Paper Madness!

Howdy, ya'll! Hope life has been treating you well! I just wanted to talk a little about some serious excitement that's going on inside of my head. You have all read about me wanting and loving to create crafty stuff, and that inspiration has recently been renewed. Not too long ago, L and I were wandering around downtown Middleton just exploring what it has to offer. We happened to stumble across a store I've never heard of called The Regal Find. They have all sorts of unique items in there, many of which are created by the store owners and people just like me! They do sort of a 'consignment' shop arrangement, where, if they are interested in what you create, they will sell it in their store, and you get some of the profit. I have NO idea if they'd like my envelopes or anything I come up with, but I feel really inspired to give it a shot. If that goes well, maybe Etsy isn't too far behind. And if worst comes to worst, then at least I have some fun little things to give people I care about! :)

Over the last week or so, I've been obsessing over an online company called Oriental Trading Company. They have TONS of stuff, including a huge variety of cardstock and scrapbook paper that I adore. Just yesterday, I made a pretty significant paper purchase that will allow me to create a ton of unique and fun envelope sets - which is my first plan of attack. I ordered a sample box to see if my envelopes would fit inside, and if so, then I want to create a variety of sets of envelopes to be packaged nicely. If I'm lucky, they'll sell. If not, then at least I'm still creating (which I love) and can brighten someone's day with what I make! Below are just some pictures of the paper I ordered yesterday; some are themed and some are just fun. My apartment is about to become a madhouse! ;)

 Get ready for some fun creations coming your way, folks! :)
