I *heart* paper

I was so excited last week to sell one of my pendants. Not just because I sold something (which is always exciting) but because I have been looking for an excuse to show you this paper!

I finally checked out a little independent scrapbooking store that is about 2 minutes from my house. What took me so long? I have no idea. But it was good. Really good. Probably too good, but who cares! I have decided from now on to spend my craftying money in indpendent stores like this one as much as possible. I mean really, this is just another woman trying to live her passion. That's the kind of business I want to support.

Here's the packaging for the pendant.



And here's the coordinating paper that of course I had to have as well!

Your packaging looks amazing! Great fabric, er, paper choices. I wish those prints were fabric!

Uh-oh. I should've covered my eyes... those papers are so sweet and I really have tried to stay away from papercrafting because I've already been stuffing our home with fabric that "calls to me". Now I want some of those papers. Gaaaah.

Very attractive packaging for your pendants, Roxanne. You sure have an eye for making lovely things.

Love your banner, Roxanne! It looks gorgeous. Well done, girl!

That is some really cute paper! They totally remind me of those Japanese fabric prints.

I love the paper and the pendant. And the banner - I want a banner and I just haven't taken the time to create one.
