I metnioned on FB that I was going to a crop all day yesterday when someone said, you mean you have a whole day to yourself and you're not going shopping, or getting your nails done, or something relaxing? You're just scrapbooking? Which ladies, you understand, right? I mean having an entire day unineterrupted by the family to just scrap with my girlfriend is wonderful.

So ladies if you had an entire day to yourself, would the thought of going to an all-day crop cross your mind?

I should say I do take time for myself. And yes I do love clothes and shoes, so I shop, I just usually do those things when I have a couple of hours to myself. But those few moments when I get entire days I usually use up cropping.

The blinky is clickable!!

I love my scrapping time, but I'm probably the strange one here, in that I don't particularly like all day crops. I LOVE scrapping for several hours either by myself or with friends, but I've done a few 12 hours crops and didn't care for them that much. The last one I left after 6 hours.

So for me, when I have uninterrupted days, I spend a few hours scrapping, and the rest gardening, organizing, curling up with my kitty and a good book, or to watch a movie. Those are my perfect restful days.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

OMG, I would KILL for a free day to scrap the time away!!! I have yet to have a day off from baby duty...not that I can really complain cuz that's my choice. My mom and MIL are completely willing to watch her whenever, I'm just still having some attachment issues! LOL! I would LOVE to have even just a few uninterrupted hours to scrap!

I like to scrap as well, but I need a break every once in a while. I think scrapping for a couple hours and then maybe doing something else for me would be awesome.

I've been tempted to ask Rich if I could spend a weekend at a hotel to just scrap and sleep. No kids(other than Kimber)around. I know I would miss everybody dearly but I am with them 24/7 and I'm lucky to get 5 hours of sleep.

I am not fond of shopping, except for getting spacific things like scrapbook or video games. Things like that, what I call fun shopping lol.
