Washi Paper Hoarder!

I love Japan and all it has to offer but what I find really fascinating is how they make these intricately designed washi papers and how they use it on their crafts. For the last couple of years I have been hoarding it like we would be leaving Japan the next day! 
I was telling myself I would be using it for my scrap booking but never really had the chance to do so. 

The other day when I went to the store to find some Goo Gone to help me remove the sticky labels on the plastic bottles I have recycled on the previous post, I stumbled upon 3x5 notepads on SALE!!!! so needless to say I bought them all too! 

some card separator that i used for the cover
Sometimes I drive myself crazy, if an idea comes to mind, I have to work on it like some mad woman that if Fed Ex can deliver here on base they would have earned so much from me for wanting to ship things overnight so that I can have them handy for my next project!    Jeremy kept on telling me to finish one project first before moving on to the next one but I simply cant, right now I have like 4 different projects at the same time! Im darn lucky to have him as a husband who lets me do what makes me really happy! 

I have been thinking about these notepads for the last couple of days now, so finally last night I sat down and started working on it until 3 in the morning! Nonstop, measuring, cutting and pasting! I told myself I would stop at a dozen =)
