Congratulations to Carla, winner of our Spring Trends 2011 Giveaway!
Read Below for this week's opportunity for free stuff!
My Mom has an addiction to material. I never really understood it until recently, when I wandered down the scrapbooking aisles of a local craft store. I do not scrapbook, I am not meticulous enough....but oh, the paper...the patterns, the color....
Suddenly it made sense that growing up there were baskets piled with bright colored fusions of art and cotton, drawers stuffed full of subtle print and satiny textures. It must be in my genes to fall in love with patterned toile and gigham checks!
I have many sheets of pretty paper and what you in the know call 'paper ephemera' piling up in my workshop. I have some use for them, but it has gone beyond buying to use. I am full blown addicted to their look. And the vintage stuff--the stuff you can't just run to WallyWorld and pick up, well that is like paper ephemera fine wine. Meant to be used sparingly, not the easiest to find, costs a bit more to get the good stuff....
Which brings me to this week's giveaway!
This week we will be featuring the shops of Rachel @ Curious Crow on Etsy. She has graciously donated some AMAZING Vintage paper ephemera for this giveaway. This is the good stuff!
