Over the past 24 hours I’ve been obsessed with making scrapbook pages. I branched out from quilting photos and moved on to whatever I could find. I’ve come to the conclusion that 1999 was a big year for me. I have lots of quilts done that year and the husband and I actually went on vacation.

I went looking for inspiration online. There are some serious hard-core scrapbook makers out there. I was impressed and intimidated!

Scrapbook stuff suppliers don’t seem to make things that fit my life. You can find quotes and papers for every stage of your kid’s life. But what about when you want to make a page about your dog being embarrassed by a helium balloon tied to his collar? “Humiliation” doesn’t seem to be a theme they sell a lot of. There are lots of “pets” things as long as your pets are only dogs and cats. I’m doing rabbit, bird, and horse pages. I ought to start my own line of supplies. I’m going to call it Thinking Outside the Box or something.

My favorite ‘this is not my life’ moment at the scrapbook store was pursuing the TRUE FAITH set of papers. Of course it featured crosses and other Christian motifs only.
