Lots of reports lately, many scrapbooking related. Ah well, at least I’m back with the blogging.
So I went to a big scrapbooking event last Saturday, all day in fact, from 9 am till 7 pm. It was, I must say, a welcome break from sick children. They’re darling, but they keep me homebound at the moment, so it was nice to get away.
It was a pleasant outing, good company, tasty food, at a hotel downtown, so not too far away. either. Sadly, I didn’t get nearly as much done as I had hoped to, which put something of a damper on my feeling of how “worthwhile” it was, for me. (Though hey, I’ve got a lot planned out now, which will help for getting stuff done at home, which let’s face it, is easier in the not-having-to-pack sense. Though not usually easier in the not-getting-interrupted sense. Ah, the trade offs.)
I was much more productive in the afternoon/evening hours of the event than the morning, not just because my classes were in the morning. I fear I am also a night owl, though I wish so much that I were a morning lark. Why? Is it just the pressure of a daytime oriented world? That, too, but I think also it would be better for me, as the evenings, and by evening I mean anytime between 6 and 3 am, are unpredictable – sometimes I’m all motivated and planning and productive, and other times terribly depressed. Sometimes both. Then again, the mornings are pretty much reliably slow and semi-conscious — but at least they’re on an even keel? Hmph.
Whatever, enough of all that. Instead I will show you what I finished at the scrappythingie, layouts from the beginning of 2003. Yes, they mostly still need journaling.
