I'm often late to the party . . . bide my time . . . ponder . . . and sometimes, I never arrive at all. *quietly chuckling*
I know that not every "thing" is for everybody. Couple that with being a stubborn wretch; if everybody's stampeding "that way", you'll often find me heading in the opposite direction.
But not in this case. I have resisted Washi Tape involuntarily. It's fun stuff. Cool. Pretty. But, how to choose among the banquet of delicious yummy-ness that is Washi Tape? It's one of those I-must-have-it-all kinda paper crafty goodness. Not just a handful of colors or patterns. I want ALL of it. Yikes!
When I was teaching down in Sacramento, I squealed to find some at Stephanie's Paper Garden Boutique. Trembling fingers, I reached out to grasp one package. Into my shopping basket it went. I tried to distract myself with some Brilliance Dew Drops I didn't yet possess, eyes darting furtively back to the display of Washi pretties . . . I was mesmerized . . . the magnetic pull proved to be too strong, in a "resistance is futile" kinda way . . . I meandered back, fighting the urge to knock anyone in my path outta' the way . . .
Two more packages jumped into my basket.
Note: This was very fun to make–I haven't done anything collage-like in a long, loooooong time; I'm rusty! But man did I ever have a ball. There was a lotta' bouncin' goin' on, I tell ya'! *wink*
