"Scrap"-tacular

Dude. It's already October. Wow. The last time I checked, i was in Vegas ringing in 2005, freezing my ass off with a massive headache. But that was 10 months ago.

The one thing I hate about October is the massive amount of birthdays. Love celebrating them, but it's not going to do any good for my wallet....but I'm making half of the presents so it might not be toooo bad.

Today (okay, technically yesterday because it's like 12:30 here), my LSS had a 40% off sale (plus up to 75% off on clearance). The place was packed. You know how I always complain about the product in the store? You know the Disney products and stuff like that everytime they get new product? Yeah, well I realize why they have it. Them customers LOVE it. The Disney stuff wasn't on sale, but they were still looking at it. On the walls were the class samples, mostly of paper piercings. They were ooh-ing and aah-ing over those. You know those ugly (okay, that's just in my opinion) diecuts? Especially those old ones? Yeah, well those were 5 for $1 and they were picking up a ton of them. I don't like it but they do. I was going around picking up the Chatterbox, the KI Icicles, WIld Asparagus....to each her own, I guess. But since this sale is to make room for new product, I hope they balance out the Disney and diecuts with some of the trendy stuff!

Sort of staying in this weekend and resting and catching up on sleep.....I was so tired this past week. My sleep schedule was out of whack and I was cranky. When you go on a getaway with friends, it's a given that you're getting zero sleep. So I left exhausted...came back exhausted....went to school exhausted. I'm rejuvinated now, though, thank goodness.

Been scrapping a bit the last couple of days (not today, but I did make a couple of cards). What I've noticed that my scrapping comes in spurts....in a span of a couple of days, I'll get really inspired and crank out a ton of pages.....and for a couple days after that, I'll have zero motivation or inspiration. Today I'm at that point....Started experimenting with 12x12 again. I bought this Chatterbox kit last week and it came iwth a 12x12 album. I've noticed that my style totally changed when I did the bigger size. I like to layer and use tons of PP when I scrap 8.5x11....not so in 12x12. Then again, I used multiple pictures. Since I refuse to enlarge my pictures, I guess I'll use the 12x12 album for those LOs when I need to include a bunch of pictures. Yep.

Okay, this ended up being sort of a weird post....hah. Hope y'all are having a great weekend!

Ahh, the eternal question, 8.5x11 or 12x12? I think I probably prefer 8.5x11 for the most part but finding nice albums is rough! And it is super hard to fit on like 8 pictures. I'll have to go check out your lo's. Enjoy your rest :)

Interesting blog you have here, I landed here on accident. I was searching for something else and came across your site. I found it pretty interesting and entertaining. I got you book marked.

I will pop back in from time to time to see what you have new here.

My site is a bit different than yours, but just as entertaining and educational, I run a scrapbooking page idea related site pertaining to scrapbooking page idea related articles.

Oh I LOVE sales!!!! I'm all 12x12, but I might consider doing a vacation album in 8.5x11. Are your layouts on Scrapjazz or 2Peas?
