the fabu-licious scrapalicious joy has started up a thursday love fest: 'things I love thursdays'. I think maybe one of the things I love on this particular day (which just happens to be thursday) is this 'things I love thursdays'. love is good, sharing the love is good. you can never get enough of love, or things people love. and I have self portrait tuesdays and photobooth fridays, so I could also establish meme mondays and wacky wednesdays. kind of like having a pair of underwear for each day of the week (except that we all know that I wear big ol maternity PANTEEZ). well, no-- I'm not going to do all that but I'm definitely hopping on the thursday love bandwagon.
today, I love paper. actually, I am just a little bit nutty over paper every single day of every week of every month for all of the years. I love brand new sheets of papers in bright colors and wild prints. I love crumpled up tissue paper and all kinds of stationary and the versatility of brown craft paper. most of all, I love vintage wrapping paper. I hit the motherload this past summer when I was visiting my great aunt and discovered rolls and rolls of seventies flower power wrapping paper in the basement, just waiting to see the light of day. (for temporary blindness, lookie here and here). see, my aunt worked in a paper factory and also had a difficult time throwing things away. I almost passed out, that stash was so good.
what do I do with all of this paper? I sit around and look at it. and I make collages. and cards. but mostly I just sit around and look at it and LURRRVE it.
