So I have been doing zero scrapbooking here. Zero!
I am not sure why.
One layout and one mini album since the beginning of this year!
(eta - looking back I forgot the three Valentine's cards I made a few weeks ago.)
Fortunately, I have a little scrapbook getaway this weekend with friends and plan on finishing up an album or two.
So I should have pages to share soon!
The flip side is that going away for the weekend means less time with Mike.
Since he is only home on the weekends, it's kind of a bummer. It pretty much means seeing him for a little bit when he gets home again on Thursday night and then on Sunday for a bit before he leaves again.
But I think I really need this time to be away a bit. It's been a year since the last getaway, and I am looking forward to it. I really want to get some pages done!!!
I will say another reason scrapbooking has been on hold (besides the occasional design team assignment) is that it just hasn't been a priority for me. So much going on with the family and also at the kids school. I am pretty involved up there between volunteering, helping to teach art and the occasional substitute teaching. And homework has taken on a whole other level for Evan this year.
He has had a huge research project that he has been working on since November. It's something the kids do every year once they hit about 4th grade. In the past he has chosen Science as his project. But this year it was History.
The competition took pretty much all day on Saturday. And can I just say he is so funny. When he found out he was moving on to the finals, he was disappointed! He wanted to go home like the rest of his friends and not spend another two hours waiting around. But a trip to Borders while we waited for the awards ceremony, a new Minecraft book and we were set for the afternoon.
So grateful to Mike for making sure Erin got to dance and her friend's birthday party while I was with Evan. We make a great team :)
On Sunday, the four of us went to see...
So no scrapbooking this weekend.
But I did clean up in my space a little bit, since I need to start getting things together for next weekend's crop. I think I want to try and work on my Summer 2013 Project Life album and maybe try and finish the Florida Trip album I started at the same crop last year. I can't believe it's been a whole year already!
Going to take the rest of the week off from blogging except for a post I have going up on the Paper Issues blog tomorrow. Don't forget to link up your projects using Color or Numbers for a chance to win a $20 gift card to the store! So super easy since it doesn't have to be a new project. I will be checking the link ups tonight for someone to feature along with a layout of mine for the post. Would love to feature a familiar face! :) You can link up your projects on this post *Here*.
Hope you have a great week!
