Confession: I Don't Scrapbook

Looking for the Norah James Designs giveaway?  Scroll down or click here. 

Okay, so you all know that I am a Paper Freak.
{If you don't know that... did you miss the title of my blog?} 

I am a Paper Freak.

I love paper.
I love being creative.
I love design.
I have a secret dream of designing a line of Scrapbook Paper.

I have a basket of my essentials on my work table {just the things I use every day}:

These are the machines I own:

A Laminator

A Xyron

A Cricut

A Binding Machine

Not one Paper Cutter...

but three total.

One wall of my office looks like this:

But here's the thing... I don't scrapbook.
I made one scrapbook in high school and one in college... and that's it.
I didn't scrapbook my wedding.
I have never made a baby book or any sort of scrapbook for my son.

I tried to start digital scrapbooking.
That was a colossal failure.
I spent weeks on one book, got through about 10 pages and gave up.
I have never finished it.
I have several credits in my Heritage Makers store that will never be used.
I am too much of a perfectionist.

I'm thinking about renting out time in my office to scrapbookers.  
It seems like someone should be scrapbooking in here.


  1. Your paper wall makes me lightheaded with envy. Will you come organize my office? and more specifically, my paper? I think I spend most of my time sorting through the stacks.

  2. Oh man, I don't scrap book either but I'd just love to spend a day playing with all of your supplies!

  3. I can't believe you gave those two, awful paper cutters the honor of being on your blog and I also can't believe you don't scrapbook.

  4. I like those paper cutters. They were good to me (although... admittedly I never use them anymore, but Brooke still does).
