Yard Sale-ing

We spent a good part of Saturday going to yard sales. We don't do it that often, but when we do, we're serious about it. My friend Brenda is getting out of the "art for commerce" business and is selling many of her art & craft supplies. Her yard sale was full of beads, craft show display stuff, and paper. I have a serious weakness for paper and bought all that she had.

I ended up with 2 milk crates of rolled handmade papers. These will be used in my card making and my book projects. Where will I store it you ask? I have no idea.

As she was helping me load these lovely papers in my trunk, Brenda said she had not even sorted through her best papers yet. Damn.

Handmade paper is such a luxury. I have a kit to make some I am just waiting (waiting, waiting,waiting) to get into the house for the space to try.

Those look so pretty.
