I'm a paper lover..

I heard something sad in the bookstore the other day. A man came in and asked the owner if she sold any stationery. She apologized and said that she didn't carry stationery anymore because no one buys it. Everyone just emails.

I guess the era of the personal handwritten letter is gone forever (yes, I realize this is old news). Kinda sad huh?

I love paper: wrapping paper, note cards, thank-you cards, scrapbooking paper, invitations, etc...

And I love, love, love the newish LP stationery line. I'm hoping I can incorporate some of the cute things into Miss S's 4th birthday party in a few months.

Yep, I miss getting a cute little envelope in the mail with a note from a friend. I always had way more stationery than I could ever use. Still that way with wrapping paper and scrapbooking paper (haven't touched most of the crafty stuff in 3+ years). I confess, I'm a lover of paper. Remember those little 2-fold papers that you would just stick together with the little seal? I thought they were the greatest. *sigh*

Well my book is getting intense, so I'm off to read before bed. Think I'll be a Kindle user anytime soon? Doubt it...

Nighty-night!

PS - We are 3 for 3 for rainy days in September thus far. The drought is over!!! YAY. We'll all have to wait and see if my lawn comes back from the dead.

Ok - WHOA - I just tried to do a strikethrough and I posted and EVERYTHING on my blog was struckthrough. That was scary. Llama - I did something wrong!

You are not alone! I love paper too!

I enjoy giving gifts from the heart, especially something I create. My wife has a box of hand made cards, decorations, etc. from me.

I love the amazing things you can do with paper (gorgeous letters, fun crafts, scrapbooking, origami, poems on beautifully decorated paper, etc.) And not only that, I LOVE books. Just came home with an arm full today from the library!

I am constantly bemoaning the demise of the letter. I still send handwritten thank yous. You should check out the site www.preppyprincess.com It is a shop in Michigan that sells loads of Lily Pulitzer things. You'd love it.

I really love stationery. I love pens and pencils and papers. I went through a stage where I hand made all of my cards but I haven't made a card in months. Hopefully I can set up a hobby corner in our new house and start again.
