You never know just how much you have of something until you put it all in one place. Part of my craft nightmare is that I have paper oozing from every corner of my humble condo. Visiting 5 paper stashes spanning 3 rooms just to find the right paper for the project is not an effective use of craft time. *she admits, nearly blushing*
Believe it or not the above picture is before I consolidated my paper into fewer bags. This closet is about 2 1/2 feet by 4 feet which gives you an idea of the impressive amount of paper you see in it. I hoard paper like every sheet is the last of its kind. Sometimes it is. I would like to drop the mindset that I'll never find another sheet of paper I like as much as I like my latest purchase. Is this obscenity or obsession?
Clearly my fears are unfound. This is the after picture. I've discarded bits of scraps, there are now fewer bags and the difference is not shown in the quantity but in the organization. Bags are actually organized by type of paper from 12 X 12 to rolled light weight and flat watercolor. My mind feels lighter already without the load of "where in the hell did I put that sheet of paper" weighing on it.

This is one of my new kitties, Phoebe. She and her sister, Flora eagerly volunteered to help with shredding and any ribbon unraveling projects I might have. They are such characters. Next up, Kellie paints her first room. Toodles for now.
