red botanical

i feel like i've been neglecting my etsy shop again. i don't know how i always get so sidetracked....i have SO many things that i want to do and the day is gone before i even get started on my list! anyway, i was out snooping for supplies the other day and saw this paper..... and immediately started to drool....so, it went in my cart....automatically.


actually, if you've visited my blog before, you probably already know that i didn't just buy one sheet of this paper, i bought three. that way when i use one, then i'll still have two. there's logic there somewhere....it's when i try to explain it to my little dutch boy that things get sketchy.....

Lori, your jounals are just exquisite. The workmanship is so beautiful. I have made books too but they don't look like yours. (:

Oh my goodness....I had to sit on my hands for awhile so I didn't push the "BUY" button on your Etsy shop!!! This is luxurious, rich and totally beautiful, Lori!! I know you will sell it right away, once people see it. Maybe you should have bought more of that paper. Where oh where did you find it?????? I LOVE it!!!

Actually more than pretty!
I want to learn coptic stitching. Guess that is next on my to do list. Love the paper.

i do the same thing when i find something i love - i can't stand the thought of it wearing out or being used and not being able to find another. so i buy in multiples. i'm notorious for doing this with clothing. i'm sure i look like i wear the same thing every day, just in different shades!

beautiful book!

This is sooo gorgeous! And I fully understand your logic...the one about buying three pieces of beautiful paper so you can use one...and still have 2. (P.S. Thank you so much for your very sweet comments, Lori. You're the best! Did you get my autumn thoughts of warm wooly red socks?!)

That one sold fast! It is gorgeous. Are you going to post some tutorials? Or have you already?
Thanks for the comment on my Dave Ramsey blog. It was encouraging. Oh, and guess what?! PVB is getting a Chick-fil-A soon! Woohoo!

Oh my gosh...How PERFECT your beautiful journals are! I love that paper... this journal is sooo gorgeous! AND, I so see your reasoning for buying three pieces, after all you have to have one more to use, and of course one to keep for yourself, forever!...I'm sure your little Dutch Boy understands, he sounds very sweet! ;) Hugs, Paulette ;o)

I Love this paper and I understand about buying some "just in case," which is what I tell myself. You never know when you'll want more of something you love!
