Yup. Obsessed is the word

It's this time of year when most online perusing scrapbookers start to slather about the mouth a bit. Their conversation gets a bit narrow (if you're not a scrapbooker.) They start to dream in paper. January means CK Hall of Fame contest is around the corner. It means CHA Winter, the biggest trade show of the year. It's when all the new trends for the next year start percolating to the top and we get to see what we'll be playing with over the next 12 months.

I have to say, I'm starting to do the same thing. My conversation lately has included "Las Vegas" in at least every other sentence. I search message boards for signs that other manufacturers have released yet another teaser of the new CHA releases. Yes, it's a bit obesessive, but it's better than obsessing over what type of diaper I'm buying and whether or not Bubba will learn to read before he starts school (signs point to yes.) Well, better for me anyway. ;)

As if all of this wasn't bad enough, I've decided that I will go ahead and enter HOF this year. I'm not expecting to get an e-mail from Scrapbook Answers over the next couple of days, so HOF is the next big thing. It's a good challenge and when I sat down and mapped out what I wanted to do for my entry, I found I was halfway there.

Oh and Scrapworks is also supposed to be making a decision next week. It's all enough to make my poor husband decide that he hates paper.

Ah yes. January is the scrapbooking version of Fashion Week or the Cannes Film Festival. Good luck with HOF! How cool that you're halfway there!
