my heart belongs to paper



last night i took down my hanging heartstrings. no regrets in hanging them up so early. and thanks to melissa, i have a new mini heart garland to hang up! absolutely love it. i think it will be going on my bulletin board. which is exploding at the moment. (my presidential wish is to get it cleaned off sooner than later. i think it's some sort of deep-seeded issue that i cannot just up and change it already. that or pure laziness.) speaking of projects, what this town lacks in perfect sofas they make up for in pretty paperie shops. which is okay by me. i dropped by every craft store in the vicinity to get in on the super sweet sales yesterday. thanks to dan who corralled my little monkey in the meantime. when it comes to crafts, i cut coupons. hooray for 40% off. i stocked up on pretty paper for future projects and the upcoming collection of mini diaries. i piled up on the floral paper seen here that so many of you requested. my new favorites would have to be the retro schoolhouse paperie from october afternoon and the umbrella design from my mind's eye. i can barely keep up (or catch my breath) with so many fun papers swinging through the door. can't wait to get new goodies in the shop. praying for productivity.

am off to the post office to mail out some birthday love.
have a wonderful tuesday.

What a surprise when I opened up my google reader and saw something familiar that I'd seen somewhere before. Yes, that's right, little hearts going through my sewing machine. So glad you are enjoying them Marta. I did a little shopping myself yesterday too. Those umbrella's will definately make cute mini diaries.

I just bought a piece of the umbrella paper myself! Such cute finds.

Just got the wonderful thank you notes from the giveaway. I love them! I know exactly how they'll be used... one for someone who did something nice for me who works in the fishing industry and the other for a friend who is a "dirt man" who is bringing me a load of garden dirt. Just perfect! LOL

Well look at that. I just took a break from some paper crafting to read your blog! In love with paper? Yes. Raising my hand very high over here.

I love pretty paper, too.
Unfortunately scrapbooking is not a big deal in Germany... so all that pretty paper is rare here or it is ridiculously expensive. Need to stock up the next time I'll be in the states. =)
Love the pretty paper you got, Marta.

Pretty paper sets my heart all aflutter! I love what you've got here. Yesterday, I won some lovely stationery from Naturally Nina! Can't wait to start writing some pretty little letters.

Happy Tuesday to you, Marta!
