Shoes vs. Washi



Last month I went to CA to see my parents and I returned home with a suitcase full of craft supplies, tortillas, and Sees chocolates. #priorities It didn't take me long to unpack because I really wanted to get crafty with my Michael's haul and all the other things I'd left behind during our move. So as I was unpacking and organizing my stuff, I realized two somethings:

1. I didn't bring enough corn tortillas.
and
2. I own more washi tape than shoes.

The latter was a zero-regrets realization. I love washi! I use it a lot in my planners, traveler notebooks, and even snailmail. It's one of my craft staples! And honestly it should be one of yours too.


So what is washi tape exactly? Well... It's basically adhesive tape with a decorative pattern that's used for craft purposes--mainly papercrafts. However washi is great for all types of projects and you can find heaps of washi DIYs and inspiration on Pinterest.

Personally, I love that it's not super tacky, and because of that, you don't have to commit and you feel comfortable making mistakes. I call that a washi-win!

I know my collection pales in comparison to other crafters... I'm cool with that! I'm not jealous. At all. (HAHA! Yeah right!) Actually, I'm sure my stash would be bigger except I'm really picky about the patterns and colors I buy. (Are you like that too?)

So now tell me, friend (and be honest)! Do you own more shoes or more washi? Let me know in the comments below!

And while you're at it, check out this cute washi on Amazon:



Also check out the washi selection at Scrapbook.com. They've got heaps of it and their international shipping isn't too bad! Click below:

  2. My washi collection is growing so much, I think I better stop buying it or I will be near hording status.

  3. That was hilarious. I was coming by the check out the pocketletters information, but this was brilliant. I approve of more washi than shoes! I finally got into the washi phenomenon, but I've been doing it sparingly. Which is a little tough because they are often sold in sets rather than single rolls. But I'm often on the look out for the spooky kind and bats. Thank ye!
