I Am A Confessed Paper Hoarder!

I am. I also like to collect paper flowers and embellishments even though I usually have no use for them. For the last year, I have bought pretty scrapbooking paper almost every trip to the craft store. I just love it and I don't really know why because I have no desire EVER to scrapbook! I just don't have the patience for that sort of craft. Also, I like art that I can put up right away and enjoy, rather than wait for others to visit to show them my scrapbook album that I worked so hard on. I's the memories that are important, right? Right now I would rather pay someone to scrapbook my pics for me. So...what the heck am I suppose to do with all these supplies?? Well I accidentally stumbled across an idea! I am excited about it, but I am not sure if others would feel the same. As I sat and painted frames the other night, I started to experiment with paper and flowers. I came up with an idea that would display the pretty paper I have and cute (not to mention expensive) paper flowers I have collected throughout the year.

I think they would compliment a room that holds a shabby chic look with a mod spin to them. Think Amy Butler! I love shabby chic that is not too Victorian looking and not too country looking. I like the femininity of shabby chic and the simplicity it possesses. So that is why I adore these pieces of framed art. They are bold, colorful, and shabby chic all in one!

Cute idea! I'm sure you could sell those. (I hoard notebooks instead of scrapbooking paper! Oh, and magazines!)
