end of the week exfoliation: scrapbooking supplies


After taking a quick glance around the studio, I found my object(s) for this week’s exfoliation. In college, I had illusions of grandeur as a stationary hobbiest (pretty sure that is not a word but I’ll stick with it). Within the span of two weeks I amassed a small treasure trove of stationary supplies. I enjoyed the pastime for a few months, and a handful of people received my handmade notes.

But since that time I have not made any stationary in Chicago. At all. That means I haven’t made cards in a year and a half. I have kept the box of supplies around “just in case” I need to make some cards. But c’mon, really? Just in case “I need to” make some cards? How many times have I bought adorable cards at Two Sided down the street? Enough said.

So the next move was finding a worthy (and willing) recipient for this stationary hobbiest’s bounty. Initially my dear part-time lady, Gertie, was disinterested in the stash. But once she caught a glimpse of some baby pink heart embossed paper, she was hooked.

    I still have and use my stationary when I need to write a thank you note. Does this mean that now I can’t get more ūüôā

    You know, I just started buying decorative rolls/stationary and bookbinder’s paper to decoupage and do other crafts. And I’m not a crafter.:-) But I saw this great post on “Design*Sponge” blog: http://www.designspongeonline.com/2009/07/paper-scrap-recycling.html . I decided to spend 2 hours last Sunday and use those papers–I covered 20 pencils and 2 magazine holders. It cheered up my home office big time and I felt a little ‘crafty’.;-)
    –Also, saw this too from another blogger–she could have done it w/ paper & not fabric: http://mintagehome.blogspot.com/2009/04/craft-lab-zine-table-redo.html
    –and from “The Inspired Room”: http://theinspiredroom.net/2008/03/12/style-tips-paper-everybodys-doing-it/
