It's a challenge!

Yes, it is. Remember that "no spending on scrapsupplies challenge" I have going for myself. I am still going strong. 25 LOs done as of yesterday, but geez, it is hard. Now, I guess I had a bit of a "fix" on Monday when my Scrapologie kit came, and that's probably the reason I dove right into my new supplies. There are so many new paper lines and embellies coming out. Then there are sales. The big annual "Sell-A-Bration" by Stampin' Up is going on until the end of February. I mean, this is probably the first year in 8 or so years that I haven't bought stamps during SAB. It's been a bit easier this year, as I have really been doing a lot more scrapping and less stamping, but still. It is HARD!

On the bright side, I have 25 LOs done so far. That means, I am 1/4 of the way to my goal of 100 LOs. I worked on LOs for the Jumpstart January Challenge.... up to date on that one, and I worked on a few that I am thinking of submitting to a couple of different mags and sites. Obviously I am not going to post those LOs until they have been rejected (I know, always optimistic, right?) but I will post the other ones in the next day or so.

I am heading off to spend the day at the unemployment office. Remember that whole "boulder lifting" thing? Well, it also means I have to figure out what to do with myself when I grow up. And unfortunately a few people think that I am plenty grown up so I really have to get a job or at least a lead or two. So, wish me luck. Hope your day is more enjoyable than mine is going to be.
