Out and About

Years ago at one of the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) shows in Chicago we were able to sneak away for a short time for my first ever visit to a "PAPER SOURCE" store.  We hopped on a train and made the trek to the shop that was there.   I have loved the store ever since and always make it a point when traveling to stop if I'm ever near one.  I am thrilled that Arizona has finally gotten our own Paper Source, located in the Scottsdale Quarter.  

 Love their beautiful stationary and paper goods.  

Lots of ideas and workshops.

 Great wrapping, cards and just lots of fun stuff.

A few of my favorite things when I recently visited them - 

Notice the large silverware paper...

This cutlery table wrapping paper comes in a roll
30" wide x 50' long

Cute pillows here!

lined notepad for you special someone....

A notepad with a perforated stub on each page.  Each stub has a lovely thought that can be torn off and used wherever you want to leave a sweet little message.

Fun valentine frame....

This fun store is best in person, but if you don't have a Paper Source near you, visit them online.

Have a great weekend,


  1. Oh, I'd love to come shopping there!!

  2. I don't know whether to be sad that I don't have one of these amazing stores near me, or to heave a sigh of relief. Like I need another excuse to buy paper. are a most wonderful enabler!

  3. Erin and I were there recently and got our "fix"! We decided it best to not plan aloud...because when we do, something always comes up to spoil the fun!

  4. I totally agree that Paper Source is ultra fabulous! The nearest one to me is a 4 hour drive, but totally worth it! Last fall I saw the cutlery paper in the store and thought it was so cool. It is really large and such a big roll! As for the other goodies, I have a weekness for it all. I got the "love you more" pillow for my 8 year old last valentine's. :). Oh how I wish there was one closer...I do online shopping with them too, but the atmosphere is delightful!

  5. I happened to visit one this past week in Santa Barbara. I was looking for a bookstore and found a Paper Source practically next door! What a nice shop:)

  6. I haven't been to mine recently and I definitely need to go -- I love that glass tray -- mostly what it says!

  7. great pics!! you did the place justice....and thanks for sharing your favorite things! they sometimes have their own fun stamps too....
