Our love of paper

I don't normally blog unless I post a card but here goes.

Paper. We spend money buying it. Someone gives it to us a gift or because they are purging. It catches our eye and we crave it. Maybe I can use it down the road. Oh! It's on sale. We buy pads of the thin stuff that has 180 sheets. I used to but I haven't done that for years and years but I still have a lot of that paper. I got rid of a bunch but I really like these sheets. I will use them in the future. Ladies! The future never comes and we have more and more paper.

One of my daughters works with a lady that a few years ago had a scrapbook store. She is purging. I don't know her but she knows I use paper. Today my daughter brought me for the third time inches and inches of thin paper. Lots of it from those pads, some stuff from CTMH, all thin. Some of it is really cute. Will I ever use it? NO

Sandy has taught us to use really nice paper. I placed a call this evening to my grandsons wife. She teaches at an elementary school. I told her the paper was printed on one side and the other side was white, perfect to use to draw on. Yes, she would love to have it. It is one thing to give away paper that was given to you and another that you laid out cash for. That makes you think twice.

The thin paper that is solid I am cutting to line cards. I already have a lot cut and folded but I will do some more.

I am biting the bullet. The paper is going. I say that and I sit and think maybe I should go through it and pull the stuff I really like. Nope! It is going. I will use my nice paper of which I have more than enough. I will not in the future buy thin paper. Maybe in the future I will buy some nice paper again but for now I am shopping from my own store.

I bet there are plenty of you that can relate
