A weekend of Paper Love

As I mentioned in the previous post, I went to Edinburgh to meet some of the alumni from the PaperLove e-course. I was very lucky a couple of years back when I won a spot on the course (because of this post I did). And I am very lucky now, because I got to spend the weekend surrounded by women who are in love with all things paper, just like me.

We got to play around, and make beautiful things...

Paint hearts and then book bind them together...

And talk and eat, share stories and exchange paper...

Then work some more...

I actually had a dream (on saturday night) about rocks in the shape of hearts, and a beautiful book- binded book (it was blue of course)...

And then we finished this one, and I am jumping with joy with the result, I mean... look at those wonky hearts, and that beautiful cover? What's not to love?

So far this is all I got inside, but I don't like to rush and fill things up...

These are some of the "alumni" I got to spend the weekend with... spot the mess?? Yeah baby!!! That's the stuff dreams are made of...

 Like rocks in the shape of hearts...

Paper doilies, and my first ever Peanut Butter Jammie Dodgers!! Yummyyyy!!!

Sending you lots of LOVE and wishing a very lovely Valentine's day!


  1. Thanks for this share Giova. I also enjoyed the post you did explaining how you actually got to join in on the first PaperLove e-course. I read the names of the other bloggers involved in the Blog Hop (I presume that is why they are listed) and smiled to see a few familiar names who had also been a part of our group. It's quite remarkable how the internet is becoming a more familiar and friendly place as one collects more and more friends and acquaintances through shared interests.

    1. I'm glad you liked it Susan!
      The world is indeed a very small place :)

  2. A lovely post Giova, and I enjoyed looking at the blog hop post too. I didn't realise you had won the Paper Love course, well done you! I love the books you made in Edinburgh and those Peanut Butter Jamie Dodgers look so good! Beautifully photographed... a joy to view.

    1. Thank you Sandie!
      I thought I include the winning post here as it was my reason for meeting Rachel's work. Oh, those dodgers are sooooo good ;)

  3. Just looking at that table covered with paper goodies makes me salivate...! Wasn't it wonderful?
    I must have a go at making those biscuits - I think I have the recipe too (from Flow? Or was it The Simple Things?) And I do hope that you will make your dream blue book one day. :)

    1. The biscuits are amazing and they are form the simple things...
      the weekend was wonderful, so much paper, so little time...
      the blue book will be forever engraved in my memory, i hope :)

  4. Dear Gio, how lovely the things are you made! And I love the table. Happy you had a great time!

    1. It was a very lovely weekend, happy you like the pictures!
