I'm a fire hazard. I have hoards of paper. I love to use paper in my work. I love to visit specialty paper shops - nothing was quite as special as carefully selecting from the spoils offered in Venice! I have this trick - if I do what I call "me first journaling", then I free myself to be able to use the paper in a project. How often do you collect cool papers but never use them? Do you wonder if you should save it in case a better use for it comes along? Don't be silly, use it! Then you can shop for more! Take a little clipping and attach in your journal. Let the piece flap up or pivot on a brad so you can write underneath it where you got it, when you got it, and maybe a note about why. Then use it!! Here are some of the treats I brought home in a waterproof tube so they wouldn't get damaged during the Aqua Alta of Venice last year.
