Seth’s Stacks

Over at The Altered Page, Seth put out a call for stacks.  He’d taken a photo of a stack of his journals which led to Heather Campbell from Blissful Things, to say ‘I love stacks of paper and handmade books…we should all take a picture of our own. Maybe Seth you have a place we could post them?’ His response, “Great idea Heather. Ask and ye shall receive.”

Here’s my stack, which turned out to be an engineering adventure to balance papers of all different sizes (yes, I should have pulled the smaller ones out, but I thought it wouldn’t cause too much of  a problem – wrong).  I was completely energized seeing all the colors and I even found a paper or two that screamed to be used on a journal page!

    Wow! I am having s o m u c h f u n — each and every stack I’ve viewed so far is original and just a delight to look at….not to mention thinking about all of these people rushing around and piling and balancing aiming and shooting – from all corners of the world – it’s magical. Your second photo is my favorite – wavy and full of joy!
