Laurie came out my direction today so we could shop and scrap. Sadly, my normal scrapbook store was completely uninspiring today. They’re supplies seemed to be a bit thin, though they had gotten in a few new papers since I’d been there last. One problem might be that they’re making room for the new stock they’re expecting – scrapbook companies trot out their new lines at a convention in mid-July, and then ship to stores sometime after that, so new stuff should be on its way soon, I assume.
Anyway, despite the uninspiring store, we did walk out with some fun new supplies, and went back to my house where we each worked on a spread. Laurie did an awesome “Connor’s first ballgame” spread, and I worked on a spread with my two nieces.
As usual, we didn’t have enough time together, but we did get re-inspired to work on our own, and are talking about getting together in a couple weeks.
After Laurie headed home, I worked on a second spread of my Halloween pictures from 2003. I’m finished, for now, with the major scrapbooks that I had on my list (i.e. wedding and cruise), so I’m now going back and scrapping my random pictures from each year, going back to about 2003.
