Thanks so much to those facebook fans who responded. ALL of the responses were great and I had such fun reading them!. If you missed the thread on facebook, it's worth checking out.

Meanwhile, in the "great minds think alike" category, my scrap-bloggy friend Lain Ehmann posted a similar post on her Layout A Day blog last week. Her post was entitled… You know you're addicted to scrapbooking when.… And she lists 13 signs. You should check out her funny list here. My favorite was sign #8 which was, "You make so many furtive calls to your Creative Memories / Stampin Up / Close to my Heart consultant that your husband refers to her as "your dealer." Lain always has a fun way of looking at this hobby we love :)

And finally, if you missed the facebook thread last week, feel free to chime in here with your own silly signs of being a scrapbooker / addicted to scrapbooking!

    All true though I seriously can relate to number 4. After a stressful day I will tell my husband that I need to go to the scrapbook store for therapy!! In the long run it might be cheaper to go to the therapist. Hehe. Natural high! Right on!!
    xoxo, Christine
