would anyone like to join a handmade paper swap?  I have made tons and tons of paper through the years, but I'm amazed at what others are creating.  I would love to share/receive handmade paper.

I'm not nearly organized enough to organize, so let me know if you are willing, or interested

I love this idea, but I am in the middle of my first swap and send outs aren't until Feb. 27. I make my own paper and stationary a lot. I hope a lot of other people like this idea as well!

Great idea, I'm still waiting for my 1st swap feedback too.
I'm loving this idea as postage would be pretty reasonable from overseas! It would be great to send to a few people and get a variety Smiley

I just made my first papers today and had so much fun.  I could be persauded into this, but I'm a beginner so I worried that I might not turn out a good enough product...

I learned in a junior high art class - So I've never had to research it on my own...sorry.  But for Chirstmas one year I gave a friend a kit I found at Micheals.  Just a basic paper making kit.  She learned easily and got off to a great start.  I think the directions in the kit were really good.  I'll try to find what that kit was called and get back to you.  It seemed kind of $$$$$ so I used a 40% coupon

The Michael's kit is a must have for begginers and a should have for pro's. Definately give it a try. HINT: buy cotton linter, this will give you more consistent results and make you feel more confident.
