Our weekend didn’t go totally according to plan. Saturday, my wonderful father came over to help Pete clean out the gutters around the whole house in an attempt to resolve a water disaster (more on this later, I’m sure). I spent much of the day making sure Mira, our dog, didn’t run away.
I did, however, look up the hours of Joy Cards studio in Princeton, to see how late I could swing by the shop to pick up the paper for my project. Unfortunately, I discovered, that they really aren’t a store, in the traditional sense. You have to make an appointment to meet with them. They are also more of a real studio where you get custom paper projects designed rather than a store where you pick something off the shelf.
Luckily, I discovered that there is also a Paper Source right in down town Princeton! Open late on Saturday and most of the afternoon on Sunday!
When I was at Home Depot, I grabbed replacement paint swatches for the colors I had selected for the armoires. (I like to keep these on hand so I can reference the colors on the go!) I pulled them out and went to work finding something that would match.
Unfortunately, this one only had a few sheets as well. I was going to need 10. There were none that really seemed like they would work really well in coordination together, so I went to find a sales person to ask if they had more stock available somewhere.
“Nope, sorry” I could order some if I wanted, though.
First thing I did was email Joy Cards Studio to see if they had any in stock and if so, if I could schedule a time to come by to pick it up. Joy got back to me quickly and said she didn’t stock the paper, only their invites, but I could order online directly from Smock.
While I was waiting for her reply, I also found that Smock sells their papers on Etsy. But again. They only had 1 set in stock. So I sent them an Etsy convo and hoped they could add more inventory.
When Joy got back to me I checked out their website more closely – and there it was, a simple “Add to Cart” button. So I put the necessary amount of paper in my cart and checked out!
