Super Awesome Paper Week

Vermont road after mud season

The road to paper...

I recently had the most rocking paper week.

It started out with a Saturday trip to Langdell Paper. I was treated to a late mud season trip, which consisted of super lumpy driving. Ah, the joys of dirt roads.

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.

Stay tuned!

Someone just chose #2 in the top row for a custom order. I’m really looking forward to working with it!

Wow! I’d want to roll on them too. How gorgeous. What fun you’ll have working with them.

Carol –

I just started work on a photo album using one of these papers. I’ll write a post about it when I’m finished.
