Well, I did not scrap a darn thing all weekend.
It was National Scrapbook Day and I did not scrap a darn thing. Not with my counterfeit kit. Not with the bright orange package of prints delivered Friday fresh from Shutterfly. Not with all the inspiration I pinned to Pinterest. Not with one of the ideas I found by catching up on blog reading. Not for a single NSD challenge.
Not on Saturday morning while hubby was doing some indoor painting. Not on Saturday afternoon, opting instead to furniture shop with our son. Not on Sunday after church while hubby and son did yard work at son’s house and then went hiking. Not when I was up at the crack of dawn each day, or before I called it an early night each evening. It seems I am tied up in “nots.”
I must have contracted a scrapbooking allergy this spring! Maybe I picked it up at the Creating Keepsakes convention, although that seems unlikely.
I didn’t even care to stop by Joann’s, Michael’s or Hobby Lobby, armed with coupons in my purse or on my phone, or that gift card buried deep in my wallet – when I was near all three on Saturday – National Scrapbook Saturday!!
I enjoyed making some NSD celebration rounds on the Internet and joining in a few scrappy giveaway posts that required merely commenting and not scrapping.
I downloaded a few pocket card freebies. I caught up on printing this year’s Pagemap sketch pdfs. I completed at least two scrapbook blog hops. I subscribed to new blog feeds. I added my name to email lists. I joined new groups on Facebook. But I barely set foot in the studio.
I will let you know when my allergy subsides, in the meantime I’m working on spring cleaning and other projects before daughter comes home for the summer later this week.
Here I am on Monday, with a ruler out. Thanks progress, right.
Not exactly, as you can see I have been ignoring my ironing.
I am thinking that working my way through this 2 foot tall stack will surely cure my paper allergy and drive me back into the studio. Don’t you think so? If not, I will post again in hopes that you can recommend a home remedy for this ill-timed malady. Think on that, won’t you, when you aren’t scrapping or resting up from all that scrapping that you accomplished on NSD.
What are you up to this Monday? Give Sian a wave.
