I spend a lot of time quilting (duh, right). I attended the statewide quilting convention in July. But, I do have other hobbies. So, this week I am planning to be in the quilt shop for a few days, and then I am heading to a weekend-long scrapbooking convention. I haven't scrapped in such a long time! When I was a teacher, I spent every Christmas break and every summer vacation catching up on my scrapbooks. I had three books going at all times; one for me, one for my son, and one for my daughter. That way, I reasoned, when they moved out, they would each have all of their own books, and I would still have mine. Well, the last time I worked in my own book was more than three years ago. I made an engagement book for my son and his wife as a wedding shower gift three years ago, this fall. The last scrapping I did was to catch up on my daughter's books for her graduation. Now, I am so far behind the question is...where do I begin? I packed way more than I could ever possible do, and plan to spend much of the week this week while I am at my parent's place just organizing so that I am ready to actually work when I get to the scrapping. I think it will be a lot of fun, and I can't wait to feel like I am on a bit more on top of things with my scrapbooks. I bought a new book for my grandkids, and I can't wait to start on it!
