i'm such a happy girl--my special order for hand paper made by kendra of Green Post  on etsy arrived this past week.  such beautiful texture, weight and hues, with free form deckeled edges. i chose nimbus ( a lovely warm pale grey ) and rice ( a soft bright white)-- some for myself, and some for my husband for christmas ..ssshhhhh...
the package arrived with my favorite wrapping of brown craft paper ( now sing... brown paper packages tied up with strings....) -- and it echos Green Post's commitment in using recycled goods, wrapped simply and honestly with a holistic approach. the paper sheets are bundled in recycled cardboard, stamped with GreenPost's recycle logo, -- even kendra's business card is up-cycled.  a warm friendly package-- so much like kendra-- who genuinely cares about her hand crafted recycled paper goods. as an artist committed to quality-she puts care into each sheet--she sells plant-able gift tags with seeds embedded int the paper fibers. i've noticed that she has even more tags available in her shop now- inspired by nature, and in a wonderful array of colors -- mixes of wild flower with varieties like corn poppy,  pimpernell, chinese houses , and spurred snapdragon...
if you want to treat yourself, or someone special to some fine recycled paper goods, take a stroll over to GreenPost -- you'll find something wonderful, original,  made by hand, with an enormous amount of heart.
