"Last ditch effort"

Well, it's no surprise really. I've been saying it for some time...my will to scrap has really waned over the past year. There just seems to be so many other things I'd rather do. I never, ever, ever, thought I'd feel this way. Maybe 10 years is long enough? I used to live & breathe scrapbooking...hyperventilate with excitement upon entering a scrapbook store...experience euphoria everytime I picked up patterned paper...stalk the mailman for my magazines & packages and now...nothing. No excitement at all.
It is so upsetting to me, truly. I can't imagine this. I kept thinking that this is all just a normal phase, but I'm beginning to think that maybe, just maybe it isn't a phase. Maybe, just maybe, I'm done with it. You know, time to hang up the adhesive and call it an album.
However, I have decided to launch a "last ditch effort" campaign. I have signed up for the 3 month subscription over at Bad Girls. I have always loved the kits that Wendy puts together and figured now was the time to throw all caution to the wind and give them a try. I'm thinking that if these kits can't turn me around, nothing will. I'm hoping that between the kits and summer vacation on the horizon with no work, I may experience a scrapping rebirth. However, if I still have this same "blah" feeling toward scrapbooking by the Fall 2008, then I hate to say it, but I'll be packing it in for good. Look for a big sale on ebay!
But first, wish me luck as I begin the "last ditch effort"!
