All hail my neighbor Kate, who received a basket FULL of scrapbooking supplies for her baby shower from her aunt and then turned around and gave it to ME! She is not a scrapbooker, so gave it all to me. Yes, I repeated that last statement, mostly because it's kind of like winning the lottery for those of us who scrapbook. There are probably hundreds of dollars worth of scrapbooking supplies in there, and I'm psyched to use it! I offered to make her a scrapbook with the supplies, and she declined. I told her to keep the basket for use somewhere else, but she declined. Kate is a hoarders dream because she just gives things away never considering to keep them for future use. Now, I'm not a hoarder, but y husband is dangerously close. (can you say two motorcycle, half a closet of cloths that don't fit and every medical item he's ever been given) With my personality, I would have kept the scrapbooking supplies and used them even though I wasn't a scrapbooker. But props to Kate for knowing that she doesn't want to keep a huge basket of stuff she'll probably never use around the house. I should probably take a page out of her book, but as I look around my living room, I think to myself, after the kids are older. Until then, I'm stuck with baby stuff that is in limbo, waiting to be used or waiting to see if it will ever be used again (if we have another baby some day).
So thanks to Kate I now have a plethora of scrapbooking supplies that I need to start using before I can even consider buying anything else.
Ok, baby Glenn says it's time to eat. Happy Tuesday to everyone!
