Beautiful morning! Sunny and supposed to get close to 70 today--was the same and over 70 yesterday. Time to take the cover off the wall air conditioner.
I let the paper dry overnight, stacked it up, and put some heavy books on them for overnight last night.
Leah was planning on coming over today again to work on paper, but she got called in to work. Probably be next week before she makes it over again.
I made a quick video showing the dry paper and the stacking of the books--now up on youtube. :)
Miss Karma is soooooo happy to have the porch opened up...
...and she can't get enough of that morning sun all over the apartment!

My Arnold Grummer order arrived by FedEx yesterday afternoon!! So exciting! Got the larger papermill that makes 8.5 X 11 inch paper--on sale! In fact I think everything was on sale but the flower stickers--and free shipping when you spend over $50--tada!
With the larger papermill we can make envelopes, too. I bought a template (different size than the one included in the large kit), the real flower stickers (totally extravagant--but they are really pretty!), 20 extra couch papers, deep blue & pastel window cards (supposed to fit all those square paper moulds we have--we can make our own template from them), and the large papermill. They sent me that small multicolored packet as a gift. You use those papers to tint your handmade paper, I guess. Nice of them!
Here's everything that comes in the large papermill kit.
Will be fun trying to make envelopes! And I can also use the envelope templates on regular craft paper, of course.
Miss Karma is waiting for me to uncover the chair on the porch.
Yup! Another good day for some porch time! :):)

Handmade paper....what fun!!! It's something I always wanted to try but never got around to it. I love new supplies.....can't wait to see what else you make.
