Porn for paper freaks

The day a new Paper Source catalog arrives is my equivalent of “nudie magazine day.”  I like to find a private spot, get comfortable, maybe light some candles and DROOL.  My fellow papercrafting freak and friend Michelle will e-mail me as soon as she gets her copy.  “Did you get the spring catalog yet?  OMG.  I want to buy EVERYTHING!”

Paper Source has figured out that I am a complete paper and stamping junkie.  They know I am helpless against their e-mails.  Beautifully designed e-mails with the newest stamps provocatively posed on my computer screen.  What can I say?  This stuff floats my boat.

Everyone has their thing.  For me nothing relieves stress or gives me a sense of creative accomplishment quite like crafting.  Scrapbooking, card making, making jewelry, creating gifts. . .it just makes me happy.  And when I share what I make with others, it makes them happy. That makes me even happier.

I got some new stamps in the mail today, so of course I had to try them out.  I put some of the cards I made into one of my online albums.  Check them out if you are so inclined.  Making those cards provided at least an hour of delicious homework avoidance, which seems to be when I am most creative.

  1. I got the same catalog (I almost said magazine — I sort of thing of catalogs of this quality as magazines. They require the same level of attention when reading them…)

    I actually said to Phil — maybe we should have a vow renewal, just so I can order some of these invites. Not even kidding. He vetoed the idea.
