :)

I also wanted to share with you a giveaway on my 
daughter-in-law's new blog.
She is giving away a 1/2 sheet of the cutest Jamberry Nail Wraps
and all it takes to enter is to follow her new blog
 and leave a comment.
There are only a few names so far,
so the odds are in your favor to win!
Check it out HERE


  1. I love everything in your paper picture above. I make my own cards. I will check out your daughter in law's blog.

  2. I've never tried scrap booking. I didn't think I could afford that and fabric! : )

  3. I'd want every day to be a Monday if they would look like your planner!

  4. I also have a scrapbook "store". One of these days I will get it all organized and be able to sew and scrap! Love your washi tape holder!
