Hand made paper is spook-tackular!

There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly-lit front porch.

You might be able to tell that I am one of those adults who love Halloween!

A couple of weeks ago while I was on vacation I had 2 kids make some paper with me right on the beach. I asked them if they wanted their paper mailed to them or would they like for me to make a Halloween card out of their paper? They chose the Halloween cards, I hope they like them!

Gulf paper video ( plus lots of other paper making videos!)


Kim Schiedermayer ( Arnold Grummer's daughter ) asked me to post a picture of my card that was published in the August edition of the CardMaker Magazine.  
It's always fun to see your work published, thank you CardMaker Magazine!

We are celebrating the man behind the paper this month,
 Mr. Arnold Grummer!

Did you know?
He was inducted into the  Paper Industry International Hall of Fame on October 11th, 2012. 

“The world is a richer place because of Arnie Grummer,” said David Lee, retired former executive director of the Paper Discovery Center. “His accomplishments following the Institute are what really propelled him into the Paper Hall of Fame. He’s the paper version of ‘The Music Man.’”

I really wish I could have met this man


Make some paper and have a spook-tackular day!
