I need to scrapbook, and I was going to have a small crop at my place tomorrow night...

one problem..I tore apart the kitchen getting it ready for the remodel. I started painting and this stuff was suppose to have a 1 coat gaurantee if you used their tinted primer, well, it's not. It is looking like primer and 3 coats of paint. Man my arms ache, and there is no way I will have it back together in time for a crop because the kitchen table is the normal meeting grounds.

I am so bummed.

Plus it has been hard around here because the hubby is away in India for 2 weeks. Ugh, and it is spring break...love it, but the boys I have discovered need time to themseleves. They are just getting underneath each others skin...and not to mention my patience.....isn't it true though when you ask for more patience what you usually get in return is a huge opportunity to try and challenge that patience you asked for. I'll get through it.

So sorry I haven't been scrappin. We've got one co-host delivering a baby, and one that is knee deep in house remodel.

The blinky is clickable!!

Are you at least taking before and after pics of the kitchen to scrap later?

I'm sorry you aren't going to be able to have your crop... what a bummer. Hopefully things will settle down soon and you'll get more "you" time!

Chanda I am sorry to hear that the painting will take more coats than it said. Make sure you take pics...I can't wait to see how it turns out.

I hope the 2 weeks fly by for you and DH is home to help you with the kids. I completely understand the patience thing...thinking about you and hoping you get through spring break!

Oh Chanda...that sucks about the paint...I just painted Cam and Teagen's rooms so I feel your pain.

I'm sorry you haven't been able to scrap, but I bet your kitchen will look brilliant once it's done. And Lizzy is right - you can have before and after pictures to scrap.

Thank you to .hoodihoo.this. for my beautiful siggie

Chnada, I am sorry the kitchen remodel is taking longer than planned. I am with everyone else, I hope you are taking pics of the progress. Hopefully you will be able to scrap soon. Are your eyes getting better?

Sorry your kitchen is cutting into your scrap time, but I know it is going to be gorgeous when it is done and it will probably give you so much inspiration!
