There was once a discussion on here of ways to find free paper, some on line.  I thought I kept up with all the places people added, but I can't find it anywhere.  Do any of you remember where it is on this group, or if not the places to find it?  I am trying to get into mixed media, but the little I have that I could use in this is packed away somewhere.  Wish I had a dollar for every time I have used that word.  It is a piled up mess here with boxes all over.  I had planned to move by now but fell twice and just about did myself in.  I am not able to dig much.  I need paper, mostly scraps and things to use in mixed media.  I have tried to pick up a little here and there with sale bins and once in a while a coupon.  I now have more doctors and meds so haven't been able to get anything in a while  Also, had a surgery that was botched that is still giving me problems..  I have to go to a neurologist next week as I slid on ice and the first thing to hit was my head on the patio.  I have had a headache that never goes away ever since.  I get up with it and go to bed with it. It picks up speed as the day goes on.  I am up now as I can't sleep. I don't know what they will do as I can' t take pain pills.  I also have some little black floaters in my eye on the side I landed on and occasionally something like white wispy clouds go across my eye. It has taken me months to get a doctor because of my useless family doctor.  I also need to go to a osto doctor as I did a lot of damage to my ankles, knees and hips.  So, ignore me if I ramble or don't make sense.  I tough someone might remember where this whole list of stuff was.  I don't even remember the group so have been searching and can't find it.  Not helping my headache either.

Sorry Maggie, I haven't come across a free paper list on this site yet, but that sounds like a really great topic that would be really benificial to everyone. Why don't you start a discussion or topic about "free paper sites" maybe in the art supplies group or the mixed media group and everyone can write in where they get free papers now, so that it can be a new list, or we can bombard you with suppliers here. I am sure people would love to share.

Here's mine: I sometimes buy from Jacksons in the uk (they ship worldwide) you can get free paper samples and other art supply samples for free you just pay postage, the website is www.jacksonsart.com  I haven't tried their paper samples yet, I got a sample of golden heavy gel gloss medium with my last order, brilliant stuff. I would have got more samples but postage from Uk to Aus is nasty.

Another idea is to start a mixed media paper swap, we all buy paper from time to time that doesn't suit our purposes maybe people would be happy to swap.

Good luck Maggie, sorry to hear you health isn't good at the moment. I hope that you will soon feel a little better. All the best

Thanks, Jess. for answering.   On one of these groups we had a discussion one day about ways to get  free paper.  I a lot of people send links where you could get samples.  I asked again before and no one seems to know anything about it.  It was a very good list.  Wish I could find it  Postage from where you are to the US would probably be expensive also..  If anyone knows of any places would you please share.  I do have some papers but they are all packed away somewhere to move if I ever find a place and get able.  Mine are mostly when I was doing cards with rubber stamps years ago.  A very long story I will spare you.........Thanks, Maggie

Thanks.
