a love note to paper
You make me so happy. Recycled, handmade, kraft, rice, lace, scrapbook, magazine, mulberry or Japanese, all of you hold such possibility for creative adventure with your myriad personalities.
I love the smell of you between the leaves of a fresh, bound book; the sound of you beneath my pen as I pour my thoughts across the page; the varied texture of you between my fingers, and the subtle shades and hues of you that colour my world.
Through our lifelong partnership we have ventured into the arts of book and card making, jewellery-craft and mixed-media collage. Never have you ceased to amaze me with your diversity, though I feel we have barely scratched the surface (if you will pardon me the pun!).
Paper, to live in a world without you would be such a soul loss, and I am so glad I don't live there!
Yours always and forever,
