Do I Really Need all of this Paper?





The answer is no….as if it is that simple!  I have a few blogging buddies out there that know what I mean. :)  And this isn’t all of it….I have an obsession with paper…I love the colors, textures, patterns.

Here is some more…



Here are some of my 8x8 and 6x6 pads…

I have gone through it again, and came up with this pile for  purging…


I just can’t get rid of my October Afternoon, or Crate Paper, or any other line I adore.

I picked up another line today that I have been dodging, but it finally called my name.

It is by We R Memories and it is called “Farmers Market” What is so cool, is it came with it’s own storage sleeve!  And all of this was just 14.99 I thought that was pretty good for the pack below.

And I can put it on a shelf and see what it is…

Beautiful soft tones, not something I would have liked a few years ago…this is the full pack, a box of PL type cards and a 6x6 pad.

I am hoping to make some items similar to these:




               (all of these images of projects came from Scrapbook.com)

So for now, I have a LOT of paper…maybe I can wallpaper a room with it! lol  And this doesn’t even touch the holiday stash!  Oh well…there are worse addictions….right?

Just found this today on Pinterest….


                                                  LOVE IT!

I thought I would share a photo of Bailey…she is all grown now ( about 16 pounds).  We had her trimmed up as she grows hair in the oddest places…like half of her back and on her thighs, the very top of her head…she looks like she has a Mohawk.…yeah…but we love her!

Get after it there girlfriend! If you find your graphics it's so easy to just start and keep on going! Or invite your friend from MN to come and help you...I think there is still an alphabe banner to be done...Smile...

Erica of Golden Egg Vintage said...

YES, there are waaaay worse addictions! Embrace your love of paper! Just commit to using some of it now and then. Ha!
I found a really sweet smaller size of scrap book paper at Tuesday Morning the other day. There are sheets with Ball jars, Cows and Strawberries...love it!
Bailey is adorable!
Erica :)

~Damita's Pretty Wrap~ said...

Yes! The answer is yes you do! Lol :) haha...I guess I'm a bad influence! Bailey looks so cute! happy sweet day! xo Holly

LBP said...

We certainly seem to be enablers because I think you need all that paper and probably more! I hoard paper too!

Diane Mars said...

Well a collection of paper is a lot better then other things very easy to store.... your dog is darling. Hugs, Diane

You talk about it like there is a problem "collecting" paper. In organizing and sorting through my craft room in preparation for moving, I found lots of things I forgot I had! I have sold and given away 1/2 of what I had and I still have a ton. For now, I have lost my desire to shop for supplies....for the time being...LOL! Enjoy your paper...and use it. For a long time, I couldn't cut into any of the October Afternoon or Crate...now I use it all the time and love it!

Musings from Kim K. said...

I agree. There are indeed a lot worse additions than collecting paper. Have fun crafting. Bailey has grown up sooo much!

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49


Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:
