saw a tool that got you so excited that you just really, really wanted it! I have now two days in a row. The first was in an ad my husband was reading me. It was the most incredible wood crafting tool I'd ever heard of. I want it. :) When I told my husband, he laughed as if I was joking. I wasn't (why do they laugh?). The sticky part is that it will cost over $1800.00. So, I probably won't get it any time soon. Then today, I was browsing the forums on Etsy and saw the most wonderful product. Here's the link:
I saw a tutorial for paper making that a wonderfully gifted artist on Etsy by the name of Sparklerama had put together. Here's the link for the tutorial so that you can learn too!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182021.0 The tutorial got me all excited because I'd always been interested in learning the skill, but didn't really get it. The way it's taught on the tutorial, I actually understand it! Not an easy feat and kudos to Sparklerama. I was tinkering with the idea of getting out to the shop to make the screens I'd decided to use. Now, I don't have to and I get all the goodies with the kit too! I ordered it pronto.
TuomiHomeCreations is a Canadian business that is well known for beautiful mosaics and mosaic supplies, and I am thrilled that she is now offering these kits for home paper making. She told me that she learned the art of paper making when she was real little from her grandmother. She'll make them in any size that you request and sends the cd to teach you what you need to know and a paper that she developed on the history of paper making too. If you get as excited about great opportunities to learn something new and want to try papermaking, here's her link so you can purchase a kit too:
Hand made paper is beautiful and incredible in texture and I can't wait to play! Special thanks to Sparklerama and TuomiHomeCreations for their gracious agreement to allow use of their information in this blog.
