I realized that while pursuing one dream another was being birthed. Yep, the birth of my paper dream. I dream of paper. But not just any paper. I dream of all kinds of paper: personalized stationery, notecards, memopads, notepads, journals and jotters, too. I can't stop dreaming, so I started making a few pieces for fun; for me. I even bought a new printer (and it prints nice and crisp, too). Then, I got really bold and decided to open an online shop. Now, that was scary and exciting. I've not told anybody (other than my hubby and you guys) about the shop. I wanted to see how far I'd get without sales from family and friends. Well, to my surprise, quite a few items have sold and I'm still excited. I'm beginning to believe that following my paper dream may not have been such a bad idea at all. I received an order yesterday from Hawaii. Wowzers! That was very encouraging. So, why am I telling you this? To encourage you and tell you to keep dreaming, chase your dream and have fun while doing it. So, what's next for me? I plan to keep following my paper dream and see exactly where it'll take me. But in the next few weeks I will have completed my next endeavor - little chevron jotters (like the one in the pic above; behind the mug).
