I love this kind of craft.


Love the article from McSweeneys - Thanks for the laugh.


Aby, I've gotten the tape from numerous sources. If you look up "washi tape" on Etsy you'll find a huge array of designs from different vendors. But be careful - once you buy your first roll, it can quickly become an addiction!


Nancy, I agree with you. I'm an extrovert with a job that requires a lot of solitude. But it gets awfully lonely when you're tucked away for so many hours at a time - and if I didn't work at my dining room table, I fear I'd never see my family!


Margery, I know exactly what you mean! I have pretty little notebooks that I'm afraid to write in. I like the humble nature of the spiral notebook - it gives me the psychological freedom to put everything in there, important and not. And when I get to the end of one, I always find myself going back to the beginning, flipping through all the scribbles and lists and notes to myself, along with ideas (some good, some awful) and thinking, "Yep, that's my life."

I think you'll appreciate this article from McSweeney's:



I just came home with round 2 of my MS spiral notebooks. I can't tell you how much time I've spent at bookstores and office supply stores looking for the perfect daytimer/calender/notepad/planner/receipt and fabric swatch keeper. aaaarrrrrgh! I always come back to the basic spiral notebook. I think it's because it is not too precious to hold all my lists and the scribbling artwork of my kindergartener.

I'm glad to hear that I am not the only one who crafts on the dining room table when I have a perfectly good craft room. It was upstairs and it got to the point where I was actually lonely up there all by myself.


Where did you get the tape? Love it!
