I received a birthday surprise in the mail. Above and beyond my normal birthday cards, I received a card from the owner of my company and included inside of it was $100 visa gift card. For a long time, I have been wanting to trade out my ten year old paper shredder that jams up all the time with a shredder that gives finer shred. Since it was still in working order, I could not justified it.

|Shredded paper to recycle|
The bottom sample is dry and the top sample is freshly pressed and still wet paper. You can't fold it because it is a heavier paper.

It can be cut, written on and used as a background base for a birthday card. I can't wait to see how I decide to use it. (I have too many projects going on right now to think about the plans of how to use it.) When the pieces dry, I will pack them up and put them away for a time. I also have a few more pieces of tissue paper to shed into the mix and then I will empty the tray so that I have a good base for making more paper later.
