.....A million more to go.......
I am now "current' from mostly 2008 through this weekend. The retreats are two fold, however. Good progress, but more importantly? Reconnecting with good friends!
It is nice to know that I am making progress each time I go on my retreat. I actually chuckled to myself at one point because I remembered a some comments a few weeks ago that my quilts are often "uncluttered".
My scrapbook pages are mostly like the one in the photos above! So I guess I like a lot of things uncluttered!!! Occasionally I do a complicated and elaborate page...but they sure do slow the process down. Choosing my paper, deciding which layout to fit all the photos, and picking embellishments is complicated enough.
And no, I am not afraid to put ribbons, flowers or use feminine paper on my scrapbook pages. I used to try to be "masculine" about my family album, but after I had completed two 100+ pages of my Sports Album years ago....I did not want to do one more "blue" page!
I still do them occasionally....Just not all the time!!
The one tricky part about leaving all my boys behind?
They manage to be a bit mischevious! When I saw this blurry picture pop on my phone, my first reaction was "Awww, Button is doing his favorite thing. Pushing his shopping cart!"
Until I realized that what I thought was a brown floor was actually the coffee table!!
I proceeded to laugh out loud.
But when I read this caption on Mr. Boss's Facebook:
I snorted out loud!
Then posted this:
Did he really think that a picture like that could make me leave my retreat!??!
