* paper sampler

Perhaps the silliest thing I’ve bought off Etsy in a while: behold, my new stack of random pieces of paper from jamaica makes:

(picture from the etsy listing)

I ordered it knowing I’d like it, but looking through it in real life, it’s like she downloaded my brain.  There are at least half a dozen pages I recognize from notebooks and pads of paper that I have almost bought.  And there are half a dozen more that I have bought.  Maybe I should show off my graph paper collection some time.  It is mostly a woeful tale of my quixotic search for a replacement for my favorite discontinued lab data pad.

Anyway, jamaica makes has a blog and makes notebooks from the many papers.  They are very pretty.  I’m not entirely sure yet what I’ll make from my collection.  There are the address files by lovely design.  Most of my papers are too flimsy, and I don’t really need an address file.  Here’s a nice tutorial for little mixed paper notebooks (and a good idea to use a card as a cover).  Whenever I’ve tried to make little books before, I’ve never been happy with how even the edges look, though.  I suppose I could probably die cut them or something.  Hmm.  Need ideas.

Side note: jamaica makes also contributes to the group blog Effer Dares, which has like a scrapbook challenge theme.  It may be the first scrapper blog that has ever appealed to me.
