i heart the Paper Source

have you been there yet?  if you haven't, go now.  it is AMAZING!  not all of us can be like my girl JEM - Aqua Bride who has it going on when it comes to D.I.Y. - me?  not so much.

that's where the Paper Source comes in.  

i went there the other night in search of some cute thank you notes and that's when the inspiration hit me. they have workshops and classes (click HERE for a list of classes near you!) where you can learn how to carve your own stamps, fun frames, paper collage art, paper flower gardens, flower felting, summertime party invites & favors, rookie rubber stamping, calligraphy classes (for all you DIY-ers out there, you can learn to do it yourself and save the $ you would have paid someone to do it for you!), and girls night out - sassy personal stationery!

i signed up for the girls night out option because i either wasn't going to be around for some of the others, or the time had passed.  here's the description:  What woman doesn't love having her own stylish collection of stationery for personal notes and letters? With rubber stamps and a colorful variety of inkpads, we'll create fun, sassy and sophisticated stationery that you can proudly send to friends, family and colleagues! You'll get to use a wonderful selection of our rubber stamps - florals, funky patterns, borders, and monogram letters. We'll teach you masking and tone-on-tone stamping techniques that you can use while mixing and matching note cards and envelopes in a variety of colors! Bundle your handmade stationery creations in a lovely linen folio, which comes free as part of this Girl's Night Out! Plus, we can't wait to show off our new "wood veneer" stationery samples!

oh and PS - did i mention they have wine and appetizers?  sold to the blonde in san francisco!

  1. That sounds like something i'd definitely be interested in. Anything with my middle name (DIY) in it, i'm there.

    Thanks for the shout out and the playlist by the way.

  2. Cool! I thought about getting a monogram stamp or an embossing press so we can just buy blank cards, but I'm too lazy. LOL
