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!
