Paper and a swap and a party

Rebecca is sharing her passion for paper today, and has invited others to play along. I too love paper, and find it very hard to throw away/recycle things such as lovely brown paper packaging, or stamps on exciting foreign post. This book made itself really-I cannot remember what it was the packaging for, but it was perforated and folded in such a way that it said 'I am a book and you cannot deny that'. Only recently has it found a use-it is collecting the stamps from the exciting foreign post! Also the addresses and any other exciting ephemera such as customs labels and airmail stickers.

A few papery/crafty links to see.
Paper Doll Houses on Made by Joel
Paper Spider Webs on A Fanciful Twist
As well as paper news, I wanted to share Relyn's lovely autumn swap. There is still time to sign up here! (Just)
And last but not least, Vanessa's Halloween party on the 16th October is something to be excited about!

I have read before about your book. I think it is fun to collect stamps and foreign addresses from posts. Your links are fantastic. I like your new banner too!

Oh rats - I had just type a lovely long comment ... then I got the dreaded 'service unavailable, error 503' The short version is that the same wrapping has been used for Malcolm's, Stuart's and now my b'day pressies!

You're a girl after my own heart as they say. Only yesterday was I fishing an envelope out of the bin so I could cut the stamps off it. And I find it very difficult to throw paper away of any kind. I don't know where that comes from.
