the cutest tape ever

oh, for the love of craft supplies... we have pitifully little storage space in our apartment and i'm constantly torn between buying supplies that i love and then realizing that i'm hording. and i hate clutter. when it comes to cute stuff the choice is much more difficult than when it's boring old junk. for example, i decided recently that we had too many comforters and left the spares out back for neighbourhood folks who needed them. i think we were saving them in case we had sleep-over company? but of course, who's going to want to sleep over on our couch and be woken by a baby eleventy times a night?

but what to get rid of to make room for fancy tape?! until this very moment i don't think i've ever coveted tape or even really thought about it unless we'd run out in the middle of present-wrapping. but now? wowie - happy tape! adorable japanese washi paper masking tape. good for - whatever. anything you'd use boring old plain tape for, i suppose.

my fave has to be the teal grid set. i'm thisclose to ordering. i would use it for gift wrapping, i think. with plain brown paper, stamped with adorable little kawaii characters. i carve my own stamps from lino, and now, typing this, i realize i must have this tape to complete the wrapping on presents i have yet to buy! :-)
