Thank you for sending your colourful paper catalogue. It was very thoughtful of you.
I particularly liked page 28, with its bright colours. It made a splendid postmodern paper flower.
This seemingly simple shape gave me a brilliant idea. Sooo brilliant. (not)
With pages 30 to 38, I made a Samba Crown for my dear Gestalta, an artist figure I bought a while back at your MOA location.
That is almost too meta for me. It will probably make my husband cry.

I’m sorry, I have no intention of buying anything this year. But all that paper will enable hours of creative fun. So I sincerely thank you.
About next year: if you could make your seemingly square catalogue a little bit more square, that’d be great. I’m tired of cutting the pages to size.
And… if you could print it locally, on sustainably sourced paper, using non-toxic inks, you’d get a much cleaner commercial karma.
