Do you ever just get some of your favorite scrapbooking stuff out just to look at it and mess with and play with it?

Or am I weird?

My desk top is a mess with my son's pinewood derby stuff and too tired to clean it off today but not too tired to sit here on my bed and mess with my totally all cool tote that's filled with embellies and maybe go through a paper pad and the embellies that go with it.

Maybe it'll inspire me! I sure need that.

Am I the only one who does this!

I do it. Sometimes I just need to put paper together and see what might happen. Sometimes I just need to test the tools. Sometimes all I like to do is print my photos for different layout kits I'm putting together for crops.

sometimes I just like to get my box of stickles out and gaze adoringly at all the different bottles.

When I walk past my Craft Robo or my Expression, I just have to pet them and smile. I also like to just open my digital stamp folder and look at them and like to open drawers in my organizers and just look at what's in them.

I look through my paper packs all the time-I'll pull one out knowing full well it wont work with what I'm doing but I'll look through it anyway-all those pretty colors and patterns...

YUP!! Me too!
I used to tell myself I was doing it so I would remember what I have in my stash-- but, I guess the truth is, I like looking at my stuff!!!
Just another sign...
Hello, my name is Leslie and I am a scrapaholic...

And that is the precise reason it can take me an hour to pick out paper for a LO, I tend to get sidetracked by the pretties

I do it lots! I think that the pp and embellies and flowers are so pretty that I just can't stand not to handle them and think about future layouts... and dream of adding some more! I love seeing my brads all tucked away in their little tictac boxes by color. And my flowers in their little divided boxes by color. And the rich colors of the Bazzill!! I love feeding my addiction just as much (if not more) than the addiction itself!

I do this. Sometimes I don't have the time or energy to scrap. So, instead, I just pull out random scrap goodies and drool over them.

My friends think nothing of me having a paranormal group and investigating supposed haunted places and a couple are even in the group now. But I think if I told them I get out my scrapbooking supplies once in a while just to play with them they'd think I was crazy! lol

I doubt it! They are probably are guilty of the same thing if they are scrapbookers!
Now if your start resembling Gollum (Lord of the Rings) and calling them your "precious" it might start moving toward the eccentric side!

I love getting my distress inks out and just inking and stamping some papers just to see what combos I can come up with. Lately after I'm done inking i'll get my perfect pearls and Sizzix Texture Boutique out and running it on through. I love what i'm coming up with but havent't figured out a way to transfer it to my layouts yet.

Hi! By looking at your scrapbooking supplies, it just fuels your creativity! You may not create a layout or card at that very moment, but the idea wheel can start to turn...so, in answer to your question...Yes!

I do this too! I just love looking at all of my fun stuff! Plus, sometimes the staring turns into re-organizing, so that's helpful.
