Breaking the Silence

I feel that after this long break I should have a really legit reason for not blogging. Sadly, I don't have anything really exiting to report. Between the daily activities, our weekend out of town, and my almost pneumonia, I have not spent a lot of time in my craft room. Okay... that isn't completely true. I lied. I did manage to squeeze out a couple of Valentine's Cards. And I have been spending some time sorting out my recent purchases. 

You might find this shocking [I did] but prior to last weekend I  did not own neutral cardstock. I did not own black, white, or Kraft cardstock. This realization came about the usual way. I felt "stuck", and finally decided that it might help to theme my albums, but not just with a paper collection. I like how many of my peers use one paper throughout, usually a neutral, as the backdrop. And of course, that is when I realized I did not actually own any neutral paper. Hard to break the crafting silence when you don't have the supplies you need! Michael's was having a 3 for $10  so I decided it was the time to purchase. I like to call it predestined shopping. Combined with my other recent purchases I think I have the paper I need to complete at least 6 albums/projects.

Don't believe me?

     I'd like to thank Two Peas and Bucket, Busy Scrappin, Heirlooms by Design, & Micheal's for fueling my addiction.

I am now on a self prescribed ban of crafting stores until I make those 6 albums. The only orders I will now be placing will be for photos. I am kind of notorious for taking hundreds of photos in one sitting and NEVER printing them. I finally sat down and ordered prints from our trip to South Dakota last May. I only have about a thousand more occasions to upload and order. I think that will be my official March project.

Thank you for stopping by, and expect to see me again this Wednesday for WOYWW!

I'm guilty also of taking of taking pictures galore and not printing them. That is why I'm working on years old photos cos that's the ones I have at home when I want to do some scrapping.
