This blog is about...

...writing, paper crafting, and the clutter that ensues...

...OR the story of my life.

I find myself writing a lot, mostly because I am currently in the process of writing a dissertation, but there are a lot of other things that I would like to be writing about outside of my very specific academic world. Hopefully, having this blog will encourage me to write more. I love paper, especially the patterned kind, and I like to use it to scrapbook, make cards, and for general inspiration. As I begin to follow more and more paper-crafting blogs, I have been dreaming about having one of my own. And because of my dissertation, my crafting, and the general state of my life, I have a lot of paper clutter. This too is connected to the blog world - thanks to a blog, I discovered an online paper decluttering course that has dramatically improved my state of paper affairs. But, paper, paper, everywhere remains, and so that is what I have decided to title this blog.

A few pictures to prove my point:
This is my desk at school. As you can see, lots of paper.

This is my desk at home. Oh boy, even more paper.

And this is me at work in the guest bedroom, my so-called craft space. I think you're getting the idea.
