Scrappin' Again!

It wasn't too hard--I just decided to do it and it was FINE. and FUN. I am working on the family and friends album and the baseball album, trying to get caught up. Since I don't really remember the details of the baseball trips, I have many pages with blank journal boxes. I'll have to go online and get some details from the games and stadiums so I can add details.

In the family and friends album, I have been using the power pallettes and ENJOYING them! The colors and designs are just perfect for quick layouts. Above are the two I worked on this past week--mine and Karen's birthdays. I just really love the coordinated papers and stickers.

Enjoying it again...about damn time.


Just couldn't do it.

I tried. For six hours, I tried to scrapbook. OK. I didn't try that hard. I just busied myself doing other things:
  • I organized paper
  • I put stickers in pockets according to themes
  • I browsed the new catalogs
  • I bought some overstock at 30% off
  • I helped my sister with her layout
  • I ate lunch
I did not, however, scrapbook a single thing. When will I be ready? I'm just not feelin' the groove yet.


Back in the Saddle Again

So my sister and I are meeting our usual monthly scrapbooking group for a day of scrapping tomorrow. It's the first time I've even thought about it in a few months--I have not scrapped since some time in February, I believe.
And to tell you the truth, I don't even want to do it tomorrow. I have just been so bummed out lately with Dewey's passing and my mom's declining health that I just don't feel the joy needed for scrapbooking. Work sucks, and this summer is not shaping up to be anything special.
Oh, I know...quit complaining already...
We'll see how it goes tomorrow. But first, I have to face the mess that is the craft room and assemble my bag to take tomorrow. Maybe I can put that off until the morning...
