Bit by bit the stores weren't carrying much Basic Grey. Then most stores didn't carry it at all. It just wasn't selling. Basic Grey always had a classic look but they never moved much with the trends. And as much as I love Basic Grey, I really haven't acquired many of the new collections in the past few years. The lines that I have found, often vintage lines, I tend to hoard instead of using.
They really are a bit challenging to work with. They really are very busy patterns. I have a pretty healthy stash of Basic Grey as well as my well organized supply of vintage. I will guard these goodies and value every bit of their goodness.
Will paper crafting phase out into just planners and pocket pages? I'll be hanging on to all of my stock pile just in case. I guess I just don't like change. I'm that mouse that just can't figure out how to move to the new pile of cheese. I'm still blogging when the majority have let go of the writing aspect for the convenience of a quick sentence, 27 hashtags and a photo on Instagram. Okay, now I'm just sounding old! ;) Goodbye Basic Grey. Thanks for bringing so much scrappy joy into my days.
I'll leave you with a photo of my new favourite hat for charity. Is there such a thing as "knitlifting"? I have to give this lady credit! A good Alberta girl from down south!
