Paper Source Called…

And they want their inventory back! J/K A friend of mine who spent years in the hand-made wedding invitation business recently decided to move on and change career directions. With this big decision came the next big decision to purge her wedding-related inventory that she collected for years! She thought I could benefit from her collection and asked if I would be interested. Oh boy, was I! It took her two trips to drop all this off, and apparently there is more to come!

Any paper and craft fanatic loves Paper Source… and I’m no different. A rainbow assortment of text and cover weight papers.

Oh wait, here’s the rest of it! I was only partially kidding that Paper Source wants its inventory back, ha! And not just text and cover weight… Stardreams, plain vellums, patterned vellums, textured hand-made, washi papers…

Hello, Elfa drawer system, also kindly gifted by my friend! Can you believe my good luck?! Unbelievable!

But clearly, there is no way I can use all of this good stuff anytime soon, so I’ve called over my friend and invitation designer (Fran of Junefille) to take her pick. It’s like being a kid in a candy store, right?!
