Super Awesome Paper Week
I recently had the most rocking paper week.
Before I left the house, I did what I always do and made a list of the specific papers I would be getting. Yeah, that didn’t stop me from picking up something new.
I got this beautiful silvery-grey paper with inclusions of baby’s breath. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it yet, but I’m thinking of pairing it with a silver Japanese bookcloth.
Several days later, I received a large order of Japanese Chiyogami that I had been planning for months. When the order showed up, I just wanted to lay it out on the floor and roll in it.
Please don’t repeat that.
It took me forever to settle on designs I wanted – they were all so beautiful! I would make a list of what I wanted and then change my mind the next day. I then asked my hubby to show me what he liked so I could get a male perspective. I pretty much ignored everything he told me. So much for market research.
Here’s what I finally purchased:
Most of the Chiyogami will be used for new designs in my line of Chopstick Journals. I have found some great designs of chopsticks that are a fabulous match for these papers. I should be debuting at least a couple of the designs in the fall.
