Beautiful Paper Makes Me Happy!

Another shipment came today, and I'm not sure many packages give me more enjoyment than the ones that contain colorful stacks of beautiful paper. This shipment contained some lovely spring colors with enticing names -- daffodil, moss, lemongrass, peony, blossom. These will come together to announce a happy couple's upcoming nuptials, a precious baby's birth, a child's milestone birthday. Mixing and matching colors create unique invitations that are personal to who or what they announce. Choosing different types or shapes of enclosures adds to the individual statement. The possibilities are endless, and the creative process is gratifying and rewarding. And we like to think that it's appreciated, creating the harbinger of a beautiful event, a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, a milestone in a life's journey. "A thing of beauty is a joy forever." ~John Keats, via Mary Poppins, one of my favorite philosophers. Mary Poppins, that is.
