so much beautiful paper! I ended up buying several sheets which are mostly still waiting for me to put pencil to them. Soon, I tell them, very soon.

All this lovely paper is located in a lovely art store named University Art because this, it's original location, is very near to Stanford :)

I read an end of world novel this year in which paper was precious because it was no longer being made. Since then, I feel very guilty if I waste any and try not too.

The book should be mandatory reading, although I think people are becoming much more aware than they used to be especially in packaging. Even amazon has a way you can let them know if a vendor you bought from used too much packaging.

And the name of the book is...? because I love, weirdly perhaps, distopian novels. (spellchecker doesn't like 'distopian' so I clicked to see what it wanted me to use. It's only suggestion is 'pianist :) 'Silly spellchecker)

It might have been Lucifer's Hammer which was set in California or maybe another book? I can't remember. Oy! Lucifer's Hammer was written in the 60s/70s and it shows it age with regard to how it treats women though I did enjoy the science in it.

My favorite dystopian novel this year was Zone One by Colson Whitehead. One of the best i have read. Set in Manhattan. Literary!

I can't wait to hear what you have to say about it. I was literally bouncing in glee reading it.

It's actually my dear friend Cindy's table. We celebrate with her family every year and you are right, it is a great tradition!

I don't think I would have been able to resist buying some either. :)

I'm like a kid in a candy shop, the only thing that stopping me from buying the whole place out is the cost, most sheets are several dollars each.

Re: Art store paper department
As do I. Every time we go there I pick up a few more sheets, which actually makes some sense since it seems like the paper gets more and more expensive every time!

Well, I found another paperphile, he he he.

I received my heritage core kit from Amazon; it's Project Life. and the designer paper. The designs are busy but look amazingly good done with cards printed in antique or sepia.

Re: paperphiles
I checked out the Heritage papers on amazon and the set is lovely. I can imagine they'd look great off either antique or sepia colors. I hope you'll post some photos of your completed cards.

We would have loved to have you even though I'm sure your Thanksgiving looked very similar and was just as delicious :)
