    Red face Scrapping withdrawal

    Yesterday I developed some 100 photos of Kaelan and another 100 of the house renovation so far. Thing is all my scrapping stuff is put away in the basement of our new house amongst 100 other boxes. In the meantime my family is staying at the IL's for another week while the kitchen gets finished so I don't have much access to stuff. I can't go in to search for it because the polyurethane smell from the floors being finished is still everywhere. Plus I bought a bunch of new stuff at Michaels the other day and want to use some of it.

    Long story short I want to scrap so badly and can't . Time to live vicariously through all of you at least for the next several days.

    ou can plan your pages. Thats what I did when we moved. Get a notebook and treat yourself to a scrapbooking magazine. Then sketch out the pages you want to do, you can also pick which pics you want to use and sort them with a title and sketch for your page. It isn't scrapbooking but it helps the withdrawls

    Not a bad idea, I was planning on re-hitting up Michaels anyway so I think I'll pick up a couple of magazines while I'm at it. Thanks

    I agree, you are ready awful early after having a little bambino. You have your hands full don't you? I think Tia's idea is perfect!

    Ack! That sucks! But hopefully you'll have time to scrap lots and lots once you get back in your house

    I have discovered that its really easy to sketch while BFing, actually scrapping will be a different story.

    Carrie - I actually don't have my hands too full anymore because the floors are being finished at the new house at the moment so I am not allowed there due to the fumes. In the meantime I'm at my ILs' home who are being wonderful and love to help out so it eases my load but also leaves me with lots of time to fill. Basically I don't cook or clean here, and some of the time they take baby so they can play with him.

    Oh you will learn to scrap while bfing lol. Once he is a bit older and latches on alone you will have a hand free. Almost all of my pages are made with Damien on the boob lol

    Oh yeah, like NAK, only NAD (nursing at desk). Sorry you aren't able to dig in yet, but maybe like the others have said: you can sketch ideas and plan out layouts.
