things i love – bits of paper
I recently used my entire collection of paper beads to fill up a vase on the dining room dresser. originally, I had planned to use them as a garland for my extra large home sweet homemade Christmas tree this year.
that little decision puts me back in the paper-bead making business again, taking full advantage of the constant stream of paper delivered for free, right to my own mailbox. just a few beads per day. I never fail to become energized with the simple beauty of each.

my own paperback book dust jackets are similar–
the antique door project I completed last week included paper in a starring role and the finished product had a bit of a textile look. so with that in mind, I thought I would travel down the paper as textile path a few steps to see where it led.
just a little peek at the progress so far. very time consuming, but such a pleasing effect
thank you for reading ~ hope your weekend has been absolutely splendid!
