A scrapbook page. I actually completed a page. However, I have to admit I didn’t do it from scratch.
You see, this weekend Z is at a retreat and Big M and JV are hunting. It is opening deer season for youth. I stayed home to clean my den. I am going to my sisters’ annual scrapping weekend in Maplelag, MN next weekend, so I need to organize my room before I could even begin to thing about packing. The den was a disaster. I worked from 3:30 until 12:30 on my room on Friday. I already have 3 large bags of scrapping accessories I am going to share and donate.
Then I got up this morning and started again. I came across a couple of things to list online to sell. I stopped cleaning and listed several items either on Ebay or on our local sales site. It include a couple of carts that I had in my room that just weren’t working for me anymore. Also listed some large items that were in the garage. Have to make room for a snowblower. It is going to snow, even though I am trying to deny it.
In the process of cleaning, I found this snowman layout kit I had completed probably back in 2003 when I took a class. I set it aside. Then I came across these photos of the boys building a snowman in 2005 back when we lived in Boise. I decided to just stop and put the layout together. It felt so good to put it together and scrap. Now I am really excited about next weekend with my sisters and my niece.
It definitely is a dated layout. Rarely do you see paper piecing on layouts any more. I don’t care. I think it is cute. I have finally used a started layout, and I have rescued some photos from a pile of stuff.
Yep, I love productive weekends like this. Now back to my den. I have a lot more work to do.
