We've lived in this house for about 22 months now. We still have so much stuff we haven't unpacked. It's stuff we don't need on a daily or weekly basis. It's stuff from the past and who knows what else! But, I've been working on my stamping/scrapbooking room and have gotten some great shelving units and organizers. I've been sorting my scrapbook paper. Who knew I had about 2000 pieces of paper!? And, I just happen to know where a ton more is out in the garage. I've always been a paper lover. I've always loved to cut paper. As a child in the 70's I'd cut up the old Sears, Penny's and Montgomery Ward catalogs. I'd cut out a "dad" and a "mom" and lots of kids. I'd cut out furniture, clothes, the whole nine yards. Sometimes I'd glue these paper dolls and accessories in a scrapbook. Remember those old scrapbooks with construction paper-type pages? I still have mine, with all my fancy stuff glued in! lol
As a teenager, I cut tons of paper to make Friendship Books.
As a getting-closer-to-40 year old woman, I still cut paper! It's very therapeutic.
For me anyway. It drives my hubby nuts.;-)

I love paper too! Can't ever have too much. :) It's so great to see you're still doing what you love. :)
