Today was Thursday! Thursday is when I do my run; so after work today I eagerly headed to The Paper Place to get some new Chiyo. Every week I pick a new color and buy paper with motifs in different shades of that color. This week was purple. I also treated myself to a new bone folder that i’ve been eying.
This weeks selection of purple chiyogami papers.
On my bicycle trip back home from Queen West, I decided to stop into the rock store near Honest Eds. I often wander in there when I have days off. I love the ambiance of the rock store. I could spend hours looking at the crystals and gemstones. The Rock Store carries a large variety of rare stones from small tumbles to large specimens and geodes.
Brrrrr! Today was absolutely freezing here in Toronto! I braved the cold, wrapped in layers and my favorite hand-knitted puffin mittens from Newfoundland, I cycled down to Queen West in search of more papers. It has become an weekly occurrence now, Thursday paper runs. I get in the terrible of habit of buying new chiyogami paper with some motif that I absolutely love, working with it until I am sick of it, then heading back to The Paper Place the following week for a new fix wether I need paper or not. I guess you could say I am a bit of a paper junkie. Chiyogami is my like my artistic crack. Thank God they have a massive selection to keep me pacified. ^_^
