long story short, marcy penner knows what my scrap room looks like on a regular basis. hello, blackmail material.
but seriously. one of my favorite things about scrapbooking is the people that i've met. both locally and far flung. my only regret is that the far flung people AREN'T local. but email and imessage go a long way towards keeping up. marcy and i both live in words filled with pretty paper, the quirks of living + remodeling an old house, and lego + harry potter obsessed kids. except she lives just a FEW miles north of me. ;) so when her vacation plans brought her through my neighborhood, i was glad for a chance to meet her. i'm sure our boys would have gotten along famously, if they all hadn't been 8-10 year old boys and therefore unable to actually open their mouths and talk to each other. ahem. sam was a crazy ball of showoff, and molly was polite, kind, and happy to be getting her hands on some xmen comics. and getting to put a face with the name that's in my inbox all the time was totally worth a little kid awkwardness. ;)
a little housekeeping :
happy monday! the time change + a gray morning has me moving slowly. there's just not enough diet coke in the world for this sort of brain fog. sam's got a buddy coming home w/ us after school - i'm hopeful that keeping him busy will let me finish up some scrap + house chores that have been lingering for way too long.
