Paper Stacks

I'll admit it, I'm a piler.
My standard housekeeping procedure involves gathering all loose items into a pile and then moving the piles from place to place.

That's why I was so excited to read about Seth Apter's  online "Paper Stacks" collaboration over on his blog The Altered Page.  Here's a challenge I can really warm up to!  All over the web today, artists are posting pictures of their stacks.   Here are a few of mine.  Pardon me while I slip into the fantasy world in which all of my piles are as beautiful as these.

  8. Did you tidy up just for the photos? Your stacks are way to organized! :) I love Seth's idea of showing your stacks, but I'm too lazy to gather my piles in any sort of order suitable for a picture.

    I love following your index card progress and I received your postcard from the Kandeland exchange - thanks so much!

  9. I clean house the exact same way! I frequently take the stacks and then hide them in baskets or things. ;) I love all the colors in your stacks!

  19. Fantastic painted papers, and those index cards look so fun piled up together like that. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous stacks. (We must have gone to the same school of housekeeping, as my approach sounds VERY similar to yours!)
