"Some times, some days, I know exactly what I'm doing, exactly what I'm supposed to be doing. More often though, I live my life by the seat of my pants! Not that I take a lot of risks...just that I often have no clue what I'm doing or what will be next. I paint. Of this, I am certain."

"There is never a day and hardly a waking hour that isn't made better by paper!"
I'm not sure who said that first, but I certainly agree! I LOVE PAPER!!!

Since the invention of paper in China over 2000 years ago, we have found many creative and wonderful things to do with it. From wrapping presents, to covering walls...paper has been a splendid way to surprise and beautify. I have great fun decorating my own wrapping paper, notepaper, gift cards & envelopes. When I do it myself, the wrapping can reflect the personality of who the gift is for, the gift itself or even me!

For the next little bit, this "Projects" page is going to be about paper...You are going to need plain paper, preferably on a roll. Whether it be plain brown craft paper or solid coloured wrapping paper, doesn't matter. Also, watch for and pick up plain gift bags and gift boxes. What you can do on paper applies equally well to them too!
