I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but whenever I go on an extended trip somewhere, I make a concerted effort to come home with paper.
These paper trips would not be possible without the help of one thing – The Tube.
The Tube has been very good to me. I can store paper both inside the tube and wrapped around the outside of it. Not only does the tube protect my paper, but it often validates my decision to buy more paper than is necessary. There’s always room for one more sheet!
My husband does not like the tube. It’s the paper wrapped on the outside of the tube that makes him nervous. He thinks that tube is a four-letter word. When he sees The Tube, he realizes that there will be at least one occasion during our travels when I will have a paper-related freak out. I just read that sentence to him and he laughed.
He knows it’s true.
I acquired the tube during a trip to Papers! in Albuquerque, NM. I liked that they branded the tube with their logo.
It wasn’t until last year that I decided to actively collect stickers from places that I purchased paper. I’m going for a luggage label vibe.
The Kozo Arts label bums me out since they are no longer in business.
So that’s the grand tour. I have a total of three labels. For now. All hail The Tube!
