paper presents






I got together with my crafty girls over the weekend and we did our first holiday paper exchange. Each of us went through our stash (or in Jamie's case, her Rubbermaid) of paper goods and assembled sweet, inexpensive, thoughtful little packages for each other. I have to say, we might've gotten some strange looks by others in the cafe as we giggled, oohed and ahhed over vintage recipe cards, retro postcards, old mailing labels and airmail stamps. The wheels were turning on how every piece in each other's exchange will be used for journalling or snail mail. I, of course, couldn't help but print up some personalized letterpress stationery for them :)

The paper exchange was so much fun! A new tradition?

That is awesome. I tried something similar like that with my friends and I even sold some at shows this year. But then someone accused me of copying her so I've stopped. I mean it's insane to use our vintage stash for something to encourage writing!? xoxox
