Beware the dangers of scrapbooking.

If you are not sure that you can handle the physical dangers and risks of the craft, don't do it!! Please be careful and weigh out the risks. I didn't and now here I sit INJURED from my beloved craft. "How?" You ask....Good question. Today I was sweeping up the floor after making a mess during some late night scrapbooking session I was holding last night. I was sweeping barefoot, mind you. (mistake #1) Anyway while sweeping, I felt a sharp pain in my right heel, but thought I'd continue sweeping and see what the pain was later. (mistake #2) One more step down and .....OUCH!! I dropped the broom and looked at the bottom of my foot. It was beautifully decorate with an adorable mint-green flower-shaped BRAD! Yes BOTH prongs went deep into my heel and the brad lay flat against my skin. Again....OUCH!!! I jerked it out and the throbbing began. No blood, mind you, and now the pain has subsided, but I just thought it funny that the least dangerous of hobbies has caused me an injury......gee, wonder what would happen if I went bungee jumping!!

more cruise pages

I couldnt post all my scrapbook pages, so here's some more pics.

The (almost) completed crafting room!!

So I pulled up the carpet in my back living/family room, and Guess WHAT?! There was a pretty nice wood floor under there! So I have put together the room for scrappin' and card-making. YAY! I have always wanted my own 'space' in the house, and this is coming together pretty nicely. Here's pics, along with some new pages I made from our '09 cruise, since working in this room got my creativity going again. ENJOY!
