So, I broke my own rule. I'm not surprised, but I'm a little disappointed in myself because I was doing so good. Remember when I said that I wasn't going to buy any new paper because I had plenty in stash already to work from? (here) Yea.
I had to go to one of my very favorite paper stores in order to get some replacement paper for the Christmas garland kit I have in my shop. Someone ordered one and I didn't have enough of the decorative papers that I had shown. I dragged myself down there with the sole purpose of getting just those papers, but then I looked around. (hangs head in shame) And while there were plenty of new things I could have gotten, I just got three sheets. Really. That's it! One is for some birthday cards I'd like to make, one is for some bookmarks I had planned on making but didn't have a good backing print, and the third is this, which I cut apart and made into magnets/gift tags and already have them listed them in my shop:
So if you are a cat or dog lover, or know someone who is, send them my way. They can be backed with magnet to put on the refrigerator, or punched and tied with a ribbon to make gift tags.
As you can see, I'm back on a paper theme for the time being, and have just finally made the decision to leave my shop (for now) as by the book paper. I'm not going to try and turn it into something it's not just to make the name a little bit better. As for the fabric listings, they'll stay for now and I'll just have to make a decision on what to do with those a little later on. No harm, no foul for the time being.
