Hello Kitty Back To School

It's that time of year again! The local Sanrio store stocks wonderful Hello Kitty back to school items like spiral notebooks, new pencils, pencil boxes, special student planners, and of course, my favorite, notebook paper!

The year before last, I went and got some paper, but I was so late getting there (August I think) that they only had a few left, so I think I got one packet. It was gone quickly. Last year, I went nutso and bought something like 6 packets. I still have 2 unopened of that kind. This year, I just can't afford to spend that kind of money, since the paper is, shamefully, $6.50 a pack. Yes, yes, I know, it's insane and how could anyone spend that kind of money on paper?? But I love it and it makes me happy, so to me, it's worth it. I bought two packs. One of each of the two kinds they have this year for Hello Kitty. They also had Kuromi and Choco Cat, but I just don't think I'd ever use 150 sheets of those.

I realize that my love for stationery is an obsession, but I can't help it! Someday, I hope that I have the money and the freedom to start my own store stocked with all kinds of cutesy stuff like stationery, pens, beaded jewelry, cute flip flops, candles, etc etc etc. Just going in there every day would make me so happy. I would love to design my own stationery, honestly. And if someone was crazy enough to let me get ahold of a Hello Kitty design license... to put her image on some of my own stuff... that would be insane.

Anyway, it's back to work, and with T out from work this week, my readership is slim today I'm sure, considering that she's usually a large part of my "regular crowd". Oh well, nothing is going to make me unhappy today when I have the very cutest new paper to write on as I work. Have a good one all, and if you're lucky enough to have tomorrow off for the holiday, Happy Fourth of July!
