It's Official

I did the unthinkable (for a scrapbooker) yesterday.
I bought a box of 50 handmade cards from Costco. For $12.
Because I have been unable to muster the strength, desire and inspiration to make my own cards.
Despite the fact that I have spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars on scrapbook stuff over the past 3 years.

I am not sure where my mojo went in regards to creating paper crafts. It could be the fact that I go to bed around 8:30pm which is putting a damper not only on my crafty side but also denting my sex life. I also can't seem to organise a thought about any kind of page layout.

I did manage to make a card for my niece a few weeks back - and I will make her an album. But it will suck all of the energy I have to complete the task.

For now I am a scrapbooking untouchable.

Hey Tassi, look at it this way - you buy the cards so you can save your energy for scrapbooking the family photo albums. That's what I tell myself, anyway, because I ALWAYS buy cards that way - it's the only way I have a card available when I need it. I never remember to buy them when I'm out. Of course, the 'baby' just turned 1, and he has yet to make it into an album because I am so far behind (not even sure if the older one is in!), so I am not sure what the excuse is for not getting the albums done. Life gets in the way, and I'm busy living it, not scrapbooking it (or at least I tell myself that when the accusatory, ever-growing pile of photos gives me the hairy eyeball!!!)
