There are three holidays a year that get me shakey from excitement the day before and make it hard to sleep that night. One of these is Christmas (more so for Christmas Eve). The other two are the spring and fall scrapbooking expos. So with the fall expo being this weekend, I was feeling very far away and very sad. I IM'ed Kelsy yesterday making sure she was still going to represent us at the expo, but she said that she would only be going for a class on Saturday. I was very shocked, you mean you guys have the opportunity to go and you are only going for a class? What happened to happy hookey friday and then continueing on through Saturday? I told her she needed to get Hilary to take her...but she replied that Hilary had to work. Hum....so luckily when I called back later that day, she told me that her friends were going to go with her. Knowing that she was going to have fun at the event, made me feel better. At least someone was going to enjoy the shopping and crafting.
With the thought of Kelsy running around the expo buying everything in sight and organizing all her new buys to fit into her bag, I decided to get to work myself. I got into the last few boxes we haven't unpacked that contain all my stuff. And then I got to organizing. I have to say that this part of my hobby is my favorite. I like the shopping, cutting, glueing, creating new stuff, but since I started, organizing has always been my favorite.
My mom used to say when we cleaned our rooms that you have to make a huge mess to make a clean room. I transfered this idea over to how I cleaning everything. If you get it all out it is much easier to organize. KC was watching the U of U game (or in otherwords, was enjoying one of his favorite holidays) so he barely noticed the tornado I created on our kitchen table.
