More two faced paper…

This paper is another one I bought at ‘On the Table‘, this time it’s made by Nina Campbell but it’s also a double sided paper – it seems a bit extravagant and I suppose this makes the paper expensive for wrapping paper which is just going to be torn apart and binned, but it is very luxurious somehow. Using this is slightly cheating as the choice of complimentary papers has already been made but it does make life a bit easier! It makes a very seasonal book (it might actually be Christmas paper – I didn’t check).
Kim over at Laketrees has compiled a list of ‘101 Artists’ Blogs‘. It must have been a mammoth task compiling this and it will be an huge task keeping it up to date as she has ordered it by Technorati rating. She has said she will update it at the end of every month. I was thrilled to be ‘bubbling under’ at number 11 with a rating of 76 but by today, my authority had shot up to 81 so it will be interesting to see how the rankings change! Kim is deservedly at number 2 with an authority of 353. It is an amazing resource and I am going to work my way through it and see what wonders I discover.
Growing up as one of four girls, life was often a challenge – mostly arguments about borrowing clothes. As I was the eldest, I had a Saturday job in a fashion store and hence could afford nicer clothes than my sisters and I would often arrive home just as a sister or two, was hurtling up the stairs to remove some item of clothing they had ‘borrowed’ for the day, before I spotted them. It has always been strange to me that I went from living in a house full of women (apart from my dad) to being the only woman in a houseful of men. I must say in my experience that boys are easier to deal with than girls – much more straightforward, much less ‘tricky’ but I’m not so sure I would go so far as to agree with this…
We’re not that bad are we?
