Confessions and Obsessions of a Paper Crafter

Days 14 and 15 - Behind as usual.

I know we all started this December Daily book with GOOD INTENTIONS, and I think I did pretty well for the first week. But I am finding the closer we get to "the Big Day", the harder it is to get my pages done. And having to go to work isn't helping, either. Plus the printer ran out of ink, and I haven't had a chance to get out to get a new cartidge.

Which explains the lovely "photo" on Day 15. I don't have the picture yet for this day, so I drew one. This picture explains why I never did very well in Art at school (I like to think that if scrapbooking was part of the art process, I may have done better).

Today has been a difficult day. My hubby and I were out to coffee, and I accidently left my bag of exercise clothes and shoes at the coffee shop. I realized what I had done about an hour later, and went back, hoping that someone had turned them in to the staff (who'd want my old gym shoes, anyway?)

But it appears there is no Christmas spirit in Maple Ridge, as some Scrooge thought they might like to keep my stuff.

It's not that I can't afford to replace the clothes and shoes, or that getting a new tag for the gym is a huge problem. I just feel violated. I don't like thinking that someone is wearing my clothes, looking thru my bag, with not a care as to whether it would have been a hardship for me to lose those things. This is not the first time I have had something stolen. I felt the same way last time too.

Christmas seems quite far away today....


  1. I will say what I'm sure Ali would're never behind. Somehow it seems even less fair than normal when such things happen to us at Christmas, doesn't it? I left my personalized Starbucks tumbler at a meeting, and the thought of going back to look was just too much. Sigh.

    I suspect I had too much on my mind to be attentive. :(

  2. I have to agree with you, the idea of an album is fantastic and fun but I thought that I would not have to think about what went into it. I thought that we ALWAYS have something to put in and time to do it. NOPE, not in this house, life seems to be getting in the way LOL. But I wanted to let you know that your pages are so nice, They make me wanna reach out and touch them. Dont get me wrong, digital is so nice, but yours looks so touchy feely and I like that. Keep up the good work, I can't wait to see what comes next! Merry Christmas!
