I, too, love all sorts of papers. Social Security, however, doesn't leave much $ to buy what I need (not to mention what I want!). This package looks awesome and would be such a blessing to me. I love to have a large variety on hand since I never know in advance what direction my crafting will take me! Thanks for this chance! (P.S. I also love to collect angels!)

I hit the wrong button. I like to collect books that are over 100 years old. Now, I have to watch my fingers so I don't hit the wrong button again. :-)

I am a general crafter mostly a card maker at the moment so I have a lot of small collections but I love my collection of greeting cards- I get people to give me their old cards and I mount them in books-I even have some my mum made into a book for my children 25
+ years ago-she cut them up but I leave them whole-they are so pretty to get out and look at.
