If you've been reading any length of time, you know there is a scrapbooking retreat I attend every March and October. It begins on Thursday afternoon and goes until Sunday afternoon. Well, this Thursday, I'm leaving for the spring retreat and I am SO excited!
I remember the first time I went...I went in with my big rolling cart filled to the brim with scrapbooking supplies. Which consisted of paper, scissors, tape runner, markers and stickers. I thought I was hot stuff with the rolling tote. What I saw there knocked my socks off and let me know what an amateur I still was!
There were women with multiple totes, rolling high back chairs, ott-lights and accessories piled high on their table. I saw them using things like Cricuts, chalk, embossers, Xyrons, and all manner of things that I had no idea even existed!
I have become those women. I load up my big rolling comfy chair and every pice of scrapbooking equipment I own and load in. AND I LOVE IT! I'm determined this year to get caught up. I'm not that far behind. I just have what's happened this year for Jenna's school album and then I think I'm all caught up in her regular book until about summer of 2010. I want to do the South Africa album before I forget. But I need to look back and see where I am. Anyway, that's more than you want to know I'm sure.
Just know that this long weekend, I will be busy, NOT blogging. Making friends and catching up. I can't wait!
