Thought you all might get a kick out of this Funny.
A NON scrapper friend of mine sent it to me.
I think it is pretty accurate! haha.
Wife says to husband...
"Look - I got invited to a 'party' and I won't have to buy a basket, or
jewelry, or candles, or even another plastic container!
This party is different because I'm going to MAKE a page for a scrapbook!
I'm going to learn how to put all those pictures we keep in a box into a
photo album that will last lifetimes!"
FOR YEARS AFTERWARDS what can be heard in the home:
-"How much can a pair of scissors cost? And why do you need an entire
cutting system if you bought scissors?"
-"The photo album was HOW MUCH? You HAD to get a paper trimmer too?
Then please tell me ..what are the scissors for?"
-"How many magazines do you need to buy to be INSPIRED? And what's with all
-"You want what for your birthday? A xyron? What the heck is a xyron?"
-"I don't understand why you need a digital camera. The 35mm I bought after
college works just fine."
-"OUCH!!!! I just stepped on one of your %&*(*&% eyelets! "
-"MORE paper? You haven't even used up what you got already!"
-"First the camera, then the printer, what's next a scanner?"
-"I see..so if we get these target cubes you'll be able to see the paper you
have and then you won't have to buy anymore?"
-"Son, how many times have I told you - You CANNOT play with MOMMY's
-"I don't get it ..why do we have to go to Lowes to get paint chips if we
aren't doing any painting around here?"
-"Don't worry sweetie..we won't tell Mommy you borrowed her stickers to make
Barbie look pretty."
-"You had a 40% off coupon and you still spent over $100??"
-"What do you need all this yarn for? You don't even knit! Do you?"
-"No dear. I do not know how to scan and stitch. Maybe someone on YOUR
message board can help you there."
-"Who took Daddy's sandpaper?"
-"It's 11PM. Isn't that layout done YET?"
-"Shhh..don't tell Daddy that Mommy borrowed his sandpaper."
-"Yes, I guess we can stop at that cute little scrapbook store during our
-"You're going to take a crap? I meant going to a crop... nevermind."
-"NO MOMMY! NO MORE PICTURES! NO MORE PICTURES! NO MORE PICTURES!"
-"So who is this Becky Higgins and what's the big deal about her? She an
actress or something?"
-"I thought you already had a sewing machine. So what's this one for?"
-"No..I've never printed on vellum before..YES..I can help you figure out
the right printer settings..but what the heck is vellum?"
-"Queen of the week doesn't mean you won't still make dinner, right?
-"You just joined a what? A swap? I'm really happy for you honey."
And the hardest one of all...
-"Where did all these boxes of pictures come from...I thought you were going
to put them all in a scrapbook! "
I was laughing my head off... I am sure I have been though a lot of these... including stamping ones as well with Ken.
Thank goodness Andy has never actually viewed my mess. He prefers to think I have only a few things. Yeah, right. I scared him the other day when I said I needed two more Iris carts. He said isn't that what I said the last time? Oh c'mon, it's been months. Obviously, I've bought more stamps since then. Hahahah!
You crack me up! You just wait til the two of you finially figure out a living arraingement, and move in together! Hahahaa... Boy will He be in for a suprise!
Yeah, my art stuff is going to be a fire hazard! We would really need a 4 bedroom place. One for a bedroom, one computer room, one for my studio and the other one for my clothes, shoes and erm, my handbags!
Oh my god......
so freaking funny!!
I'm really trying not to accumulate more stuff (as I buy more and more things!). The local women's shelter might be receiving several donations from me this year instead of my yearly donation.
