Scraps Before Snowpocalypse

Well today all of us Midwestern-ers have been battening down the hatches for Snowpocalypse tomorrow. It's supposed to start around 1:00 AM here and my area is in the 15-17 inches range right now! I'm not a big fan of snow and I really wanted to go to the gym tomorrow, so I'm a little bummed, but at least I'll get some time with the husband!

So while everyone else was scrambling to buy milk & bread (we got ours yesterday), I've been at Michael's scrapbooking all day. :) Some of you may already know this, but I'm the Scrapbook Instructor at the Michael's in my area, which I adore. I get paid to play with paper. It doesn't really get much better than that. Every first Saturday of the month I get to host a 6-hour crop in the Michael's classroom, which is way fun. But since the snow is getting ready to set in, no one was here today. haha So I just got some quality time alone with my thoughts and gluesticks.

I'm still working on my damn 2012 Vacation Album which has been taking me FOREVER to put together. Especially since I've already been on another vacation since then. I'm so behind. I'm not sure you every get "caught up" as a scrapbooker, but that would be a dream come true. I'm almost to the point with this album that I'm ready to just slap in some Project Life divided protectors, put the photos in there, and call it good! haha But I won't because I would never be able to live with myself. haha

I'm going to try to get pictures posted of some of my vacation pages in the next few days! I love scrapping vacations because the pages are usually very tropical and bright!

So to all in the Midwest, good luck out there tomorrow & be safe! To everyone else, be glad you're not buried in snow with a -40 degree wind chill!

ms.bates-- Thank you for your nice words! Believe it or not, I'm actually getting back into the swing of things hopefully now that my work schedule has slowed down! It's been a rough year, but hopefully I'll be able to get back to a normal schedule!
