25 ways to tell if you are a scrapaholic!

There haven't been any new posts in a few days (okay over a week) because I've had strep and on top of that all kinds of crapola has gone down in our family and it's been a high stress time. It is high time that I let my scrapping calm my nerves a bit so look for more posts soon. In the mean time I had to share one of my favorite things I've read in a while. Thanks Krislyn for sharing it with me :)

25 ways to tell if you are a scrapaholic!

• all of the Internet addresses under your favorite files are scrapping sites
• the box that holds your paper is too heavy for you to lift.
• the first thing you pack when going on your vacation is your scrapbook stuff.
• more than one scrapbook store recognizes your voice and greets you by name when you call.
• a regular sandwich is no longer must be cropped or cut with decorative edges.
• when you are house hunting the only thing you are concerned about is where you will have your new scrapping space.
• you are very excited when the doctor says you can take pictures of him putting the stitches in your child so that you can make a page.
• you burst into tears at the camera store when the clerk tells you that you will have to send your camera to the manufacturer for repairs and it could take 6 - 8 weeks.
• you carry a camera everywhere you go.
• you check several scrapbooking message boards every few hours and switch back and forth between them to see if there are any new posts.
• you decide to give your child piano lessons so you'll be able to use the musical instrument stickers.
• you find photo splits stuck in places inside your underwear!
• you have more than two scrapbook projects in the works.
• you have re-done at least one page
• you have scrapbook shops programmed on your speed dialer.
• you have supplies you bought six months ago and have never used them.
• you have yet to get current on your latest project and you're already thinking of a new project.
• you keep buying baby stickers even though your baby pages are done, just in case you need to re-do them.
• you plan birthday party themes according to the stickers and pretty paper you can purchase.
• you start thinking of having another child just so you can even out the pictures on your pages.
• your child is the only one in class who thinks "crop" means "to cut your photos".
• your children ask you if the toilet paper is acid free.
• your 15 year old dyes her dark brown hair BLONDE 3 times in 4 days, and you say "Here, let me take some pictures so I can do a page on this before your hair falls out".
• your three-year-old wants to know if her coloring book is "archival quality."
• you're arguing with your three year old to give YOUR stickers back!
