Very awesome - proud of you!

I completely 2 layouts and tomorrow will try to do 2-4 more. Will be hard with my son and his family here but the ones tomorrow are just a lot of photos to arrange on paper - nothing fancy.

I made 6 cards yesterday *all alike for a swap) and designed another one to make 6 more. I finished my mini album for a swap and today, I'll finish up the cards and start on a smash book for a swap. No shopping for me, I spent all my sb money last week.

Great going......are you going to post pics?

I know what you mean by shopping to much and scrapping too little. But, I found the cure for me.....for my birthday my best friends put together all the shelving for my scraproom and now I can't stop scrapping. Everything is o organized and in my reach. Last night I finished a 2 page layout and it felt great.

I hope you keep it up and keep going.

that is what I keep telling DH! We are still working on my scrap area but life keeps getting in the way of us finishing. The other day DH was not even sure we should keep going b/c I am not scrapping much.... we do not fight (argue really) much but we had a (loud) discussion about that. We defiantly have an understanding now and after easter is over we will get back into the next step of the scrap area.

My husband taught lock picking in the army (yes, its part of green beret training) and got my 37 year old son interested in lock picking becuase it really is a challenge to figure out some of these locks. So now my husband picks up locks everywhere to pick and my son and husband race picking locks. They enjoy it, they think it is really a challenge.

Anyway, John has my ;entire scrap table covered with locks and lockpicking equipment. Even a small vice for holding locks while picking them. I was going to scrap. My space is completely gone and I'm home alone for a couple of hours.

Okay, I'm moving all these locks.

Funny story - our neighbor got locked out of her house and her deadbolt is upside down and backwards. I have no idea how she got out the door and locked the deadbolt. Maybe she just lost the key.

Anyway she and her 90 year old mother were standing outside while Bill was trying to get them in. After a few minutes the older mother looked at Bill and said, "You aren't very good at this, are you?"

BIll just thought, "Thanks a lot, I'm standing out here in the heat trying to break into a lock to get you into your house so you can cancel the locksmith that you called - the lock is installed upside down and backwards and I'm working in a bent over position where my hand doesn't fit against the door jamb and you don't think I'm very good."

However, he did get them in and then called and cancelled the locksmith.

Okay - moving all John's things out of here.
